Also ran into a problem using the method you described of make
doing that failed to install quite a few files. /etc/ is almost
completely unpopulated. Doesn't even know who root is!
(from inside the jail)
# ls etc/
X11 fstab mail ntp ppp
bluetooth gnats mtree pam.d
rc.conf resolv.conf ssl
defaults isdn namedb periodic
(rc.conf and resolv.conf are edits i made following the man page)
My exact sequences were as follows...
>From silvani (the host) (codecastle.com is my private internal network)
I ran /bin/sh (since no offense but I can't stand csh)
# cd /usr/src
# cvsup -g -L 2 /usr/sup/current-supfile
# mkdir -p $D
# ls -alh /usr/local/LOCKBOX/virtual-tree/development/
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 512B Oct 3 13:47 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 512B Sep 30 00:19 ..
drwxrwxr-x 2 root operator 512B Oct 3 00:28 .snap
drwxr-xr-x 16 root wheel 512B Oct 3 13:47 desktop.codecastle.com
drwxr-xr-x 16 root wheel 512B Oct 3 13:41 devel.codecastle.com
# make buildworld
# make installworld DESTDIR=$D
# jail /usr/local/LOCKBOX/virtual-tree/development/devel.codecastle.com
# touch /etc/fstab
# echo 'nameserver 188.8.131.52' >> /etc/resolv.conf
# echo 'nameserver 184.108.40.206' >> /etc/resolv.conf
[Then i hand edited /etc/rc.conf to add the appropriate entries as
shown in the man page for jail]
Then I did this...
# passwd root
passwd: root: no such user
Which prompted me to check the /etc dir for passwd and master.passwd.
As the above ls showed there were a truckload of files missing just in
the /etc/ dir itself.
