     435== Update the drive database ==
     436
     437Starting with smartmontools 5.40 the drive database file {{{drivedb.h}}} can be updated separately with the following command
     438{{{
     439# /usr/sbin/update-smart-drivedb
     440}}}
     441This command uses [http://curl.haxx.se/ curl], [http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/ wget] or [http://lynx.isc.org/ lynx] for download. A proxy server can be specified by the environment variable {{{http_proxy}}} (lower case only), see the man pages of the above commands.
     442
     443This does not work on Windows. Download the file {{{drivedb.h}}} from [http://smartmontools.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/smartmontools/trunk/smartmontools/drivedb.h?revision=HEAD SVN trunk] instead and copy it into the directory where the exe files are installed.
     444
     445Smartmontools releases 5.39 and 5.39.1 also support drive database update if the build was configured with {{{--enable-drivedb}}}.
     446The {{{drivedb.h}}} file from the SVN trunk is not compatible with these releases.
     447A compatible version of drivedb.h is maintained on branch [source:/branches/RELEASE_5_39_DRIVEDB RELEASE_5_39_DRIVEDB].
     448Download this version of {{{drivedb.h}}} from
     449[http://smartmontools.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/smartmontools/branches/RELEASE_5_39_DRIVEDB/smartmontools/drivedb.h?revision=HEAD here]
     450and copy it into the configured directory (typically {{{/usr/share/smartmontools}}} or {{{/usr/local/share/smartmontools}}}).
