 create_sysfile(1M)                                       create_sysfile(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      create_sysfile - create a kernel system file

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/lbin/sysadm/create_sysfile [outfile]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The create_sysfile command creates a kernel configuration description
      file (system file) which can be used as input to the commands
      kconfig(1M) or mk_kernel(1M).  The system file that is generated is of
      type version 1 (see system(4)) and is built according to the drivers
      required by the current system hardware.  This command is intended for
      use during the install process when the system does not have a system

      The create_sysfile command uses a template file as a starting point
      and then it scans the system hardware and adds all drivers it can
      identify to run the existing hardware.  If outfile is specified, the
      resulting system file is sent to outfile.  If outfile is not
      specified, the output is placed in the file /stand/system.

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Upon completion, create_sysfile returns with one of the following exit

           0    Successful.

           1    One or more errors were reported.

 DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Errors are sent to stderr.  Most of the diagnostic messages from
      create_sysfile are self-explanatory.  Errors cause create_sysfile to
      halt immediately.
