Building the memstick and ISO of HardenedBSD
This article documents how to build USB boot media (memstick.img) and ISO files for HardenedBSD. Please note that you will also get the sources and the kernel in compressed archives. This is useful for developers who want to test their modifications or system administrators who want to customize this files.
For users, know that there are already nightly build available at this address.
These are the requirements for our setup:
- devel/git (or devel/git-lite)
- the src tree checked out to /usr/src.
Base System Source
If you don't have a src tree, you will need to get it. In this example, we choose the 13-stable version with a 10 commit history (to avoid unnecessary downloads):
git clone --depth 10 --single-branch --branch hardened/13-stable/master https://git.hardenedbsd.org/hardenedbsd/HardenedBSD.git /usr/src
Compile the base and the kernel:
cd /usr/src make -sj`sysctl -n hw.ncpu` buildworld buildkernel
Build startup media (memstick and ISO):
cd /usr/src/release make real-release NOSRC=1 NOPORTS=1
You'll find the resulting images in:
