I yum installed smart and now when I try to invoke it I get this..
[root iam ~]# smart --gui
error: Interface 'gtk' not available

[root iam ~]#

Seems a dependency wasn't considered and I have everything gtk
installed known to yum... via yum install gtk*  ..about 40 megs worth
and I still get this error. Ric

Extras has four packages (smart, smart-update, smart-gui, and
ksmarttray) available for downloading. You need to install the first
three to get full capabilities.

I cannot see ksmarttray in extras.

Just do a yum smart-tray and you should get it. I got it last night just fine
Cheers, Gene
