How can I extract some of the folders of a stock FreeBSD install from the ISO without actually installing FreeBSD?
I am trying to build a number of cross-compilers for various major versions of FreeBSD and need to get the
libc and some includes and would like to be able to extract
/usr/lib or rather parts of them ...
Edit: given the first response I feel I have to elaborate a bit. It is trivial to mount an ISO file and I know how to do that on a number of platforms (e.g. on my Linux box:
mount -o loop FreeBSD-7.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso freebsd7/). However, when you mount the installation ISOs for FreeBSD you will notice that they don't contain a folder
usr as can be easily seen from the output of
find -type d -name usr while inside the folder in which the ISO is mounted. Evidently the files are stored away in some format and I need to be able to parse whatever meta-information exists to find what file is the archive that contains the stuff I need to extract and then extract it.
