I have a test system where I've accumulated a large number of jails. To update them (I'm not using the method outlined in the Handbook), I'd like to avoid mounting /usr/src and /usr/obj within each and then jexec-ing a shell but instead, perform everything on the host system directly. Would the following be appropriate?
/etc/rc.d/jail stop cd /usr/src myjail=/home/jails/myjail mergemaster -p -t $myjail/var/tmp/temproot -D $myjail make installworld DESTDIR=$myjail mergemaster -t $myjail/var/tmp/temproot -D $myjail ... /etc/rc.d/jail start The second question relates to applying patches. One of the latest security advisories, for example, provides these instructions: cd /usr/src patch < /path/to/patch cd /usr/src/lib/bind make obj && make depend && make && make install cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/named make obj && make depend && make && make install /etc/rc.d/named restart Can the "make install" part be modified to include DESTDIR? Thanks. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
