SYNOPSIS

update-smart-drivedb [-v] [DESTFILE]

DESCRIPTION

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

It tries to download first from the current branch and then from trunk. The tools used for downloading are either curl(1), wget(1) or lynx(1). On FreeBSD, fetch(1) is used as a fallback.

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

-v verbose output

EXAMPLES

# update-smart-drivedb
/usr/local/share/smartmontools/drivedb.h updated from branches/RELEASE_6_4_DRIVEDB

EXIT STATUS

The exit status is 0 if the database has been successfully updated. If an error occurs the exit status is 1.
