cvsup difficulty

Post by Ken » Mon, 01 Mar 1999 04:00:00



Hello,

I'm trying cvsup / make world for the first time.

I'm running FreeBSD 3.0-Release that was installed from the Cheapbytes
CD.

First I've learned that I should have installed the sources from the CD
before using cvsup (takes a long time to d/l all those files).

But when it got done all the Makefiles and some of the other files have
a ",v" appended to their names.  I've been told that this is a common
cvs thing, but its seems to have thrown off the make command, as it
replies that it doesn't know how to find the target "world" or
"buildworld"

I'm not sure I want to start removing the ,v and running especially
since some of the files, in particular the TODO-2.1,v file, all seem to
have a lot of referrences to old versions.

TIA

KR

You have downloaded the complete CVS repository, that is, all versions
of FreeBSD and the history of their development. Since you have been
running 3.0, you now probably want to checkout the 3.1-STABLE version
and build it. Use the environment variable CVSROOT to point to the
directory where your downloaded version files are located, cd to
/usr/src and get the 3.1 stable branch with the command

   CVSROOT=/my/cvs/repository cvs checkout -r RELENG_3

If your system is already using ELF, use `make world',
otherwise use `make upgrade'.

And don't forget to build a new kernel:

  cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
  config MYKERNEL
  cd ../../compiler/MYKERNEL
  make depend && make all install

You don't want to remove any of the ,v files...

1. CVSUP QUESTION - where are the /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ files in 4.6-RELEASE?

Hey,
I've installed 4.6-RELEASE, and:
pkg_add -r cvsup

The problem: no template files in:
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/

I have also deleted the file and tried to install from the cd, but no
success.

I saw a previous guy posting the same question and getting an answer like
look in:
/usr/src../examples/ and "make install" from there??? I don't understand
that!

Thanks
Didier
