FreeBSD 10.1-RC2 Now Available


The second RC build of the 10.1-RELEASE release cycle is now available
on the FTP servers for the amd64, armv6, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64
and sparc64 architectures.

The image checksums follow at the end of this email.

Installer images and memory stick images are available here:

    ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/ISO-IMAGES/10.1/

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 "releng/10.1" branch.

A list of changes since 10.0-RELEASE are available here:

    https://www.freebsd.org/releases/10.1R/relnotes.html

Important note to ZFS users on the i386 architecture:  A regression has
been discovered that affects multi-disk (mirror, raidz-1, raidz-2, etc.)
installations that may cause a kernel panic on boot.  If using
a multi-disk ZFS setup, adding 'options KSTACK_PAGES=4' is suspected to
resolve the problem.  Please *do* *not* upgrade your system with
freebsd-update(8) if using a multi-disk ZFS setup, since this will
override the kernel configuration with the GENERIC kernel.

Note to consumers of the i386 DVD installer:  As result of a package

Server insists on wrong hostname

Hi,

I am operating a FreeBSD 10.0-STABLE server and once upon a time I
decided to change its hostname. I edited it in /etc/rc.conf, /etc/hosts
and /etc/defaults/rc.conf. I also set it by invoking `sudo hostname`,
but every time I restart it, it aquires the old name again. I fail to
see, where that setting comes from. Can any of you help me out with
that? Thanks in advance.

GPT partitions not 4k aligned by 10.1-RC1 installer

Today I did a quick install of a 10.1-RC1 from an installation
ISO DVD. Apart from choosing a ZFS filesystem, other options were
left to their default. In particular, the align-to-4k ZFS options
was left enabled.

Guess what, the ZFS really ended up with ashift 12,
but neither the swap nor the zfs partition is 4k aligned:

# gpart show /dev/ada0
=>       34  625142381  ada0  GPT  (298G)
          34       1024     1  freebsd-boot  (512K)
        1058    8388608     2  freebsd-swap  (4.0G)
     8389666  616752749     3  freebsd-zfs  (294G)

I find this unacceptable and surprising,
regardless of what the underlying media is.

Now that even Windows is aligning partitions to 1 MiB,
and SSD erase block is often cited as 1 MiB ...

Worried about space waste of half of one JPG photo?

zfs pool import hangs on [tx->tx_sync_done_cv]

In short, after upgrading to 10.1-BETA3 or -RC1 I ended up with several
zfs pools that can no longer be imported. The zpool import command
(with no arguments) does show all available pools, but trying to
import one just hangs and the command cannot be aborted, although
the rest of the system is still alive and fine:

# zpool import -f <mypool>

Typing ^T just shows an idle process, waiting on [tx->tx_sync_done_cv]:

load: 0.20  cmd: zpool 939 [tx->tx_sync_done_cv] 5723.65r 0.01u 0.02s 0%

[PATCH] Lock scd(4): test or the driver will be removed

This patch adds locking to scd(4) and marks it MPSAFE.  It also uses bus_*() 
instead of bus_space_*().  The patch is against HEAD but probably applies to 9 
and 10 as well.

http://people.freebsd.org/~jhb/patches/scd_locking.patch

Note that this driver is using a deprecated API that will be removed in 11.  
If no one tests updates to this driver then it is not feasible to continue 
maintaining it in the tree.  In that case, it will be removed from HEAD one 
month from today.

[PATCH] Fix si(4) to use bus_space: test or the driver will be removed

This patch fixes the si(4) driver to use the bus_space methods to access 
memory and I/O resources instead of directly calling inb()/outb() and using 
rman_get_virtual().  The patch is against HEAD but probably applies to 9 and 
10 as well.

http://people.freebsd.org/~jhb/patches/si_bus_space.patch

If no one tests updates to this driver then it is not feasible to continue 
maintaining it in the tree.  In that case, it will be removed from HEAD one 
month from today.

This is exactly what I see with my oldish Intel DP965LT main board. 
Installation went perfect up to 9.2, but for later releases I have to issue

/sbin/gpart set -a active ada0

either from a shell before rebooting the fresh installation or after 
rebooting single user from the install media.

I also hear from several acquaintances (potential "switchers"), often 
with similar Intel (or Foxconn) boards that their fresh install of 
FreeBSD "does not even boot". On the other hand my even older Asus 
NL4VM-DH board does not have this issue (It does complain about being 
unable to read the backup GPT header, but that is another issue.)

If it is not possible to have the installer set the active flag when a 
BIOS is detected, the remedy using gpart could at least be documented in 
the installation notes, maybe even in the handbook.
