MINIBSD - I am presently running regular ole freebsd 5.1. I eventually plan to rebuild the OS for an application. For now it is vanilla flavor freebsd.
GENERIC - Agreed if no changes were made the kernel doesn't have to be rebuilt. I used the unchanged GENERIC file to verify the kernel would build before I started making changes. It insures all the files/scripts are in place.
Alternative build process: I tried it that way as well. Got the same errors.
Hope it helps Andrew

I am running freebsd 5.1 and as fyi have been building suse and redhat
kernels for a while without problems. But this is my first time
building the freebsd kernel)
This is what I did.
config GENERIC <-- no changes to the file then per the results of config
If no changes were made you don't need to recompile your kernel.
cd ../compile/GENERIC then
All this stuff is not the right way around, at least for FreeBSD, and it
looks like you're running MiniBSD(?) of which I know nothing ;)
Anyway, this is what I do:
cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf cp GENERIC YOURNEWKERNELFILE vi YOURNEWKERNELFILE cd /usr/src make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOURNEWKERNELFILE make installkernel KERNCONF=YOURNEWKERNELFILE reboot
