       doconfig - a program to aid system configuration

       /etc/doconfig [-c config_file] [-e ed_script]

       The  shell script uses the program to help the user generate a configu‐
       ration file for a new ULTRIX system kernel.   The  script  prompts  the
       user for a system name and if the name does not already exist, builds a
       system configuration file with that system name.

       Whether the configuration file is built or not, the  script  then  puts
       the user into an edit-configure-build loop until both the configuration
       and the kernel build run without errors.	 Additional  runs  of  can  be
       made to tune the configuration further.

       When  new  hardware is added to a system, the configuration file should
       be updated to reflect the new system configuration.  When  updating  an
       existing	 configuration	file or creating a new configuration file with
       the system must be operating the generic kernel, or  new	 hardware  may
       not  be	found.	The following steps should be used for successful com‐

       -c     The  name	 of the existing configuration file should be supplied
	      without specifying the pathname.	This file should exist in  the
	      directory.   A new kernel will be built using the specified con‐
	      figuration file.

       -e     When specified, the configuration file will be edited using  the
	      script before building the new kernel.
