The GUI-based device driver utility, ddu, provides information about devices on a system running the Oracle Solaris operating system. ddu enables a user to connect to the Image Packaging System (IPS) and search device drivers for the devices that do not have drivers attached to them. By doing this, ddu gives the user an opportunity to install missing drivers.
ddu is a GUI, with an easy-to-use interface. It has a text-based counterpart, ddu-text(1M), which is described in its own man page.
The following options is supported:
ddu runs silently. If it finds devices that are missing drivers a notification is posted. Clicking on the notification displays the DDU GUI.
The following command launches the ddu GUI.
