DRVCONFIG(1M) Maintenance Commands DRVCONFIG(1M)


NAME


drvconfig - apply permission and ownership changes to devices

SYNOPSIS


drvconfig [-bn] [-a alias_name] [-c class_name]
[-i drivername] [-m major_num] [-r root_dir]


DESCRIPTION


devfsadm(1M) is now the preferred command and should be used instead of
drvconfig.


The default operation of drvconfig is to apply permission and ownership
changes to devices. Normally, this command is run automatically after a
new driver has been installed (with add_drv(1M)) and the system has been
rebooted.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-aalias_name
Add the name alias_name to the list of aliases that this
driver is known by. This option, if used, must be used
with the -m major_num, the -b and the -i drivername
options.


-b
Add a new major number to name binding into the kernel's
internal name_to_major tables. This option is not
normally used directly, but is used by other utilities
such as add_drv(1M). Use of the -b option requires that
-i and -m be used also. No /devices entries are created.


-cclass_name
The driver being added to the system exports the class
class_name. This option is not normally used directly,
but is used by other utilities. It is only effective when
used with the -b option.


-idrivername
Only configure the devices for the named driver. The
following options are used by the implementation of
add_drv(1M) and rem_drv(1M), and may not be supported in
future versions of Solaris:


-mmajor_num
Specify the major number major_num for this driver to add
to the kernel's name_to_major binding tables.


-n
Do not try to load and attach any drivers, or if the -i
option is given, do not try to attach the driver named
drivername.


-rroot_dir
Perform operations under root_dir, rather than directly
under root.


EXIT STATUS


0
Successful completion.


non-zero
An error occurred.
