You need "/usr/src", "/usr/doc" and "/usr/obj" on the target machine.

Then you can do a normal installkernel/installworld/mergemaster usw...


The Buildmachine must be the same ARCH as the targetmachine.
amd&4->i386 Solution: on an am64 do buildkernel/buildworld in am i386 jail.

Both machine clocks must be in sync.

Works fine here for years.


P.S. Complete Build on net4801 takes only 36hours. ;)
