3:01 PM - Quick and Dirty GEOM print program

While debugging a GEOM related problem with a program, I ended up needing a way to print out data from what libgeom gets from the kernel.  Below is a quick and dirty dump program for just such a situation.  Compile it with 

gcc -std=c99 -lgeom prog.c -o prog 


#include <stdio.h>

#include <string.h>

#include <stdlib.h>

#include <libgeom.h>

#include <stdint.h>


void read_geom_mesh(struct gmesh *mesh);



read_geom_mesh(struct gmesh *mesh)


        struct gclass *classp;

        struct ggeom *gp;

struct gprovider *provider;



         * Build the device table. First add all disks (and CDs).



        LIST_FOREACH(classp, &mesh->lg_class, lg_class) {



LIST_FOREACH(gp, &classp->lg_geom, lg_geom) {

printf(" %ud %s ", gp->lg_id, gp->lg_name);

LIST_FOREACH(provider, &gp->lg_provider, lg_provider) {

printf(" provider: %u %s %s ", provider->lg_id, provider->lg_name, provider->lg_mode);







int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

int error;

        struct gmesh mesh;

error = geom_gettree(&mesh);


if (error == 0)



return 0;
