sensors-sys: Unsafe Rust bindings for libsensors

lm-sensors provides user-space support for the hardware monitoring drivers in Linux.

This crate is Linux-specific. Building it for non-Linux platforms, or for the Linux kernel, results in an empty crate.

Supported environment variables

This crate depends on some environment variables, and variants of those. For each environment variable (e.g., CC), the following are the accepted variants of it:

  • <var>_<target>, e.g., CC_aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu.
  • <var>_<target-with-underscores>, e.g., CC_aarch64_unknown_linux_gnu.
  • TARGET_<var>, e.g., TARGET_CC.
  • <var>, e.g., CC.

The following environment variables (and their variants) affect how this crate is built:

  • CC

Dynamic or static linking

This crate links to libsensors dynamically if possible, except when targeting platforms based on the musl C library.

This behavior can be changed either by setting the environment variable LMSENSORS_STATIC to 1, or by enabling the crate feature static. If both are defined, then the value of LMSENSORS_STATIC takes precedence.

Setting LMSENSORS_STATIC to 0 mandates dynamic linking.

Finding SELinux library and headers

By default, this crate finds SELinux headers and library based on the default target C compiler.

This behavior can be changed by:

  • Either defining the environment variable LMSENSORS_PATH to the path of a directory containing the sub-directories include and lib where the headers and library are installed.
  • Or by defining one or both of the environment variables LMSENSORS_INCLUDE_DIR and LMSENSORS_LIB_DIR to paths to the directories where headers and library are present. If LMSENSORS_PATH is also defined, then LMSENSORS_INCLUDE_DIR and LMSENSORS_LIB_DIR take precedence.

Depending on this crate

This crate provides the following variables to other crates that depend on it:

  • DEP_LMSENSORS_INCLUDE: Path of the directory where library C header files reside.
  • DEP_LMSENSORS_LIB: Path of the directory where the library binary resides.
