Building haikuos adding devel packages like gcc + git

you can ad your custom build config the devel packages in cases you want to compile inside the image

create the file

build/jam/UserBuildConfig

the devel packages (jam seems to be very sensitive to space and ";" at the end )

AddOptionalHaikuImagePackages Development ;
AddOptionalHaikuImagePackages Git ;
AddOptionalHaikuImagePackages DevelopmentBase ;
AddOptionalHaikuImagePackages DevelopmentMin ;

a good idea if you build the anyboot image is to increase the image size from 100 default to 400
HAIKU_IMAGE_SIZE        = 400 ;

then you can build the image with the simple

jam -q
Next is howto figure it out how to make it install on /dev/sda from the jam file (auto install on partition) it said it installed but it couldn't boot yet

To save some typing, you can use this form in your UserBuildConfig, if you want:

AddOptionalHaikuImagePackages
Development
Git
DevelopmentBase
DevelopmentMin
;
