Topic: How to use KTD Patterns
I have been doing a bit of experimentation with the KTD Patterns option in the BASE and thought that I would give a few pointers as to what I have found to work for me.
This is the patterns setting that I am using:
1394\ - Firewire
DOT4PRT\ - USB Printers.
FlashMedia\ - I found one driver that uses this. Most media readers use either PCMCIA or PCI.
HID\ - PS/2 port based devices. Mostly keyboards and mice.
LPTENUM\ - LPT port based devices.
Monitor\ - CRTs and LCDs.
PCMCIA\ - As far as I can tell this designation applies to CardBus also. I don't know how ExpressCard devices will enumerate since ExpressCard is based on PCI-E.
SERENUM\ - Serial port devices.
USB\ - Self explanatory.
USBPRINT\ - Also for USB printers.[/list]
I should also explain that the trailing backslash is included to prevent false positives. Specifically I found when I had "1394" without the trailing backslash, that there was a PCI based NIC driver that was flagged because the vendor ID was VEN_1394. The hardware root always has a backslash, so Bashrat pointed out to me that this would be a good way to eliminate that problem.
