Short Answer: No, but it might be good enough for what you need Traditionally routers were built with a tightly coupled data plane and control plane. Back in the 85s.
Building and Installing a Custom Kernel
It does assume a network connection. If you don't have one on your MINIX machine, perform the git steps elsewhere, copy the 'src' hierarchy to /usr/src on your MINIX machine, and follow the steps from there, as normal.
FreeBSD 10, Converting from RELEASE to STABLE
The symlink /usr/src/linux should always point to the directory that holds the sources of the kernel which currently runs. This can be done in one of three ways:
The src directory currently needs about 6555 MB disk space and the xsrc directory currently needs about 579 MB of disk space. Now check out the current sources, like this:
If your computer fails to boot the new kernel, you can always select 'Boot DragonFly using ' in the loader menu, so that the old kernel is loaded instead of the new one.
If all goes well, your new system will come up normally. If something goes so wrong that you can't boot, you can boot your previous image manually using the boot monitor menu: all the system images stored in subdirectories of /boot/minix are given a separate entry in the menu, as well as the system used when installing for the first time whcih is stored under /boot/minix_default. You can also proceed manually: select the option to Drop to boot prompt and then issue the following commands:
In this example We are building as a user (non-root): -U We are building the X66R6 sources (Xservers, this is XFree not Xorg): -x We are using separate directories: -T, -D, -R, -O, -X We are removing contents of tooldir and destdir before building: -r We are using -j7 because we have a multiprocessor system
The easiest way is to execute make build. It will rebuild and install the operating system, as well as all the utilities.
Sometimes, it might be necessary to update a locally-managed /etc file, like for example to add a new user to /etc/. There is no automated procedure for that, though. Compare the files in “/usr/src/etc” and “/etc”, and see if any updates have happened. This kind of things are typically commented in src/docs/UPDATING.
I already am on FreeBSD 65, but this box is updated from 8 to 9 to 65, so maybe that didn't work out quite well. Installing unbound via pkg did work:
