Manual page for INSTALL_SMALL_KERNEL(8)

install_small_kernel - install a small, pre-configured kernel


/usr/etc/install/install_small_kernel [ hostname ] ...


install_small_kernel is a script that installs a small, pre-configured kernel, GENERIC_SMALL on a host. This kernel supports approximately four users, and is only available for the following configurations:

Sun-3/50 and Sun-3/60 systems with up to 2 SCSI disks, 
    1 SCSI tape
Sun-3/80 systems with up to 4 SCSI disks, 1 SCSI tape
Sun-4/110 systems with up to 2 SCSI disks, 1 SCSI tape
SPARCsystem 330 systems with up to 4 SCSI disks,
    1 SCSI tape
SPARCstation 1, 1+, and 2 systems with up to 8 SCSI 
    disks, 4 SCSI tapes, 2 CD-ROM drives, 1 floppy disk

If hostname is a server that does not fit any of the above configurations, install_small_kernel can be used to install the small kernel on its clients.

If no hostnames are specified, install_small_kernel cycles through all the clients configured for a server to determine the small kernel installs to be made. If the 'small_kernel' flag in the client file, /etc/install/client.hostname is set to 'yes', that client will not be processed. To force re-installation of a small kernel on any clients, simply call install_small_kernel with the appropriate client names.

install_small_kernel prompts for confirmation before actually doing the install on any host.

install_small_kernel is executable from the miniroot, as well as single-user and multi-user modes. It supports standalone and server configuration in all cases, but dataless systems are supported in multi-user mode only. This script is restricted to the super-user.
