HALD(1M) Maintenance Commands HALD(1M)


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) specification.


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
