NAME

update-smart-drivedb - update smartmontools drive database  

SYNOPSIS

update-smart-drivedb [OPTIONS] [DESTFILE]  

DESCRIPTION

[This man page is generated for the Linux version of smartmontools. It does not contain info specific to other platforms.]

update-smart-drivedb updates /usr/share/smartmontools/drivedb.h or DESTFILE from branches/RELEASE_7_0_DRIVEDB of smartmontools SVN repository.

The tools used for downloading are either curl(1), wget(1), lynx(1), or svn(1).

[NEW EXPERIMENTAL UPDATE-SMART-DRIVEDB FEATURE] The downloaded file is verified with OpenPGP/GPG key ID 721042C5. The public key block is included in the script.

The old file is kept if the downloaded file is identical (ignoring the differences in Id string) otherwise it is moved to drivedb.h.old.  

OPTIONS

-s SMARTCTL
Use the smartctl(8) executable at path SMARTCTL for drive database syntax check. The form '-s -' disables the syntax check. The default is /usr/sbin/smartctl.
-t TOOL
Use TOOL for download. TOOL is one of: curl wget lynx svn. The default is the first one found in PATH.
-u LOCATION
Use URL of LOCATION for download. LOCATION is one of:
github (GitHub mirror of SVN repository),
sf (Sourceforge code browser),
svn (SVN repository),
svni (SVN repository via HTTP instead of HTTPS),
trac (Trac code browser).
The default is svn.
--trunk
Download from SVN trunk. This requires '--no-verify' unless the trunk version is still identical to branches/RELEASE_7_0_DRIVEDB.
--cacert FILE
Use CA certificates from FILE to verify the peer.
--capath DIR
Use CA certificate files from DIR to verify the peer.
--insecure
Don't abort download if certificate verification fails. This option is also required if a HTTP URL is selected with '-u' option.
--no-verify
Don't verify signature with GnuPG.
--export-key
Print the OpenPGP/GPG public key block.
--dryrun
Print download commands only.
-v
Verbose output.
