        !            14:        when using those layouts.  If you have been using -current

                     58:        Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines
                     59:        were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when
                     60:        mountd got restarted because it freed memory that had already
                     61:        been freed. This has been fixed and the kernel checks
                     62:        export addresses very strictly. If you upgrade your kernel,
                     63:        make sure you also upgrade mountd, because if your export
                     64:        file contains lines with an old inet4 address syntax (i.e.
                     65:        a.b.c or a.b or a), they will get rejected by the new kernel.

                     68:        The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6
                     69:        fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch
                     70:        with the first alternate, because they compare too many
                     71:        fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade
                     72:        your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.
                     73:        None of this signals actual filesystem damage.

                     78:        mode for most common activities, there is a new config

                     81:        is named netbsd-msp.cf.  Upgrading your regular sendmail
                     82:        configuration file is also strongly advised.
                     83:
                     84:        See the section named "MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in

                     86:        information.

                     97:        "${DESTDIR}" from path names.
                     98:        This only affects people building with UNPRIVED.
                     99:        For complete safety, remove the DESTDIR entirely and

                    114:        this option (using ${NETBSDSRCDIR}/etc), so if you
1.83      kei       115:        use USETOOLS==no, you may have to rebuild and

                    135:        (and their companions crtbeginS.o and crtendS.o) were

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

                    139:        libtool will cause it to automatically notice the new

                    144:        which lack _init() and _fini() routines, which means that
                    145:        their global contructors/destructors will not be invoked.

                    148:        A bug related to how ARM ELF objects were tagged has been
                    149:        corrected.
                    150:
                    151:        NetBSD ARM ELF uses the soft-VFP floating point model by
                    152:        default.  However, the assembler lacked support for marking
                    153:        objects as using the VFP floating point format, and the
1.79      wiz       154:        compiler was not properly passing the flag indicating "soft-VFP"
1.75      thorpej   155:        to the assembler.
                    156:
                    157:        Unfortunately, this means that the linker will now consider
                    158:        old (i.e. not marked "softvfp") NetBSD ARM ELF objects to be
                    159:        incompatible with new (properly marked) objects.
                    160:
                    161:        The problem will only manifest itself if you attempt to compile
                    162:        a new program using the fixed toolchain, and link that program
                    163:        against old libraries which do not have the proper "softvfp"
                    164:        markings.  ALL OF YOUR EXISTING BINARIES AND SHARED LIBRARIES

                    166:
                    167:        The only work-around for the problem is to recompile all of
                    168:        the libraries on the system.  The easiest way to do this for
1.79      wiz       169:        system libraries is to install a binary snapshot; they are

1.75      thorpej   171:        have installed which supply libraries will have to be recompiled
                    172:        if you wish to link new programs against those libraries.
