DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2007-08
Re: Is DragonFly using OSS 4.0?
One thing I would like to see is another nrelease target that brings
in a ton more packages - GUI, print, and everything else needed to
create a multi-media workstation, for a DVD burn instead of a CD burn.
Our offical base releases will probably never incorporate that stuff,
but if we had a target I'm sure some enterprising individual would
start putting out DVD builds.
Insofar as OSS goes... its not on my list, but I'm not against interested
parties exploring development. Most of it would probably want to be
PkgSrc based but some kernel work might be needed to streamline
In anycase, I am going to change the way nrelease builds work so the
enhancements can be specified separately on the 'make' command line
instead of having to create meta targets for all the combinations.
I'll leave the current meta-targets in place for now but eventually
we will want to remove them in favor of the new scheme.
e.g. instead of doing:
we would want to do:
make installer release
Which in turn would make it a whole lot easier to create targets that
allow one to customize the release ISO even more easily then we can now.
e.g. something like:
make installer multimedia release
