1.123     jmc         3: This file (UPDATING) is intended to be a brief reference to recent
                      4: changes that might cause problems in the build process, and a guide for
                      5: what to do if something doesn't work.
1.1       abs         6:
1.123     jmc         7: For a more detailed description of the recommended way to build NetBSD
                      8: using build.sh, see the BUILDING file.
                      9:
                     10: Note that much of the advice in this UPDATING file was written before
                     11: build.sh existed.  Nevertheless, the advice here may be useful for
                     12: working around specific problems with build.sh.

                     20:        The ipfilter kernel sources moved from sys/netinet to
                     21:        dist/sys/ipf/netinet. Due to the move some Makefile
                     22:        dependencies are now dangling requiring a make cleandir

                     27:        The rc.d/sendmail script now uses a heuristic to determine
                     28:        if sendmail should be started at boot time.  It checks the
                     29:        contents of /etc/mailer.conf, /etc/mail/submit.cf, and the
                     30:        owner and mode of the sendmail binary to see if any changes
                     31:        to the mail infrastructure have been made.  If no changes
                     32:        are detected, it will start an SMTP listener.
                     33:
                     34:        Setting sendmail=NO in /etc/rc.conf will override this.
                     35:
                     36:        If you are only using sendmail by default and only for
                     37:        local delivery, it is important that you also update your
                     38:        sendmail.cf so that the SMTP listener only listens on the
                     39:        loopback interface.

                     42:        The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386
                     43:        kernel builds has been changed again.  The latest version
                     44:        of bsd.files.mk is no longer required.
                     45:
1.124     jmc        46: 20040621:
                     47:        Due to the recent rototill of tools/compat it's crucial one starts
                     48:        from a clean objdir under tools/*.
                     49:
                     50:        This is mostly due to generated files (yacc and lex sources) needing
1.125     atatat     51:        to be generated with new rules from bsd.hostprog.mk.
1.124     jmc        52:
                     53:        The safest course is to rm -rf all objects under tools before building.

                     56:        The end-user modifiable X11 configuration has been moved
                     57:        from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/<dir> to /etc/X11/<dir>.
                     58:        Ensure that src and xsrc is up to date, and run
                     59:        "make cleandir" in src/x11 before your next build.
                     60:
1.126     lukem      61:        postinstall currently doesn't migrate the files from
                     62:        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/* to /etc/X11/* although it does
                     63:        detect that this needs to occur, so you'll have to
                     64:        manually move these files yourself.
                     65:
1.119     atatat     66: 20040426:
                     67:        Support for the original dynamic sysctl node structure has
                     68:        been removed in favor of the newer layout.  This affects
                     69:        consumers of the create and delete interface, as well as
                     70:        the dynamic discovery mechanism.  This is believed only to
                     71:        be the sysctl(8) binary itself, at this point in time, so
                     72:        the only effect of this should be that a sysctl binary
                     73:        built from sources dated between 2003/12/04 and 2004/03/24
                     74:        will not work on a kernel built from sources dated after
                     75:        2004/04/25.  If you need a new sysctl binary but build.sh
                     76:        does not work, make sure that your revision of
1.120     atatat     77:        src/sys/sys/sysctl.h is 1.112 (or later), and then the
                     78:        do the following:

                     86:
1.122     itojun     87:        If you are using older sysctl binary, GNU autoconf would fail to
                     88:        identify your machine architecture, and tries to build binary for
                     89:        "unknown-unknown-netbsd20F" or something like that.  if that happens,
                     90:        make sure to follow the above steps.

                     94:        are now automatically addressed by the /etc/rc.d/fixsb script or by
                     95:        sysinst when it checks a a filesystem. The manual fsck_ffs -b16 -c4
                     96:        invocation mentioned below will continue to work and is now
                     97:        automated by those scripts.  Note that under certain circumstances,
                     98:        affected filesystems upgraded to a -current kernel first before
                     99:        upgrading their userland with the fixsb and fsck_ffs fixes may
                    100:        encounter a 'freeing free inode' panic when writing to the affected
                    101:        filesystem, so it is a good idea to repair the filesystem as soon as
                    102:        possible.  For more details on the fixsb script, see pr install/25138.

                    107:        a newly built kernel with COMPAT_20 set. In addition your libc

1.114     jmc       116:        and the generated Makefile will use the new .uue rules from bsd.file.mk

                    648:           helps to avoid critical errors when upgrading.

                    652:           about one.  It also makes it easier to clean up after
                    653:           a build.  It's also necessary if you want to use the
                    654:           same source tree for multiple machines.
1.123     jmc       655:           To use object directories with build.sh:
                    656:            a) invoke build.sh with the "-M" or "-O" options.
                    657:           To use object directories without using build.sh:
1.1       abs       658:            a) cd /usr/src ; make cleandir
1.2       mrg       659:            b) Add "OBJMACHINE=yes" to /etc/mk.conf
                    660:            c) Add "MKOBJDIRS=yes" to /etc/mk.conf

1.1       abs       664:     Build to a DESTDIR:
1.123     jmc       665:        This helps to keep old installed files (especially libraries)
                    666:           from interfering with the new build.
                    667:           To build to a DESTDIR with build.sh, use the "-D" option.
                    668:           To build to a DESTDIR without using build.sh, set the DESTDIR
                    669:           environment variable before running make build.  It should be
                    670:           set to the pathname of an initially empty directory.
                    671:           Problems: if you do not use build.sh, you might need to
                    672:                update critical utilities without using DESTDIR since
                    673:                nothing is executed from what is installed in DESTDIR.
                    674:                (See critical utils, below.)
1.1       abs       675:     Build often:
                    676:        This keeps critical utilities current enough to not choke

1.123     jmc       678:        date functionality.  If you use build.sh, you should not have
