DEVPUBD(8)              NetBSD System Manager's Manual              DEVPUBD(8)

NAME
     devpubd -- device publish daemon for automatic device node creation

SYNOPSIS
     devpubd [-f]

DESCRIPTION
     devpubd listens on drvctl(4) for new devices and creates their device
     nodes using MAKEDEV(8) if they are missing.

     When -f is specified, devpubd does not go into the background.

     devpubd runs /libexec/devpubd-run-hooks.  This script runs each script
     found in /libexec/devpubd-hooks in a lexical order with two arguments:
     device-attach or device-detach and the device file name.  The default
     installation supplies the 01-makedev script for creating a device node
     and the 02-wedgenames script for creating symlinks to wedge devices under
     /dev/wedges.  Additional scripts may be added for other dynamic device
     actions.
