mhwd ? Manjaro Hardware Detection

mhwd --help
One base component is our hardware detection. It is a C++ library and app and is designed after a dynamic structure. Any kind of hardware, no matter if usb or pci, can be configured by mhwd. There is just a simple configuration file which tells mhwd what to do. This way we also support hybrid graphics cards out of the box. However there are currently only mhwd configs for nvidia optimus setups. But this gap will be filled soon. Just play with some of those commands to get a feeling about mhwd.
