question about lspci -v doesn't show for some devices its drivers.


Hello everybody, first of all, i am spanish so, sorry for my english.

My question is, that in some devices, when i do lspci -v, doesn't show the kernel drivers. An example:

$ lspci -v

For device 00:01.0 doesn't show the kernel driver and the same for 00:02.0, 00:02.1, while for the rest the comand show its driver.

Searching in google i found that somebody has shpchp driver for device 00:01.0. Why does this information isn't showed to me?

All this is because i want to compile the kernel and i need to know the drivers.

Thanks in advance.

Those parts are not really what lspci is for. Lspci does show them but they are part of the motherboard and not an add on components of the pci buss.

lshw, lspci -vvv may lead you to some answers. I suspect it is how the motherboard works with linux and they would be part of a hardware chipset driver. No one just adds to the motherboard like one adds to a pci buss. So there is no need to add in and out from the system as such.
