kreg - Maintains the system file that registers kernel
/sbin/kreg -d subset [-c NAME] | -l vendor subset path [-c
Causes the specified layered product to be loaded or
deleted from the NAME.list file for the given name in
addition to the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file. Note
that the NAME parameter is case sensitive and must exactly
match the NAME prefix for the desired NAME.list file.
Deletes the entry for the specified layered product when
you remove it from the system. Loads the data that controls
how to include the layered product in the kernel
The kreg command maintains the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list
system file, which registers static kernel layered products.
The kreg command creates the file if it does not
exist. The file enables system utilities or user supplied
commands to locate the kernel parts of a layered product,
and it provides information about layered products.
The kernel tools use the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file
to build a layered product into the kernel. You can use
the file to register a static kernel layered product that
has been loaded into the system. The file also can be
used by the layered product's Software Control Program
(SCP), which is called by the setld command.
You copy the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file into the
file that is used to extend the kernel configuration files
and that has the following syntax: /usr/sys/conf/NAME.list
The NAME variable specifies the system name that also is
used in the system configuration file that has the following
The doconfig command also will copy the
You can use the -c option to load or delete your layered
product into a specific NAME.list file as well as the
file. This is useful if you want to load your layered
product into a specific NAME.list file without requiring
the user to either copy the entire file to the NAME.list
file or to manually edit the NAME.list file.
The kreg command must be invoked from the root (/) directory.
The command can be used only for subsets that are
loaded by using the setld command. Also, you must be
superuser to use the kreg command.
Contains kernel layered product information. Used to
extend the kernel configuration files.
Commands: doconfig(8), setld(8)
