NAME
hald - daemon that supports hardware abstraction layer
SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/hal/hald [--daemon={yes | no}]] [--help] [--use-syslog] [--verbose={yes | no}] [--version]
DESCRIPTION
The hald daemon supports the recognition of hardware changes for devices that conform to the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) specifica- tion. The enabling and disabling of hald can be performed through the service management facility (SMF) (see smf(5)). hald is managed using the fault management resource identifier (FMRI) svc:/system/hal. Options can be specified as SMF properties. See EXAMPLES.
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: --daemon Run as a daemon. --help Display usage information and exit. --use-syslog Display debug messages to syslog instead of stderr. Use this option to record debug messages if HAL runs as daemon. --verbose Display debug information. --version Display version information and exit.
EXAMPLES
Example 1 Specifying a Property The following svccfg(1M) command specifies the --verbose option. example# svccfg svc:> select hal svc:/system/hal> listprop hal/* hal/verbose boolean false hal/use_syslog boolean false svc:/system/hal> setprop hal/verbose=true svc:/system/hal> exit
