on my fastest machine, then as root on the laptop, over an NFS mount, I
attempted to do a "./build.sh install". This failed over a missing "pax"
Also, everytime I run build.sh, nbmake seems to get rebuilt. This doesn't
take *too* long, but is a bit annoying. (Yes, I guess I could just build
sets and manually unpack them onto the laptop...)
Is it supposed to work to "./build.sh distribution && ./build.sh install=/"?
Is there any reason why it should fail if the "install" is on another
For whatever it's worth, both machines are running NetBSD 1.6, differing
only in kernel configs and a tiny hack to the PCMCIA ne driver for the
I guess for now I'll just untar everything but etc.tgz by hand on the
laptop, but I'd like to be able to do this using build.sh.
A quick network topology, for concreteness:
odysseus --- NFS ---> hermes

while "hermes" is both "hermes" and "phermes"...(^&)
