mfsBSD building instructions

Copyright (c) 2019 Martin Matuska

Configuration

Read hints in the sample configuration files in the conf/ directory, copy these files to files without .sample ending and make modifications to suit your needs.

The default root password is "mfsroot". You can pick a difrerent password with the ROOTPW or ROOTPW_HASH make variables.

Additional packages and files

If you want any packages installed, copy the .tbz files that should be automatically installed into the packages/ directory.

Add any additional files into the customfiles/ directory. These will be copied recursively into the root of the boot image.

WARNING: Your image should not exceed MFSROOT_MAXSIZE in total. Please adjust the variable for larger images.

Distribution or custom world and kernel

You may choose to build from a FreeBSD distribution (e.g. CDROM), or by using make buildworld / buildkernel from your own world and kernel configuration.

To use a distribution (e.g. FreeBSD cdrom), you need access to it (e.g. a mounted FreeBSD ISO via mdconfig) and use BASE=/path/to/distribution

To use your own but already built world and kernel, use CUSTOM=1 If you want this script to do make buildworld and make buildkernel for you, use BUILDWORLD=1 and BUILDKERNEL=1

Creating images

You may create three types of output: disc image for use by dd(1), ISO image or a simple .tar.gz file

##Examples

  1. disc image
make BASE=/cdrom/usr/freebsd-dist
make BASE=/cdrom/10.2-RELEASE
make CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1
  1. bootable ISO file:
make iso BASE=/cdrom/usr/freebsd-dist
make iso BASE=/cdrom/10.2-RELEASE
make iso CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1
  1. .tar.gz file:
make tar BASE=/cdrom/usr/freebsd-dist
make tar BASE=/cdrom/10.2-RELEASE
make tar CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1
  1. roothack edition:
make iso CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1 ROOTHACK=1
  1. special edition (with FreeBSD distribution):
make iso BASE=/cdrom/11.0-RELEASE RELEASE=11.0-RELEASE ARCH=amd64
  1. GCE-compatible .tar.gz file:
make gce BASE=/cdrom/11.0-RELEASE
make gce CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1
