 This file is intended to be a brief introduction to the build  This file (UPDATING) is intended to be a brief reference to recent
 process and a reference on what to do if something doesn't work.  changes that might cause problems in the build process, and a guide for
   what to do if something doesn't work.
   For a more detailed description of the recommended way to build NetBSD
   using build.sh, see the BUILDING file.
   Note that much of the advice in this UPDATING file was written before
   build.sh existed.  Nevertheless, the advice here may be useful for
   working around specific problems with build.sh.

 20040516:  20080126:
         The end-user modifiable X11 configuration has been moved          The posix_fadvise system call has been changed from an assembly
         from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/<dir> to /etc/X11/<dir>.          stub, to a c file that calls an assembly stub. You need to
         Ensure that src and xsrc is up to date, and run          'rm -f posix_fadvise.* .depend' in the libc build directory to
         "make cleandir" in src/x11 before your next build.          avoid using the old assembly stub.
 20040426:  20071209:
         Support for the original dynamic sysctl node structure has          The acpiec(4) driver has been split into two attachments. If you
         been removed in favor of the newer layout.  This affects          get ACPI errors before the attachment, please update your kernel
         consumers of the create and delete interface, as well as          configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
         the dynamic discovery mechanism.  This is believed only to  
         be the sysctl(8) binary itself, at this point in time, so  20071115:
         the only effect of this should be that a sysctl binary          The it(4) driver has been renamed to itesio(4) and the old port
         built from sources dated between 2003/12/04 and 2004/03/24          argument specified in the kernel configuration file is not valid
         will not work on a kernel built from sources dated after          anymore. The itesio(4) driver now uses the Super I/O address port
         2004/04/25.  If you need a new sysctl binary but build.sh          rather than the EC address port. Please update your kernel
         does not work, make sure that your revision of          configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
         src/sys/sys/sysctl.h is 1.112 (or later), and then the  
         do the following:  20071028:
           The pccons(4) driver has been removed from the NetBSD/shark port.
         cd /usr/src (or wherever your source tree is)          You need to update any custom kernel configuration file you have
         make USETOOLS=no includes          to remove any references to pccons (which includes removing the
         cd lib/libc          now useless XSERVER option) and replace them with the correct
         make USETOOLS=no dependall install          entries for the wscons driver.  See the GENERIC configuration file
         cd ../../sbin/sysctl          for more details.
         make USETOOLS=no dependall install  
 20040425:          A latent bug in dhclient/dhcpd that caused it to be unable to
         The ffs superblock issues listed below under 20040109 and 20030402          enumerate interfaces was fixed.  The bug began to cause
         are now automatically addressed by the /etc/rc.d/fixsb script or by          problems after 20070911 when the kernel's SIOCGIFCONF
         sysinst when it checks a a filesystem. The manual fsck_ffs -b16 -c4          implementation was repaired.  From 20070529 to 20070911 racoon
         invocation mentioned below will continue to work and is now          could not enumerate interfaces.  (These are noted because
         automated by those scripts.  Note that under certain circumstances,          normal kernel/userspace version matching hygiene is not
         affected filesystems upgraded to a -current kernel first before          sufficient to avoid this problem.)  Ensure that both kernel
         upgrading their userland with the fixsb and fsck_ffs fixes may          and userland are from after 20070913.
         encounter a 'freeing free inode' panic when writing to the affected  
         filesystem, so it is a good idea to repair the filesystem as soon as  20070703:
         possible.  For more details on the fixsb script, see pr install/25138.          nbinstall has been renamed as it calls the target specific and
           the logic to pass down STRIP from mk been removed.  This forces
 20040418:          a re-installation of tools.
         statfs(2) and friends have been replaced with statvfs(2). Before  
         installing a newly build userland make sure that you are running  20070422:
         a newly built kernel with COMPAT_20 set. In addition your libc          The way OS emulations lookup filenames inside the emulation root
         build might not work (undefined SYS_statfs symbol) because make          has been changed.  Rather than modify the pathname (and copy back
         clean does not know how to remove files it does not know about          to userspace) namei() and lookup() directly check the emulation
         anymore. Manually remove all generated .S sources and objects          root. One side effect is that absolute symlinks inside the emulated
         from the libc build directory.          root file system will be relative to that file system - unless they
           start /../ this is useful when the emulated root is a real install
 20040326:          that has such links.
