mfsBSD building instructions
Copyright (c) 2018 Martin Matuska
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.
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
You may create three types of output: disc image for use by dd(1), ISO image or a simple .tar.gz file
- disc image
make BASE=/cdrom/usr/freebsd-dist make BASE=/cdrom/10.2-RELEASE make CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=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
- .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
- roothack edition:
make iso CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1 ROOTHACK=1
- special edition (with FreeBSD distribution):
make iso BASE=/cdrom/11.0-RELEASE RELEASE=11.0-RELEASE ARCH=amd64
- GCE-compatible .tar.gz file:
make gce BASE=/cdrom/11.0-RELEASE make gce CUSTOM=1 BUILDWORLD=1 BUILDKERNEL=1
