Set bios/eeprom

Sorry for the Solaris reference but It's all I know. In Solaris I can set PROM paramaters while on the system running normal operations. Reboot and have the changes take hold. Or, I can do it at the prom/bios level (ok prompt). Is there a similar way of doing this in Tru64 or is there only getting to the >>> prompt to change these settings?
Something similar to the 'eeprom' command in Solaris?

Re: Set bios/eeprom


see man consvar. With that you can get and set prom variables.

It is still cool to see that people are understand each other.

Its like to a talk to an alien (tru64), but at the end we all talk about the same - UNIX

Thank you. Great forum, great beer :-)
