FreeBSD 7.3-RC1 Available…

The second of the test builds for the 7.3-RELEASE cycle, 7.3-RC1, is now
available for amd64, i386, pc98, and sparc64 architectures. The target
schedule as well as the current status of the release is available here:

http://wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/7.3TODO

The schedule has slipped by about a week but so far it looks like we are
on track for just having one more public test build (7.3-RC2) followed
by the release itself. If you notice problems you can report them
through the normal Gnats PR system or on the freebsd-stable mailing
list.

ISO images for the architectures listed above are available on the FTP
mirror sites. Packages were included for amd64 and i386 architectures
though the list of packages is still preliminary and the packages
themselves were taken from what is currently available in the
packages-7-stable directories on the FTP servers. There have been some
significant changes to the ports that are not incorporated in this set
of pre-built packages (e.g. the default version of perl has been updated
to 5.10).

If you are using csup/cvsup methods to update an older system the branch
tag to use is now RELENG_7_3. Note that due to the mechanism still in
place for exporting the SVN repository to CVS unfortunately the version
numbers for all the files get changed. If you have not looked into it
before check out the -F argument for mergemaster(8).

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running 7.1-RELEASE
7.2-RELEASE, or 7.3-BETA1 can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.3-RC1

During this process, FreeBSD Update 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
continuing.

# shutdown -r now

After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new
userland components, and the system needs to be rebooted again:

# freebsd-update install
# shutdown -r now

Users of earlier FreeBSD releases (FreeBSD 6.x) can also use
freebsd-update to upgrade to FreeBSD 7.3-RC1, but will be prompted to
rebuild all third-party applications (e.g., anything installed from the
ports tree) after the second invocation of “freebsd-update install”, in
order to handle differences in the system libraries between FreeBSD 6.x
and FreeBSD 7.x.
