FreeBSD 9.3 Beta 3
FreeBSD è un avanzato sistema operativo per moderne piattaforme server, desktop, ed embedded. Il codice di FreeBSD ha subito più di trent´anni di continui sviluppi, miglioramenti, e ottimizzazioni.

Note di rilascio

The third BETA build of the 9.3-RELEASE release cycle is now available
on the FTP servers for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64 and
sparc64 architectures.

This is expected to be the final -BETA build of the 9.3-RELEASE cycle.

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 Bugzilla PR
system or on the -stable mailing list.

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing
system, use the "stable/9" branch.

A list of changes since 9.2-RELEASE are available on the stable/9
release notes page here:

Pre-installed virtual machine images for 9.3-BETA3 are also available
for amd64 and i386 architectures.

The images are located under the ´snapshots´ directory on FTP, here:

The disk images are available in QCOW2, VHD, VMDK, and raw disk image
formats. The image download size is approximately 135 MB, which
decompress to a 20GB sparse image.

The partition layout is:

. 512k - freebsd-boot GPT partition type (bootfs GPT label)
. 1GB - freebsd-swap GPT partition type (swapfs GPT label)
. ~17GB - freebsd-ufs GPT partition type (rootfs GPT label)

Changes between 9.3-BETA2 and 9.3-BETA3 include:

o A new ttys(5) flag, onifconsole, has been added, which activates
ttyu0 if the device is an active kernel console.

o The NFSv4 server now allows creating a hard link to a symbolic
link, as was allowed in NFSv3.

o OpenSSL has been updated to 0.9.8za.

o A deadlock caused by incorrect reference counts has been fixed in
the usb(4) driver.

o The arc4random(3) library has been updated to match that in

o The amount of data collected by hwpmc(4) has been increased to
work with modern processors and available RAM.

o A new pmcstat(8) flag, ´-l´, has been added, which ends event
collection after the specified number of seconds.

Note to consumers of the dvd1.iso image: The version of bsdconfig(8) in
the stable/9 branch does not yet support pkg(7)-format packages. While
there are packages available on the dvd1.iso image, they cannot yet be
installed with bsdconfig(8). They can be installed manually, however.

To install packages from the dvd1.iso installer, create and mount the
/dist directory:

# mkdir -p /dist
# mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0 /dist

Next, install pkg(8) from the DVD:

# env REPOS_DIR=/dist/packages/repos
pkg add /dist/packages/freebsd:9:*:*/All/pkg-*.txz

At this point, pkg-install(8) can be used to install additional packages
from the DVD. Please note, the REPOS_DIR environment variable should be
used each time using the DVD as the package repository, otherwise
conflicts with packages from the upstream mirrors may occur when they
are fetched. For example, to install the Subversion, Gnome, and Xorg,

# env REPOS_DIR=/dist/packages/repos
pkg install subversion gnome2 xorg

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 9.3-BETA3

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
