SYNOPSIS

edd_id [--export] blockdevice

DESCRIPTION

edd_id is normally called from a udev rule, to provide udev with the edd id for a BIOS disk drive. Udev can use this information to create symlinks in /dev/disk/by-id and /dev/disk/by-label to the real device node.

USAGE

edd_id opens the blockdevice node specified at the commandline and prints the information chosen by the options.

OPTIONS

The following commandline switches are supported to specify what edd_id should print:
