  • I still can't see the ends of the lines. You need to make your terminal wider before you cut&paste.

  • nevermind. mdmonitor isn't running on my system with a raid array. Once I populated the Notifications section, it starts.

  • so for me this means? not understanding thanks

    mdmonitor isn't running because there is no email address set. In order to set the email address, you need to setup notifcations. In the System -> Notification tab, you can set this up. Then either reboot or sudo systemctl start mdmonitor
