 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.

 20020917:  20100204:
         USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN has been replaced with:          The termcap database has been removed from the sources,
             -   TOOLCHAIN_MISSING -- set to "yes" on platforms for which          but has not been marked obsolete so it is not removed
                 there is no working in-tree toolchain (hppa, ns32k, sh5,          from the system when upgrading.
                 x86_64).          As such, you will need to remove them from your object
             -   EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN -- if defined by the user, points to the          and destination directories.
                 root ofan external toolchain (e.g. /usr/local/gnu).  This  
                 enables the cross-build framework even for TOOLCHAIN_MISSING  20091101:
                 platforms.          After updating, it may be necessary to make the 'cleandir'
           target in src/tools/yacc/ and in src/usr.bin/yacc/ before a
 20020906:          'build.sh -u tools' or 'build.sh -u distribution'.  Ditto
         gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and          src/tools/lex/ and src/usr.bin/lex/.
         reinstall usr.sbin/config before build the kernel.  
   20091001:
 20020822:          On amd64 you must rebuild tools (to get the new binutils)
         Crunched rescue tools (contents of /bin and /sbin, plus others)          before building a kernel, or the build fails on cpufunc.S.
         are now provided in /rescue.  
   20091001:
         To ensure that these are built statically linked (no matter          An error will create a ./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/compiled/xkb
         what the setting of LDSTATIC is), use a crunchgen(1) built          symlink, failing the build.  Delete the link, and the subdir
         from sources newer than 20020820 (see the next entry).          it is in, and retry your build.
   
 20020820:  20090718:
         crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program          libc build changed so that strchr() provides the extra entry
         is statically linked.          point for index(). Update build of libc.a (and libc_pic.a)
           may fail because the archive contains the unwanted index.o.
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch          (Similarly for strrchr() and rindex().)
   
 20020515:  20090709:
         sshd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in, or sshd          Native Xorg was upgraded again.  Builds will probably fail again
         will not let you log in (with default, or UsePrivlegeSeparation=yes)          without a clean objdir, at least for src/external/mit/xorg.
   
         Add the following into /etc/group:  20090616:
           Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
         sshd:*:16:          src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not
           work properly yet as the /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):          subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
           be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.
         sshd:*:16:16::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/chroot/sshd:/sbin/nologin  
   20090501:
         also /var/chroot/sshd directory needs to be present (digged as a part of          Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this
         build process).          can cause autoconf problems during the tool build for people
           who fail to clean out their tools objects properly. If you

         NBUILDJOBS obsoleted in favor of just using -j.          failure during the tool build, clean out all your tools
           objects and start again.
 20020426:  
         etc/postinstall added, which performs various checks for  20090325:
         configuration file updates and changes, and can fix most of          The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
         the problems identified.          cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
         This should make it much easier to upgrade a system's  
         configuration from earlier systems (as far back as NetBSD 1.5).  20090126:
           The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You
 20020320:          need to 'rm -f __posix_fadvise50.*' in the libc build directory
         <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for it's "-a cmd" support.          to avoid using the old assembly stub.
         build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.  
   20090202:
 20020319:          pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
         raw IPv6 socket now makes strict checking for sa_family and sa_len          detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
         on send(2) operation.  be sure to have sbin/rtsol and usr.sbin/rtsold          ``pkg_admin rebuild''.
         newer than November 2001 when you upgrade the kernel.  
   20090110:
 20020311:          time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:
         ssh configuration files were moved from /etc to /etc/ssh.  Beware          1. Make sure your kernel has COMPAT_50 in it. Build and install.
         if you restart your machine from remote.  Note that sshd.conf needs             This is needed even in the MODULAR kernel because there is
         to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).             conditionally compiled code in rtsock.c.
           2. make sure build.sh completes and the binaries in a chroot work
 20020223:             before installing.
         Users of the VAX port will need to rebuild and install gas          3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and
         so it deal with the now present register prefix used in all             your build breaks in the middle, don't despair. Make sure headers
         the VAX assembly files.             are installed properly, and start building libraries first libc
              and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
 20020118:             libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
              the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.
         ntpd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in or builds          4. If you compile packages and you notice link time warnings,
         will break as mtree aborts early.             rebuild the required packages to update their shared libraries.
              Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages
         Add the following into /etc/group:             that depend on it.
           5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
         ntpd:*:15:             will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
           6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):             lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
              for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
         ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin             upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
              boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
 20011207:             newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
              files manually.
         If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting          7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
         reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native             accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
         toolchain has some broken C++ bits.             removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
              /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
         To fix:             the file.
           8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
         Build a new toolchain (i.e. build.sh -t)             disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
         Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)             using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
              rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.
         gnu/lib/libgcc  
         gnu/lib/libstdc++  20081219:
           config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
         After this a snapshot will be able to be built.          swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
           (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
 20011201:          config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
         In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If          kernels.
         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  20081205:
         point is broken.          If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
           /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
         To build:          set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.
   
