FreeBSD 7.1-BETA2 Available

As the next step in the release cycle for FreeBSD 7.1 builds for FreeBSD
7.1-BETA2 are now available for testing.

NOTE: If updating from a 7.0 or earlier system due to a change in the
Vendor's drivers certain Intel NICs will now come up as igb(4) instead
of em(4).  We normally try to avoid changes like that in stable branches
but the vendor felt it necessary in order to support the new adapters.
See the UPDATING entry dated 20080811 for details.  There are only 3 PCI
ID's that should have their name changed from em(4) to igb(4): 0x10A7,
0x10A9, and 0x10D6.  You should be able to determine if your card will
change names by running the command "pciconf -l", and for the line
representing your NIC (should be named em on older systems, e.g. em0 or
em1, etc) check the fourth column.  If it says "chip=0x10a7" (or one of
the other two IDs given above) you will have the adapter's name change.

The ISO images and FTP install trees are available on the FreeBSD Mirror
sites. Using the primary site as an example:${arch}/ISO-IMAGES/7.1/

where ${arch} is one of amd64 i386, ia64, pc98, powerpc, or sparc64.
Checksums for the ISO images are at the bottom of this message.  The
amd64 and i386 sets include a *preliminary* set of packages, not what is
expected to be included with the release itself.  The biggest change is
that kde-lite was used this time, while the full kde3 will most likely
be used for the release.

If you would like to do a source-based update to 7.1-BETA2 from an
already installed machine you can update your tree to RELENG_7 using
normal cvsup/csup methods.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases.  Systems running 7.0-RELEASE or
7.1-BETA can upgrade as follows:
# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.1-BETA2

During this process, FreeBSD Update may ask the user to help by merging
some configuration files or by confirming that the automatically performed
merging was done correctly.
# freebsd-update install

The system must be rebooted with the newly installed kernel before continuing.
# shutdown -r now
After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new
userland components, and the system needs to be rebooted again:

# freebsd-update install
# shutdown -r now
Users of Intel network interfaces which are changing their name from "em" to
"igb" should make necessary changes to configuration files BEFORE running
freebsd-update, since otherwise the network interface will not be configured
appropriately after rebooting for the first time.
Users of earlier FreeBSD releases (FreeBSD 6.x) can also use freebsd-update to
upgrade to FreeBSD 7.1, but will be prompted to rebuild all third-party
applications (e.g., anything installed from the ports tree) after the second
invocation of "freebsd-update install", in order to handle differences in the
system libraries between FreeBSD 6.x and FreeBSD 7.x.
