Re: How to build just one device....
:If I make changes to only the ata device, what is the makefile sequence I
:need to only build that device and link into the kernel w/o rebuilding
If you previously ran the buildkernel target you can run the
quickkernel target to only rebuild what has changed. It
will still rerun the dependancies, but that doesn't take too
# do a full build
make buildkernel KERNCONF=blah
# do an incremental rebuild
make quickkernel KERNCONF=blah
You can also cd directly into the kernel build directory,
/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/blah (that is the path if /usr/src is not a
softlink), that the above make's created, and just type 'make' and
'make install', which skips the depend step.
