Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at
dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now.
Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related.
I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress
(and you can read about that here).
Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the
new FreeBSD Diary website.
compiling a kernel on another machine19 March 1999
Why would you want to compile a kernel on one machine and copy it to another?
Well, perhaps the machine in question has very little disk space and can't take the
sources. Or it's a slow box, and it would take hours to compile a kernel. In
my case, it's the space. I had just installed the system on a
Windows 95 machine, and there wasn't much space. So I used another machine.
