Building ReactOS 6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The topics that will be covered in this hands-on session are:

 

  1. Invoking a build Command

  1. make bootcd

  2. make livecd

 

 

make bootcd

 

This command works like make, but also generates a bootable ReactOS ISO file (ReactOS.iso) in the base of the working copy. It is wise to tag your Boot-CDs with the revision they were built from if you need to keep many ReactOS ISOs. To try this command, issues make bootcd at the RosBE command prompt.

After the process was completed successfully, the boot cd ISO file should be generated on the working reactos root folder. Then, the ISO is ready to be burnt on CD/DVD for installation.

Next, issue the clean all command to clean up all the generated output including the log file.

make livecd

 

This command generates ReactOS-LiveCD.iso in the base of the working copy. This is the ReactOS Live-CD that runs completely from the CD-ROM. To try this command, issue the make livecd command at the RosBE command prompt as shown in the following screenshot.

After the process was completed successfully, the live CD should be generated on the reactos root folder as shown in the following screenshot. The ISO is ready to be burnt on CD/DVD for live CD.

Then, issue clean all command if needed.
