Description Torsten Krah 2008-03-24 14:14:10 UTC
Starting xfce4-sensors applet build with hddtemp support does result in the following error:

/usr/sbin/hddtemp -F -n -q /dev/sda
/usr/sbin/hddtemp: Ungültige Option -- F

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the sensors applet, built with hddtemp support.
2. Watch the error.

Actual Results:  
It works, however no support for monitoring hddtemp sensors.

Expected Results:  
Support monitoring disk sensors should work, -F option is unknown to hddtemp.
