On some of the systems where I use different versions, I have /usr/srcs mounted of the NFS-server. in which I have. /usr/srcs/src8/src /usr/srcs/src9/src /usr/srcs/src10/src /usr/srcs/head/src Then also have /usr/objs mounted, with the same setup And on the remote systems link /usr/src -> /usr/srcs/src??/src and same for obj.... I have yet to run into trouble when I do the normal things. It gets messy if I'd like to build both i386 and amd64 in the same obj-tree. That does not always work, but adding a differentiating i386 and amd64 to the hierarchy seemed to fix it. But I retired all but one i386, and that is soon to follow. --WjW _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
