  1. I saw in the manual that to compile the kernel without blobs (non-free drivers) it was just to add the WITHOUT_SOURCELESS line to /etc/src.conf and then just recompile and install the kernel ( cd /usr/src && make buildkernel && make installkernel) , but the /etc/src.conf file did not exist, of course I can create it, but in the manual it says that this configuration file is a symbolic link to some file in /usr/src so I need to use the ln command? what file would that be in the source code? or do i just need to create the file and add this line?
  2. for me to create an iso of my current complete system, I just need to run the command: ( cd /usr/src/release/ && cdrom test.iso)?
