:Is there documentation to transfer a custom built kernel
:from a (fast) compile machine to a target machine without
:running 'make installkernel' on the compile machine?
:Just transferring the intermediate files and then running
:the installkernel on the target machine? Thanks.
What I would do is 'make installkernel DESTDIR=somewhere', and
then copy that somewhere to the slow machine.
It might be possible to mount the fast's machines /usr/obj onto the
slow machine and then make installkernel on the slow machine, but I
haven't tried doing that in a while. The /usr/src and /usr/obj paths
have to match exactly between the slow and fast boxes for it to work.
