Description Petr Šplíchal 2008-12-03 11:03:56 EST
Description of problem:

When detecting sensors with standard input redirected from /dev/null there is an error message displayed at the end of detection. This does not have any impact on function but is a bit confusing. As autodetecting (with common defaults) available sensors can be expected in scripts, I think this should be fixed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
sensors-detect </dev/null
Actual results:
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/sbin/sensors-detect line 5645.
Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): 

Expected results:
No errors displayed.
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2008-12-19 10:24:23 EST
Looked into it, should be easily fixable, so proposing for RHEL-5.4.

Thanks & regards, Phil
