PCMCIAD(8)              OpenBSD System Manager's Manual             PCMCIAD(8)

     pcmciad - PC-CARD slot monitor daemon

     pcmciad [-d] [-q] [-c conf-file]

     pcmciad monitors a set of PCMCIA slots for card change events, and acts
     on those events.  It reads the configuration file specified with the -c
     flag, or, if no file is specified, the default configuration file

     Each line of the configuration file contains a list of PCMCIA slot device
     files to monitor and a command name for that slot.  Whenever a card event
     occurs on a monitored slot, pcmciad attempts to configure (upon inser-
     tion) or unconfigure (upon removal) the card.  If the action succeeds,
     the slot's command is run, passed the slot number, event type (insert or
     delete), and device type name.

     pcmciad announces card insertion/configuration/removal events on the
     speaker (using the /dev/speaker device).  A short high note announces a
     card insertion.  A low note followed by a high note indicates successful
     card configuration; a single low note indicates an unknown card or con-
     figuration failure.  A high note followed by a low note indicates a card

     When the -q flag is specified, the card insertion/removal events are not
     announced on the speaker.

     pcmcia_cntrl(8),  config_slot(8),  speaker(4).

     The pcmciad command appeared in OpenBSD 1.2.
