kreg - Maintains the system file that registers kernel layered products
/sbin/kreg -d subset [-c NAME] | -l vendor subset path [-c NAME]
Causes the specified layered product to be loaded or deleted from the
NAME.list file for the given name in addition to the
/usr/sys/conf/.product.list file. Note that the NAME parameter is case
sensitive and must exactly match the NAME prefix for the desired
Deletes the entry for the specified layered product when you remove it
from the system.
-l vendor subset path
Loads the data that controls how to include the layered product in the
kernel build process.
The kreg command maintains the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list system file,
which registers static kernel layered products. The kreg command creates
the file if it does not exist. The file enables system utilities or user
supplied commands to locate the kernel parts of a layered product, and it
provides information about layered products.
The kernel tools use the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file to build a lay-
ered product into the kernel. You can use the file to register a static
kernel layered product that has been loaded into the system. The file also
can be used by the layered product's Software Control Program (SCP), which
is called by the setld command.
You copy the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file into the file that is used to
extend the kernel configuration files and that has the following syntax:
The NAME variable specifies the system name that also is used in the system
configuration file that has the following syntax:
The doconfig command also will copy the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file.
You can use the -c option to load or delete your layered product into a
specific NAME.list file as well as the .product.list file. This is useful
if you want to load your layered product into a specific NAME.list file
without requiring the user to either copy the entire .product.list file to
the NAME.list file or to manually edit the NAME.list file.
The kreg command must be invoked from the root (/) directory. The command
can be used only for subsets that are loaded by using the setld command.
Also, you must be superuser to use the kreg command.
Contains kernel layered product information.
Used to extend the kernel configuration files.
Commands: doconfig(8), setld(8)
