sizer - Displays information about the system or kernel, or creates a system configuration file
/usr/sbin/sizer [ -b, -c, -gr, -gt, -l, -m, -M, -nfilename, -p, -r, -v, -wc, -wk, -wp, -wt, -wu ]
The sizer program reports information about the running system, including the name of the kernel file. This program is also used by the doconfig program to create a system configuration file.
Displays the name of the file from which the running kernel was booted. Displays the CPU type of the running CPU. Displays an ASCII string (terminated by a line feed) that specifies the size, in pixels, for each graphics screen that exists in the system. The information is displayed in the following format: width x height. For example, 1280x1024 specifies the default graphics screen on a DEC 3000 Model 500 system. The resolutions of all the existing screens are displayed on a single line in the same order as the ROM ID strings that are displayed by the -gt option. If no screens exist in the system, then 0x0 is displayed. Displays an ASCII ROM ID string (terminated by a line feed) for each graphics screen that exists in the system. The ROM ID string identifies the graphics controller for the screen. Some controllers can manage more than one physical or logical screen. If there are no screens in the system, then nothing is returned. Displays the flag for the small-memory system, or zero. Displays the running kernel's module list, if that kernel was linked at boot time. The information displayed is a space-separated list detailing the exact linker flags and module names used to bootstrap link the running kernel. If the running kernel is a statically linked image, sizer displays an empty string. Displays the names of foreign kits that were linked into the running kernel at boot time, including the name of the device from which they were loaded. The device name is the one known to the console. (For example, on a DEC 3000 system, the device name for a CD-ROM device is dka400). If the running kernel is a statically linked image, sizer displays an empty string. Creates a configuration file. The -n option creates a configuration file in /tmp/filename and a shell script named /tmp/filename.devs that runs MAKEDEV and creates the device special names for the devices specified in the configuration file. The system should be running the /genvmunix generic kernel to ensure that all devices and options are available.
