kreg(8)								       kreg(8)

       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
       NAME.list  file.	  Deletes  the entry for the specified layered product
       when you remove it from the system.  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  cre‐
       ates  the file if it does not exist.  The file enables system utilities
       or user supplied commands to locate the kernel parts of a layered prod‐
       uct, and it provides information about layered products.

       The  kernel  tools  use the /usr/sys/conf/.product.list file to build a
       layered 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  follow‐
       ing syntax: /usr/sys/conf/NAME.list

       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

       You can use the -c option to load or delete your layered product into a
       specific	 NAME.list  file  as  well as the file.	 This is useful if you
       want to load your layered product into a specific NAME.list file	 with‐
       out  requiring the user to either copy the entire 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 com‐
       mand  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)
