NAME


mkdevmaps - make device_maps entries

SYNOPSIS


/usr/sbin/mkdevmaps


DESCRIPTION


The mkdevmaps command writes to standard out a set of device_maps(4)
entries describing the system's frame buffer, audio, and removable media
devices.


The mkdevmaps command is used by the init.d(4) scripts to create or
update the /etc/security/device_maps file.


Entries are generated based on the device special files found in /dev.
For the different categories of devices, the mkdevmaps command checks for
the following files under /dev:

audio /dev/audio, /dev/audioctl, /dev/sound/...
tape /dev/rst*, /dev/nrst*, /dev/rmt/...
floppy /dev/diskette, /dev/fd*, /dev/rdiskette, /dev/rfd*
removable disk /dev/dsk/c0t?d0s?, /dev/rdsk/c0t?d0s?
frame buffer /dev/fb
