3. # ./build.sh -U -D /path/to/destdir install=/
As root, install to / the distribution that was built by example 2.
Even though this is run as root, -U is required so that the permis-
sions stored in /path/to/destdir/METALOG are correctly applied to
the files as they're copied to /.
I do my builds with following commands:
./build.sh -M/usr/obj -T/usr/tools -D/usr/NetBSD/dest -rU tools
./build.sh -M/usr/obj -T/usr/tools -D/usr/NetBSD/dest -uU build
./build.sh -M/usr/obj -T/usr/tools -D/usr/NetBSD/dest -uU kernel=TXPO
Install kernel with cp
./build.sh -M/usr/obj -T/usr/tools -D/usr/NetBSD/dest -uU install=/
1. line have -r to "Remove contents of TOOLDIR and DESTDIR before
building" and -U for "build without requiring root privileges". 2. and 3.
lines have -u so that ./build.sh "do not run "make clean" first" and -U to
