Xinf aliases hwdata

alias pcivideo:v00008086d00007121sv*sd*bc*sc*i* intel   # i810

pcivideo is a tag understood by kudzu to mean that this line describes
an X driver.  The lowercase letters (v, d, sv, sd, bc, sc, i) are the
various PCI ID fields: vendor, device, subvendor, subdevice, base class,
subclass, and ASIC revision.  Normally you only need to use the first
two.  Then the third word is the driver name you want for that chip.
Comments are optional but are greatly appreciated.

The * wildcards are like shell, not like regex.  Numeric values _must_
be in uppercase hexadecimal; don't try to specify nvidia hardware with
000010de or you will be sadly disappointed.  Multiple matches are
possible, last match wins, but it's best if you don't have to rely on
that accidental feature.


  • restorecon relabels files with type file_t (which means the file has no label)
  • mount -o context=system_u:object_r:tmp_t:s0 /dev/mapper/tmp /tmp - correct context for /tmp filesystem
