Re: Running into unknown user errors while building -current for the Rasberry Pi

Hi Brian,
Can you provide the snippet of the log from a build with -N 2 that shows the command line for nbmakefs? If you have trouble coming up with a log small enough for you to feel comfortable cross-posting, feel free to email it to me directly, or use something like pastebin.

nbmakefs should have an option passed to it “-F mtree-specfile” that which will be “the specification” that the error message is referring to, and looking at line 7774 should give some clue about what might have gone wrong.

It would be interesting to see if an unprivileged build (with -U and not as root) exhibits the same error.
