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.

1.123     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.

                     25:        time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:
                     26:        1. Make sure your kernel has COMPAT_50 in it. Build and install.
1.188     christos   27:           This is needed even in the MODULAR kernel because there is
                     28:           conditionally compiled code in rtsock.c.
1.184     christos   29:        2. make sure build.sh completes and the binaries in a chroot work
                     30:           before installing.
                     31:        3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and
1.187     dholland   32:           your build breaks in the middle, don't despair. Make sure headers
1.184     christos   33:           are installed properly, and start building libraries first libc
                     34:           and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
                     35:           libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
                     36:           the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.
                     37:        4. If you compile packages and you notice link time warnings,
1.189     hubertf    38:           rebuild the required packages to update their shared libraries.
                     39:           Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages
                     40:           that depend on it.
1.186     christos   41:        5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
                     42:           will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
1.190     apb        43:        6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
                     44:           lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
                     45:           for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
                     46:           upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
                     47:           boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
                     48:           newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
                     49:           files manually.
                     50:        7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
                     51:           accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
                     52:           removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
                     53:           /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
                     54:           the file.

                     58:        swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
                     59:        (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
                     60:        config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
                     61:        kernels.

                     65:        /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
                     66:        set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.

                     73:

                     76:        - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
1.180     wiz        77:          for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
1.179     tsutsui    78:
1.180     wiz        79:        If you have to load your kernel from a file system which is not of
                     80:        the same type as the root file system, you have to load the necessary
                     81:        file system module manually on the boot prompt or in the boot.cfg file.

1.180     wiz        88:        needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:

                     98:        and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you

                    101:        also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You
