BOOT.CONFIG(5) BSD File Formats Manual BOOT.CONFIG(5)
boot.config -- Configuration file for the boot blocks
The boot.config file contains options for the FreeBSD boot block code.
When the FreeBSD boot loader runs, it searches the ``a'' slice of the boot partition for a boot.config file (as a result, slices which are
missing an ``a'' partition require user intervention during the boot process). If the boot.config file is found, its contents are used as
the default configuration options for the boot block code and are echoed to the system console.
A valid format of this file is to put BIOS drive number, a controller type, a unit number, a partition, a kernel file name, and any other
valid boot(8) option on a single line, as it is done at the ``boot:'' prompt.
The options related to the boot image selection described below and all the other options available for boot.config are documented in detail
in the boot(8) manual page.
/boot.config parameters for the boot blocks (optional)
# echo "-P" > /boot.config
will activate the serial console of FreeBSD.
# echo "1:ad(1,a)/boot/loader" > /boot.config
will instruct the second stage of boot(8) on the first disk to boot with the third boot(8) stage from the second disk.
# echo "1:ad(1,a)/boot/loader -P" > /boot.config
will do both of the above.
