No, building everything does not require superuser rights. I usually build my src/ snapshots as 'build', at /home/build, by something similar to: # su - build build$ MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/home/build/obj ; export MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX build$ rm -fr obj/* build$ cd src build$ ( make buildworld && make buildkernel ) 2>&1 | tee ~/logfile There are a few places where the build path is recorded, i.e. in the output of uname # uname -v FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #0: Mon May 5 00:43:56 EEST 2008 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/build/obj/home/build/src/sys/KOBE but other than this, there should be nothing that prevents you from building as any non-root user. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
