REBOOT(8)	       BSD/sparc System Manager's Manual	     REBOOT(8)

NAME
     reboot — UNIX bootstrapping procedures

SYNOPSIS
     reboot [-n] [-q]

DESCRIPTION
     Power fail and crash recovery. Normally, the system will reboot itself at
     power-up or after crashes.	 An automatic consistency check of the file
     systems will be performed as described in fsck(8).	 and unless this
     fails, the system will resume multi-user operations.

     Cold starts The SPARC system currently uses the SunOS bootstrap loaders.
     This will be changed in a future version of the system.  The SunOS boot
     will attempt to load vmunix from partition A of the boot device, which
     must currently be an ``sd'' disk.

     The [-s] flag to the SunOS boot loader will being the system up in sin‐
     gle-user mode.  The [-d] flag to the SunOS boot loader will bring the
     system up in debug mode.  Here it waits for a kernel debugger connect;
     see kgdb(8).  Other flags are currently ignored.

FILES
     /vmunix	system code
     /boot	system bootstrap

SEE ALSO
     crash(8), disklabel(8), fsck(8), halt(8), init(8), rc(8), shutdown(8),
     syslogd(8)

BUGS
     The use of Sun disk labels, without the ability to write them, is prob‐
     lematic.
