The /etc directory

The /etc directory

The /etc directory contains miscellaneous system program and data files. The data files in the directories /etc/rc.d and /etc/rc2.d contain initialization commands run by the /etc/rc2 script when the system goes into multiuser mode. See ``Changing scripts in /etc/rc2.d'' for more information on the /etc/rc directories.

The link kit (kernel configuration files, device drivers, and associated utilities) is located in the /etc/conf directory. See the configure(ADM), mkdev(ADM), mtune(F), stune(F) manual pages and the Kernel/Driver Interface.

The data files in the directory /etc/default contain default information used by system commands. Each file contains information explaining its purpose and the associated command or application. See ``Using the System Defaults Manager'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook or the default(F) manual page for more information.
