DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-11
Re: Make Buildworld Fails
Hmm. This is a new one to me. I am assuming that you did
a cvs checkout of the sources into /usr/src before attempting to
run the buildworld. The Mini ISO that you downloaded is from November
2nd, it's possible that it snapshotted the kernel at a bad time.
Probably the easiest way to bootstrap into DragonFly, especially if
you are on a modem, is to start with a FreeBSD-4.x CD (I'm hoping you
have one) and do a FreeBSD install. Then get cvsup and cvsup down
the DragonFly CVS tree. After that you should be able to checkout the
DragonFly src and do a buildworld, buildkernel, installkernel,
The mini-iso issue needs to be revisited soon. I am a bit backlogged
at the moment but I do believe that it is important and I will spend some
time experimenting with the 'live mini CD' concept I brought up a month
or two ago.
:Hello DragonflyBSD peoples:
: I recently installed the mininst.iso from
:http://chlamydia.fs.ei.tum.de/pub/DragonFly/ to a blank drive. The install
:went well and the machine boots. I then noticed that no source was included.
:I initially began FTP'ing it down from the dragonflybsd ftp site, as I am
:on a dial up and this allowed me to get it chunks. I chose this path:
:ftp://ftp.dragonflybsd.org/dcvs/src as it needed to be done over several
:days and I didn't want it to change on me midstream. My idea here was to
:then cvsup to current. Since this was a blank install I figured I could
:just put the source into /usr/src so this is my supfile:
:*default release=cvs tag=.
:*default delete use-rel-suffix
: After a successful cvsup session I then attempted a make buildworld. It
:did not succeed, and below is a snippet as an example. I did not have
:enough screen scroll back buffer to see all of it or where it began, but it
:is mostly various similar renditions to the below snippet.

: I am not a Unix guru, more like a curious expirementer. I am also not a
:coder so as far as for the type of help you probably would need I am at a
:loss. Also I fully realize that in a project of this scope that problems
:such as mine may rank more as a nuisance factor and be prioritized as such,
:as they should be. However, with you guys being much more experienced with
:this kind of thing I figured it couldn't hurt to run it by you. Any hints
:or suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated. Thank you!
