DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-03
Re: Running X and KDE in DragonFly ???
I installed FreeBSD 4.9 then did a upgrade to DragonFly as per
1.. First, make sure you are running FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE or later.
uname -a will tell you what version you are running. Note: FreeBSD 5
versions will not work for this upgrade.
2.. Remove any FreeBSD source files from your machine. All commands after
this point should be run as root.
rm -rf /usr/src
rm -rf /usr/obj
3.. If you do not have cvsup installed, these commands will download and
install it for you:
4.. Fetch a configuration file for cvsup and run cvsup using that file:
You now will have the DragonFly source files in /usr/src.
5.. You will now want to compile the userland and the kernel.
Then, you can install them:
6.. You will want to make sure your /etc directory is cleaned up:
7.. You now can sync your disk and reboot your machine.
8.. Congratulations! Your computer will boot into DragonFly! Make sure to
check the forums semi-regularly. If you have trouble booting, the bugs forum
is the first place to go.
I am now sitting a the root directory #bsd prompt. I am not sure how to get
the Gui up as things seem different than FreeBSD.
