 20040621:  20090501:
         Due to the recent rototill of tools/compat it's crucial one starts          Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this

           objects and start again.
         The safest course is to rm -rf all objects under tools before building.

         Ensure that src and xsrc is up to date, and run  20090126:
         "make cleandir" in src/x11 before your next build.          The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You

         detect that this needs to occur, so you'll have to  20090202:
         manually move these files yourself.          pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
           detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
 20040426:          ``pkg_admin rebuild''.
         Support for the original dynamic sysctl node structure has  
         been removed in favor of the newer layout.  This affects  20090110:
         consumers of the create and delete interface, as well as          time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:

         do the following:             and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
              libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
         cd /usr/src (or wherever your source tree is)             the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.

         cd ../../sbin/sysctl             that depend on it.
         make USETOOLS=no dependall install          5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
              will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
         If you are using older sysctl binary, GNU autoconf would fail to          6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see

         possible.  For more details on the fixsb script, see pr install/25138.             rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.
   
 20040418:  20081219:
         statfs(2) and friends have been replaced with statvfs(2). Before          config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
         installing a newly build userland make sure that you are running          swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
         a newly built kernel with COMPAT_20 set. In addition your libc          (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
         build might not work (undefined SYS_statfs symbol) because make          config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
         clean does not know how to remove files it does not know about          kernels.
         anymore. Manually remove all generated .S sources and objects  
         from the libc build directory.  20081205:
           If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
 20040326:          /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
         The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386 kernel builds          set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.
         has been changed. The file is now stored as a uuencoded file in CVS  
         and the generated Makefile will use the new .uue rules from bsd.file.mk  20081122:
         to build it.          On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
           file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.

 20040318:          - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules
         A bug in the cgd(4) blowfish code was corrected, without  
         provision of backwards compatibility, after several public          - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
         notices over several months. Users of cgd with blowfish cipher            for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
         ONLY must dump their data before updating their kernels, and  
         recreate cgd's and restore data using the new kernel. See          If you have to load your kernel from a file system which is not of
         (recent message to current-users, URL when mail-index has updated)          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.
 20040313:  
         On acorn32, the opms and qms drivers have been withdrawn, and  20080827:
         the old wsqms driver is now called qms.  Kernel config files          If you built and installed a libc from sources between

         for examples.          which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
           Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
 20040125:          needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
         On acorn32, the beep and sysbeep devices are no longer            $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
         needed, and will need to be deleted from kernel configuration  
         files.  20080813:
           MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
 20040109:          about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.
         Compatibility for old ffs superblock layouts has been  
         added, and the restrictive fsck checks have been reenabled  20080802:

         an updated fsck_ffs and then you can use fsck_ffs -b 16 -c 4  
         to complete the filesystem upgrade.  A message has          Threaded programs (using libpthread) and C++ programs (using

           One way to find affected pkgsrc packages:

         New binutils builds may fail due to old dependencies.            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libpthread /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libstdc++ /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.  
   20080731:

           don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
 20031008:          especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL

         A sign exension bug was fixed which set all the high bits          isn't defined.
         of our newly expanded ffs fs_flags.  This should only  
         affect users who installed or upgraded in September of 2003.  20080531:
         A small utility program was posted to tech-kern which          The ioctl number of DRVSUSPENDDEV command on /dev/drvctl changed
         should fix this problem, and a warning message was added          from 125 (conflicted with DRVCTLCOMMAND) to 129. The drvctl(8)
         to the kernel which should discover and warn about it.  See          utility needs to be rebuilt and reinstalled as older binaries
         http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/tech-kern/2003/10/07/0005.html          won't work correctly. The following sequence of commands:
   
 20030906:            $ (cd sys/sys/ && nbmake-$arch includes)
         With the addition of siginfo support the old signal trampoline            $ (cd sbin/drvctl/ && nbmake-$arch clean)
         code has been deprecated to COMPAT_16. Make sure that your running            $ (cd sbin/drvctl/ && nbmake-$arch all)
         kernel has COMPAT_16 enabled before building userland.  
           leaves new drvctl utility in sbin/drvctl build directory.
 20030801:  
         With the new openssl, there is some header and library shuffling.  20080503:

         Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines

         None of this signals actual filesystem damage.          You need to update any custom kernel configuration file you have

         If using build.sh, "cd tools/compat && make clean"          will allow dependencies on those files to get get rebuilt
         before rebuilding the tools.  
   20070209:
 20021126:          The threading model was changed when the newlock2 branch
         The mk.conf(5) variable SYS_INCLUDE has been deprecated,          was merged to NetBSD-current.  If you boot with a new
         including the optional "SYS_INCLUDE=symlinks" support.          kernel (version 4.99.10), then you also need a new pthread
         All header files, including <sys/*.h> are copied into          library (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.7).  If you boot with

         This means that libtool needs to be rebuilt once the  20061214:

           file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
 20021121:  
         A bug related to how ARM ELF objects were tagged has been  20061108:
         corrected.          The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
           changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
         NetBSD ARM ELF uses the soft-VFP floating point model by          does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
         default.  However, the assembler lacked support for marking          make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
         objects as using the VFP floating point format, and the  
         compiler was not properly passing the flag indicating "soft-VFP"  20061009:
         to the assembler.          The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
           available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
         Unfortunately, this means that the linker will now consider  
         old (i.e. not marked "softvfp") NetBSD ARM ELF objects to be  20060814:
         incompatible with new (properly marked) objects.          The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been
           withdrawn.  Use vidcvideo and pckbd instead.  See the GENERIC

         The only work-around for the problem is to recompile all of          to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
         the libraries on the system.  The easiest way to do this for  
         system libraries is to install a binary snapshot; they are  20060627:
         generally available on releng.NetBSD.org.  Any packages you          socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
         have installed which supply libraries will have to be recompiled          For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
         if you wish to link new programs against those libraries.          your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
           errors will result.
         If you have questions about this matter, please contact  
         port-arm@NetBSD.org.  
   
 20021011:  
         Systrace has been improved to support privilege elevation.  
         Updating the kernel requires the userland part of systrace  
         to be rebuilt.  
   
 20021010:  
         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  
         kernel.  
   
 20021009:  
         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  
         kernel.  
   
 20021003:  
         Several changes have been made to the autoconfiguration  
         framework.  Users must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config  
         before building a new kernel.  
   
 20021001:  
         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  
   
 20020922:  
         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,  
         with:  
                 make do-lib-csu do-lib-libc do-lib do-gnu-lib do-ld.elf_so  
   
 20020917:  
         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,  
                 x86_64).  
             -   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  
                 platforms.  
   
 20020906:  
         gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and  
         reinstall usr.sbin/config before building the kernel.  
   
 20020822:  
         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).  
   
 20020820:  
         crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program  
         is statically linked.  
   
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch  
   
 20020605:  
         smmsp user/group has been added for sendmail.  
   
         Add the following into /etc/group:  
   
         smmsp:*:17:  
   
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
   
         smmsp:*:17:17::0:0:Sendmail Message Submission Program:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin  
   
 20020515:  
         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:  
   
         sshd:*:16:  
   
         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).  
   
 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}.
