       mkconsole - a program to build or update boot console command files

       /etc/mkconsole [kernel_image_name]

       The  shell  script  is  used  to either build or update console storage
       media, as necessary, depending on the processor type.  It uses the pro‐
       gram  to sense the processor type and accordingly, builds two boot com‐
       mand procedures required to boot the currently booted system disk.  The
       VAX  11/780, VAX 11/785, VAX 11/730, VAX 8600 and VAX 8650 are the only
       supported processor  types.   After  the	 console  media	 is  built  or
       updated, you can boot the system using the b or b ask commands from the
       console mode prompt.

       If a kernel_image_name is given as  an  argument,  that	file  will  be
       treated	as  the	 running  kernel file and opened by the sizer program.
       The default kernel image name is /vmunix.
