Hi guys, I hope I'm posting in the right place. My situation is that I've got a laptop thats booted with a live-cd FreeSBIE. My laptops HD (/dev/ad0s1a) is mounted on /tmp/fixed and I'm trying to build and install a kernel to that mounted filesystem, with home, tmp, var and usr mounted on /tmp/fixed/home etc.
I've got the kernel sources extracted to /tmp/fixed/usr/src/ by the following: # cd /path-to/6.2-RELEASE/src # cat ssys.[a-d]* | tar -zxvf - -C /tmp/fixed/usr/src # cat sbase.[a-d]* | tar -zxvf - -C /tmp/fixed/usr/src/ My custom kernel is in /tmp/fixed/root/kernels/CUSTOM, with a symlink from /tmp/fixed/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/CUSTOM pointing to it. But I'm getting errors when from /tmp/fixed/usr/src I run # make buildkernel KERNCONF=CUSTOM I've tried to run that under a chroot too: # chroot /tmp/fixed # setenv MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX /usr/obj2 # setenv DESTDIR / # make buildkernel KERNCONF=CUSTOM But I'm still getting errors, mainly with ACPI. Is it possible to do what I'm looking at? ie build a custom kernel using sources from a mounted filesystem, and install it to that mounted filesystem? Thanks plenty. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
