setsym(1M)							    setsym(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     setsym - set up a debug kernel for	symbolic debugging

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     setsym [-dev] filename

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     setsym reads in the symbol	table of the file filename and writes it back
     into an internal symbol table that	is part	of the filename	.data section.
     The input file is intended	to be a	debug kernel.  This internal symbol
     table is used by symmon(1M) for symbolic debugging	of the kernel.

     Normally, filename	is unix	or unix.install.  The -d flag Dump symbols
     from already processed file.  The -e flag includes	ELF symbols only
     (default is ELF & DWARF).	Additional error messages can be seen with the
     -v	flag.  The size	of the internal	symbol table is	configurable in	the
     file /var/sysgen/master.d/idbg.

     It	is best	to reconfigure the kernel on a system with the autoconfig(1M)

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     autoconfig(1M), lboot(1M),	symmon(1M).
