It's meant for proper tftp/network booting and stuff like that. Whatever you need to run the binaries is up to you and depends on your environment. Installing them to /$objtype/ is the best the system can do for you and intended behavior. > > /sys/src/9/mkfile contains the procedures to create all binaries for all platforms currently supported. At least, as far as I can see. I usually just install pc64 (and my own wip port to pinephone) from their directories manually. Again, install only to /$objtype/, and install to 9fat or sdcard manually. > > sirjofri
