CONFIG(8)                                               CONFIG(8)

     NAME
          config - configure a Unix kernel

     SYNOPSIS
          /etc/config [ machine ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Config generates files used to build a Unix kernel for the
          named machine. The working directory should be /usr/sys/conf
          or /usr/sys/machine; if the latter, machine may be omitted
          from the command.

          A machine description is expected in machine/conf; a make-
          file, a number of header files, and some C and assembler
          programs are generated from the description.

          The usual way to configure a new system is:

               mkdir /usr/sys/newmach
               cd /usr/sys/newmach
               (create conf)
               /etc/config
               make

     FILES
          ../conf/makefile    makefile template
          ../conf/files       list of kernel source files
          files               more sources specific to this machine
          ../conf/devices     list of device handlers
          devices             more devices specific to this machine
          conf                machine description

     BUGS
          At the moment, it's also necessary to create
          /usr/sys/machine/sparam.h.
