pcilib - a library for accessing PCI devices
The PCI library (also known as pcilib and libpci) is a portable library for accessing PCI devices and their configuration space.
The library supports a variety of methods to access the configuration space on different operating systems. By default, the first matching
method in this list is used, but you can specify override the decision (see the -A switch of lspci).
The /sys filesystem on Linux 2.6 and newer. The standard header of the config space is available to all users, the rest only to
root. Supports extended configuration space, PCI domains, VPD (from Linux 2.6.26), physical slots (also since Linux 2.6.26) and
information on attached kernel drivers.
The /proc/bus/pci interface supported by Linux 2.1 and newer. The standard header of the config space is available to all users, the
rest only to root.
Direct hardware access via Intel configuration mechanism 1. Available on i386 and compatibles on Linux, Solaris/x86, GNU Hurd and
Windows. Requires root privileges.
Direct hardware access via Intel configuration mechanism 2. Available on i386 and compatibles on Linux, Solaris/x86, GNU Hurd and
Windows. Requires root privileges. Warning: This method is able to address only the first 16 devices on any bus and it seems to be
very unreliable in many cases.
The /dev/pci device on FreeBSD. Requires root privileges.
Access method used on AIX. Requires root privileges.
The /dev/pci0 device on NetBSD accessed using the local libpci library.
The /dev/pci device on OpenBSD. Requires root privileges.
dump Read the contents of configuration registers from a file specified in the dump.name parameter. The format corresponds to the output
of lspci -x.
The library is controlled by several parameters. They should have sensible default values, but in case you want to do something unusual (or
even something weird), you can override them (see the -O switch of lspci).
Parameters of specific access methods
Name of the bus dump file to read from.
Path to the FreeBSD PCI device.
Path to the NetBSD PCI device.
Path to the OpenBSD PCI device.
Path to the procfs bus tree.
Path to the sysfs device tree.
Parameters for resolving of ID's via DNS
DNS domain containing the ID database.
Name of the file used for caching of resolved ID's.
