I Still do it the old way on current amd64: 1. cd /sys/amd64/conf 2. cp GENERIC MYKERNEL 3. [make changes to MYKERNEL and save] 4. config MYKERNEL 5. cd ../compile/MYKERNEL 6. make cleandepend && make depend && make Although i have a script that does all of the above. Works fine here. Must be something in you src.conf, make.conf or MYKERNEL Here is the script that works for me: #!/bin/sh cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/config make obj make clean cleandepend make obj make depend all install date > /tmp/date.txt doclean=true autoinstall=true kernelname=pozo for arg; do case $arg in -n*) doclean=false;; -i*) autoinstall=true;; -*) usage;; *) kernelname=$arg;; esac done if [ -z "$kernelname" ]; then kernelname=`hostname -s | tr a-z A-Z` fi cd /sys/`uname -m`/conf if [ ! -e $kernelname ]; then echo "$0: kernel configuration file $kernelname does not exist" echo -n 'Create one from GENERIC [n]?' if read ans && expr $ans : 'y*' >/dev/null; then sed '/^#SED0/,$d' < GENERIC > $kernelname lsdev -c >> $kernelname echo '#SED0' >> $kernelname sed '1,/^#SED0/d' < GENERIC >> $kernelname else exit 1 fi fi set -e rm -rf /sys/amd64/compile/pozo config $kernelname cd /sys/amd64/compile/$kernelname if $doclean; then make clean fi make depend make -j8 all if $autoinstall; then make install fi date >> /tmp/date.txt cat /tmp/date.txt rm /tmp/date.txt exit 0 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
