 NAME
      kmsystem - set, query configuration and loadable flags for a module

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/kmsystem [-S system_file]

      /usr/sbin/kmsystem [-c {Y|y|N|n}] [-l {Y|y|N|n}] [-q]
	   [-S system_file] module_name

 DESCRIPTION
      Without any option or with the -S option only, kmsystem prints the
      information on the $LOADABLE and $CONFIGURATION flags of all modules.
      The -q option may be used to print information about the specified
      module only.  The $CONFIGURATION flag for module_name is set using the
      -c option, and the $LOADABLE flag is set with the -l flag.  When
      module_name is specified on the command line, one or more of the -c,
      -l, or -q flags must also be specified.

    Options
      -c value	Set the configuration status of module_nameto value.  value
		must be Y or y to configure the module, or N or n to not
		configure it.

		If the system file for the module
		(/stand/system.d/module_name) exists but does not contain
		the $CONFIGURE flag, then an error message is printed.
		Otherwise, the flag is set to value.

		If the system file for the module does not exist, then the
		standard system file (see -S option) is searched.
		module_name is added or removed from that system file
		according to value.

      -l value	Set the $LOADABLE flag in the system file of module_name to
		value.	value must be Y or y to make the module loadable, or
		N or n to specify that it should be statically linked.	If
		the system file for the module does not exist, kmsystem
		exits with an error.  If the system file exists, but the
		$LOADABLE flag is not present in the file, then the module
		is a static module, and kmsystem exits with an error.

      -q	Print the loadable and configuration flag information for
		module_name.  If the loadable information does not apply,
		then a - is printed.

      -S system_file
		Specify the HP-UX system description file name.	 Users
		should specify the complete path to the file name;
		otherwise, kmsystem will search the current directory for
		the specified file.  The default HP-UX system description
		file if the -S option is not specified is /stand/system.

		This option is for backward compatibility.

 EXAMPLES
      To display the configuration and loadable status of the stape module:

	   /usr/sbin/kmsystem -q stape

      To specify that the stape module should be statically linked:

	   /usr/sbin/kmsystem -l N stape

 NOTES
      System administrators are encouraged to use kmsystem and kmtune
      instead of editing system description files manually.  File format of
      system description files are subject to change, and kmsystem provides
      compatibility in the event of a format change.

 RETURN VALUE
      Upon successful completion, kmsystem returns with one a 0; otherwise
      it returns with a 1.

 DIAGNOSTICS
      Output for queries is sent to stdout.  Error messages are sent to
      stderr.  Messages from kmsystem are self explanatory.

 FILES
      /usr/conf/master.d/*   Master configuration tables for kernel and
			     kernel modules

      /stand/system	     Default HP-UX system description file

      /stand/system.d/*	     Kernel module system description files
