I want to rebuild all my home computers now based upon FreeBSD 10.x.
I would like to use version 11.0 Stable or Release.
Here is the steps I am going to take....
Yes you can suggest that I have this totally borked.
My wife tells me I am only expert at making a mess!
The present layout of the computer I am going to install first:
1 SSD with windows and FreeBSD 10.3
This will change to just win7 and the boot loader, so that
FreeBSD will only be on a ZFS raid Z array.
Will this still be able to boot?
Will I need to change the boot loader already installed? I am
using the FreeBSD 10.x boot loader that shows you F1, F2 and F3
F1 windows 7, F2 windows data and F3 FreeBSD 10.0
1 Hard drive that has Windows data partition and FreeBSD partition (
which contains /usr/home and /usr/ports etc)
This hard drive will be removed when this all works.
1 DVD drive that is coming out ( don't use it any more )
OK look out, here it goes......
- Install 4 1TB hard drives for ZFS raid Z array.
- Load FreeBSD ( current USB image ) from USB using ZFS.
Will the installer do this or do I need to tweak it?
Will my present 10.3 version still function while I am setting
I will have win7 on the first primary drive an SSD and then
remove the second drive after I get this going.
I want to create filesystems on the Raid Z array like /usr/home
/usr/ports /usr/ports/packages etc.
You can suggest any other filesystems if it will be helpful.
- svnlite co
Need the URL so I can fetch 11-Current or 11-Release
- build world
Yep I got this (well maybe see below)
- build kernel
Yep I got this too ;)
Have not been successful getting version 1 to function, crashes
the old version works. Pointers any one?
- build other things
Opera - should not be an issue
Thunderbird - should not be an issue
FireFox - should not be an issue
Keepassx - should not be an issue
- build local repository
Wow, I got this too, well maybe the only step I can do ;) no
help needed for this step
Now let me throw a monkey wrench and hammer into this.....
Can I use clang and LLVM? Ditching ld?
If so I will need advice on how to do this.
As always.....Thanks for your review and help
