Greetings all and my apologies for cross posting!
There seems to be a confusion regarding the ABI change in FreeBSD 9
and if this affects the usual upgrade path which includes a full port
The relevant post is here: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=28831
Frankly, I am also confused because I remember a relevant discussion a
few months ago in the lists. Traditionally a major RELEASE upgrade
requires a full ports rebuild, however this time there is no
COMPAT_FREEBSD8 in GENERIC and most upgraded systems seem to be
working fine. On the other hand this is stated in UPDATING:
Bump the shared library version numbers for libraries that
do not use symbol versioning, have changed the ABI compared
to stable/8 and which shared library version was not bumped.
Done as part of 9.0-RELEASE cycle.
Your input would be appreciated!
