FreeBSD 8.1-BETA1 Available

The first of the test builds for the FreeBSD 8.1 release cycle is now
available for amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, pc98, and sparc64
architectures. Files suitable for creating installation media or
doing FTP based installs through the network should be on most of
the FreeBSD mirror sites by now. MD5/SHA256 checksums of the images
are at the bottom of this message.

The ISOs for this build do not include packages other than the docs.
For amd64 and i386 “memstick” images are also available that can be
copied to a USB “memory stick” (also called “thumb drive”) and used
for installs on machines that support booting from that type of media.

The target schedule for the release is available here:

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.1R/schedule.html

and the wiki page tracking the current status is here:

http://wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/8.1TODO

If you find problems you can report them through the normal Gnats
based PR system or here on this mailing list.

If you are updating an already running machine the CVS branch
tag is RELENG_8, or if you prefer SVN use “stable/8″. Updates
done that way will result in a machine that says it is running
“8.1-PRERELEASE”.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running 8.0-RELEASE
can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 8.1-BETA1

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 7.x) can also use
freebsd-update to upgrade to FreeBSD 8.1-BETA1, 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 7.x
and FreeBSD 8.x.
