How to create pfSense development environment?
I am trying to create pfSense development environment.
Can any one help me?
Thanks in advanse!
I want to compile Source code given on bellow link.
But I don't know how to compile these code. I am not able to find any document related to this.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Is it necessary to create ISO.. for creating development environment ? I mean why we need ISO. can't we just install freeBSD and necessary source packages for pfSense and directly execute/run?
You can't just build it and run it on a builder system. You have to make install media and then install it on a target system.
So if I want to modify/add/change some code then, I have to do it on that machine where I have installed pfSense?
Am i right ? if wrong then please correct me…
It depends on what kind of code you want to add/change, and how you want to change it.
If it's php/script code you can change it "live" on the box once it's installed, or you can edit it in the local copy of the repo on the builder before making the image.
If it's a binary change, something that needs recompiled, etc, then you'd fix that up on the builder and include it in the build or copy it to the installed firewall after the fact.
Thank you so much.. :)
It would be really helpful to me..
