If you wish to continue using the linux-f10 compat ports,<br />add compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16 to your local sysctl.conf. Users are<br />encouraged to update their linux-compat packages to linux-c6 during<br />their next update cycle. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/75ad4c02c83979c1dc30 2014-07-29T23:59:59Z The ofwfb driver, used to provide a graphics console on PowerPC when<br />using vt(4), no longer allows mmap() of all of physical memory. This<br />will prevent Xorg on PowerPC with some ATI graphics cards from<br />initializing properly unless x11-servers/xorg-server is updated to<br />1.12.4_8 or newer. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/9aff1edadf80341e5eb4 2014-07-23T23:59:59Z The xdev targets have been converted to using TARGET and<br />TARGET_ARCH instead of XDEV and XDEV_ARCH. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/05216ea672c73005faad 2014-07-19T23:59:59Z The default unbound configuration has been modified to address<br />issues with reverse lookups on networks that use private<br />address ranges. If you use the local_unbound service, run<br />"service local_unbound setup" as root to regenerate your<br />configuration, then "service local_unbound reload" to load the<br />new configuration. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/268c778f2cf3dffba83a 2014-07-09T23:59:59Z The GNU texinfo and GNU info pages are not built and installed<br />anymore, WITH_INFO knob has been added to allow to built and install<br />them again. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/605ae24ad0d98cec6740 2014-07-08T23:59:59Z The GNU readline library is now an INTERNALLIB - that is, it is<br />statically linked into consumers (GDB and variants) in the base<br />system, and the shared library is no longer installed. The<br />devel/readline port is available for third party software that<br />requires readline. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/44da59e832d43ca8f3b1 2014-07-02T23:59:59Z The Itanium architecture (ia64) has been removed from the list of<br />known architectures. This is the first step in the removal of the<br />architecture. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/2f87195e730f0d6261be 2014-07-01T23:59:59Z Commit r268115 has added NFSv4.1 server support, merged from<br />projects/nfsv4.1-server. Since this includes changes to the<br />internal interfaces between the NFS related modules, a full<br />build of the kernel and modules will be necessary.<br />__FreeBSD_version has been bumped. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/98057b6ff434b299ab7c 2014-06-29T23:59:59Z The WITHOUT_VT_SUPPORT kernel config knob has been renamed<br />WITHOUT_VT. (The other _SUPPORT knobs have a consistent meaning<br />which differs from the behaviour controlled by this knob.) freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/b8e34ab5a5791ba0691b 2014-06-19T23:59:59Z Maximal length of the serial number in CTL was increased from 16 to<br />64 chars, that breaks ABI. All CTL-related tools, such as ctladm<br />and ctld, need to be rebuilt to work with a new kernel. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/bcd55f8c6f19a37c6593 2014-06-06T23:59:59Z The libatf-c and libatf-c++ major versions were downgraded to 0 and<br />1 respectively to match the upstream numbers. They were out of<br />sync because, when they were originally added to FreeBSD, the<br />upstream versions were not respected. These libraries are private<br />and not yet built by default, so renumbering them should be a<br />non-issue. However, unclean source trees will yield broken test<br />programs once the operator executes "make delete-old-libs" after a<br />"make installworld".<br /><br />If you are using WITH_TESTS=yes (not the default), wipe the object<br />tree and rebuild from scratch to prevent spurious test failures.<br />This is only needed once: the old, misnumbered libraries have been<br />added to OptionalObsoleteFiles.inc so they will be removed during a<br />clean upgrade. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/b5480f8a696e1e8cdbc5 2014-06-06T23:59:59Z The libatf-c and libatf-c++ major versions were downgraded to 0 and<br />1 respectively to match the upstream numbers.

Already-built shell test programs will keep the<br />path to the old binary so they will break after "make delete-old"<br />is run.<br /><br />If you are using WITH_TESTS=yes (not the default), wipe the object<br />tree and rebuild from scratch to prevent spurious test failures.<br />This is only needed once: the misnumbered libraries and misplaced<br />binaries have been added to OptionalObsoleteFiles.inc so they will<br />be removed during a clean upgrade. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/dc3dfff980b7a0024caf 2014-05-12T23:59:59Z Clang and llvm have been upgraded to 3.4.1 release. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/041b9772e53c3fbc33a7 2014-05-08T23:59:59Z We bogusly installed src.opts.mk in /usr/share/mk. This file should<br />be removed to avoid issues in the future (and has been added to<br />ObsoleteFiles.inc). freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/a9589d3732219d91e78e 2014-05-05T23:59:59Z /etc/src.conf now affects only builds of the FreeBSD src tree. In the<br />past, it affected all builds that used the bsd.*.mk files. The old<br />behavior was a bug, but people may have relied upon it. To get this<br />behavior back, you can .include /etc/src.conf from /etc/make.conf<br />(which is still global and isn't changed). This also changes the<br />behavior of incremental builds inside the tree of individual<br />directories. Set MAKESYSPATH to "/usr/src/share/mk" to do that.<br />Although this has survived make universe and some upgrade scenarios,<br />other upgrade scenarios may have broken. At least one form of<br />temporary breakage was fixed with MAKESYSPATH settings for buildworld<br />as well...<br /><br />One side effect of all this cleaning up is that bsd.compiler.mk<br />is no longer implicitly included by bsd.own.mk. If you wish to<br />use COMPILER_TYPE, you must now explicitly include bsd.compiler.mk<br />as well. freebsd_updating http://www.fbsdmon.org/feed/freebsd_updating/c2b64db0b0de06034875 2014-05-05T23:59:59Z /etc/src.conf now affects only builds of the FreeBSD src tree.

It has been obsolete for<br />a decade. Please move to using WITH_HESIOD instead or your builds<br />will silently lack HESIOD.
