NAME
       update-smart-drivedb - update smartmontools drive database

SYNOPSIS
       update-smart-drivedb [OPTIONS] [DESTFILE]

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

       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),  lynx(1),
       fetch(1)	[FreeBSD only],	or svn(1).

       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/local/sbin/smartctl.

       -t TOOL
	      Use TOOL for download.  TOOL is one of:  curl  wget  lynx	 fetch
	      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 HTTPS),
	      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.

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

       --dryrun
	      Print download commands only.

       -v     Verbose output.