         The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386 kernel builds          This might affect symlinks that have been added to reference outside
         has been changed. The file is now stored as a uuencoded file in CVS          the emulated root.
         and the generated Makefile will use the new .uue rules from bsd.file.mk  
         to build it.  20070412:
           The pckbc driver on sgimips IP32 has been removed. Use macekbc
         This means you must have the latest bsd.files.mk installed when          instead. See the GENERIC32_IP3x kernel configuration for an
         building a kernel without USETOOLS=yes.          example.
 20040318:  20070319:
         A bug in the cgd(4) blowfish code was corrected, without          src/lib/libc/Makefile revision 1.129 broke libc and ld.elf_so
         provision of backwards compatibility, after several public          on many platforms due to incorrect flags settings.  If you
         notices over several months. Users of cgd with blowfish cipher          updated and built after about 20070315, do "nbmake-$arch
         ONLY must dump their data before updating their kernels, and          cleandir" in src/lib/libc and src/libexec/ld.elf_so to force a
         recreate cgd's and restore data using the new kernel. See          rebuild of object files that might have been built
         (recent message to current-users, URL when mail-index has updated)          incorrectly, and ensure that you have at least
           src/lib/libc/Makefile 1.130.
         On acorn32, the opms and qms drivers have been withdrawn, and  20070210:
         the old wsqms driver is now called qms.  Kernel config files          src/sys/sys/{sa.h,savar.h} were removed.
         will need updating.  See the ones in sys/arch/acorn32/conf            find ${OBJDIR} \( -name .depend -o -name '*.d' \) -print \
         for examples.                | xargs egrep -l '/sa.h|/savar.h' | xargs rm
           will allow dependencies on those files to get get rebuilt
         On acorn32, the beep and sysbeep devices are no longer  20070209:
         needed, and will need to be deleted from kernel configuration          The threading model was changed when the newlock2 branch
         files.          was merged to NetBSD-current.  If you boot with a new
           kernel (version 4.99.10), then you also need a new pthread
 20040109:          library (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.7).  If you boot with
         Compatibility for old ffs superblock layouts has been          an old kernel, then you need the old pthread library
         added, and the restrictive fsck checks have been reenabled          (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.6).  Provided you keep the kernel and
         when using those layouts.  If you have been using -current          the pthread library in sync, old threaded applications should
         since 20030402, you may find that fsck again signals fatal          continue to work with an old or new kernel.  Note that named(8)
         superblock mismatches.  To repair, make sure you have          is the only threaded application in the base system.
         an updated fsck_ffs and then you can use fsck_ffs -b 16 -c 4  
         to complete the filesystem upgrade.  A message has  20061214:
         been added to the kernel which should detect this problem.          Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
         See the following discussion for more information:          from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds
         http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/current-users/2004/01/11/0022.html          will need to do a "make cleandir" in
                   tools/mtree/, tools/makefs/, tools/binstall/, tools/pax/,
 20031203:                  bin/pax/, bin/ls/, usr.sbin/mtree/, usr.sbin/makefs/,
         New binutils builds may fail due to old dependencies.                  usr.bin/xinstall/, libexec/ftpd/, rescue/, as well
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that                  as the installation images in distrib/
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.          in order to excise stale references to the old stat_flags.h header
           file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
         A newer mkdep is needed.  Error noting that is  20061108:
                 cc: Ambiguous abbreviation --          The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
           changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
 20031008:          does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
         /usr/include/sys/disklabel_mbr.h was removed.          make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that  
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.  20061009:
           The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
 20031007:          available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
         A sign exension bug was fixed which set all the high bits  
         of our newly expanded ffs fs_flags.  This should only  20060814:
         affect users who installed or upgraded in September of 2003.          The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been

         should fix this problem, and a warning message was added          kernel configuration for an example.  X servers from the last
         to the kernel which should discover and warn about it.  See          few years should cope.
 20030906:          MPACPI is no more. We always configure PCI interrupts using ACPI
         With the addition of siginfo support the old signal trampoline          if we have an ACPI kernel. The option MPACPI_SCANPCI has been renamed
         code has been deprecated to COMPAT_16. Make sure that your running          to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
         kernel has COMPAT_16 enabled before building userland.  
 20030801:          socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
         With the new openssl, there is some header and library shuffling.          For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
         rm -f /usr/include/des.h /usr/include/kerberosIV/* /lib/libdes* \          your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
         /usr/lib/libdes* before building.          errors will result.
