Yes, I can vaguely remember reading that, but I think that's only for newer kernel versions, so if you don't mind that then drop it. I don't have any pcmcia cards, so can't test for you.
k, here it is for your testings -
http://user-contributions.org/projects/ … rc1.tar.gz
please report any problems with the new engine...
+ recoded all detection methods
+ removed pci/usbutils dependencies and parsing /proc/bus instead
+ removed pcmcia scanner (pcmcia devices listed under /proc/bus/pci)
+ added subvendorid/subdeviceid for pci devices
+ fixed colors for light-backround terminals
fixed ugly usb module name bug. get 2.0-rc2 here :
it fails to detect which module that is needed for my firewire hardware (Texas Instruments|PCI 4510 iEEE-1394 controller )
otherwise all look good (well, my nvidia geforce 4200go is recognised and the module it wanna load is vesa..but then again, not everyone has nvidia drivers loaded )

Kernel 2.6.14-archck1 (selfcompiled)
Hello, I tested lshwd-2.0-r2 but it doesn't show any output
what I did was
tar -xzf lshwd-2.0-rc2.tar.gz
but than it doesn't output anything
the old lshwd (form pacman) works
Please tell me if you need more info or if I do something wrong
thanks, under root it works!
the old lshwd also works as a user, maybe it should show a error message when not root?
done. now users can browse devices as before. also, as before, only root is able to retrieve the usbfs module name if one isnt found in the usbtable.
lshwd 2.0-rc3 : http://user-contributions.org/projects/ … rc3.tar.gz
I love lshwd and hwd, it's so much faster as hotplug
Would it be possible to detect the parallel-port and printer? And I noticed it detects my Scanner and assigns the modul "scanner" which does not exist in kernel 2.6
hmm... intresting... i never thought about printer detection... i have no idea if/how this can be done, but i'll check it out.
regarding the "scanner" module - what is the correct module name for 2.6? this should be changed in the pcitable file. please submit the new module name (here or to Rasat which maintain the table files) so we can update it. tnx.
:idea: and now for some great news :
2.0-rc4 is nearly finished - i added sysfs support and it was easy enough tnx to the new lshwd structure. the usb gave me a bit of a headache but its all sorted now. im just waiting for some firewire devices to code the sysfs_firewire detection. currently both procfs & sysfs methods are supported in lshwd (switch to sysfs with -s parameter), and i might remove the procfs in the future, but not likely soon. another option is to use sysfs as default and move procfs as optional. still need todo some more debugging before final decision...

With kernel26 you do not need a scanner-modul. Sane runs with libusb. For the printer I need " lp" and "parport_pc".
As you can see some modules for the sb-live would not be loaded by lshwd.
Edit: I replaced htoplug with lshwd nd it loads the following modules:

Only lp ad parport_pc must be loaded by hand. It seems as if lshwd might be a great replacment for the horplug-deamon. It`s quite fast. :-)
tnx for the input. i will try looking into the parallel thingie once i'll have some free time.
since it will take me sometime to get firewire devices, im releasing 2.0-rc4 so ppl can start testing the new sysfs support (using "-s" parameter).
PS. using the new sysfs allows users to retireve attached module to usb device (only allowed for root under procfs). [/edit]
+ added sysfs support (EXPERIMENTAL)
+ fixed memory leak
+ fixed classid in usb_procfs scanner
+ fixed some small bugs
Works for me. It finds "hub" instead of "unknown" for the USB hub with sysfs, which seems better (not that I used hub, but I would if I had a usb mouse). That was the only difference.
i dropped pcmcia detection since from what i've learned all pcmcia devices are listed under /proc/bus/pci <snip> i'd like to confirm this please
Hope I'm not too late with this, but my pcmcia Bluetooth card does not show up in /proc/bus/pci, AFAICS. I'm looking at the devices file in that directory, and my wifi card shows up fine, presumably because it's Cardbus, and handled as a pci device. The bluetooth card is "original" pcmcia, handled by cardmgr.
I'll try 2.0-rc4 to see what comes up.
OK, I've just tried rc4, and the output is exactly the same as the current release 1.1.3 - the pcmcia card is not detected.
Great work on this z4ziggy ! I'm still newby, but its proven as a great help in getting a few things running right .
Writing stories for a machine.
the usb module (hub) is shown on procfs too, but only with root since it uses ioctl to retrieve it. on sysfs its in a file, so any user can retrieve it.
regarding the pcmcia - ok... so some devices just have to make problems, do they? i'll recode the pcmcia and add it, see if u get the pcmcia device listed. please wait for 2.0-rc5.
I ran both as root, and only with -s it found 'hub'.
strange. it should have displayed the attached module name on both occasions.
regarding the pcmcia - ive added back the pcmcia procfs detection, and will release it with rc5 once the firewire will be finished too. then what is left is the pcmcia sysfs scanner...
Would it be possible to detect the parallel-port and printer? And I noticed it detects my Scanner and assigns the modul "scanner" which does not exist in kernel 2.6
Among the general hardwares, detecting parallel-port devices is still missing. In hwd-4.6 I tried reading the kernel message but couldn't find an unique criteria, so it was removed in 4.7. Morover, usb devices are taking over parallel-port and there is little feedback to work with.
I'm playing with gentoo currently.. and he has lshw and similar tools. I've got:

Seems to work well.
For my information, does ver. 2.0 still uses the pci-, usb- and pcmciatable? If it does, in what directory will the tables be located? Currently in 1.x they are in /usr/share/hwdata
