 NAME
      create_sysfile - create a kernel system file

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lbin/sysadm/create_sysfile [outfile]

 DESCRIPTION
      The create_sysfile command creates a kernel generation description
      file (system file) which can be used as input to the command config.
      The system file is built according to the drivers required by the
      current system hardware.	This command is intended for use during the
      install process when the system does not have a system file.

      The create_sysfile command first chooses a template file based on the
      CPU type of the machine, then it scans the system hardware and
      includes all drivers it can identify to run the existing hardware.  If
      outfile is specified, the resulting system file is sent to outfile.
      If outfile is not specified, the output is placed in the file
      /stand/system.

 RETURN VALUE
      The create_sysfile command returns zero upon normal completion or 1 if
      an error occurred.

 DIAGNOSTICS
      Errors are sent to stderr.  Most of the diagnostic messages from
      create_sysfile are self-explanatory.  Errors cause create_sysfile to
      halt immediately.
