drvconfig - apply permission and ownership changes to devices
drvconfig [-bn] [-a alias_name] [-c class_name]
[-i drivername] [-m major_num] [-r root_dir]
devfsadm(8) 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(8))
and the system has been rebooted.
The following options are supported:
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
Add a new major number to name binding into the kernel's
tables. This option is not normally used
directly, but is used by other utilities such as add_drv(8)
. Use of the
option requires that -i
be used also. No
entries are created.
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
Only configure the devices for the named driver. The
following options are used by the implementation of add_drv(8)
, and may not be supported in future versions of
Specify the major number major_num for this driver
to add to the kernel's name_to_major binding tables.
Do not try to load and attach any drivers, or if the
-i option is given, do not try to attach the driver named
Perform operations under root_dir, rather than
directly under root.
