FreeBSD 10.0-RC2 Now Available

Mon Dec 16 15:45:03 UTC 2013

The second RC build of the 10.0-RELEASE release cycle is 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 the "releng/10.0" branch.

Important note to freebsd-update(8) users:  Please be sure to follow the
instructions in the following FreeBSD Errata Notices before upgrading
the system to 10.0-RC2:

  - EN-13:04.freebsd-update:

  - EN-13:05.freebsd-update:

Note to those downloading dvd1.iso:

    - While packages are available on dvd1.iso, the version of
      bsdconfig(8) provided with 10.0-RC2 will not be able to install
      them by default.  This will be fixed for 10.0-RC3.
    - As a workaround for installing packages from the dvd, create
      a directory to serve as the temporary pkg(8) repository
      configuration directory, and fetch the configuration file that
      will be included on the next set of -RC builds:

	# mkdir -p /tmp/pkgrepo
	# fetch -o /tmp/pkgrepo/FreeBSD_install_cdrom.conf \

    - Mount the dvd to the '/dist' directory:

	# mkdir -p /dist
	# mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0 /dist

    - To install a package, run:

	# env REPOS_DIR=/tmp/pkgrepo pkg install <foo>

    - To view the list of available packages on the DVD, run:

	# env REPOS_DIR=/tmp/pkgrepo pkg rquery "%n"

Pre-installed virtual machine images for 10.0-RC2 are also available
for amd64 and i386 architectures.

The images are located under the 'snapshots' directory on FTP, here:

The disk images are available in both QCOW2, VHD, and VMDK format.  The
image download size is approximately 135 MB, which decompress to a 20GB
sparse image.

The partition layout is:

    - 512k - freebsd-boot GPT partition type (bootfs GPT label)
    - 1GB  - freebsd-swap GPT partition type (swapfs GPT label)
    - ~17GB - freebsd-ufs GPT partition type (rootfs GPT label)

Changes between -RC1 and -RC2 include:

    - Fix a crash when attempting to use a non-disk device as an iSCSI
    - Fix handling of empty iSCSI authentication groups.
    - Fix a regression in bsdinstall(8) that prevented the system from
      decrypting GELI providers when installing ZFS on GELI.
    - Several Radeon KMS bug fixes.
    - Several wireless bug fixes.
    - Several clang bug fixes.

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 10.0-RC2

During this process, freebsd-update(8) 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 9.x.  Alternatively, the user can install misc/compat9x 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
