This program is intended for developers who wish to customize the
extensible menus found in
These new menu entries would perhaps allow the customer to run
configuration programs particular to the product being supplied. The
menumerge utility would usually be run once from an installation
script, merging in the extra menu entries from the file addlist,
present on the installation media, into the menulist file chosen
from the following list:
Extensible menu area
System Configure Kernel
System Configure Network
System Configure Other
The addlist file must be in the same
format as the menulist file.
The suggested method for producing and testing
such an addlist file is as follows:
From the shell, rename the file $HOME/.sysadmmenu,
if it exists.
Start sysadmsh, and select
Select the User menu entry for configuration.
Edit the User menu entry, such that it contains all the menu entries that
are to be added to the above menulist argument.
When you have finished editing the menu area,
check that the menu works by selecting the
User entry from the top level of sysadmsh. Repeat from step 2
When the menu area is correct, quit from sysadmsh.
Move the file $HOME/.sysadmmenu into the development source tree, or
onto the installation media, and add the appropriate menumerge
command to the installation script.
If need be, replace the original $HOME/.sysadmmenu.
Run the installation script, and test that the appropriate extensible menu
areas in sysadmsh contain the new merged entries.
