The second BETA build of the 9.2-RELEASE release cycle is now available
on the FTP servers for the amd64, i386, powerpc64 and sparc64

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 "stable/9".

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

Changes between -BETA1 and -BETA2 include:

    - Fix an interoperability problem between FreeBSD NFS Server
      (version 4) and Linux NFS (version 4) clients.
    - Fix nvme(4) and nvd(4) to support non 512-byte sector sizes.
    - Fix freebsd-update(8) for -BETA2 by removing a file with non-POSIX
      characters in its name.  This file is not needed for FreeBSD
      builds, and caused freebsd-update(8) to error on -BETA1.
    - Fix an XHCI regression.
    - Fix a bug in ipv6_prefix_IF.
    - Fix address range specification with various ifconfig(8) options.
    - Fix Denial of Service vulnerability in named(8).  (SA

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-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

# 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
