Solaris Transition Guide


The /devices tree represents the tree of devices recognized by the kernel. This tree is configured by the drvconfig(1M) program. drvconfig is normally run only when the system is booted with the -r flag (see "Reconfiguration Boot"). drvconfig configures /devices with information about devices (with drivers) that are connected and ready at boot time.

Entries are exported by device drivers calling ddi_create_minor_node(9F) when they have determined that a device exists.

Use the add_drv(1M) command to add a device to the system. If the driver was successfully added, add_drv will also run drvconfig.
