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.
