That's really good stuff. Now I know that smartd can be configured to
ignore the changes of some of the attributes, which I'd really need.
A couple notes on the lm_sensors part:
1* You do not mention SMBus at all. I think you should, as possibly
people will read about SMBus in their motherboard manual, and will be
interested to know that it is (almost) the same as I2C.
2* "Whenever you modify the /etc/sensors.conf file, you must run sensors
-s to apply the changes." This isn't exactly correct, most changes
will take effect immediately. Only changes made to "set" lines
requires "sensors -s".
3* About VRM, you could add that VRM is now automatically detected.
Pretty soon, setting the VRM through /etc/sensors.conf will not be even
Great work :)
