FreeBSD 8.2/7.4-BETA1 Available…

The first of the test builds for the 8.2/7.4 Release Cycle is
now available for amd64, i386, ia64, 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. 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 available that
can be copied to a USB “memory stick” and used for installs on
machines that support booting from that type of media.

The target schedule for the releases is available here:

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.2R/schedule.html
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/7.4R/schedule.html

and the wiki pages tracking the current status of the releases
are:

http://wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/8.2TODO
http://wiki.freebsd.org/Releng/7.4TODO

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 for 8.2-BETA1 is RELENG_8, for 7.4-BETA1 it is RELENG_7.
If you prefer SVN use “stable/8″ or “stable/7″. Updates done
this way will result in a machine that says it is running
“8.2-PRERELEASE” or “7.4-PRERELEASE”.

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of i386 and amd64
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running 8.0-RELEASE
or 8.1-RELEASE can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 8.2-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 8.2-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. Substitute “7.4-BETA1″ for “8.2-BETA1″ in the above
instructions if you are targeting 7.4-BETA1 instead.
