I crafted a reply, then noticed the email was to me. I've been using cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/[someplace] svn up . [indent so not as to appear in history] make cleandepend make depend make obj and if that fails mmv /etc/make.conf / [ not precisely that but same thing ] zsh /tmp/llvm39.sh #/bin/sh export CC=/usr/local/bin/clang39 export CXX=/usr/local/bin/clang++39 export CPP=/usr/local/bin/clang-cpp cd $1 # /usr/src/usr.sbin/pw make cleandepend make obj make depend make install ............... to make the build with a new clang that may work better. .............. I've more or less given up until a new buildworld/installworld risky at here, installworld sometimes fails though, and only hope that the many migrating to BSD I see on linux.reddit.com and elsewhere don't pick up on ZFS so much as improvements and robust current fails-installworld-less-often, reinvoke/reinvigorate portmanager [of old], pkgdb -F [long since forgotten], portmaster, portupgrade, etc to be again 2004 style seamlessly integrated into/with packages and the other wish-list stuff I once wrote about [parallel pkg-fetch for production machines depending upon a flat-file /var/db/pkg 'local.sqlite3' that can be awked sed'ed into temporary forgiveness upon a hosed pkg upgrade, then switched back to the newer pkg commands in a duplicate-pkg-methodology on same-production machine framework that would stand far above anything debian arch ubuntu centos etc could do, ....................... but mystified still by terse not upto newbie speed in /usr/src/UPDATING to cover all the edge cases, mfsbsd methodologies etc, that people detail in the forums, and on blog posts, that never actually make it into local new-install documentation, that could be done if persons wrote as verbosely and profusely as I seem to do, but only in an ask ask ask and never produce produce manner, for which I apologize, for I have other demands upon my time that conflict and as you can see broadly limit my input to email and the once-yearly bugzilla of note or that passes into irrelevance upon the next iteration of an installworld. ............ OTOH I closely follow HAMMER HAMMER2 improvements as a on-up on UFS2, and openbsd forum details for howtos that do not appear sometimes in the FreeBSD forum. .......... So thanks for the reply to my email. ........... Things are peachy more or less here with FreeBSD, for instance uptime, 16:04 despite daily core files and bland ignorance of kgbd upon the debugging custom kernel backtraces that appear during dmesg, starting Xorg, umounting backup filesystems, and the daily browser freeze if I've too many open, or too large pages in links -g. ............ But enough of wall of text. ............ Thanks again. ............ Jeff PS sorry for the rough draft. I am out of time. .......... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
