       gvid_no_claim_dev  - PCI Vendor/Device ID that the gvid graphics driver
       will not claim

   Allowed values
   Recommended values
       Specific to the device you wish to prevent from claiming.

       This tunable specifies the PCI Vendor ID and/or Device ID of a graphics
       device that the HP graphics driver should not claim.

       The graphics driver was designed to be a general purpose driver for all
       PCI graphics cards.  As a result, the driver will attempt to claim  any
       PCI graphics display device found on the system.	 This can be a problem
       for graphics device developers who need their own  graphics  driver  to
       claim their own graphics device.

       The  value of will specify a PCI Vendor ID and/or Device ID of a graph‐
       ics card that the gvid graphics driver should not claim.	 It  is	 a  32
       bit number, with the upper 16 bits containing the PCI Vendor ID and the
       lower 16 bits containing the PCI Device ID.  Either the	Vendor	ID  or
       Device ID can use a wildcard value of

       For  example,  if  is  set to the value the driver will ignore graphics
       devices with a PCI Vendor ID of and a Device ID of If  is  set  to  the
       driver will not claim any graphics cards with a Vendor ID of regardless
       of the Device ID.

   Who Is Expected to Change This Tunable?
       Anyone who wishes the graphics driver to	 ignore	 a  specific  graphics
       device.	 This  will  typically	be  someone writing their own graphics
       driver for their own hardware.

       Installation of optional kernel software, from HP or other vendors, may
       cause  changes  to  tunable parameter values.  After installation, some
       tunable parameters may no longer be at the default or recommended  val‐
       ues.  For information about the effects of installation on tunable val‐
       ues, consult the documentation for the kernel software being installed.
