Sysfs is a virtual file system in Linux kernel 2.5+ that provides a
tree of system devices. This package provides the program 'systool' to query
it: it can list devices by bus, class, and topology.
In addition this package ships a configuration file /etc/sysfs.conf which
allows one to conveniently set sysfs attributes at system bootup (in the init
script /etc/init.d/sysfsutils).
If you need sysfs queries in own programs, then you may want to use the
libsysfs library directly (package libsysfs-dev).

sysfsutils (2.1.0+repack-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Drop and tar-in-tar packaging and use upstream tarball as
orig.tar.gz now. This style is obsolete, we have much better tools now.
* Switch to dh compat 7.
* Add bzr-builddeb configuration (merge mode).
* debian/control: Add Vcs-Bzr:.
* Switch to 3.0 (quilt) source format, drop
* debian/control: Add missing ${misc:Depends}.
* debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.1.
* debian/sysfsutils.init: Start after cpufrequtils, to make sure that a
governor is selected and set up. Thanks Mario Holbe! (Closes: #590143)
2009-08-23 - Martin Pitt <>
sysfsutils (2.1.0-6) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/sysfsutils.init: Make sure the init.d script runs after udev,
module-init-tools and loadcpufreq, to avoid trying to set kernel
parameters for kernel modules not yet loaded. Thanks to Petter
Reinholdtsen! (Closes: #539755)
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3 (no changes necessary).
2008-09-06 - Martin Pitt <>
sysfsutils (2.1.0-5) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/rules: Fix dh_installinit call to not install stop symlinks. The
init script does not need to be called on stop. This also makes the
update-rc.d links consistent to the LSB header "Should-Stop" which insserv
complained about. (Closes: #497905)
* debian/libsysfs-dev.doc-base: Fix section name, thanks lintian.
* debian/control: Bump Standards-Version (no changes necessary).
2008-04-01 - Martin Pitt <>
sysfsutils (2.1.0-4) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/sysfsutils.init: Some attributes in sysfs need a terminating
newline, some don't, so try both. Thanks to Stefan Monnier for the patch!
(Closes: #459240, LP: #184783)
2007-12-30 - Martin Pitt <>
sysfsutils (2.1.0-3) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/sysfsutils.init: Fix Default-Stop LSB header to not run in any
level, since 'stop' does not do anything. (Closes: #458272, #427033)
* debian/sysfsutils.init: Use LSB output commands. (Closes: #457662)
* debian/sysfsutils.README.Debian: Fix script name. (Closes: #453312)
* Bump Standards-Version (no changes necessary).
* debian/control: Replace obsolete ${Source-Version} with ${binary:Version}.
* debian/rules: Drop pointless rpath from systool binary. Add chrpath build
