buildworld and buildkernel targets are
fairly sophisticated.

The /usr/obj tree corresponds to the source
directory, so if you have your 5.5 sources in
and your 6.1 sources in
/src/6.1 (or /usr/src/6.1 for that matter)

the world(s) would be built in
/usr/obj/src/5.5/ and /usr/obj/src/6.1/
repsectively. (Or /usr/obj/usr/src/6.1)

If the purpose is to buildworld on one
fast machine and then export it to slower
machines on th' network, this works
admirably well.
thank you!!  this was the exact hint i was hoping for!


well, so far, kinda so good.

i was able to cvsup 5.5-RELENG, 6.1-STABLE, and 6.1-RELENG to my build box. i did a test kernel on the 6.1-RELENG, and that went fine, pretty much as expected. but the 5.5 will not build. i get this error:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/5.5-RELENG/src]# make buildkernel KERNCONF=TYCHE

should building parts of 5.5 from a 6.1-buildserver be possible? or should i install 5.5 on my buildserver, and compile 5.5 from there as well as the higher versions?


If I were you I would cvsup the entire repository (for src-all).
Then I would set up chroot-ed environments for each world you want to build. When you want to do a build checkout the
version you want to your chroot-ed /usr/src directory.
There are more details @ /usr/src/UPDATING.  In your chroot
environment you'll need everything for doing a build
(libraries, headers, etc.).  What worked well for me was
duplicating the base system root directories.  One nice
thing about this, for instance, is that you can have
customized /etc/make.conf files.  With this setup you can
even do a chroot-ed install world, make dist, etc.  There
are hints for this in UPDATING as well.
