FreeBSD 4.0 Errata Notes
If you read no other documentation before installing this version of FreeBSD, you should at least by all means *READ THE ERRATA* for this release so that you don't stumble over problems which have already been found and fixed. This ERRATA.TXT file is obviously already out of date by definition, but other copies are kept updated on the net and should be consulted as the "current errata" for your release. These other copies of the errata are located at: 1. http://www.FreeBSD.org/releases/ 2. ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/<your-release>/ERRATA.TXT (and any sites which keep up-to-date mirrors of this location). Any changes to this file are also automatically emailed to: freebsd-current@FreeBSD.org For all FreeBSD security advisories, see: http://www.FreeBSD.org/security/ for the latest security incident information. ---- Security Advisories: Current active security advisories: None ---- System Update Information: The tcpdump binary in the bin distribution is erroneously linked against the libcrypto.so library, which is only found in the separate crypto distribution. Therefore, if you only install the bin distribution without the crypto distribution, tcpdump will not work as installed. Fix: Download a new tcpdump binary from the following location: http://people.FreeBSD.org/~kris/4.0R/i386/tcpdump (i386) http://people.FreeBSD.org/~kris/4.0R/alpha/tcpdump (alpha) The MD5 checksum of this file is: i386 version: MD5 (tcpdump) = 0b3d32b367e7312d546ccae8f1824391 alpha version: MD5 (tcpdump) = 2d113fa4c38c8a0299d558acb5c6ad57 To verify the checksum of your downloaded copy, perform the following command: /sbin/md5 /path/to/downloaded/tcpdump and compare with the above. o Tool source code not installed by install.sh (outside of sysinstall) If you are attempting to extract the full source code from the CDROM (outside of the sysinstall program), you will end up missing the tool source code. Fix: If you are running install.sh from /cdrom/src, you will need to also run: cat stool.?? | tar --unlink -xpzf - -C /usr/src to have the tool sources (/usr/src/tools hierarchy) installed. These are required to successfully build world.
