Dear documentation team
as opposed to the process meantioned here:
it is not sufficious to have the kernel sources to build a kernel with
# cd /usr/src
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
This results in the message
# make: don't know how to make buildkernel. Stop
The reason is that the Makefile in /usr/src is missing when getting the kernel
sources via sysinstall.
Tested with 6.2 release.
Even if it is a bug I think that as long as it is this way it should be
reflected in the handbook.
Thank you for your great work!
