     kvm_mkdb - create kernel database


     kvm_mkdb [-v] [-o directory] [file]


     kvm_mkdb creates a database in /var/db containing information about the
     specified file. If no file is specified, /bsd is used by default. The
     file is named kvm_filename.db, where filename is the name of the file
     read. Various library routines consult this database. The only informa-
     tion currently stored is the kernel namelist, which is used by the
     kvm_nlist(3) function. However, in the future the database may contain
     other static information about the current system.

     The options are as follows:

     -o directory  Allows the specification of a directory other than /var/db
                   for the database to be created in.

     -v            Yields slightly more verbose operation.






     The kvm_mkdb utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