         Texinfo was updated to 4.6.  To avoid failures when trying to  
         build the included texinfo files, do:  
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo  
         make MKINFO=no dependall install  
         Groff was updated to 1.19; it's probably necessary to do  
                 cd share/mk && make install  
                 cd src/gnu/usr.bin/groff  
                 make MKMAN=no dependall install  
         Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines  
         were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when  
         mountd got restarted because it freed memory that had already  
         been freed. This has been fixed and the kernel checks  
         export addresses very strictly. If you upgrade your kernel,  
         make sure you also upgrade mountd, because if your export  
         file contains lines with an old inet4 address syntax (i.e.  
         a.b.c or a.b or a), they will get rejected by the new kernel.  
         The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6  
         fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch  
         with the first alternate, because they compare too many  
         fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade  
         your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.  
         None of this signals actual filesystem damage.  
         sendmail version 8.12.8 was imported.  Since sendmail is  
         now setgid to the smmsp group, and runs in "collection"  
         mode for most common activities, there is a new config  
         file called submit.cf that needs to live in /etc/mail.  
         The generic submit.cf sample in /usr/share/sendmail/cf  
         is named netbsd-msp.cf.  Upgrading your regular sendmail  
         configuration file is also strongly advised.  
         See the section named "MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in  
         the updated /usr/share/sendmail/README file for more  
         Texinfo was updated to 4.3.  To avoid failures when trying to  
         build the included texinfo files, do:  
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo  
         make MKINFO=no dependall install  
         The METALOG format changed slightly, to remove the leading  
         "${DESTDIR}" from path names.  
         This only affects people building with UNPRIVED.  
         For complete safety, remove the DESTDIR entirely and  
         update tools/mtree, before running make build.  
         CVS repository layout was changed.  See the following for details  
         if you are using (anonymous) cvs to update your tree.  
         install(1) had a '-N dbdir' option added, to specify an  
         alternate location to look up users & groups (instead  
         of the host system passwd(5) and group(5) databases).  
         The build system was modified to take advantage of  
         this option (using ${NETBSDSRCDIR}/etc), so if you  
         use USETOOLS==no, you may have to rebuild and  
         reinstall usr.bin/xinstall first.  
         fparseln(3) moved from libutil to libc.  
         If building to DESTDIR=/, reinstall the includes  
         and rebuild libc:  
                 make includes  
                 make do-lib-libc  
         If using build.sh, "cd tools/compat && make clean"  
         before rebuilding the tools.  
         The mk.conf(5) variable SYS_INCLUDE has been deprecated,  
         including the optional "SYS_INCLUDE=symlinks" support.  
         All header files, including <sys/*.h> are copied into  
         The C run-time support files crtbegin.o and crtend.o  
         (and their companions crtbeginS.o and crtendS.o) were  
         split up, with new crti.o and crtn.o files resulting.  
         This means that libtool needs to be rebuilt once the  
         new libraries are installed.  The process of rebuilding  
         libtool will cause it to automatically notice the new  
         required files, but it *must* be rebuilt in order to  
         do this.  
         An out-of-date libtool will result in shared libraries  
         which lack _init() and _fini() routines, which means that  
         their global contructors/destructors will not be invoked.  
         A bug related to how ARM ELF objects were tagged has been  
         NetBSD ARM ELF uses the soft-VFP floating point model by  
         default.  However, the assembler lacked support for marking  
         objects as using the VFP floating point format, and the  
         compiler was not properly passing the flag indicating "soft-VFP"  
         to the assembler.  
         Unfortunately, this means that the linker will now consider  
         old (i.e. not marked "softvfp") NetBSD ARM ELF objects to be  
         incompatible with new (properly marked) objects.  
         The problem will only manifest itself if you attempt to compile  
         a new program using the fixed toolchain, and link that program  
         against old libraries which do not have the proper "softvfp"  
         The only work-around for the problem is to recompile all of  
         the libraries on the system.  The easiest way to do this for  
         system libraries is to install a binary snapshot; they are  
         generally available on releng.NetBSD.org.  Any packages you  
         have installed which supply libraries will have to be recompiled  
         if you wish to link new programs against those libraries.  
         If you have questions about this matter, please contact  
         Systrace has been improved to support privilege elevation.  
