 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.

         The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386 kernel builds          'build.sh -u tools' or 'build.sh -u distribution'.  Ditto
         has been changed. The file is now stored as a uuencode file in CVS          src/tools/lex/ and src/usr.bin/lex/.
         and the generated Makefile will use the new .uue rules from bsd.file.mk  
         to build it.  20091001:
           On amd64 you must rebuild tools (to get the new binutils)
         This means you must have the latest bsd.files.mk installed when          before building a kernel, or the build fails on cpufunc.S.

         A bug in the cgd(4) blowfish code was corrected, without          symlink, failing the build.  Delete the link, and the subdir

         notices over several months. Users of cgd with blowfish cipher  
         ONLY must dump their data before updating their kernels, and  20090718:
         recreate cgd's and restore data using the new kernel. See          libc build changed so that strchr() provides the extra entry
         (recent message to current-users, URL when mail-index has updated)          point for index(). Update build of libc.a (and libc_pic.a)
           may fail because the archive contains the unwanted index.o.
 20040313:          (Similarly for strrchr() and rindex().)
         On acorn32, the opms and qms drivers have been withdrawn, and  
         the old wsqms driver is now called qms.  Kernel config files  20090709:
         will need updating.  See the ones in sys/arch/acorn32/conf          Native Xorg was upgraded again.  Builds will probably fail again
         for examples.          without a clean objdir, at least for src/external/mit/xorg.
   
 20040125:  20090616:
         On acorn32, the beep and sysbeep devices are no longer          Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
         needed, and will need to be deleted from kernel configuration          src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not

           subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
 20040109:          be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.
         Compatibility for old ffs superblock layouts has been  
         added, and the restrictive fsck checks have been reenabled  20090501:
         when using those layouts.  If you have been using -current          Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this
         since 20030402, you may find that fsck again signals fatal          can cause autoconf problems during the tool build for people
         superblock mismatches.  To repair, make sure you have          who fail to clean out their tools objects properly. If you

         See the following discussion for more information:  
         http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/current-users/2004/01/11/0022.html  20090325:
           The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
 20031203:          cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
         New binutils builds may fail due to old dependencies.  
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that  20090126:
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.          The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You
           need to 'rm -f __posix_fadvise50.*' in the libc build directory
 20031111:          to avoid using the old assembly stub.
         A newer mkdep is needed.  Error noting that is  
                 cc: Ambiguous abbreviation --  20090202:
           pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
 20031008:          detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
         /usr/include/sys/disklabel_mbr.h was removed.          ``pkg_admin rebuild''.
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that  
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.  20090110:
           time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:
 20031007:          1. Make sure your kernel has COMPAT_50 in it. Build and install.
         A sign exension bug was fixed which set all the high bits             This is needed even in the MODULAR kernel because there is
         of our newly expanded ffs fs_flags.  This should only             conditionally compiled code in rtsock.c.
         affect users who installed or upgraded in September of 2003.          2. make sure build.sh completes and the binaries in a chroot work
         A small utility program was posted to tech-kern which             before installing.
         should fix this problem, and a warning message was added          3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and
         to the kernel which should discover and warn about it.  See             your build breaks in the middle, don't despair. Make sure headers
         http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/tech-kern/2003/10/07/0005.html             are installed properly, and start building libraries first libc
              and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
 20030906:             libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
         With the addition of siginfo support the old signal trampoline             the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.
         code has been deprecated to COMPAT_16. Make sure that your running          4. If you compile packages and you notice link time warnings,
         kernel has COMPAT_16 enabled before building userland.             rebuild the required packages to update their shared libraries.
              Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages
 20030801:             that depend on it.
         With the new openssl, there is some header and library shuffling.          5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
         rm -f /usr/include/des.h /usr/include/kerberosIV/* /lib/libdes* \             will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
         /usr/lib/libdes* before building.          6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
              lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
 20030703:             for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
         Texinfo was updated to 4.6.  To avoid failures when trying to             upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
         build the included texinfo files, do:             boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
              newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo             files manually.
         make MKINFO=no dependall install          7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
              accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
 20030630:             removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
         Groff was updated to 1.19; it's probably necessary to do             /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
                 cd share/mk && make install             the file.
                 cd src/gnu/usr.bin/groff          8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
                 make MKMAN=no dependall install             disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
         (untested).             using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
              rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.
 20030516:  
         Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines  20081219:
         were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when          config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
         mountd got restarted because it freed memory that had already          swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
         been freed. This has been fixed and the kernel checks          (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
         export addresses very strictly. If you upgrade your kernel,          config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
         make sure you also upgrade mountd, because if your export          kernels.
         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.  20081205:
           If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
 20030402:          /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
         The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6          set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.
         fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch  
         with the first alternate, because they compare too many  20081122:
         fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade          On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
         your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.          file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
         None of this signals actual filesystem damage.          Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
           following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
 20030324:  
         sendmail version 8.12.8 was imported.  Since sendmail is          - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules
         now setgid to the smmsp group, and runs in "collection"  
         mode for most common activities, there is a new config          - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
         file called submit.cf that needs to live in /etc/mail.            for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
         The generic submit.cf sample in /usr/share/sendmail/cf  
         is named netbsd-msp.cf.  Upgrading your regular sendmail          If you have to load your kernel from a file system which is not of
         configuration file is also strongly advised.          the same type as the root file system, you have to load the necessary
           file system module manually on the boot prompt or in the boot.cfg file.
         See the section named "MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in  
         the updated /usr/share/sendmail/README file for more  20080827:
         information.          If you built and installed a libc from sources between
           2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
 20030117:          which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
         Texinfo was updated to 4.3.  To avoid failures when trying to          Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
         build the included texinfo files, do:          needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
             $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo  
         make MKINFO=no dependall install  20080813:
           MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
 20021223:          about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.
         The METALOG format changed slightly, to remove the leading  
         "${DESTDIR}" from path names.  20080802:
         This only affects people building with UNPRIVED.          A regression in binary compatibility for pthread_mutex_t has

