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.

                     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:        Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
        !            21:        src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not
        !            22:        work properly yet as the /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
        !            23:        subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
        !            24:        be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.

                     27:        Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this
                     28:        can cause autoconf problems during the tool build for people
                     29:        who fail to clean out their tools objects properly. If you
                     30:        note messages about stpcpy, stpncpy or strnlen accompanying a
                     31:        failure during the tool build, clean out all your tools
                     32:        objects and start again.

1.194     mrg        34: 20090325:
                     35:        The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
                     36:        cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
                     37:

1.193     skrll      39:        The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You need to
                     40:        'rm -f __posix_fadvise50.*' in the libc build directory to avoid using
1.192     skrll      41:        the old assembly stub.

                     44:        pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
                     45:        detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
                     46:        ``pkg_admin rebuild''.

                     49:        time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:
                     50:        1. Make sure your kernel has COMPAT_50 in it. Build and install.
1.188     christos   51:           This is needed even in the MODULAR kernel because there is
                     52:           conditionally compiled code in rtsock.c.
1.184     christos   53:        2. make sure build.sh completes and the binaries in a chroot work
                     54:           before installing.
                     55:        3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and
1.187     dholland   56:           your build breaks in the middle, don't despair. Make sure headers
1.184     christos   57:           are installed properly, and start building libraries first libc
                     58:           and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
                     59:           libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
                     60:           the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.
                     61:        4. If you compile packages and you notice link time warnings,
1.189     hubertf    62:           rebuild the required packages to update their shared libraries.
                     63:           Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages
                     64:           that depend on it.
1.186     christos   65:        5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
                     66:           will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
1.190     apb        67:        6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
                     68:           lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
                     69:           for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
                     70:           upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
                     71:           boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
                     72:           newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
                     73:           files manually.
                     74:        7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
                     75:           accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
                     76:           removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
                     77:           /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
                     78:           the file.
1.196     dholland   79:        8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
                     80:           disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
                     81:           using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
                     82:           rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.

                     85:        config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
                     86:        swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
                     87:        (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
                     88:        config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
                     89:        kernels.

1.181     cube       91: 20081205:
                     92:        If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
                     93:        /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
                     94:        set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.

1.182     tsutsui    97:        On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
1.180     wiz        98:        file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
                     99:        Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
1.179     tsutsui   100:        following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
                    101:
                    102:        - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules
                    103:
                    104:        - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
1.180     wiz       105:          for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
1.179     tsutsui   106:
1.180     wiz       107:        If you have to load your kernel from a file system which is not of
                    108:        the same type as the root file system, you have to load the necessary
                    109:        file system module manually on the boot prompt or in the boot.cfg file.

                    112:        If you built and installed a libc from sources between
                    113:        2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
                    114:        which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
                    115:        Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
1.180     wiz       116:        needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
1.178     lukem     117:          $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)

1.177     christos  119: 20080813:
                    120:        MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
                    121:        about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.

                    125:        time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
                    126:        and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you

1.176     simonb    128:        especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
                    129:        also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You
                    130:        can use fsck_ffs -c 4 to update the superblock format.