         remake and install gnu/lib/libgcc  20081122:
         remake and install gnu/usr.bin/gawk into /usr/bin (make sure it links          On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
         against the new libgcc.a)          file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
           Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
 20011128:          following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
         Kernel config information was changed to use defflag in  
         the various "files" files.  Bug fixes to config(8) are          - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules
         required in order for this to work properly.  Make sure  
         to build and install in usr.sbin/config before attempting          - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
         to build a new kernel.            for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
   
 20011030:          If you have to load your kernel from a file system which is not of
         libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)          the same type as the root file system, you have to load the necessary
         before building libc.          file system module manually on the boot prompt or in the boot.cfg file.
   
 20011029:  20080827:
         The new document BUILDING.mdoc (view with nroff | more, or          If you built and installed a libc from sources between
         see pre-generated .txt and .html versions) describes the build          2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
         procedure in great detail.  BUILDING, and the USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN          which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
         build process, are intended in the long run to replace this          Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
         manual update log.          needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
             $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
         Users building a USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN system should read the  
         BUILDING document for caveats.  Generally, BUILDING supersedes  20080813:
         UPDATING for these systems, as tool updating is taken care of          MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
         by the new build system.          about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.
   
 20011028:  20080802:
         src/etc/Makefile now needs install to be able to handle          A regression in binary compatibility for pthread_mutex_t has
         symlinks that point to nowhere. A bug in install that          been fixed. Unfortunately, the price is breaking compatibility
         prevented this was corrected.          for -current.
   
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/xinstall          Threaded programs (using libpthread) and C++ programs (using
         Better Solution: Use the new toolchain and it will just work          libstdc++) compiled after 20070907 and before 20080802 need to
         for you.          be recompiled.
   
 20011006:          One way to find affected pkgsrc packages:
         /etc/mtree/NetBSD.dist has been updated to take advantage of  
         absolute path support added to mtree(8). Older mtree(8)s don't            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libpthread /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         understand the format.            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libstdc++ /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
   
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.sbin/mtree  20080731:
           WAPBL (metadata journaling support) has been added, but at this
 20011004:          time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
         Crunchgen has been updated to work via reach-over makefiles. Updating          and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
         is suggested before running a snapshot build          don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
           especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
 20010915:          also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You
         The new "ubcperf" code committed by Chuck Silvers removed          can use fsck_ffs -c 4 to update the superblock format.
         a header file, uvm/uvm_vnode.h.  There may be stale .depend  
         files that still reference this file.  20080721:
           Assembler warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0 and $NOGCCERROR
         Solution: "make cleandir && make dependall" in affected          isn't defined.
         directories.  
   20080531:
 20010803:          The ioctl number of DRVSUSPENDDEV command on /dev/drvctl changed
         grep.info is now built from grep.texi using makeinfo.  Since it          from 125 (conflicted with DRVCTLCOMMAND) to 129. The drvctl(8)
         requires makeinfo v4.0, you need to install new texinfo before          utility needs to be rebuilt and reinstalled as older binaries
         building gnu/usr.bin/grep.  To install new texinfo, please follow          won't work correctly. The following sequence of commands:
         the instruction described in 20010726 entry.  
             $ (cd sys/sys/ && nbmake-$arch includes)
 20010803:            $ (cd sbin/drvctl/ && nbmake-$arch clean)
         (i386 only): i386 kernel now uses new instructions like            $ (cd sbin/drvctl/ && nbmake-$arch all)
         `fxsave' which old gas doesn't understand.  To build the  
         kernel successfully, you need to build and install a new toolchain,          leaves new drvctl utility in sbin/drvctl build directory.
         (i.e., build.sh -t) or  (temporarily) comment out "options I686_CPU"  
         from your kernel configuration until you rebuild your userland.  20080503:
         See 20011029 above and BUILDING file in this directory for more information.          The <bsd.lib.mk> variable MKPRIVATELIB was renamed to LIBISPRIVATE.
         [updated 20020630 since i386 gas moved when USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN enabled]  
   20080521:
 20010731:          For a while, unprivileged UPDATE builds would fail to
         Bootloader update on ELF platforms.  DDB in kernels from before          succeed at the checkflist stage, complaining that
         this will be unable to read symbol tables provided by newer          ${DESTDIR}/stand/<arch>/ did not exist.  A fix for this
         bootloaders.          problem was committed to share/mk/bsd.kmodule.mk, revision 1.9.
           If you already hit this problem, update the .mk file,
 20010726:          remove ${DESTDIR}/stand/<arch>, and re-run the build.
         Texinfo was updated to 4.0.  To avoid failures when trying to  
         build the included texinfo files, do:  20080303:
           Linker warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0.
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo  
         make MKINFO=no dependall install  20080126:
           The posix_fadvise system call has been changed from an assembly
 20010718:          stub, to a c file that calls an assembly stub. You need to
         Enabled correct .init/.fini processing in crt0.  The way this          'rm -f posix_fadvise.* .depend' in the libc build directory to
         was done was to change a -I directive to cc(1), which means          avoid using the old assembly stub.
         make(1) will have a stale dependency (it will be checking the  
         timestamp on the wrong "dot_init.h").  20071209:
           The acpiec(4) driver has been split into two attachments. If you

