FreeBSD 3.2 Errata Notes
The file ERRATA.TXT contains post-release ERRATA for 3.2 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 all FreeBSD security advisories, see: ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/ For the latest information. ---- Security Advisories: Current active security advisories for 3.2: None ---- System Update Information: o The compat20 and compat21 distributions install themselves into /usr/lib/compat. The compat20/compat21 distributions are a.out libraries, thus they should live in /usr/lib/compat/aout to match the "ldconfig_paths_aout" configuration in /etc/defaults/rc.conf. Fix: cd /usr/lib/compat mkdir -p aout mv lib*.so.*.* aout o /usr/bin/gdb crashes when debugging core files from static programs Fix: This was corrected in revision 22.214.171.124 of solib.c. Obtain the fixed version via CVSup (see instructions in handbook) or apply the patch from our CVSweb service. o While booting the install floppy, user sees the following message and nothing seems to happen, nor can anything be entered from the keyboard: Keyboard: no Fix: Due to a lack of space, full support for old XT/AT (84-key) keyboards is no longer available in the bootblocks. Some notebook computers may also have this type of keyboard and if you are still using this kind of hardware, you will see the above message about no keyboard being found when you boot from an installation CD-ROM or floppy. As soon as you see the message, hit the space bar and you will see the following prompt: >> FreeBSD/i386 BOOT Default: x:xx(x,x)/boot/loader boot: Then enter `-Dh', and things should proceed normally with your keyboard type. This only happens once at initial installation time and will not be a problem afterwards.
