Problem with releasing docs

Postby boris_slezak » 28 Mar 2011, 18:27

Hello,

I have been trying to create the FreeBSD installation CD with the following commands:

Code: Select all
cd /usr/src/release
make \
   BUILDNAME=8.2-RELEASE \
   CHROOTDIR=/var/chroot/freebsd/i386 \
   CVSROOT=/var/cvsroot \
   NOPORTS=YES \
   RELEASETAG=RELENG_8_2 \
   TARGET=i386 \
   TARGET_ARCH=i386 \
   release

Everything runs fine except for one thing. For some reason, FreeBSD documents are not packaged and included in the release. I am referring to [FILE]en-freebsd-doc-20110110.tbz[/FILE] and other packages found in [FILE]/packages/docs[/FILE] directory of the official installation ISO image that I downloaded from ftp.freebsd.org.

What am I missing or doing wrong? Perhaps this has got something to do with [FILE]/usr/doc/release/Makefile[/FILE], but I have not figured it out yet and I am running out of time.

Please advise. Your help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Boris

I think I figured it out. The packages come from [FILE]/usr/ports/misc/freebsd-doc*[/FILE] and are not built with [FILE]doc/release/Makefile[/FILE].
