---- Security Advisories:
Current active security advisories for 2.2.7: None
---- System Update Information:
o XFree86: The XF86Setup utility sometimes fails with an XIO
error (visible on the 2nd VTY) rather than starting properly if you
run it during system installation time. This is not a new bug and
has been seen in previous releases of FreeBSD, but it seems to happen
far more reliably with 2.2.7 now (for some as yet unknown reason).
Fix: Should this happen to you, run /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86Setup by hand
after the system comes up off the hard disk for the first time.
For some reason, when not run off the boot floppy or CD, it works
perfectly (making this one somewhat more difficult to debug).
o Release notes state that Texas Instruments ThunderLAN PCI NICs are
supported in 2.2.7.
Fix: This was an embarrassing mis-merge from the 3.0 release notes and,
indeed, those cards are only supported in 3.0-current. Please ignore
this section of the release notes and any other docs which claim that
the ThunderLAN NICs are supported in 2.2.7.
o rshd was broken during -Wall cleanup, as noted in PR#7500
Fix: This was fixed in the 2.2-stable branch as of 1998/07/24 04:32:21
in revision 126.96.36.199 of /usr/src/libexec/rshd/rshd.c. Obtain the
fixed version via CVSup (see instructions in handbook or simply
and follow the instructions) or get it from FTP at:
