mkconf - generate configuration tables
Mkconf examines a machine configuration table on its standard input.
Its output is a pair of files l.s and c.c. The first is an assembler
program that represents the interrupt vectors located in low memory
addresses; the second contains initialized block and character device
Input to mkconf is a sequence of lines. The following describe devices
on the machine:
The devices marked with * may be preceded by a number telling how many
are to be included. The console typewrite is automatically included;
don't count it as part of the KL or DL specification. Count DN's in
units of 4 (1 system unit).
The following lines are also accepted.
root dev minor
The specified block device (e.g. hp) is used for the root. minor
is a decimal number giving the minor device. This line must
appear exactly once.
swap dev minor
The specified block device is used for swapping. If not given the
root is used.
pipe dev minor
The specified block device is used to store pipes. If not given
the root is used.
Sets the origin (block number) and size of the area used for swap-
ping. By default, the not very useful numbers 4000 and 872.
pack Include the packet driver. By default it is left out.
mpx Include the multiplexor driver. By default it is left out.
l.s, c.c output files
`Setting up Unix', in Volume 2.
The set of devices it knows about, the set of drivers included, and the
set of devices on the machine are mutually incomparable. Some handwork
is certain to be necessary. Because of floating vectors that may have
been missed, It is mandatory to check the l.s file to make sure it cor-
responds with reality.
