context

 

sysattr

filter for a sys attribute at the device to exclude from the list

 

value

optional value of the sys attribute

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_add_match_property ()

int
udev_enumerate_add_match_property (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate,
                                   const char *property,
                                   const char *value);

Match only devices with a certain property.

Parameters

context

 

property

filter for a property of the device to include in the list

 

value

value of the property

Parameters

udev_enumerate

context

 

tag

filter for a tag of the device to include in the list

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_add_match_parent ()

int
udev_enumerate_add_match_parent (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate,
                                 struct udev_device *parent);

Return the devices on the subtree of one given device. The parent itself is included in the list.

A reference for the device is held until the udev_enumerate context is cleaned up.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

context

 

parent

parent device where to start searching

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_add_match_is_initialized ()

int
udev_enumerate_add_match_is_initialized
                               (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate);

Match only devices which udev has set up already. This makes sure, that the device node permissions and context are properly set and that network devices are fully renamed.

Usually, devices which are found in the kernel but not already handled by udev, have still pending events. Services should subscribe to monitor events and wait for these devices to become ready, instead of using uninitialized devices.

For now, this will not affect devices which do not have a device node and are not network interfaces.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

context

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_add_match_sysname ()

int
udev_enumerate_add_match_sysname (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate,
                                  const char *sysname);

Match only devices with a given /sys device name.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

context

 

sysname

filter for the name of the device to include in the list

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_add_syspath ()

int
udev_enumerate_add_syspath (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate,
                            const char *syspath);

Add a device to the list of devices, to retrieve it back sorted in dependency order.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

context

 

syspath

path of a device

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_scan_devices ()

int
udev_enumerate_scan_devices (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate);

Scan /sys for all devices which match the given filters. No matches will return all currently available devices.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

udev enumeration context

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_scan_subsystems ()

int
udev_enumerate_scan_subsystems (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate);

Scan /sys for all kernel subsystems, including buses, classes, drivers.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

udev enumeration context

 

Returns

0 on success, otherwise a negative error value.


udev_enumerate_get_list_entry ()

struct udev_list_entry *
udev_enumerate_get_list_entry (struct udev_enumerate *udev_enumerate);

Get the first entry of the sorted list of device paths.

Parameters

udev_enumerate

context

 

Returns

a udev_list_entry.

Types and Values

struct udev_enumerate

struct udev_enumerate;

Opaque object representing one device lookup/sort context.
