Hi all

I've two servers (in fact guest in vmware) on don't have enought disk space
to make buildkernel (or world).

For the world freebsd-update can work. But for the kernel I've my own

So if I compile the kernel on the other server how can I put it on the
first ?


With an NFS mount, with sneakernet, or scp.
On the machine with enough disk space:
make buildkernel installkernel DESTDIR=/nfsmount KERNCONF=otherkernel #hackish and i'd be worried of this. It will force a backup of the running kernel to the remote /boot/kernel.old

I'd recommend:
        make buildkernel installkernel DESTDIR=/tmp KERNCONF=otherkernel
        tar -czf /tmp/otherkernel.tgz /tmp/boot/kernel
# bring the otherkernel.tgz file to the machine, maybe by usb stick, and extract. don't forget to tar -xz*p*f (permissions)


But in that case why I can't just do

        cd /boot
        tar czvf some_place/kernel.tgz kernel

and just transfert the kernel.tgz and make the tar xpf ?

That is what I have above, commented out as another option.

How thin on disk space are you?

2 Go for everything.... But I can mount by NFS more space (very more).
Thanks for the answer.
