The fourth 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.

This is expected to be the final release candidate for the 9.2-RELEASE

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 -RC3 and -RC4 include:

    o Revert the tribute boot loader logo as the default logo.
    o Fix a filesystem bug that would cause removed files to fail to
      dereference vnodes until the filesystem was forcibly unmounted
      and remounted.
    o Fix a rtadvd(8) segmentation fault on service reload.
    o Create and correct ownership and permissions of /var/authpf in the
      standard mtree.
    o Fix a NFS deadlock.
      SIOCSIFNETMASK at the socket layer rather than pass them on to the
      link layer without validation or credential checks.  [SA-13:12]
    o Prevent cross-mount hardlinks between different nullfs mounts of
      the same underlying filesystem.  [SA-13:13]
    o Fix the length calculation for the final block of a sendfile(2)
      transmission which could be tricked into rounding up to the
      nearest page size, leaking up to a page of kernel memory.

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-RC4

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 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
