b515e798 7building components (or all) of the DragonFly source tree, the most

SW
8commonly used being ``buildworld'' and ``installworld'', which rebuild
9and install everything in the DragonFly system from the source tree
10except the kernel, the kernel-modules and the contents of /etc. The
984263bc
MD
11``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets build and install
12the kernel and the modules (see below). Please see the top of
13the Makefile in this directory for more information on the
14standard build targets and compile-time flags.

16Building a kernel is a somewhat involved process. Documentation

21Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the
22``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets, you might need to build
587429e4 23world before. More information is available in the DragonFly handbook.

23e12d00 25The sample kernel configuration files reside in the sys/config
984263bc
MD
26sub-directory (assuming that you've installed the kernel sources), the
27file named GENERIC being the one used to build your initial installation
28kernel. The file LINT contains entries for all possible devices, not
29just those commonly used, and is meant more as a general reference
30than an actual kernel configuration file (a kernel built from it
31wouldn't even run).
