A format option for discover2 would be most welcome. Is there any
hope of such option appearing anytime soon?
If I understand you correctly, I can change the output from discover1
to not output vendor and card info, but instead only output the name
of the device like this (Changing '%V\t%M' to '%V %M'):
/sbin/discover --format="%m\t%V %M\n" \
--disable-all --enable=pci,ide,scsi,pcmcia scsi cdrom
This output seems easier to get from discover2. Using ideas from
xfree86, I get the following code:
dver=2.4 # Kernel version
dflags="-t -d all -e ata -e pci -e pcmcia -e scsi display"
discover --type-summary $dflags > $VENDOR_MODEL_FILE
discover --data-path=$dpath --data-version=$dver $dflags > $DRIVER_FILE
paste $VENDOR_MODEL_FILE $DRIVER_FILE
rm -f $VENDOR_MODEL_FILE $DRIVER_FILE
I believe I lost the 'scsi' and 'cdrom' options in the transformation,
but I am not sure if it is important to have it, if the default of
discover2 is to display all devices.
I have no test setup for discover2, so I was unable to test this. Can
anyone verify that I am moving in the right direction?