         Solution: "make cleandir" in both lib/csu and libexec/ld.elf_so  20071115:
         before starting your build.          The it(4) driver has been renamed to itesio(4) and the old port
           argument specified in the kernel configuration file is not valid
 20010628:          anymore. The itesio(4) driver now uses the Super I/O address port
         A construct was added to uvm_page.h that uncovered a bug          rather than the EC address port. Please update your kernel

   20071028:
 20010226:          The pccons(4) driver has been removed from the NetBSD/shark port.
         Added named user/group to system. Need to hand add this in or builds          You need to update any custom kernel configuration file you have

   20070913:
         to /etc/group and add:          A latent bug in dhclient/dhcpd that caused it to be unable to
           enumerate interfaces was fixed.  The bug began to cause
         named:*:14:14::0:0:Named pseudo-user:/var/named:/sbin/nologin          problems after 20070911 when the kernel's SIOCGIFCONF
           implementation was repaired.  From 20070529 to 20070911 racoon
         to master.passwd (use vipw for instance if doing by hand).          could not enumerate interfaces.  (These are noted because
           normal kernel/userspace version matching hygiene is not
         Now a make build should progress.          sufficient to avoid this problem.)  Ensure that both kernel
           and userland are from after 20070913.
 20010219:  
         get/setprogname() added. Any hostprogs that may use this will need  20070703:
         to be bootstrapped manually until the host system is current.          nbinstall has been renamed ${MACHINE_GNU_ARCH}-install. It
           calls the target-specific strip program, and the logic to pass

                         usr.sbin/mdsetimage - Build a static copy if  20070422:
                           building a snapshot before fully bootstrapped.          The way OS emulations lookup filenames inside the emulation root

         bsd.subdir.mk committed 20001230 had a bug which caused  
         afterinstall targets to run too soon; update again.  20070319:
           src/lib/libc/Makefile revision 1.129 broke libc and ld.elf_so

         Also, PRINTOBJDIR has changed and is now used more heavily.          incorrectly, and ensure that you have at least
           src/lib/libc/Makefile 1.130.
 20001019:  
         The `ca' device driver has been replaced by `ld'; although the  20070210:

           library (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.7).  If you boot with
           an old kernel, then you need the old pthread library
           (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.6).  Provided you keep the kernel and
           the pthread library in sync, old threaded applications should
           continue to work with an old or new kernel.  Note that named(8)
           is the only threaded application in the base system.
   
   20061214:
           Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
           from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds
           will need to do a "make cleandir" in
                   tools/mtree/, tools/makefs/, tools/binstall/, tools/pax/,
                   bin/pax/, bin/ls/, usr.sbin/mtree/, usr.sbin/makefs/,
                   usr.bin/xinstall/, libexec/ftpd/, rescue/, as well
                   as the installation images in distrib/
           in order to excise stale references to the old stat_flags.h header
           file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
   
   20061108:
           The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
           changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
           does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
           make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
   
   20061009:
           The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
           available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
   
   20060814:
           The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been
           withdrawn.  Use vidcvideo and pckbd instead.  See the GENERIC
           kernel configuration for an example.  X servers from the last
           few years should cope.
   
   20060703:
           MPACPI is no more. We always configure PCI interrupts using ACPI
           if we have an ACPI kernel. The option MPACPI_SCANPCI has been renamed
           to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
   
   20060627:
           socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
           For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
           your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
           errors will result.
