Binary and Distribution-specific Packages
Some distributions already include GSmartControl in their repositories. These are probably your best bet; however, I can't guarantee that they have the latest version available. Note that all the packages from the OBS project directory, as well as Windows packages, are always up to date.

apt-get install gsmartcontrolto install it. Additionally, Debian 4.0 (Etch) and 5.0 (Lenny) packages are available at OBS project directory. The OBS project also acts as an apt source.

You need to have the following software installed to build gsmartcontrol:
- GTK+, version 2.6 or higher
- Gtkmm, version 2.6 or higher
- libglademm, version 2.4 or higher. Note: libglademm is not needed when using GTK+ / Gtkmm 2.12 or newer.
Note that having GTK+ 2.12 and Gtkmm 2.12 is HIGHLY recommended. While earlier versions may work, they may produce suboptimal results and buggy behavior.
Most of these packages are probably already provided by your distribution. Here are the packages you need to have to build GSmartControl on some Linux distributions:
Mandriva: gcc-c++, gcc-cpp, pcre-devel, gtkmm2.4-devel, (possibly) libglademm2.4-devel >= 2.4.0.
Note that usually you need to specify only these packages - the rest is installed automatically by the package manager's dependency resolver. Keep in mind that you also need smartmontools to run the program.
The following operating systems are supported:
- Linux - All the popular configurations should work.
- FreeBSD - Tested with DesktopBSD 1.6 (FreeBSD 6.3) / x86.
- NetBSD - Tested with NetBSD 4.0.1 / x86.
- OpenBSD - Tested with OpenBSD 4.3 / x86-64 / gcc-3.3.5.
- Windows (2000 SP4 or newer) - Tested with Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows 8 (64-bit). The Windows port uses pd0, pd1, etc... for physical drives 0, 1, etc... .
- Solaris - Tested with Solaris 10 / x86 / gcc-3.4.3 / blastwave, Solaris 10 / x86 / sunstudio12 / sunfreeware. OpenSolaris should work but has not been tested yet.
- Mac OS X - 3rd-party testing by MacPorts and Fink projects.
- DragonFlyBSD - Code written but no testing has been performed yet. Expected to work without any issues.
- QNX - Code written but no testing has been performed yet.
