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  /var/lib/smartmontools/drivedb/drivedb.h
       or  DESTFILE  from  branches/RELEASE_6_5_DRIVEDB  of  smartmontools SVN
       repository.

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

       The  downloaded file is verified with OpenPGP/GPG key ID DFD22559.  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 data-
              base 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_6_5_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.
