NAME

       discover.conf — configuration file format for discover(1)

Description

       Discover  looks  for  configuration files in a configuration directory,
       containing a number of files.   These  define  the  system  buses  that
       should  be  scanned by default, those that should never be scanned, and
       the URLs for hardware data files beyond the local  copy  provided  with
       the software.

       The  file  format  is  XML;  the  DTD     is provided with the Discover
       software, and can be used for informational or validation purposes.

Examples

       Establishing default buses to scan

       <?xml version="1.0"?>

       <!DOCTYPE conffile SYSTEM "conffile.dtd">

       <conffile>
       <busscan scan="default">
       <bus name="ata"/>
       <bus name="pci"/>
       <bus name="pcmcia"/>
       <bus name="scsi"/>
       <bus name="usb"/>
       </busscan>
       </conffile>

       A more complex example

       <?xml version="1.0"?>

       <!DOCTYPE conffile SYSTEM "conffile.dtd">

       <conffile>
       <busscan scan="default">
       <bus name="ata"/>
       <bus name="pci"/>
       <bus name="pcmcia"/>
       <bus name="usb"/>
       </busscan>
       <!-- My ancient SCSI card locks up when probed -->
       <busscan scan="never">
       <bus name="scsi"/>
       </busscan>
       <data-sources>
       <data-source url="http://www.example.com/discover/xfree86.xml"
       label="Updated XFree86 hardware information">
       </data-sources>
       </conffile>

Authors

       Josh Bressers, John R. Daily, and G.  Branden  Robinson  developed  the
       current implementation of Discover for Progeny Linux Systems.

       The  Linux implementation of the system-dependent interfaces is derived
       from detect, by MandrakeSoft SA.
