NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     chkconfig - configuration state checker

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     chkconfig [ -s ]
     chkconfig flag
     chkconfig [ -f ] flag [ on	| off ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     chkconfig with no arguments or with the -s	option prints the state	(on or
     off) of every configuration flag found in the directory /var/config.  The
     flags normally are	shown sorted by	name; with the -s option they are
     shown sorted by state.

     A flag is considered on if	its file contains the string ``on'' and	off

     If	flag is	specified as the sole argument,	chkconfig exits	with status 0
     if	flag is	on and with status 1 if	flag is	off or nonexistent.  The exit
     status can	be used	by shell scripts to test the state of a	flag.  Here is
     an	example	using sh(1) syntax:

	  if /sbin/chkconfig verbose; then
	       echo "Verbose is	on"
	       echo "Verbose is	off"

     The optional third	argument allows	the specified flag to be set.  The
     flag file must exist in order to change its state.	 Use the -f
     (``force'') option	to create the file if necessary.

     These flags are used for determining the configuration status of the
     various available subsystems and daemons during system startup and	during
     system operation.

     A daemon or subsystem is enabled if its configuration flag	in the
     /var/config directory is in the on	state.	If the flag file is missing,
     the flag is considered off.  The following	is a list of available flags
     and the associated	action if the flag is on.  Depending upon your
     configuration, they may not all be	available on your system.

     4DDN	     Initialize	4DDN (DECnet connectivity) software.

     acct	     Start process accounting.

     auto_ipaddress  Enable dynamic host configuration protocol	(DHCP) as a

     automount	     Start the NFS automounter daemon.

     desktop	     If	off, fewer of the IRIX Interactive Desktop(TM) user
		     interface features	are enabled, and typically a different
		     toolchest menu is used.  It is identical to creating the
		     file $HOME/.disableDesktop	except that it applies to all
		     accounts.	The specific effect is that the	desktop
		     version of	Xsession (/usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession.dt)	is not
		     run upon login, and therefore programs started from that
		     file are not run or are run with different	options.

     fontserver	     Start the X11R6 font server daemon.  See xfs(1).

     gated	     Start the Cornell routing daemon instead of the BSD

     hypernet	     Initialize	HyperNET controller and	routes.

     jserver	     Start Japanese convert engine if the optional product
		     Japanese Language Module is installed.

     named	     Start Internet domain name	server.

     network	     Allow incoming and	outgoing network traffic.  This	flag
		     can be set	off if you need	to isolate the machine from
		     the network without removing cables.

     nfs	     Start the NFS daemons nfsd	and biod.  Mount all NFS

     noiconlogin     Do	not show user icons on the login screen.

     rwhod	     Start the 4.3BSD rwho daemon.

     sar	     Start the system activity reporter.

     savecore	     Enable the	saving of kernel crash images.	Some

		     The recommended means of enabling and disabling the
		     window system are the commands startgfx(1G) and
