Thank you for the reference. That is a very nice port. I will definitely make use of it when I need multiple jails (>3). I only need 2 at the moment. I did a little more digging and it seems that I can install a jail using the base system's install script. It's found on CD 1 (6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso): (cd0 mounted on /dvdrw) $ pwd /dvdrw/6.2-RELEASE/base $ ls -la total 42496 dr-xr-xr-x 2 root wheel 6144 Jan 12 2007 . dr-xr-xr-x 13 root wheel 2048 Jan 12 2007 .. -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 1624 Jan 12 2007 CHECKSUM.MD5 -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 2779 Jan 12 2007 CHECKSUM.SHA256 -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 1425408 Jan 12 2007 base.aa -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 1425408 Jan 12 2007 base.ab -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 1425408 Jan 12 2007 base.ac -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 1425408 Jan 12 2007 base.ad [snip] -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 962020 Jan 12 2007 base.bd -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 898 Jan 12 2007 base.inf -r--r--r-- 3 root wheel 1204896 Jan 12 2007 base.mtree -r-xr-xr-x 3 root wheel 427 Apr 30 2002 install.sh I can use the install.sh script in place of the make installworld/distribution commands for the jail. This makes it possible to update the jail using freebsd-update. I wonder if the ezjail port can be tweaked to add an option for installing via the 'base' as above, rather than its current methods. In any event, I set DESTDIR to /tmp/base, ran the install.sh script and a full base system was placed in /tmp/base. A few jail details (IP, devfs) later and I was able to run freebsd-update from within the jail and it updated the world to -p8. Note I had to edit the freebsd-updates.conf file (within the jail) and set the Components variable to world only. Caveats: The jail is a full system. This might not be desirable. Normally, one can control what gets placed in the base jail system using the various NO_* knobs in a make.conf file (i.e. you can choose to keep things like the toolchain, sendmail, and bind from being placed in the jail). A certain amount of work could be done to remove those subsystems individually after the fact, I suppose. I wonder where I can get a list of files for each NO_* knob?
