hi all..
I am using below steps to create freebsd image, and i ported on s3c2410 board , but in this there is no root file system,how can i create minimal root file system now, using buildworld i can create root file system but it is of arround 200Mb, it's no use for me :(
currently i installed freebsd 9

Code:
  make kernel-toolchain TARGET=arm
  make buildkernel TARGET=arm KERNCONF=LN2410SBC DESTDIR=/root/kernel installkernel
  mkimage -A arm -O freebsd -T kernel -C none -a 30008000 -e 300080e0 -n "FreeBSD" -d kernel kernel.boot
the last step i am using linux

Are you using src.conf(5)?

Are you selectively installing kernel modules?

You might want to look at NanoBSD. It's i386 only, but the script should give you ideas on how to setup your build, or you could modify it for an Arm build.

A lot can be removed from the build via src.conf, and even more that can be removed before doing installworld. Here's a src.conf that I use:

Code:
WITHOUT_ACCT=			true
WITHOUT_ACPI=			true
WITHOUT_AMD=			true
WITHOUT_APM=			true
WITHOUT_AT=			true
WITHOUT_ATM=			true
WITHOUT_AUDIT=			true
#WITHOUT_BIND=			true
WITHOUT_BIND_DNSSEC=		true
WITHOUT_BIND_ETC=		true
WITHOUT_BIND_MTREE=		true
WITHOUT_BIND_NAMED=		true
WITHOUT_BLUETOOTH=		true
WITHOUT_CALENDAR=		true
WITHOUT_CDDL=			true
WITHOUT_CPP=			true
WITHOUT_CTM=			true
WITHOUT_CVS=			true
WITHOUT_DICT=			true

WITHOUT_IPX=			true
WITHOUT_IPX_SUPPORT=		true
WITHOUT_JAIL=			true
WITHOUT_KERBEROS=		true
WITHOUT_KERBEROS_SUPPORT=	true
WITHOUT_LEGACY_CONSOLE=		true
WITHOUT_LPR=			true
WITHOUT_MAKE=			true
WITHOUT_NCP=			true
WITHOUT_NDIS=			true
WITHOUT_NIS=			true
WITHOUT_OBJC=			true
WITHOUT_PMC=			true
WITHOUT_PORTSNAP=		true
WITHOUT_PROFILE=		true
WITHOUT_QUOTAS=			true
WITHOUT_RCMDS=			true
WITHOUT_RCS=			true
WITHOUT_RESCUE=		true
WITHOUT_ROUTED=		true
WITHOUT_SENDMAIL=		true
WITHOUT_SHAREDOCS=		true
WITHOUT_SYSCONS=		true
WITHOUT_SYSINSTALL=		true
WITHOUT_ZFS=			true
For installworld you can add these to the above:

Code:
WITHOUT_INSTALLLIB=		true
WITHOUT_TOOLCHAIN=		true
That should make your image less than 100MB. On my i386 build it comes to about 64 MB.

If you need it a lot smaller than that things get complicated. Flash is cheap - get more. :)

Just post output in [code] .. output .. [/code] and it'll be much more readable.

It would be helpful to create a larger MFS image to see how much over your limit you are.

You need to create another src.conf for installworld as I suggested in post #7. You can remove more components from installworld, especially TOOLCHAIN and INSTALLLIB.

hi..
In LN2410SBC i have given the size of MD_ROOTSIZE = 15MB, i am getting this error after mounting into board..i created root file system and kernel in one image, i have pasted only error part of the output

I'm not familiar with an LN2410SBC or any Arm hardware for that matter...
