The second release candidate builds of the 9.2-RELEASE release cycle
are now available on the FTP servers for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc,
powerpc64, and sparc64 architectures.

The image checksums follow at the end of this email.

ISO images and, for architectures that support it, the memory stick images
are available here:


(or any of the FreeBSD mirror sites).

If you notice problems you can report them through the normal GNATS PR
system or here on the -stable mailing list.

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing
system use "releng/9.2".

Please be aware that cvsup and CVS are both deprecated, and are not
supported methods of updating the src/ tree.

Changes between -RC1 and -RC2 include:

    o Fix a boot issue caused by some GPT partitioning tools.
    o Fix a regression that caused some PCI disk controllers
      disappearing during boot.
    o Fix the FTP path used to fetch distribution packages when
      installing from the bootonly.iso.
    o Fix a regression in sendmail that caused problems between the
      resolver and Microsoft DNS servers with AAAA lookups.
    o Disable MSIs with Adaptec 2230S and 2820SA (aac(4)).
    o Update FTP mirror list used by bsdinstall(8) and bsdconfig(8).
    o Fix panics caused by early interrupts in igb(4).
    o Fix panics when downing or unloading the mlx(4) driver.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of amd64 and i386
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases.  Systems running earlier
FreeBSD releases can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 9.2-RC2

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

# shutdown -r now

After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new
userland components:

# freebsd-update install

It is recommended to rebuild and install all applications if possible,
especially if upgrading from an earlier FreeBSD release, for example,
FreeBSD 8.x.  Alternatively, the user can install misc/compat8x and
other compatibility libraries, afterwards the system must be rebooted
into the new userland:

# shutdown -r now

Finally, after rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to remove
stale files:

# freebsd-update install