         Updating the kernel requires the userland part of systrace  
         to be rebuilt.  
         The config(8) grammar was changed to allow options to register  
         dependencies on attributes, as well as other options.  Users  
         must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config before building a new  
         A new attribute dependency syntax was introduced to config(8),  
         which is now used by the SCSI configuration description.  Users  
         must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config before building a new  
         Several changes have been made to the autoconfiguration  
         framework.  Users must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config  
         before building a new kernel.  
         The i386mp branch has been merged.  To compile a kernel, users  
         will need to add the option 'cpu* at mainbus?' to their configuration  
         file.  Multiprocessor kernels will need  
         ioapic*         at mainbus? apid ?  
         options         MULTIPROCESSOR  
         options         COM_MPLOCK  
         MKDYNAMICROOT=yes enabled by default, which means that  
         certain shared libraries are installed into /lib, the shared  
         linker is installed into /libexec, and all programs in /bin  
         and /sbin are dynamically linked.  
         If you do not use "make build", you should ensure that  
         you have the libraries and shared linker in the new locations,  
                 make do-lib-csu do-lib-libc do-lib do-gnu-lib do-ld.elf_so  
         USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN has been replaced with:  
             -   TOOLCHAIN_MISSING -- set to "yes" on platforms for which  
                 there is no working in-tree toolchain (hppa, ns32k, sh5,  
             -   EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN -- if defined by the user, points to the  
                 root of an external toolchain (e.g. /usr/local/gnu).  This  
                 enables the cross-build framework even for TOOLCHAIN_MISSING  
         gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and  
         reinstall usr.sbin/config before building the kernel.  
         Crunched rescue tools (contents of /bin and /sbin, plus others)  
         are now provided in /rescue.  
         To ensure that these are built statically linked (no matter  
         what the setting of LDSTATIC is), use a crunchgen(1) built  
         from sources newer than 20020820 (see the next entry).  
         crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program  
         is statically linked.  
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch  
         smmsp user/group has been added for sendmail.  
         Add the following into /etc/group:  
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
         smmsp:*:17:17::0:0:Sendmail Message Submission Program:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin  
         sshd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in, or sshd  
         will not let you log in (with default, or UsePrivlegeSeparation=yes)  
         Add the following into /etc/group:  
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
         sshd:*:16:16::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/chroot/sshd:/sbin/nologin  
         Also /var/chroot/sshd directory needs to be present (digged as part of  
         the build process).  
         NBUILDJOBS obsoleted in favor of just using -j.  
         etc/postinstall added, which performs various checks for  
         configuration file updates and changes, and can fix most of  
         the problems identified.  
         This should make it much easier to upgrade a system's  
         configuration from earlier systems (as far back as NetBSD 1.5).  
         <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for its "-a cmd" support.  
         Build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.  
         Raw IPv6 socket now makes strict checking for sa_family and sa_len  
         on send(2) operation.  Be sure to have sbin/rtsol and usr.sbin/rtsold  
         newer than November 2001 when you upgrade the kernel.  
         ssh configuration files were moved from /etc to /etc/ssh.  Beware  
         if you restart your machine from remote.  Note that sshd.conf needs  
         to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).  
         Users of the VAX port will need to rebuild and install gas  
         so it deal with the now present register prefix used in all  
         the VAX assembly files.  
         ntpd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in or builds  
         will break as mtree aborts early.  
         Add the following into /etc/group:  
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
         ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin  
         If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting  
         reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native  
         toolchain has some broken C++ bits.  
         To fix:  
         Build a new toolchain (i.e. build.sh -t)  
         Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)  
         After this a snapshot will be able to be built.  
         In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If  
         you've built and installed a system with the new toolchain up to this  
         point you do not have a working awk as its ability to do floating  
         point is broken.  
         To build:  
         remake and install gnu/lib/libgcc  
         remake and install gnu/usr.bin/gawk into /usr/bin (make sure it links  
         against the new libgcc.a)  
         Kernel config information was changed to use defflag in  
         the various "files" files.  Bug fixes to config(8) are  
         required in order for this to work properly.  Make sure  
         to build and install in usr.sbin/config before attempting  
         to build a new kernel.  
         libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)  
         before building libc.  
         The new document BUILDING.mdoc (view with nroff | more, or  
         see pre-generated .txt and .html versions) describes the build  
         procedure in great detail.  BUILDING, and the USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN  
         build process, are intended in the long run to replace this  
         manual update log.  
