b515e798 9building components (or all) of the DragonFly source tree, the most
587429e4
SW
10commonly used being ``buildworld'' and ``installworld'', which rebuild
11and install everything in the DragonFly system from the source tree
12except the kernel, the kernel-modules and the contents of /etc. The
984263bc
MD
13``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets build and install
14the kernel and the modules (see below). Please see the top of
15the Makefile in this directory for more information on the
16standard build targets and compile-time flags.

18Building a kernel is a somewhat involved process. Documentation
19for it can be found at:

23Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the
24``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets, you might need to build
587429e4 25world before. More information is available in the DragonFly handbook.

23e12d00 27The sample kernel configuration files reside in the sys/config
984263bc
MD
28sub-directory (assuming that you've installed the kernel sources), the
29file named GENERIC being the one used to build your initial installation
30kernel. The file LINT contains entries for all possible devices, not
31just those commonly used, and is meant more as a general reference
32than an actual kernel configuration file (a kernel built from it
33wouldn't even run).
