Description ota 2021-02-20 19:33:13 UTC
I had built world/kernel on 13-BETA releases.  After install, I had incrementally run build world and kernel.

Then, I detached a USB disk with /usr/src /usr/obj and connected to 12.2-RELEASE and run make installkernel.

The 12.2-RELEASE fails to find a library for boot-strapping "make".

$ make installkernel -C /usr/src

I wonder if bmake can be statically linked so that install can be run on different and older systems.
Comment 2 Mark Millard 2021-02-22 07:44:41 UTC
Trying to run 13-BETA code (even installer material) on a system
that is running a 12.2-RELEASE kernel is not supported in general
as I understand: 12 does not support 13. Far more could be wrong
than just what static linking could cover.

One gnerally needs to get a 13 kernel in place and in operation
before running other 13 code on that system, as I understand.
