8The Makefile in this directory supports a number of targets for
9building components (or all) of the DragonFly source tree, the most
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
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:
21Also see the build(7) and config(8) man pages.
23Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the
24``buildkernel'' and ``installkernel'' targets, you might need to build
25world before. More information is available in the DragonFly handbook.
27The kernel configuration files reside in the sys/config sub-directory.
28The X86_64_GENERIC is the default x86_64 kernel configuration used in
29release builds. The VKERNEL64 is the default 64 bit vkernel(7) kernel
30configuration file. The file LINT64 contains entries for all possible
31devices, not just those commonly used, and is meant more as a general
32reference than an actual kernel configuration file (a kernel built
33from it wouldn't even run). Also see the config(8) man page.
