getconfig - get configuration information for the XFree86 server
getconfig [option ...]
getconfig is a programmatic interface that is used by the XFree86 server to get configuration information about video hardware when operating without an XF86Config file. This implementation of getconfig is written in perl. It processes a prioritized and ordered list of rules supplied internally and from meta-configuration files. The rules are in the form of perl expressions. getconfig writes to stan- dard output the XF86Config-style configuration data speci- fied by the last highest priority rule that evaluates to true. Information about the format of the meta-configuration files can be found in the getconfig(5) manual page.
-I search-path Specify the search path to use for meta-config files. search-path is a comma-separated list of directories to search. Each directory in the search path is searched for files with a .cfg suffix. Each such file is opened and checked for a valid signa- ture string. Rules are read from files with a valid signature string and appended to the list of rules to evaluate. If no search path is specified, only the internally supplied configuration rules will be used. -D Enable debugging output. -V Print out the version information and exit. -X XFree86-version Specify the XFree86 version in numeric (integer) form. -b subsys-id Specify the PCI subsystem ID of the video device. -c class Specify the PCI class of the video device. -d device-id Specify the PCI device ID of the video device. -r revision XFree86 Version 4.5.0 1 getconfig(1) UNIX Programmer's Manual getconfig(1) Specify the PCI revision of the video device. -s subsysvendor-id Specify the PCI subsystem vendor ID of the video device. -v vendor-id Specify the PCI vendor ID of the video device. -S sbus-path Specify the SBUS path of the video device.
.cfg files located in the search path. The search path typ- ically specified by the XFree86 server is: /etc/X11 /usr/X11R6/etc/X11 <modulepath> /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/getconfig where <modulepath> is the XFree86 server's module search path.
