LOADFOSSIL(8)                                       LOADFOSSIL(8)

     NAME
          loadfossil - populate a fossil filesystem

     SYNOPSIS
          loadfossil fossil root proto fossil.conf

     DESCRIPTION
          Loadfossil formats the partition (or file) fossil as a
          fossil(4) file system, populates it with files from root
          using the mkfs(8) prototype file proto and installs the con-
          figuration in fossil.conf.

          Simply declaring `fsys main config' in fossil.conf takes the
          device name from `fossil -f' and avoids wiring it into the
          configuration.

     EXAMPLES
          Create a standalone fossil root filesystem for a laptop from
          the local Plan 9 installation.

               sc=/sys/lib/sysconfig
               loadfossil /dev/sdC0/fossil /n/boot $sc/proto/stand-usb \
                    $sc/usb/fossil.conf

     FILES
          /srv/fossil
          /srv/fossil.open
          /srv/fscons
          /srv/fscons.open  files created while executing

     SOURCE

     BUGS
          Due to name clashes in /srv, should be run only on machines
          with no running fossil instance named `fossil'.
