FreeBSD 3.0 Errata Notes
The file ERRATA.TXT contains post-release ERRATA for 3.0 and should always be considered the definitive place to look *first* before reporting a problem with this release. This file will also be periodically updated as new issues are reported so even if you've checked this file recently, check it again before filing a bug report. Any changes to this file are also automatically emailed to: freebsd-stable@FreeBSD.org For 3.0 security advisories, see: ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/ For the latest information. ---- Security Advisories: Current active security advisories for 3.0: 1 o SA-98:08: IP fragmentation denial of service Fix: Update to 3.0-current or apply patch supplied with advisory 98:08 in: ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/advisories/FreeBSD-SA-98:08.fragment.asc ---- System Update Information: o The GPL_MATH_EMULATE kernel option causes a fatal trap during system startup. Fix: Replace the GPL_MATH_EMULATE option with the default math emulation option MATH_EMULATE. This will only affect users who have modified their kernel configuration file. The problem is corrected in revision 1.16 of the file /usr/src/sys/gnu/i386/fpemul/fpu_entry.c. o DOS partition installs fail to find the installation bits. Fix: Rename C:\FREEBSD to C:\3.0-RELEASE and retry the installation. The naming syntax was changed to make DOS more like the other types of installation media but the docs on DOS installation were not updated properly to reflect this. The current sysinstall now accepts both locations, as it should have to begin with.
