Errata for MirOS #10

Jump to binary updates

Source updates

By upgrading to the MIRBSD_10 branch on CVS in the src module, you gain the following fixes:

Binary updates

Download the first i386 binary update or the first sparc binary update. Either select the site10.ngz distribution set during install, or use cd /; sudo tar xzphvvf /path/to/site10.ngz to bring in the fixed files.

The security update is gzsig(1)d, use the following command to verify the integrity of the cryptographic signature:

	$ grep '^key 2:' /usr/share/doc/README | \
	    sed 's/^key 2:.//' | gzsig verify /dev/stdin site10.ngz
	$ rmd160 site10.ngz

The first command verifies the cryptographic signature, i.e. whether the update is really from us. The second command outputs a cryptographic hash to compare with the correct one from the list below, to determine whether you got the correct file.

Alternatively, you can use the updated locations for the i386 or sparc architectures during netinstall and ensure that you have the site10.ngz set selected.

In the future, the update set will be named fixes10.ngz, but to be able to select it, you must use the modified installer from the updates directory (or rename it to or merge it into your own site10.ngz set).
