NAME

prtconf - print system configuration

SYNOPSIS

SPARC /usr/sbin/prtconf [ -V ] | [ -F ] | [ -x ] | [ -vpPD ] IA /usr/sbin/prtconf [ -V ] | [ -x ] | [ -vpPD ]

DESCRIPTION

The prtconf command prints the system configuration informa- tion. The output includes the total amount of memory, and the configuration of system peripherals formatted as a dev- ice tree.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported: -D For each system peripheral in the device tree, displays the name of the device driver used to manage the peripheral. -F (SPARC only). Returns the device path name of the con- sole frame buffer, if one exists. If there is no frame buffer, prtconf returns a non-zero exit code. This flag must be used by itself. It returns only the name of the console, frame buffer device or a non-zero exit code. For example, if the console frame buffer on a SPARCstation 1 is cgthree in SBus slot #3, the command returns: /sbus@1,f80000000/cgthree@3,0. This option could be used to create a symlink for /dev/fb to the actual console device. -p Displays information derived from the device tree pro- vided by the firmware (PROM) on SPARC platforms or the booting system on IA platforms.The device tree infor- mation displayed using this option is a snapshot of the initial configuration and may not accurately reflect reconfiguration events that occur later. -P Includes information about pseudo devices. By default, information regarding pseudo devices is omitted. -v Specifies verbose mode. -V Displays platform-dependent PROM (on SPARC platforms) or booting system (on IA platforms) version informa- tion. This flag must be used by itself. The output is a string. The format of the string is arbitrary and platform-dependent. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 8 Aug 2000 1 Maintenance Commands prtconf(1M) -x Reports if the firmware on this system is 64-bit ready. Some existing platforms may need a firmware upgrade in order to run the 64-bit kernel. If the operation is not applicable to this platform or the firmware is already 64-bit ready, it exits silently with a return code of zero. If the operation is applicable to this platform and the firmware is not 64-bit ready, it displays a descriptive message on the standard output and exits with a non-zero return code. The hardware platform documentation contains more information about the platforms that may need a firmware upgrade in order to run the 64-bit kernel. This flag overrides all other flags and must be used by itself.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned: 0 No error occurred. non-zero With the -F option (SPARC only), a non-zero return value means that the output device is not a frame buffer. With the -x option, a non-zero return value means that the firmware is not 64-bit ready. In all other cases, a non-zero return value means that an error occurred.

NOTES

The output of the prtconf command is highly dependent on the version of the PROM installed in the system. The output will be affected in potentially all circumstances. The driver not attached message means that no driver is currently attached to that instance of the device. In gen- eral, drivers are loaded and installed (and attached to hardware instances) on demand, and when needed, and may be uninstalled and unloaded when the device is not in use.
