My steps are:
a) Build a full release
% ./build.sh -U release
or build the distribution sets and my custom kernel
% ./build.sh -U distribution sets kernel=/path/to/kernelconf
b) Install new kernel, and reboot to single user mode.
If this fails, roll back to the old kernel.
c) From single user mode with the disks mounted read-write,
extract all sets except etc.tgz
# for i in /RELEASEDIR/i386/binary/sets/[bcgmt]*.tgz; do
pax -zrpe -f $i
d) Run postinstall from an extracted etc.tgz
# mkdir -p /tmp/etcdist
# cd /tmp/etcdist
# pax -zrpe -f /RELEASEDIR/i386/binary/sets/etc.tgz
# ./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` check
If I'm happy with the changes
# ./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` fix
Clean up the junk
# cd /
# rm -rf /tmp/etcdist
e) Reboot to get new userland.
FWIW: There is a work in progress to add a build.sh to create a .iso
(from a populated RELEASEDIR), using mkisofs from pkgsrc.
When that's incorporated I would do:
./build.sh -U release sourcesets iso
and burn the CD so I have a bootable recovery CD with the binaries
and source of the system that I'm running. More news once it's in.
