The uio interface
uio provides access to a specific uio device. This interface is restricted because it provides privileged access to uio hardware.
The slot is intended to be implemented by a gadget snap and is not provided by the core system snap.
path(slot): path to uio device. e.g.
Requires snapd version 2.44+.
To use the uio device, the snap developer must add
plugs: [ uio ] to a snap’s snapcraft.yaml. The snap user can then access a specific disk partition with an interface connection.
snap interface uio to see which disk partitions are available on the system for snaps to use:
$ snap interface uio name: uio summary: allows access to specific uio device slots: - foo:uio1 - foo:uio2
Once connected, the consuming snap can use the device via the path specified by the connected slot.
This is a snap interface. See Interface management and Supported interfaces for further details on how interfaces are used.
