Does build.sh dump things into /usr/obj/ ?
In about an hour or so (whenever I get home), I'll start setting up a
new NetBSD system. :-)
I'm one of these people who came from FreeBSD and need to adapt to the
differences between these two operating systems. One thing I haven't
found out yet is if the system build has the same source and target.
Meaning this: In FreeBSD, when building everything, the sources are read
from /usr/src and the resultung binaries are dumped into /usr/obj,
installing is a seperate step.
I have found that you can get a real boost in speed doing that, if you
follow the suggestion of the FreeBSD handbook and put these two file
systems onto seperate physical drives - especially if the HDs in use
aren't really new ones. :-) Does NetBSD do this too?
I know that you can *change* the destination directory for the builds
(as written in 30.7.1 of the guide) but what is the *default*? It would
be could to know this before I start installing as then I can partition
the drives with a sense of meaning. :-)
Sorry about asking this rather trivial question. I just couldn't find
the answer (although I know it must be there somewhere) and I'd like to
get this done. This system has been down for long enough...
