MOUNT_KERNFS(8) 					    BSD System Manager's Manual 					   MOUNT_KERNFS(8)

NAME
mount_kernfs -- mount the /kern file system SYNOPSIS
mount_kernfs [-o options] /kern mount_point DESCRIPTION
The mount_kernfs command attaches an instance of the kernel parameter namespace to the global filesystem namespace. The conventional mount point is /kern. The directory specified by mount_point is converted to an absolute path before use. This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time. The filesystem includes several regular files which can be read, some of which can also be written. The contents of the files is in a machine-independent format, either a string, or an integer in decimal ASCII. Where numbers are returned, a trailing newline character is also added. The options are as follows: -o Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of options. See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings. FILES
boottime the time at which the system was last booted (decimal ASCII). copyright kernel copyright message. hostname the hostname, with a trailing newline. The hostname can be changed by writing to this file. A trailing newline will be stripped from the hostname being written. hz the frequency of the system clock (decimal ASCII). ipsecsa the directory that contains IPsec security associations (SA) in PF_KEY format. Filenames are SPI in decimal number. The content of files can be inspected by using setkey(8). ipsecsp the directory that contains IPsec security policies in PF_KEY format. Filenames are security policy ID in decimal number. The content of files can be inspected by using setkey(8). loadavg the 1, 5 and 15 minute load average in kernel fixed-point format. The final integer is the fix-point scaling factor. All numbers are in decimal ASCII. msgbuf the kernel message buffer, also read by syslogd(8), through the log device, and by dmesg(8). pagesize the machine pagesize (decimal ASCII). physmem the number of pages of physical memory in the machine (decimal ASCII). rootdev the root device. rrootdev the raw root device. time the second and microsecond value of the system clock. Both numbers are in decimal ASCII. version the kernel version string. The head line for /etc/motd can be generated by running: ``sed 1q /kern/version'' SEE ALSO

MOUNT_CD9660(8) 					    BSD System Manager's Manual 					   MOUNT_CD9660(8)

NAME
mount_cd9660 -- mount an ISO-9660 filesystem SYNOPSIS
mount_cd9660 [-egjr] [-o options] [-s startsector] special | node DESCRIPTION
The mount_cd9660 command attaches the ISO-9660 filesystem residing on the device special to the global filesystem namespace at the location indicated by node. This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time. The options are as follows: -e Enable the use of extended attributes. -g Do not strip version numbers on files. (By default, if there are files with different version numbers on the disk, only the last one will be listed.) In either case, files may be opened without explicitly stating a version number. -j Do not use any Joliet extensions included in the filesystem. -o Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of options. See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings. -r Do not use any Rockridge extensions included in the filesystem. -s startsector Start the filesystem at startsector. Normally, if the underlying device is a CD-ROM drive, mount_cd9660 will try to figure out the last track from the CD-ROM containing data, and start the filesystem there. If the device is not a CD-ROM, or the table of contents cannot be examined, the filesystem will be started at sector 0. This option can be used to override the behaviour. Note that startsector is measured in CD-ROM blocks, with 2048 bytes each. SEE ALSO
mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8) BUGS
POSIX device node mapping is currently not supported. Version numbers are not stripped if Rockridge extensions are in use. In this case, accessing files that don't have Rockridge names without version numbers gets the one with the lowest version number and not the one with the highest. There is no ECMA support. HISTORY
The mount_cd9660 utility first appeared 4.4BSD. 4th Berkeley Distribution March 27, 1994 4th Berkeley Distribution
