The ino64 project was committed to src last week with UPDATING notes added shortly thereafter .
As some people have been tripped up by the ino64 change I want to emphasize again that the upgrade procedure described in UPDATING should be followed exactly. The reboot after installing the new ino64 kernel, and the addition of COMPAT_FREEBSD11 to custom kernel configurations, are crucial steps. Note that this upgrade is just the usual standard, documented procedure and is required whenever new syscalls or other forwards-incompatible changes are introduced. Prior to ino64 we have had a period without any significant Application Binary Interface (ABI) or Kernel Binary Interface (KBI) changes and it was possible to take shortcuts with the upgrade procedure. The ino64 change is backwards-compatible but not forwards-compatible and shortcuts must not be taken. (As a general rule, it is safest to always use the full procedure unless you follow the commit mailing list and are aware of which changes are not foward-compatible.) In addition, some users have created a libarchive.so.6 symlink to libarchive.so.7, in an attempt to run older binaries on a fresh post- ino64 install. Do not do this: libarchive.so.6 and libarchive.so.7 have an incompatible ABI and this will result in incorrect and unpredictable behaviour. The most recent -CURRENT package set was built prior to the ino64 commit, and thus will not work on a fresh ino64 install or snapshot image. Until the next package set is available please build from ports, or use Poudriere to build your own package set. Most ports with a dependency on ino64 have now been patched. The remaining ports which still need a change for ino64 are: Port Responsible for # Skipped -------------------------- ---------------------------- lang/gcc6-aux 54 sysutils/py-psutil 13 (fix in review D10801) devel/llvm38 6 sysutils/py-psutil121 3 devel/radare2 0 emulators/qemu-user-static 0 lang/ccl 0 lang/dmd2 0 lang/gcc5-aux 0 lang/modula3 0 lang/rust-nightly 0 lang/twelf 0 lang/urweb 0 net-mgmt/netdata 0  https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/318736  https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/318737  https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/318757  https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/318758  https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/318792 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
