NEWFS_SYSVBFS(8)        NetBSD System Manager's Manual        NEWFS_SYSVBFS(8)

NAME
     newfs_sysvbfs -- construct a new System V Boot File System

SYNOPSIS
     newfs_sysvbfs [-FZ] [-s sectors] special

DESCRIPTION
     newfs_sysvbfs builds a System V boot file system on the specified spe-
     cial.  If it is a device, the size information will be taken from the
     disk label and before running newfs_sysvbfs the disk must be labeled
     using disklabel(8); the proper fstype is ``SysVBFS''.  Otherwise, the
     size must be specified on the command line.

     The following arguments are supported:

     -F          Create file system to a regular file.

     -s sectors  Create file system with specified number of disk sectors.

     -Z          Fill file with zeroes instead of creating a sparse file.

SEE ALSO
     disklabel(5), disktab(5), disklabel(8), diskpart(8)

HISTORY
     A newfs_sysvbfs command first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.

BUGS
     The sysvbfs support is still experimental and there are few sanity
     checks.

NetBSD 6.0                       April 9, 2009                      NetBSD 6.0
