       [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 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), lynx(1), or

       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.

       -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:
              sf (Sourceforge code browser via HTTP),
              svn (SVN repository via HTTPS),
              svni (SVN repository via HTTP),
              trac (Trac code browser via HTTPS).
              The default is svn.

       --cacert FILE
              Use CA certificates from FILE to verify the peer.

       --capath DIR
              Use CA certificate files from DIR to verify the peer.

              Don't  abort  download  if certificate verification fails.  This
              option is also required if a HTTP  URL  is  selected  with  '-u'

              Print download commands only.

       -v     Verbose output.

       # update-smart-drivedb

              current drive database.

              previous drive database.

              new drive database if rejected due to syntax errors.
