CPURC(8)CPURC(8)

NAME

cpurc, cpurc.local, termrc, termrc.local – boot scripts

SYNOPSIS

cpurc
cpurc.local

termrc
termrc.local

DESCRIPTION

After the kernel boots, it execs /boot (see boot(8)), which in turn execs /$cputype/init. Init(8) sets the $service environment variable to cpu or terminal, and then invokes the appropriate rc script to bring the system up.

Based on the values of $sysname and $terminal these scripts start appropriate network processes and administrative daemons and enable swapping. Cpurc sets /env/boottime to the time cpurc was executed and /env/NPROC to a value suitable for parallel compilation in mk(1).

If an executable file /bin/termrc.local exists, termrc will execute it. If an executable file /cfg/$sysname/termrc exists for the machine named $sysname, termrc will execute it next. Automatic initialization of the mouse and VGA on a PC is suppressed, if the user is none. These files should be edited by local installations to reflect the configuration of their systems.

On CPU servers, read cpurc for termrc in the previous paragraph.
