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 posix_fadvise system call has been changed from an assembly
        !            21:        stub, to a c file that calls an assembly stub. You need to
        !            22:        'rm -f posix_fadvise.* .depend' in the libc build directory to
        !            23:        avoid using the old assembly stub.

                     26:        The acpiec(4) driver has been split into two attachments. If you
                     27:        get ACPI errors before the attachment, please update your kernel
                     28:        configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
                     29:
                     30: 20071115:
                     31:        The it(4) driver has been renamed to itesio(4) and the old port
                     32:        argument specified in the kernel configuration file is not valid
                     33:        anymore. The itesio(4) driver now uses the Super I/O address port
                     34:        rather than the EC address port. Please update your kernel
                     35:        configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
                     36:
1.163.4.1  matt       37: 20071028:
                     38:        The pccons(4) driver has been removed from the NetBSD/shark port.
                     39:        You need to update any custom kernel configuration file you have
                     40:        to remove any references to pccons (which includes removing the
                     41:        now useless XSERVER option) and replace them with the correct
                     42:        entries for the wscons driver.  See the GENERIC configuration file
                     43:        for more details.

                     46:        A latent bug in dhclient/dhcpd that caused it to be unable to
                     47:        enumerate interfaces was fixed.  The bug began to cause
                     48:        problems after 20070911 when the kernel's SIOCGIFCONF
                     49:        implementation was repaired.  From 20070529 to 20070911 racoon
                     50:        could not enumerate interfaces.  (These are noted because
                     51:        normal kernel/userspace version matching hygiene is not
                     52:        sufficient to avoid this problem.)  Ensure that both kernel
                     53:        and userland are from after 20070913.

1.163     joerg      55: 20070703:
                     56:        nbinstall has been renamed as it calls the target specific and
                     57:        the logic to pass down STRIP from mk been removed.  This forces
                     58:        a re-installation of tools.

                     61:        The way OS emulations lookup filenames inside the emulation root
                     62:        has been changed.  Rather than modify the pathname (and copy back
                     63:        to userspace) namei() and lookup() directly check the emulation
                     64:        root. One side effect is that absolute symlinks inside the emulated
1.163.4.2  matt       65:        root file system will be relative to that file system - unless they
1.161     dsl        66:        start /../ this is useful when the emulated root is a real install
                     67:        that has such links.
                     68:        This might affect symlinks that have been added to reference outside
                     69:        the emulated root.

                     73:        instead. See the GENERIC32_IP3x kernel configuration for an
                     74:        example.

                     78:         on many platforms due to incorrect flags settings.  If you
                     79:         updated and built after about 20070315, do "nbmake-$arch

                     93:         was merged to NetBSD-current.  If you boot with a new
                     94:         kernel (version 4.99.10), then you also need a new pthread
                     95:         library (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.7).  If you boot with
                     96:         an old kernel, then you need the old pthread library
                     97:         (/usr/lib/libpthread.so.0.6).  Provided you keep the kernel and
                     98:         the pthread library in sync, old threaded applications should
                     99:         continue to work with an old or new kernel.  Note that named(8)
