NAME
     dsbdriverd	-- A device driver loading daemon

SYNOPSIS
     dsbdriverd	[-flnu]	[-x driver, ...]

DESCRIPTION
     dsbdriverd	is a daemon that automatically tries to	find and load the
     suitable driver for your PCI and USB hardware. On startup dsbdriverd
     scans the PCI and US(B) bus for all connected devices and looks up	their
     driver in a database using	information provided by	the hardware. The same
     applies to	USB devices attached to	the system later at runtime.

     The options are as	follows:

     -f	     Run in foreground.

     -l	     List installed devices and	their corresponding driver.

     -n	     Just show what would be done, but do not load any drivers.

     -u	     Start dhclient(8) on Ethernet devices that	appeared after loading
	     the corresponding driver.

     -x	     Exclude every driver in the comma separated list from loading.
