NAME

setpci - configure PCI devices  

SYNOPSIS

setpci [options] devices operations...

 

DESCRIPTION

setpci is a utility for querying and configuring PCI devices.

All numbers are entered in hexadecimal notation.

Root privileges are necessary for almost all operations, excluding reads of the standard header of the configuration space on some operating systems. Please see lspci(8) for details on access rights.

 

OPTIONS

 

General options

-v
Tells setpci to be verbose and display detailed information about configuration space accesses.
-f
Tells setpci not to complain when there's nothing to do (when no devices are selected). This option is intended for use in widely-distributed configuration scripts where it's uncertain whether the device in question is present in the machine or not.
-D
`Demo mode' -- don't write anything to the configuration registers. It's useful to try setpci -vD to see what your complex sequence of setpci operations does before you actually execute it.
--version
Shows setpci version. This option should be used stand-alone.

 

PCI access options

The PCI utilities use the PCI library to talk to PCI devices (see pcilib(7) for details). You can use the following options to influence its behavior:

-A <method>
The library supports a variety of methods to access the PCI hardware. By default, it uses the first access method available, but you can use this option to override this decision. See -A help for a list of available methods and their descriptions.
-O <param>=<value>
The behavior of the library is controlled by several named parameters. This option allows to set the value of any of the parameters. Use -O help for a list of known parameters and their default values.
-H1
Use direct hardware access via Intel configuration mechanism 1. (This is a shorthand for -A intel-conf1.)
-H2
Use direct hardware access via Intel configuration mechanism 2. (This is a shorthand for -A intel-conf2.)
-G
Increase debug level of the library.

 

DEVICE SELECTION

Before each sequence of operations you need to select which devices you wish that operation to affect.

-s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]]
Show only devices in the specified domain (in case your machine has several host bridges, they can either share a common bus number space or each of them can address a PCI domain of its own; domains are numbered from 0 to ffff), bus (0 to ff), slot (0 to 1f) and function (0 to 7). Each component of the device address can be omitted or set to "*", both meaning "any value". All numbers are hexadecimal. E.g., "0:" means all devices on bus 0, "0" means all functions of device 0 on any bus, "0.3" selects third function of device 0 on all buses and ".4" shows only the fourth function of each device.
-d [<vendor>]:[<device>]
Select devices with specified vendor and device ID. Both ID's are given in hexadecimal and may be omitted or given as "*", both meaning "any value".

 

OPERATIONS

To query value of a configuration register, just name it (either by typing its name or by typing register address with optional .B, .W or .L suffix specifying register width as byte, word or longword).

To set a register, write reg=values where reg is the same as you would use to query the register and values is a comma-separated list of values you want to write starting with the given address. Each value to be written can be specified either as a hexadecimal number or as a bits:mask pair which causes the bits corresponding to binary ones in the mask to be changed to values of the corresponding bits in the bits

 

REGISTER NAMES

setpci knows the following configuration register names. See PCI bus specifications for their precise meaning or consult header.h or /usr/include/linux/pci.h for a couple of comments.
