libhardware 0.5.0 - GPL generic library for hardware and kernel module detection

[english]

libhardware is a very small static library used in many utilities that
are part of the Antonio Gallo's (AGX) GNU/Linux distribution "Bad Penguin".
It provides functions to access information about the hardware of your system,
to detect it and to handle kernel module automatically.

libhardware is able to:
- enumerate all the PCI devices;
- enumerate all the EIDE disks and cdroms;
- enumerate all the SCSI disks and cdroms;
- enumerate all the EIDE/SCSI disk partitions;
- checking if a detected device is supported from the Linux kernel
  using a custom PCI database
- provide the "scanmodule" utility;

libhardware e' una piccola libreria statica usata all'interno della distribuzione
GNU/Linux "Bad Penguin" di Antonio Gallo (AGX).
Essa fornisce una serie di funzioni per accedere alle informazioni riguardanti
l'hardware del proprio sistema e per individuare e gestire automaticamente i
moduli del kernel.

libhardware e' capace di:
- trovare tutti i dispositivi PCI;
- trovare tutti i dischi e cdrom di tipo EIDE e di tipo SCSI;
- trovare le informazioni su tutte le partizioni disponibili sui dischi;
- controllare se un dispositivo hardware e' supportato o meno dal kernel di
  Linux usando un proprio database di periferiche PCI;
- include l'utility "scanmodule";

Please, contribute installing libhardware on your system and checking that
all your devices are correctly identified. Libhardware has its own database
device that needs to be completed.

Cortesemente, contribuisci a questo progetto installando libhardware sul tuo
sistema e controllando che tutti i tuoi dispositivi vengano identificati
correttamente. Libhardware ha il proprio database di dispostivi che ha bisogno
di essere completato.