         Users building a USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN system should read the  
         BUILDING document for caveats.  Generally, BUILDING supersedes  
         UPDATING for these systems, as tool updating is taken care of  
         by the new build system.  
         src/etc/Makefile now needs install to be able to handle  
         symlinks that point to nowhere. A bug in install that  
         prevented this was corrected.  
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/xinstall  
         Better Solution: Use the new toolchain and it will just work  
         for you.  
         /etc/mtree/NetBSD.dist has been updated to take advantage of  
         absolute path support added to mtree(8). Older mtree(8)s don't  
         understand the format.  
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.sbin/mtree  
         Crunchgen has been updated to work via reach-over makefiles. Updating  
         is suggested before running a snapshot build  
         The new "ubcperf" code committed by Chuck Silvers removed  
         a header file, uvm/uvm_vnode.h.  There may be stale .depend  
         files that still reference this file.  
         Solution: "make cleandir && make dependall" in affected  
         grep.info is now built from grep.texi using makeinfo.  Since it  
         requires makeinfo v4.0, you need to install new texinfo before  
         building gnu/usr.bin/grep.  To install new texinfo, please follow  
         the instruction described in 20010726 entry.  
         (i386 only): i386 kernel now uses new instructions like  
         `fxsave' which old gas doesn't understand.  To build the  
         kernel successfully, you need to build and install a new toolchain,  
         (i.e., build.sh -t) or  (temporarily) comment out "options I686_CPU"  
         from your kernel configuration until you rebuild your userland.  
         See 20011029 above and BUILDING file in this directory for more information.  
         [updated 20020630 since i386 gas moved when USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN enabled]  
         Bootloader update on ELF platforms.  DDB in kernels from before  
         this will be unable to read symbol tables provided by newer  
         Texinfo was updated to 4.0.  To avoid failures when trying to  
         build the included texinfo files, do:  
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo  
         make MKINFO=no dependall install  
         Enabled correct .init/.fini processing in crt0.  The way this  
         was done was to change a -I directive to cc(1), which means  
         make(1) will have a stale dependency (it will be checking the  
         timestamp on the wrong "dot_init.h").  
         The symptom you will see is that new programs die with SIGSEGV  
         if you have a stale dependency.  
         Solution: "make cleandir" in both lib/csu and libexec/ld.elf_so  
         before starting your build.  
         A construct was added to uvm_page.h that uncovered a bug  
         in lint(1).  If you get a warning/error about a non-portable  
         bitfield, update your lint(1) before proceeding.  
         Added named user/group to system. Need to hand add this in or builds  
         will break as mtree aborts early.  
         To work around add by hand:  
         to /etc/group and add:  
         named:*:14:14::0:0:Named pseudo-user:/var/named:/sbin/nologin  
         to master.passwd (use vipw for instance if doing by hand).  
         Now a make build should progress.  
         get/setprogname() added. Any hostprogs that may use this will need  
         to be bootstrapped manually until the host system is current.  
         Known problems: sys/arch/macppc/stand/fixcoff  
                         usr.sbin/config (adding -DMAKE_BOOTSTRAP to  
                           CFLAGS and rebuilding should work)  
                         usr.sbin/mdsetimage - Build a static copy if  
                           building a snapshot before fully bootstrapped.  
         prepare the code to compile with stricter gcc flags. in  
         particular start eliminating redundant declarations. Yacc  
         needs to be installed before make build.  
         introduce .if commands(target) in make(1). You need to  
         bring everything up-to-date first, then without installing  
         anything make and install in usr.bin/make, then proceed  
         with make build.  
         bsd.subdir.mk committed 20001230 had a bug which caused  
         afterinstall targets to run too soon; update again.  
         New share/mk files needed to support .WAIT in SUBDIR variables.  
         If you get make errors,  
                 (cd share/mk; make install)  
         Also, PRINTOBJDIR has changed and is now used more heavily.  
         The `ca' device driver has been replaced by `ld'; although the  
         major and minor numbers haven't changed, you should update your /dev  
         The following make directives are obsoleted.  
         By default, RSA is built into libcrypto.  IDEA and RC5 will not be  
         built into libcrypto.  By using MKCRYPTO_{RC5,IDEA}, you can build  
         additional library libcrypto_{idea,rc5}.
