how to create a disk image? (shark; disklabel + / + swap)
I want to make a disk image that I can dd(1) to my shark,
but I'm not really sure how to assemble it.
What I know is
- how to do a build, giving me kernels, executables and libs (etc.)
- how to use makefs, to create a file system image from a directory of files
- how to use disklabel to add a BSD disklabel and partitioning to an
- how to use installboot, to add a bootloader to a disk/file system image
(not applicable for the shark port, but still).
What I'm lacking is how I assemble all this (disk label, / file system,
swap space) into a disk image.
Is there some easy way to automate this (e.g. size calculations for the
disklabel/partitions)? Or is it all manual fiddling?
I'm at a bit of a loss here... please help! :->
