USERCONF(4)                  Device Drivers Manual                 USERCONF(4)

     userconf - in-kernel device configuration manager

     options USERCONF

     userconf is the in-kernel device configuration manager.  It is used to
     alter the kernel autoconfiguration framework at runtime.  userconf is
     activated from the boot loader by passing the -c option to the kernel.

     The general command syntax is:

           command [option]

     userconf has a more(1)-like functionality; if a number of lines in a
     command's output exceeds the number defined in the lines variable, then
     userconf displays "-- more --" and waits for a response, which may be one

           <return>  one more line.

           <space>   one more page.

           q         abort the current command, and return to the command
                     input mode.

     userconf supports the following commands:

     lines count
            Specify the number of lines before more.

     base 8 | 10 | 16
            Base for displaying large numbers.
