Description Christoph Lameter 2002-07-18 22:13:58 UTC
Set up an ebuild for the discover tool in debian. This is kind of neat because it is easy to integrate with other tools. Two ebuilds are attached:
discover-data contains the pci ids pnp ids and usb ids for devices
discover contains the real software.

I did not look at this yet, but one problem I can for see, is that the rc-script
(/etc/init.d/discover) will have to be updated for Gentoo.
