         make a build continue.             before installing.
           3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and

         a password).             the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.

         Make had a path resolution bug that manifested itself as not             Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages

         you might need to rebuild make manually first to get through          5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
         the build.             will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
           6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
 20041201:             lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
         Userland programs have been changed to use /dev/bpf instead of             for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
         /dev/bpfX. You need to create that device by installing a new             upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
         MAKEDEV and running it, or mv /dev/bpf0 /dev/bpf && rm /dev/bpf[0-9]*             boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
              newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
 20041006:             files manually.
           7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
         A bug was introduced into /bin/sh (var.c rev 1.35) which causes             accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
         variables to not export correctly to subshells in all cases. This             removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by

         on the system. The proper version of /bin/sh can be verified with:             the file.
           8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
         ident /bin/sh | grep var             disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
              using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
         Any /bin/sh w. version 1.35 will not work and needs to be updated             rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.
         before attempting a build.  
 20041001:          config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
         The ipfilter kernel sources moved from sys/netinet to          swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
         dist/sys/ipf/netinet. Due to the move some Makefile          (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
         dependencies are now dangling requiring a make cleandir          config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
         before they work again (kdump, ktruss, rescue, ipf, and          kernels.
         ftp-proxy are the victims).  
 20040715:          If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
         The rc.d/sendmail script now uses a heuristic to determine          /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
         if sendmail should be started at boot time.  It checks the          set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.
         contents of /etc/mailer.conf, /etc/mail/submit.cf, and the  
         owner and mode of the sendmail binary to see if any changes  20081122:
         to the mail infrastructure have been made.  If no changes          On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
         are detected, it will start an SMTP listener.          file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
           Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
         Setting sendmail=NO in /etc/rc.conf will override this.          following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
         If you are only using sendmail by default and only for          - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules

 20040621:          If you built and installed a libc from sources between
         Due to the recent rototill of tools/compat it's crucial one starts          2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
         from a clean objdir under tools/*.          which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
           Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
         This is mostly due to generated files (yacc and lex sources) needing          needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
         to be generated with new rules from bsd.hostprog.mk.            $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
         The safest course is to rm -rf all objects under tools before building.  20080813:
           MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
 20040516:          about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.
         The end-user modifiable X11 configuration has been moved  
         from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/<dir> to /etc/X11/<dir>.  20080802:

         manually move these files yourself.          be recompiled.
 20040426:          One way to find affected pkgsrc packages:
         Support for the original dynamic sysctl node structure has  
         been removed in favor of the newer layout.  This affects            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libpthread /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         consumers of the create and delete interface, as well as            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libstdc++ /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         the dynamic discovery mechanism.  This is believed only to  
         be the sysctl(8) binary itself, at this point in time, so  20080731:
         the only effect of this should be that a sysctl binary          WAPBL (metadata journaling support) has been added, but at this
         built from sources dated between 2003/12/04 and 2004/03/24          time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
         will not work on a kernel built from sources dated after          and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
         2004/04/25.  If you need a new sysctl binary but build.sh          don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
         does not work, make sure that your revision of          especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
         src/sys/sys/sysctl.h is 1.112 (or later), and then the          also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You

         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo          the pthread library in sync, old threaded applications should
         make MKINFO=no dependall install          continue to work with an old or new kernel.  Note that named(8)
           is the only threaded application in the base system.
         Groff was updated to 1.19; it's probably necessary to do  20061214:
                 cd share/mk && make install          Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
                 cd src/gnu/usr.bin/groff          from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds
                 make MKMAN=no dependall install          will need to do a "make cleandir" in
         (untested).                  tools/mtree/, tools/makefs/, tools/binstall/, tools/pax/,

         Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines                  as the installation images in distrib/
         were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when          in order to excise stale references to the old stat_flags.h header
         mountd got restarted because it freed memory that had already          file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
         been freed. This has been fixed and the kernel checks  
         export addresses very strictly. If you upgrade your kernel,  20061108:
         make sure you also upgrade mountd, because if your export          The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
         file contains lines with an old inet4 address syntax (i.e.          changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
         a.b.c or a.b or a), they will get rejected by the new kernel.          does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
           make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
         The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6  20061009:
         fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch          The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
         with the first alternate, because they compare too many          available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
         fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade  
         your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.  20060814:
         None of this signals actual filesystem damage.          The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been
           withdrawn.  Use vidcvideo and pckbd instead.  See the GENERIC
 20030324:          kernel configuration for an example.  X servers from the last
         sendmail version 8.12.8 was imported.  Since sendmail is          few years should cope.
         now setgid to the smmsp group, and runs in "collection"  
         mode for most common activities, there is a new config  20060703:
         file called submit.cf that needs to live in /etc/mail.          MPACPI is no more. We always configure PCI interrupts using ACPI
         The generic submit.cf sample in /usr/share/sendmail/cf          if we have an ACPI kernel. The option MPACPI_SCANPCI has been renamed
         is named netbsd-msp.cf.  Upgrading your regular sendmail          to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
         configuration file is also strongly advised.  
         See the section named "MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in          socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
         the updated /usr/share/sendmail/README file for more          For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
         information.          your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
           errors will result.
         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}.
