 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.

         A new attribute dependency syntax was introduced to config(8),  20091101:

              will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
 20020320:          6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
         <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for it's "-a cmd" support.             lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
         build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.             for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
              upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during

         to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).          8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
              disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are

         Add the following into /etc/group:  20081205:
           If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
         ntpd:*:15:          /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
           set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):  
         ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin          On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
           file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
 20011207:          Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
           following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
         If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting  
         reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native          - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules

         Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)          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.

           If you built and installed a libc from sources between
         After this a snapshot will be able to be built.          2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
           which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
 20011201:          Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
         In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If          needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
         you've built and installed a system with the new toolchain up to this            $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
         point you do not have a working awk as its ability to do floating  
         point is broken.  20080813:
           MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
         To build:          about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.

         against the new libgcc.a)          been fixed. Unfortunately, the price is breaking compatibility
           for -current.
         Kernel config information was changed to use defflag in          Threaded programs (using libpthread) and C++ programs (using

         to build and install in usr.sbin/config before attempting  
         to build a new kernel.          One way to find affected pkgsrc packages:
 20011030:            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libpthread /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libstdc++ /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         before building libc.  
 20011029:          WAPBL (metadata journaling support) has been added, but at this
         The new document BUILDING.mdoc (view with nroff | more, or          time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
         see pre-generated .txt and .html versions) describes the build          and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
         procedure in great detail.  BUILDING, and the USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN          don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
         build process, are intended in the long run to replace this          especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL

           can use fsck_ffs -c 4 to update the superblock format.
         Users building a USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN system should read the  
         BUILDING document for caveats.  Generally, BUILDING supersedes  20080721:

 20011028:  20080531:
         src/etc/Makefile now needs install to be able to handle          The ioctl number of DRVSUSPENDDEV command on /dev/drvctl changed
         symlinks that point to nowhere. A bug in install that          from 125 (conflicted with DRVCTLCOMMAND) to 129. The drvctl(8)
         prevented this was corrected.          utility needs to be rebuilt and reinstalled as older binaries
           won't work correctly. The following sequence of commands:
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/xinstall  
         Better Solution: Use the new toolchain and it will just work            $ (cd sys/sys/ && nbmake-$arch includes)

         /etc/mtree/NetBSD.dist has been updated to take advantage of          leaves new drvctl utility in sbin/drvctl build directory.
         absolute path support added to mtree(8). Older mtree(8)s don't  
         understand the format.  20080503:
           The <bsd.lib.mk> variable MKPRIVATELIB was renamed to LIBISPRIVATE.
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.sbin/mtree

           problem was committed to share/mk/bsd.kmodule.mk, revision 1.9.

         a header file, uvm/uvm_vnode.h.  There may be stale .depend

           Linker warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0.
         Solution: "make cleandir && make dependall" in affected  
         directories.  20080126:

         the instruction described in 20010726 entry.  20071209:
           The acpiec(4) driver has been split into two attachments. If you
 20010803:          get ACPI errors before the attachment, please update your kernel
         (i386 only): i386 kernel now uses new instructions like          configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
         `fxsave' which old gas doesn't understand.  To build the

         make MKINFO=no dependall install          A latent bug in dhclient/dhcpd that caused it to be unable to
           enumerate interfaces was fixed.  The bug began to cause
 20010718:          problems after 20070911 when the kernel's SIOCGIFCONF
         Enabled correct .init/.fini processing in crt0.  The way this          implementation was repaired.  From 20070529 to 20070911 racoon
         was done was to change a -I directive to cc(1), which means          could not enumerate interfaces.  (These are noted because
         make(1) will have a stale dependency (it will be checking the          normal kernel/userspace version matching hygiene is not
         timestamp on the wrong "dot_init.h").          sufficient to avoid this problem.)  Ensure that both kernel
           and userland are from after 20070913.
         The symptom you will see is that new programs die with SIGSEGV  
         if you have a stale dependency.  20070703:

         bsd.subdir.mk committed 20001230 had a bug which caused  20061214:
         afterinstall targets to run too soon; update again.          Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
           from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds

         The `ca' device driver has been replaced by `ld'; although the  
         major and minor numbers haven't changed, you should update your /dev  20061108:

           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.
           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.
           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.
