I am new to this list and new to freeBSD. I run a Mandrake 9.1 server and
wish to convert to FreeBSD. Here are 2 questions that I have.
A) I have reinstall freeBSD many times over and over. I work with W2k
machine at work and do a Unattended install when I don't want to select
the same options over and over again on multiple machines. Is there a way
I can create a install Config file to select all my options for me? Is
there a way I can take a snapshot of the way the OS is currently
configured and make a Install Config File? Maybe something that will auto
set my TimeZone, Partition / Slice sizes, just to get the Base OS
installed without any ports (except for maybe Lynx Text Web Browser)
B) after installing Various ports on the system, do I have to do a Make Clean after each install or can I run Make Clean after installing all of my required Ports?
Just as FYI I am running FreeBSD 5.1, I have downloaded and Burned the 2 ISO's (Full Install and Repair / Fix It) I run the install from the cd, then I choose to NOT install the ports, download the 19.x meg file from FreeBSD.org/ports and un Tar it into the /usr folder.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
A) Have a look at dump and restore.
B) Type 'make install clean' or use portupgrade.
