um_add_service(1) add a service module to umview


um_add_service [-p ] service_module [ , module_options ]


This command adds a service module to umview. Modules will be loaded as shared libraries thus all the rules to load libraries apply. Modules must be loaded from a directory within the search path or should be specified by their pathnames. If necessary configure the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable appropriately.
module_options are module specific configuration options, thus the reader should refer to each service module manual for a complete description.


the module becomes permanent when set.
