ACPI_WMI(4)            FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual            ACPI_WMI(4)

NAME
     acpi_wmi - ACPI to WMI mapping driver

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device acpi_wmi

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           acpi_wmi_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The acpi_wmi driver provides an interface for vendor specific WMI
     implementations (e.g. HP and Acer laptops).  It creates /dev/wmistat%d,
     which can be read to get information about GUIDs found in the system.

FILES
     /dev/wmistat%d  WMI status device.

EXAMPLES
     # cat /dev/wmistat0
