build a new UNIX system kernel
/etc/conf/cf.d/link_unix [ -y | -n ] [ -p ]
After installing a device driver, use link_unix
to build a new UNIX system kernel.
This script builds /etc/conf/cf.d/unix
using the current system configuration in /etc/conf.
With no options, link_unix executes the idbuild command
with no options.
idbuild rebuilds the kernel and, if successful,
sets a flag to instruct the system shutdown/reboot sequence
to replace the standard kernel in /stand/unix with the
Another flag is set to cause the environment (device special files,
/etc/inittab, etc.) to be reconfigured accordingly.
The following options are supported:
Adds the -B and -F flags to the idbuild command executed.
This forces a full, immediate kernel rebuild.
After idbuild completes successfully,
idmkinit -o /etc
idcpunix constructs the new kernel environment and copies the
new kernel into /stand.
idmkinit reconstructs /etc/inittab from the
Init(DSP) files in /etc/conf/init.d.
Adds the -n flag to the idbuild command executed,
which checks for configuration and symbol errors, but does not
build any modules.
Adds the -K flag to the idbuild command executed,
This preserves the temporary configuration files and object modules
created by idbuild.
The -y and -n options cannot be specified together.
link_unix is not part of any currently supported standard.
