Building on FreeBSD


#1

I went to install the prerequisites for building on FreeBSD. I found that u-boot, as directed in the Haiku docs is not available. Has this changed to uboot-mkimage?


#2

u-boot is for ARM development (see pacman or APT). You probably don’t need it.


#3

This was ambiguous under the BSD heading. It’s just included in the list and not specified as ARM centric.


#4

I’m reworking the pre_reqs.md file to reflect updates to FreeBSD regarding building Haiku. FreeBSD has removed gcc, binutils and gmake from the default install. Our docs don’t reflect this or the above u-boot question for FreeBSD. Someone wanting one-liners for FreeBSD is not going to read docs for Linux pacman/apt. I’ve also ran into some other issues building in FreeBSD 12.


#5

Help keeping the FreeBSD instructions up to date is welcome. I think none of the currently active devs are using it, so the documentation of course gets out of date.
