11The Makefile in this directory supports a number of targets for
12building components (or all) of the FreeBSD source tree, the most
13commonly used one being ``world'', which rebuilds and installs
14everything in the FreeBSD system from the source tree except the
15kernel, the kernel-modules and the contents of /etc. The
16``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets build and install
17the kernel and the modules (see below). Please see the top of
18the Makefile in this directory for more information on the
19standard build targets and compile-time flags.
20
21Building a kernel is a somewhat more involved process, documentation
22for which can be found at:
23 http://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html
24And in the config(8) man page.
25Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the
26``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets, you might need to build
27world before. More information is available in the handbook.
28
29The sample kernel configuration files reside in the sys/<arch>/conf
30sub-directory (assuming that you've installed the kernel sources), the
31file named GENERIC being the one used to build your initial installation
32kernel. The file LINT contains entries for all possible devices, not
33just those commonly used, and is meant more as a general reference
34than an actual kernel configuration file (a kernel built from it
35wouldn't even run).
