Surely, *someone* who reads this list has upgraded the linux_base port, and figured out the proper way to respond to this prompt.
___________________________________________ Hi, I installed Linux compatibility when I installed FBSD 4.8, but I've never really done anything with it. While portupgrading , I was presented with a prompt that I don't know how to respond to: You need to create the null device in your jail root environment. Run the following commands outside the jail root environment, and then press enter: mkdir -m 0755 -p <Jail Root dir>/dev rm -f <Jail Root dir>//compat/linux/dev/null mknod <Jail Root dir>//compat/linux/dev/null c 2 2 chmod 666 <Jail Root dir>//compat/linux/dev/null I found that this prompt comes from the makefile in the linux-base port, which I don't have access to at the moment, so I can't quote it exactly. Clueless, I just pressed enter at the prompt, thinking I could always go back and do it later, or deinstall the port and reinstall it when I learn what to do. I know what a jail is, but how do I know what my <Jail Root dir> is? Also, why the double slashes in the last 3 lines? What do they mean? What is the proper way to deal with this prompt? -- Thanks, Charles _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
