NetBSD update src manually HOW-TO

Page history last edited by trunasuci 10 years, 8 months ago

 

 

Most of us is using BSD and some of them is using NetBSD. Here i share with u guide how to update the sources of your system/box to latest patch

 

u must have:

 

1- Working NetBSD box, mine is 5.0.2

2- Networked

3- Internet of course

4- Know about cvs, how to update the existing src, know about branch tag etc anyway u can refer to my page: Using CVSUP or CSUP to update ports in FreeBSD

 

Firstly i prefer for u to download all the sources tar.gz required from this link via ftp:

ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-release-5-0/tar_files/src/

 

anyway i can use cvsup to checkout/fetch the sources and updates it on the same time, but it'll take one hell of a long time!!! so by downloading the tar.gz files, uncompress it, and later updates to the latest patch, it saves lots of time. Besides that, i also can save this tarballs for future use. Let's begin..

 

ftp> ls *.tar.gz

after finish download all tar.gz files, extract it to /usr folder. Fos csh shell user, u can use this techniques:

 

 

$ foreach file (*.tar.gz)
?   tar -xzf $file -C /usr
? end

 

 

then after all files is already extracted to /usr, u now can update it tp the latest cvs update. Mine is using cvsup and branch tag netbsd-5-0.Anyone who like to updates to -STABLE branch, u can use netbsd-5 tag  

 

# cvsup -g -L 2 ./supfile-cvsup.jp.netbsd.org -p 4500

So now your sources is current and updated, u now can proceed to compile and install it. The guide for do this u can refer to:

http://www.netbsd.org/docs/updating.html

 

just u need to skip the download and update parts, because we already done it. And just start from 

Building the tools

section until finish

 

thats all folks!!!
