[haiku-development] Re: Best UserBuildConfig partition settings

Hi,

Hello, I've come across two was of setting the partition to build Haiku on (in UserBuilConfig). I'm currently working on writing help for installation procedures, and I was wondering if both methods are considered equivalent (O.K.) while setting up your UserBuildConfig.

Either this:

HAIKU_IMAGE_NAME        = sda6 ;
HAIKU_IMAGE_DIR         = /dev ;

Or:

DefineBuildProfile disk : disk : "/dev/sda7" ;

switch $(HAIKU_BUILD_PROFILE) {
    case "disk" : {
        HAIKU_ADD_ALL_OPTIONAL_PACKAGES = 1 ;
    }
}

You would then sudo jam -q @disk when building...

Are both of these equivalent?

Yes, but the profiles are more powerful, because you can define multiple different ones. For example, I have different profiles for different emulators, different profiles for USB-stick and harddrive partition, and different profiles depending on how fast I want the result (ie bare bones or full featured).

Best regards,
