SUMMARY: Who Needs efdaemon?

From: Crist Clark <>

Casper Dik was kind enough to elaborate as to what the manpage for efdaemon(1M)
means by "devices with FCode." It typically means machines with hot swappable
PCI cards and system boards. And the daemon is only needed if you actually will
be doing hot swapping.

Original question:
> Can someone point me to some Sun documentation that indicates what
> hardware/software (if any) actually requires efdaemon and or even the various
> FCode packages? Or is this purely stuff for developers and not something
> needed on a server or workstation?
> Where as I am in the "If I don't know what it is, I don't need it" camp,
> I need to counter the some people with the ol' "if I don't know what it is,
> install it, 'cause I might need it later" mentality. I need to justify
> removing things rather than having to justify their presence.
