How to make a new stage file

Minimal Hardware Requirements

You must have 256MB of memory and 256MB of swap per CPU core.

Example: 4 core CPU , need 1024MB memory and swap.

Diskspace is required 30GB for /

Build new stages

I have created a new script. Please run it on Gentoo/FreeBSD.


wget -O ~/stages_builder.sh \
"http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=proj/gentoo-bsd.git;a=blob_plain;f=scripts/mkstages/stages_builder.sh;hb=HEAD"
bash ~/stages_builder.sh

If you can make x86-fbsd stages as well if you're using amd64-fbsd.


bash ~/stages_builder.sh x86

Please send me the log you have found any problem. The log can be created in the following ways.


bash stages_builder.sh &> ~/amd64-fbsd-9.1.log

Create an environment that I use usually...


MKSRC=NONE WORKDATE="remote" STABLE=1 bash stages_builder.sh &> ~/amd64-fbsd-9.1.log

How much time does it take

Hardware

CPU
Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.40GHz)
Memory
