mkdevalloc - Make device_allocate entries




     The mkdevalloc command writes  to  standard  out  a  set  of
     device_allocate(4)  entries  describing  the  system's frame
     buffer, audio and removable media devices.

     The mkdevalloc command is used by the init.d(4)  scripts  to
     create or update the /etc/security/device_allocate file.

     Entries are generated based  on  the  device  special  files
     found  in /dev. For the different categories of devices, the
     mkdevalloc command checks  for  the  following  files  under

     audio           /dev/audio, /dev/audioctl, /dev/sound/...
     tape            /dev/rst*, /dev/nrst*, /dev/rmt/...
     floppy          /dev/diskette, /dev/fd*, /dev/rdiskette, /dev/rfd*
     removable disk  /dev/sr*, /dev/nsr*, /dev/dsk/c0t?d0s?, /dev/rdsk/c0t?d0s?
     frame buffer    /dev/fb

     All entries set the device-minimum and device-maximum fields
     to  the  hex  representations  of  ADMIN_LOW and ADMIN_HIGH,
     respectively.  The  device-authorization  field  is  set  to
     solaris.device.allocate,  except  for the framebuffer entry,
     where it is set  to  *.  The  device-name,  device-type  and
     device-clean fields are set to the following values:

                     device-name      device-type   device-clean

     audio           audio            audio         audio_clean_wrapper
     tape            mag_tape_0,1,... st            st_clean
     floppy          floppy_0,1,...   fd            disk_clean
     removable disk  cdrom_0,1,...    sr            disk_clean
     frame buffer    framebuffer      fb            /bin/true
