mfsBSD building instructions
Copyright (c) 2019 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.
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
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
