LSPNP(8)                    System Manager's Manual                   LSPNP(8)



NAME
       lspnp - list Plug and Play BIOS device nodes and resources

SYNOPSIS
       lspnp [-b] [-v[v]] [device ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This utility presents a formatted interpretation of the contents of the
       /proc/bus/pnp tree.  Its default output is a  list  of  Plug  and  Play
       device  node  numbers,  product identifiers, and descriptions.  Verbose
       output (-v) includes resource allocations  (IO  ports,  memory,  inter-
       rupts,  and  DMA  channels) for each device.  Very verbose output (-vv)
       includes lists of possible resources, various configuration flags,  and
       product identifiers for compatible devices.

       The output can be limited to one or more specific device nodes by spec-
       ifying their two-digit hex  node  numbers  on  the  command  line.   By
       default,  current  (dynamic)  device  configuration information is dis-
       played; with the -b option, the boot (static) configuration is shown.

OPTIONS
       -b     Boot mode: read device resource information that will be used at
              next boot (as opposed to current resource info).

       -v     Selects more verbose output.  Can be used more than once.

FILES
       /usr/share/misc/pnp.ids     A  database  of  known Plug and Play device
                                   ID's.

       /proc/bus/pnp/...           The kernel interface for Plug and Play BIOS
                                   device services.
