1.2. Module Specific Scope

This is the Itanium™ architecture specific part of the Desktop module of the Linux Standard Base (LSB). This part supplements the common part of the LSB Desktop module with those interfaces that differ between architectures.

This part should be used in conjunction with the common part of LSB Desktop. Whenever a section of the common part is supplemented by architecture-specific information, the common part includes a reference to the architecture-specific part. This part may also contain additional information that is not referenced in the common part.

Interfaces described in this part of LSB Desktop are mandatory except where explicitly listed otherwise. Interfaces described in the LSB Desktop module supplement those described in the LSB Core module. They do not depend on other LSB modules.
