Kudzu (computer daemon)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Kudzu is a hardware probing program (written by Red Hat Linux) which relies on a library of hardware device information. When the computer boots, kudzu detects changes in the running system's hardware configuration, if any, and activates the newly detected hardware (or removal of hardware). kudzu only runs at boot time, and then exits. There is no performance penalty during normal operation. (Since Fedora release 9, kudzu is supplemented by HAL)
