Re: Custom kernel

Use nativekernel instead. See 'man build'.
The buildworld failed because src-sys.tar.bz2 is kernel source only.
When I tried that, it gave the same error message: no
sys.mk file. So I deleted /usr/src and extracted the
kernel tree from src-sys.tar.bz2 again. and tried it -
this ran for a bit and then couldn't find a file...
So I re-installed DF from scratch. But I got the same
error. :-( Just to be sure, I am recompiling the kernel
using GENERIC and it seems to be running fine. Obviously
there's a problem with my config file, which I will sort
Thanks to everyone who helped, I knew this was mainly
my lack of knowledge. But wouldn't it be advisable if
the wiki were updated to reflect this path to making a
custom kernel? (src-sys.tar.bz2 -> make nativekernel)
(Especially for those who might not be able to go online
with their build machine?) Thanks to everyone again.