         alternate location to look up users & groups (instead  
         of the host system passwd(5) and group(5) databases).  20080731:

         this option (using ${NETBSDSRCDIR}/etc), so if you          and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
         use USETOOLS==no, you may have to rebuild and          don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
         reinstall usr.bin/xinstall first.          especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
           also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You

                 make do-lib-libc  
         If using build.sh, "cd tools/compat && make clean"  20080531:
         before rebuilding the tools.          The ioctl number of DRVSUSPENDDEV command on /dev/drvctl changed
           from 125 (conflicted with DRVCTLCOMMAND) to 129. The drvctl(8)

         The mk.conf(5) variable SYS_INCLUDE has been deprecated,          won't work correctly. The following sequence of commands:
         including the optional "SYS_INCLUDE=symlinks" support.

         (and their companions crtbeginS.o and crtendS.o) were  
         split up, with new crti.o and crtn.o files resulting.  20080503:

                 make do-lib-csu do-lib-libc do-lib do-gnu-lib do-ld.elf_so          src/lib/libc/Makefile 1.130.
   
 20020917:  20070210:
         USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN has been replaced with:          src/sys/sys/{sa.h,savar.h} were removed.
             -   TOOLCHAIN_MISSING -- set to "yes" on platforms for which            find ${OBJDIR} \( -name .depend -o -name '*.d' \) -print \
                 there is no working in-tree toolchain (hppa, ns32k, sh5,                | xargs egrep -l '/sa.h|/savar.h' | xargs rm
                 x86_64).          will allow dependencies on those files to get get rebuilt
             -   EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN -- if defined by the user, points to the  
                 root of an external toolchain (e.g. /usr/local/gnu).  This  20070209:
                 enables the cross-build framework even for TOOLCHAIN_MISSING          The threading model was changed when the newlock2 branch
                 platforms.          was merged to NetBSD-current.  If you boot with a new
           kernel (version 4.99.10), then you also need a new pthread
 20020906:          library (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.7).  If you boot with
         gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and          an old kernel, then you need the old pthread library
         reinstall usr.sbin/config before building the kernel.          (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.6).  Provided you keep the kernel and
           the pthread library in sync, old threaded applications should
 20020822:          continue to work with an old or new kernel.  Note that named(8)
         Crunched rescue tools (contents of /bin and /sbin, plus others)          is the only threaded application in the base system.
         are now provided in /rescue.  
   20061214:
         To ensure that these are built statically linked (no matter          Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
         what the setting of LDSTATIC is), use a crunchgen(1) built          from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds
         from sources newer than 20020820 (see the next entry).          will need to do a "make cleandir" in
                   tools/mtree/, tools/makefs/, tools/binstall/, tools/pax/,
 20020820:                  bin/pax/, bin/ls/, usr.sbin/mtree/, usr.sbin/makefs/,
         crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program                  usr.bin/xinstall/, libexec/ftpd/, rescue/, as well
         is statically linked.                  as the installation images in distrib/
           in order to excise stale references to the old stat_flags.h header
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch          file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
   
 20020605:  20061108:
         smmsp user/group has been added for sendmail.          The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
           changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
         Add the following into /etc/group:          does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
           make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
         smmsp:*:17:  
   20061009:
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):          The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
           available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
         smmsp:*:17:17::0:0:Sendmail Message Submission Program:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin  
   20060814:
 20020515:          The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been
         sshd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in, or sshd          withdrawn.  Use vidcvideo and pckbd instead.  See the GENERIC
         will not let you log in (with default, or UsePrivlegeSeparation=yes)          kernel configuration for an example.  X servers from the last
           few years should cope.
         Add the following into /etc/group:  
   20060703:
         sshd:*:16:          MPACPI is no more. We always configure PCI interrupts using ACPI
           if we have an ACPI kernel. The option MPACPI_SCANPCI has been renamed
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):          to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
   
         sshd:*:16:16::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/chroot/sshd:/sbin/nologin  20060627:
           socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
         Also /var/chroot/sshd directory needs to be present (digged as part of          For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
         the build process).          your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
           errors will result.
 20020426:  
         NBUILDJOBS obsoleted in favor of just using -j.  
   
 20020426:  
         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).  
   
 20020320:  
         <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for its "-a cmd" support.  
         Build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.  
   
 20020319:  
         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.  
   
 20020311:  
         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).  
   
 20020223:  
         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.  
   
 20020118:  
         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:  
   
         ntpd:*:15:  
   
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
   
         ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin  
   
 20011207:  
         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)  
   
         gnu/lib/libgcc  
         gnu/lib/libstdc++  
   
         After this a snapshot will be able to be built.  
   
 20011201:  
         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)  
   
 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}.
