Why not ~/soekris. Place it in your own home directory under soekris. > - build everything, setting (if needed?) DESTDIR to somewhere in > /soekris and MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/soekris/usr/obj If you can write to /usr/obj/ then buildworld will use /usr/obj/ as the prefix and continue with the full path to the sources you are builing. Normally you end up with a /usr/obj/usr/src/.... but if you put the sources in your own home directory should get something like: /usr/obj/home/dkelly/soekris/src/... Speaking of which, you know you can buildworld as a mere mortal if you can write to $DESTDIR? No need to be root until installworld. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ===================================================================== The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
