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.

        !            23:        The uefi bootloader has gained tftp support and needs a clean
        !            24:        build. If you do update builds, manually clean its object
        !            25:        directory by something like:
        !            26:        cd sys/arch/i386/stand/efiboot && make clean
        !            27:
1.300     martin     28: 20190723:
                     29:        The jemalloc allocator in libc is now build without extended
                     30:        debugging (for performance reasons). In update builds make sure
                     31:        to rebuild it completly, by removing all affected object files,
                     32:        including compat builds, something like:
                     33:        cd /usr/obj && find . -type d -name jemalloc|xargs rm -rf
                     34:
1.299     mrg        35: 20190207:
                     36:        GCC 7 switched for many ports.  Update builds are likely to fail.
                     37:
1.298     martin     38: 20180924:
                     39:        A newer OpenSSL version has been imported. If you are doing
                     40:        update builds, make sure to remove all old obj dirs, like:
                     41:        cd /usr/obj && find . -type d -name openssl | xargs rm -rf
                     42:
1.297     joerg      43: 20180717:
                     44:        On aarch64 int64_t and related types have changed from long long
                     45:        to long. This requires recompiling all C++ binaries.
                     46:
1.296     martin     47: 20180713:
                     48:        On amd64 and i386 static binaries are now build position
                     49:        independend. This requires recompilation of all object
                     50:        files used to create the crunched /rescue binary.
                     51:        Clean the rescue directory in your obj directory before
                     52:        doing an update build, otherwise linking will fail.
                     53:
1.293     jakllsch   54: 20180414:
                     55:        Existing binutils was migrated to binutils.old.  Manual
                     56:        removal of tools/binutils objects directory may be required
                     57:        to fix tools build failure.
                     58:
1.292     mrg        59: 20180311:
                     60:        bdftopcf was updated and may need cleaning in the
                     61:        src/external/mit/xorg/tools/bdftopcf subdirectory if there are
                     62:        link errors.
                     63:
1.291     mrg        64: 20180212:
                     65:        between OpenSSL and GCC updates, many things may fail to build.
                     66:        any failure that looks like GCC or openssl is best handled by
                     67:        a clean destdir and objdir.  Full cleandir and destdir deletion
                     68:        is recommended if build failures occur.
                     69:
1.288     martin     70: 20171225:
                     71:        removal of the vadvise syscall requires manual removal of all
                     72:        associated files from the libc build object directory (including
1.289     christos   73:        the .depend files) - a command like:
1.288     martin     74:                cd $OBJ && find . -type d -name libc | xargs rm -rf
1.289     christos   75:        For architectures that support multiple "compat" binary targets,
                     76:        you'll need to cleanup both the regular libc directory and the
1.290     martin     77:        compat ones (the above command will do that).
1.288     martin     78:
1.287     kre        79: 20171010:
                     80:        a change to the build structure of external/bsd/acpica/bin/iasl
                     81:        means that its objdir (or *.d and .depend at least) might need
                     82:        to be manually removed - or a build done once without -u.
                     83:
1.286     mrg        84: 20170822:

                     86:        will break parts of builds related to themselves or GCC, both
                     87:        in the tools and the native section.  Remove all GCC, GMP, MPFR
                     88:        and MPC objdirs or build once without -u.
                     89:
1.285     mrg        90: 20170816:

                     92:        will break parts of builds related to themselves or GCC, both
                     93:        in the tools and the native section.  Remove all GCC, GMP, MPFR

1.284     martin     96: 20170402:
                     97:        a new version of dhcpcd has been imported, which does not support
                     98:        update builds from the previous version. Remove your
                     99:        external/bsd/dhcpcd object dir or build once without -u.
                    100:
1.281     roy       101: 20170211:
                    102:        a new terminfo database has been imported.
                    103:        The structure of it has changed slightly from prior versions and
                    104:        an updated tic tool is required.
                    105:        If you build.sh, don't use -u
                    106:
1.280     kre       107: 20170207:
1.278     kre       108:        various arch dependent libc/exect.S files were removed
1.279     kre       109:        Either remove the obj directories (lib/libc and compat/amd64/i386/lib
                    110:        if it exists) or do a clean build.
                    111:        (This is a bug in the make system, it should be corrected without
                    112:        human intervention, but isn't.)
1.278     kre       113:

                    115:        xinput build options have changed.
                    116:        Remove the obj directory (external/mit/xorg/bin/xinput)
                    117:        if you build.sh -u

                    121:        Remove the file from obj (external/bsd/flex)
                    122:        if you build.sh -u

                    126:        Remove the files from obj (crypto/external/bsd/openssl)
                    127:        if you build.sh -u

                    131:        build infrastructure. When doing a build.sh -u this requires
                    132:        pruning the external/bsd/dhcpcd objdir.

                    136:        ports in using xorg-server 1.18. This requires a clean destdir
                    137:        and a clean objdir.
                    138:
1.272     dholland  139: 20160527:
                    140:        i386 needs a full cleandir or objdir deletion because PIE has
                    141:        been enabled. (see the amd64 entry two down for further info)

1.270     christos  143: 20160418:
                    144:        libedit needs manual removal of all autogenerated files since
1.271     christos  145:        some of them are not autogenerated anymore. Remember that there
                    146:        might be two copies of libedit if your platform builds "compat".
1.270     christos  147:
1.268     riastrad  148: 20160410:
                    149:        amd64 needs full "make cleandir" or deletion of objdir now that
                    150:        PIE has been enabled for amd64.  PIE, or position-independent
                    151:        executables, means all code, including executables and not just
                    152:        shared libraries, is position-independent and hence able to be
                    153:        relocated by ASLR, address space layout randomization.
                    154:
                    155:        The change was made in Makefile variables for compiler and
                    156:        linker flags, for which make(1) does not record dependencies,
                    157:        hence it is unable to detect that all .o files need rebuilding.
                    158:
                    159:        Partial rebuilds with some modified source files will likely
                    160:        fail when linking executables, since the linker refuses to mix
                    161:        position-independent code with position-dependent code in
                    162:        position-independent executables:

                    167:        Ports switching to GCC 5.3 will need a full "make cleandir".
1.269     dholland  168:        Some people have found that cleandir is not sufficient, so if
                    169:        in doubt delete the entire object directory tree for gcc.
1.267     mrg       170:
1.266     aymeric   171: 20160306:
1.265     aymeric   172:        NetBSD's regexp implementation is now part of libnbcompat.
                    173:        Nblex, nbm4, nbpax, nbsed use it and they may crash on

                    175:        while they included a non-NetBSD regex.h.
                    176:        In any case, you should "make cleandir" at least these tools
                    177:        before updating your toolchain.

                    180:        Dtrace has been enabled by default on some architectures.
                    181:        When doing an update build, make sure to clean the etc/mtree
                    182:        object directory before starting the build - otherwise the
                    183:        needed directories in destdir will not be created.
                    184:        An easy way to do this is:

                    199:        do a make cleandir in src/tools/lint1 and
