        !            12:        The rc.d/sendmail script now uses a heuristic to determine
        !            13:        if sendmail should be started at boot time.  It checks the
        !            14:        contents of /etc/mailer.conf, /etc/mail/submit.cf, and the
        !            15:        owner and mode of the sendmail binary to see if any changes
        !            16:        to the mail infrastructure have been made.  If no changes
        !            17:        are detected, it will start an SMTP listener.
        !            18:
        !            19:        Setting sendmail=NO in /etc/rc.conf will override this.
        !            20:
        !            21:        If you are only using sendmail by default and only for
        !            22:        local delivery, it is important that you also update your
        !            23:        sendmail.cf so that the SMTP listener only listens on the
        !            24:        loopback interface.

        !            26: 20040715:
        !            27:        The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386
        !            28:        kernel builds has been changed again.  The latest version
        !            29:        of bsd.files.mk is no longer required.

                     34:        has been changed. The file is now stored as a uuencode file in CVS
                     35:        and the generated Makefile will use the new .uue rules from bsd.file.mk
                     36:        to build it.
                     37:
                     38:        This means you must have the latest bsd.files.mk installed when
                     39:        building a kernel without USETOOLS=yes.

                     43:        provision of backwards compatibility, after several public
                     44:        notices over several months. Users of cgd with blowfish cipher
                     45:        ONLY must dump their data before updating their kernels, and
                     46:        recreate cgd's and restore data using the new kernel. See

                     51:        the old wsqms driver is now called qms.  Kernel config files
                     52:        will need updating.  See the ones in sys/arch/acorn32/conf

                     62:        added, and the restrictive fsck checks have been reenabled
                     63:        when using those layouts.  If you have been using -current
                     64:        since 20030402, you may find that fsck again signals fatal
1.110     dbj        65:        superblock mismatches.  To repair, make sure you have
1.111     simonb     66:        an updated fsck_ffs and then you can use fsck_ffs -b 16 -c 4
1.109     dbj        67:        to complete the filesystem upgrade.  A message has
1.111     simonb     68:        been added to the kernel which should detect this problem.

                     92:        to the kernel which should discover and warn about it.  See

                     97:        code has been deprecated to COMPAT_16. Make sure that your running

                    120:        Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines
                    121:        were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when
                    122:        mountd got restarted because it freed memory that had already
                    123:        been freed. This has been fixed and the kernel checks
                    124:        export addresses very strictly. If you upgrade your kernel,
                    125:        make sure you also upgrade mountd, because if your export

                    132:        with the first alternate, because they compare too many
