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:        If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
        !            21:        /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc

                     25:        If you built and installed a libc from sources between
                     26:        2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
                     27:        which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
                     28:        Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
                     29:        needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g:
                     30:          $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)

                     33:        MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
                     34:        about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.

                     38:        time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
                     39:        and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
                     40:        don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
1.176     simonb     41:        especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
                     42:        also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You
                     43:        can use fsck_ffs -c 4 to update the superblock format.

                     67:        ${DESTDIR}/stand/<arch>/ did not exist.  A fix for this

                     77:        stub, to a c file that calls an assembly stub. You need to

                     95:        You need to update any custom kernel configuration file you have
                     96:        to remove any references to pccons (which includes removing the
                     97:        now useless XSERVER option) and replace them with the correct

                    103:        enumerate interfaces was fixed.  The bug began to cause
                    104:        problems after 20070911 when the kernel's SIOCGIFCONF
                    105:        implementation was repaired.  From 20070529 to 20070911 racoon

                    108:        sufficient to avoid this problem.)  Ensure that both kernel

                    211:           about one.  It also makes it easier to clean up after
                    212:           a build.  It's also necessary if you want to use the
                    213:           same source tree for multiple machines.
1.123     jmc       214:           To use object directories with build.sh:
                    215:            a) invoke build.sh with the "-M" or "-O" options.
                    216:           To use object directories without using build.sh:

1.1       abs       223:     Build to a DESTDIR:
1.123     jmc       224:        This helps to keep old installed files (especially libraries)
                    225:           from interfering with the new build.
                    226:           To build to a DESTDIR with build.sh, use the "-D" option.
                    227:           To build to a DESTDIR without using build.sh, set the DESTDIR
                    228:           environment variable before running make build.  It should be
                    229:           set to the pathname of an initially empty directory.
                    230:           Problems: if you do not use build.sh, you might need to
                    231:                update critical utilities without using DESTDIR since
                    232:                nothing is executed from what is installed in DESTDIR.
                    233:                (See critical utils, below.)
1.1       abs       234:     Build often:

1.123     jmc       237:        date functionality.  If you use build.sh, you should not have
