 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

         New binutils builds may fail due to old dependencies.          The termcap database has been removed from the sources,
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that          but has not been marked obsolete so it is not removed
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.          from the system when upgrading.
           As such, you will need to remove them from your object
 20031111:          and destination directories.
         A newer mkdep is needed.  Error noting that is  
                 cc: Ambiguous abbreviation --  20091101:
           After updating, it may be necessary to make the 'cleandir'
 20031008:          target in src/tools/yacc/ and in src/usr.bin/yacc/ before a
         /usr/include/sys/disklabel_mbr.h was removed.          'build.sh -u tools' or 'build.sh -u distribution'.  Ditto
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that          src/tools/lex/ and src/usr.bin/lex/.
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.  
   20091001:
 20030906:          On amd64 you must rebuild tools (to get the new binutils)
         With the addition of siginfo support the old signal trampoline          before building a kernel, or the build fails on cpufunc.S.
         code has been deprecated to COMPAT_16. Make sure that your running  
         kernel has COMPAT_16 enabled before building userland.  20091001:
           An error will create a ./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/compiled/xkb
 20030801:          symlink, failing the build.  Delete the link, and the subdir
         With the new openssl, there is some header and library shuffling.          it is in, and retry your build.
         rm -f /usr/include/des.h /usr/include/kerberosIV/* /lib/libdes* \  
         /usr/lib/libdes* before building.  20090718:
           libc build changed so that strchr() provides the extra entry
 20030703:          point for index(). Update build of libc.a (and libc_pic.a)
         Texinfo was updated to 4.6.  To avoid failures when trying to          may fail because the archive contains the unwanted index.o.
         build the included texinfo files, do:          (Similarly for strrchr() and rindex().)
   
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo  20090709:
         make MKINFO=no dependall install          Native Xorg was upgraded again.  Builds will probably fail again
           without a clean objdir, at least for src/external/mit/xorg.
 20030630:  
         Groff was updated to 1.19; it's probably necessary to do  20090616:
                 cd share/mk && make install          Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
                 cd src/gnu/usr.bin/groff          src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not

         (untested).          subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
           be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.
 20030516:  
         Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines  20090501:
         were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when          Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this

         file contains lines with an old inet4 address syntax (i.e.          objects and start again.
         a.b.c or a.b or a), they will get rejected by the new kernel.  
   20090325:
 20030402:          The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
         The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6          cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
         fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch  
         with the first alternate, because they compare too many  20090126:
         fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade          The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You

         None of this signals actual filesystem damage.          to avoid using the old assembly stub.
   
 20030324:  20090202:
         sendmail version 8.12.8 was imported.  Since sendmail is          pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict

         use USETOOLS==no, you may have to rebuild and  
         reinstall usr.bin/xinstall first.  20081219:

         An out-of-date libtool will result in shared libraries  20080827:

 20020320:  20070209:
         <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for its "-a cmd" support.          The threading model was changed when the newlock2 branch
         Build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.          was merged to NetBSD-current.  If you boot with a new
           kernel (version 4.99.10), then you also need a new pthread
 20020319:          library (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.7).  If you boot with
         Raw IPv6 socket now makes strict checking for sa_family and sa_len          an old kernel, then you need the old pthread library
         on send(2) operation.  Be sure to have sbin/rtsol and usr.sbin/rtsold          (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.6).  Provided you keep the kernel and
         newer than November 2001 when you upgrade the kernel.          the pthread library in sync, old threaded applications should
           continue to work with an old or new kernel.  Note that named(8)
 20020311:          is the only threaded application in the base system.
         ssh configuration files were moved from /etc to /etc/ssh.  Beware  
         if you restart your machine from remote.  Note that sshd.conf needs  20061214:
         to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).          Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
           from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds
 20020223:          will need to do a "make cleandir" in
         Users of the VAX port will need to rebuild and install gas                  tools/mtree/, tools/makefs/, tools/binstall/, tools/pax/,
         so it deal with the now present register prefix used in all                  bin/pax/, bin/ls/, usr.sbin/mtree/, usr.sbin/makefs/,
         the VAX assembly files.                  usr.bin/xinstall/, libexec/ftpd/, rescue/, as well
                   as the installation images in distrib/
 20020118:          in order to excise stale references to the old stat_flags.h header
         ntpd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in or builds          file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
         will break as mtree aborts early.  
   20061108:
         Add the following into /etc/group:          The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
           changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
         ntpd:*:15:          does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
           make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
   20061009:
         ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin          The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
           available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
 20011207:  
         If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting  20060814:
         reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native          The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been

           kernel configuration for an example.  X servers from the last
         To fix:          few years should cope.
   
         Build a new toolchain (i.e. build.sh -t)  20060703:
         Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)          MPACPI is no more. We always configure PCI interrupts using ACPI
           if we have an ACPI kernel. The option MPACPI_SCANPCI has been renamed
         gnu/lib/libgcc          to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
         gnu/lib/libstdc++  
   20060627:
         After this a snapshot will be able to be built.          socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
           For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
 20011201:          your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
         In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If          errors will result.
         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)  
   
 20011128:  
         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.  
   
 20011030:  
         libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)  
         before building libc.  
   
 20011029:  
         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.  
   
 20011028:  
         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.  
   
 20011006:  
         /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  
   
 20011004:  
         Crunchgen has been updated to work via reach-over makefiles. Updating  
         is suggested before running a snapshot build  
   
 20010915:  
         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  
         directories.  
   
 20010803:  
         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.  
   
 20010803:  
         (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]  
   
 20010731:  
         Bootloader update on ELF platforms.  DDB in kernels from before  
         this will be unable to read symbol tables provided by newer  
         bootloaders.  
   
 20010726:  
         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  
   
 20010718:  
         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.  
   
 20010628:  
         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.  
   
 20010226:  
         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:  
   
         named:*:14:  
   
         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.  
   
 20010219:  
         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.  
   
 20010204:  
         prepare the code to compile with stricter gcc flags. in  
         particular start eliminating redundant declarations. Yacc  
         needs to be installed before make build.  
   
 20010114:  
         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.  
   
 20010101:  
         bsd.subdir.mk committed 20001230 had a bug which caused  
         afterinstall targets to run too soon; update again.  
   
 20001230:  
         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.  
   
 20001019:  
         The `ca' device driver has been replaced by `ld'; although the  
         major and minor numbers haven't changed, you should update your /dev  
         directory.  
   
 20000929:  
         The following make directives are obsoleted.  
         MKCRYPTO_RSA NOCRYPTO_RSA NOCRYPTO_RC5 NOCRYPTO_IDEA  
         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}.
