NAME

       ide_media - udev callout to identify media of IDE device

SYNOPSIS

       ide_media [--export] devpath

DESCRIPTION

       ide_media  is  normally  called  from a udev rule to identify the media
       type of an IDE  device.   Udev  can  use  this  information  to  assign
       appropriate permissions to the device or load an appropriate module.

USAGE

       ide_media  takes  a  path under /sys, if not given it uses the value of
       the  DEVPATH  environment  variable  instead.   It  then   prints   the
       information chosen by the options.

OPTIONS

       The  following  command-line  switches  are  supported  to specify what
       ide_media should print:

       --export
              print media type as IDE_MEDIA environment variable for use  with
              an IMPORT{program} rule.
