This is the top level of the DragonFly source directory. This file was last revised on: $FreeBSD: src/README,v 184.108.40.206 2002/04/26 16:01:35 bmah Exp $ $DragonFly: src/README,v 1.9 2008/01/27 09:08:39 nth Exp $ For copyright information, please see the file COPYRIGHT in this directory (additional copyright information also exists for some sources in this tree - please see the specific source directories for more information). The Makefile in this directory supports a number of targets for building components (or all) of the DragonFly source tree, the most commonly used being ``buildworld'' and ``installworld'', which rebuild and install everything in the DragonFly system from the source tree except the kernel, the kernel-modules and the contents of /etc. The ``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets build and install the kernel and the modules (see below). Please see the top of the Makefile in this directory for more information on the standard build targets and compile-time flags. Building a kernel is a somewhat involved process. Documentation for it can be found at: http://wiki.dragonflybsd.org/index.cgi/kernelconfig.html Also see the the build(7) and config(8) man pages. Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the ``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets, you might need to build world before. More information is available in the DragonFly handbook. The sample kernel configuration files reside in the sys/config sub-directory (assuming that you've installed the kernel sources), the file named GENERIC being the one used to build your initial installation kernel. The file LINT contains entries for all possible devices, not just those commonly used, and is meant more as a general reference than an actual kernel configuration file (a kernel built from it wouldn't even run).
