Please find attached the (patch for) first version of the updated
sensors-detect. This patch adds support for looking up sensors
configurations while using DMI information. It applies to the 3.0.0 branch
Information about the patch:
* Adds command line parameters
(--automatic, --manual, --version, --verbose, --help, --update)
* Looks up DMI information and tries to match this with a config file in
* Ability to update /usr/share/lmsensors/motherboards with database (Note:
This database is currently a DUMMY and does not contain any usuable
information suitable for anything besides testing).
* Proccesses the config file if found.
It seems like it's already near to a complete working version. Every comment
will be appriciated.
If you want to find a checklist with the implemented functions, please
Note 1: The script currentently does not yet escapes backslashes for
filenames, this will be added soon.
Note 2: To make the patch more readable, there are no spaces added to nearly
every line inside the mainfunction of sensors-detect. Therefor the patched
verion of sensors-detect itself might be hard to read. A patch with the
added spaces (etc) will be submitted next week or so.
Note 3: The ability to only download configurations suitable for the current
architecture will be added if time permits.
