Default 5.8 Issues

Questions regarding the latest release:

1) There are 2 compressed src files:
Quote:
cd-src.tar.gz 13-Oct-2015 19:12 140M

and

src.tar.gz 13-Oct-2015 19:12 121M
The cd-src.tar.gz file is described as a fix for time/date stamps
Quote:
006: RELEASE CD ISSUE: Oct 18, 2015 All architectures
The "src.tar.gz" file on the source tree was created on the wrong day, and does not match the 5.8 release builds.
A replacement file is available in the 5.8 release directory with the name cd-src.tar.gz; due to size of the file, check local mirrors also.
But the size of cd-src.tar.gz (140M) is significantly larger than src.tar.gz (121M).

I interpret this to mean that purchasers of the CD sets should use cd-src.tar.gz but what about the smaller src.tar.gz on the ftp mirrors?
Anyone have clarification?
2. Patch 007 seems to have dropped the leading "/"
Quote:
And then rebuild and install libcrypto:
cd src/lib/libcrypto
make obj
make depend
make
make install
Shouldn't it be /usr/src/lib/libcrypto ? Again clarification would be appreciated. I can temporarily work around the first 2 issues by using M:tier's openup utility although my sys/src will not be patched.

3. Already posted in the howto is that mpd in the 5.8 release is broken for streaming internet radio stations (out of bounds error). A fix is being looked into and I will post either the fix or a command line work around to stream internet radio stations.

1. Source code

The packaging of the -release src directory tarballs on the file servers is split. Bifurcated. Cut in twain.

The kernel source code under src/sys is packaged in one tarball, the userland source code (the rest of src) is packaged in another.

However, the CD sources are not split. So the "cd-*" tarball available on the servers is the complete src tree.

2. Instructions for patch 007

You're correct, there is a symbolic link in the root directory, /sys, which points to /usr/src/sys. You may either use the symbolic link, or change to that directory ... directly.

3. mpd

It's a third party application, and not built-in. While I'm not certain what howto you refer to, the mpd port maintainer's name and Email address are in the ports tree. If you have the ports tree available, you can see his name and Email address with:
Code:
$ cd /usr/ports/audio/mpd
$ make show=MAINTAINER
and if you don't have the tree installed, you can see the $MAINTAINER variable in the port's Makefile available from the CVS web portal here, or, just use $ pkg_info mpd.

I'm sure David will be willing to offer whatever support he can to you.

And ... I just noticed you've already reported the mpd issue and have a proposed fix available.

And, this morning I was reviewing commits to the ports tree and saw your name mentioned in the commit log for mpd. Great job!

Another 5.8 issue: If you access your digital camera via graphics/libgphoto2 it shipped with a broken libusb1. The fix is to apply this Makefile, to build your own port. I have i386/amd64 binary packages - pm me.

Have you discussed with Antoine? It appears it would only need to be tagged for -stable if it unbreaks the -release package.

Antoine pointed me to the patch.

It does unbreak the libgphoto2 package, at least with my Canon A590IS. I'm not sure why it did not get tagged for stable.
