---- Security Advisories:
Current active security advisories for 3.3: None
---- System Update Information:
The fvwm desktop choice in the X Desktops menu doesn't work.
Fix: Install fvwm from /usr/ports/x11-wm/fvwm2 instead of using the
desktop menu item and put "fvwm" in your $HOME/.xinitrc and
$HOME/.xsession files for use by startx/xdm. You can also build
and reinstall /usr/src/release/sysinstall from 3.3-STABLE sources
to fix the X Desktop menu item in question.
The lo0 (loop-back) device is not configured on startup, causing
utilities like mountd to fail.
Fix: Assuming that you experience this problem at all, edit /etc/rc.conf
and search for where the network_interfaces variable is set. In
its value, change the word "auto" to "lo0" since the auto keyword
doesn't bring the loop-back device up properly, for reasons yet to
be adequately determined. Since your other interface(s) will already
be set in the network_interfaces variable after initial installation,
it's reasonable to simply s/auto/lo0/ in rc.conf and move on.
The 3.3 ISO image (and 3.3 CDROM #1 from Walnut Creek CDROM)
mysteriously fails to boot on an ATAPI CDROM device but works
with SCSI CDROMs (on adaptors which support bootable CDs).
Fix: Either install using boot floppies (see floppies/README.TXT)
rather than booting from the CDROM or grab the updated ISO image
See also the CHECKSUM.MD5 file in that directory to verify whether
you have the "old" or new image - some mirrors may be slow
in picking up the uncompressed and gzipped versions of the ISO 9660
installation image. As always, Walnut Creek CDROM will also provide
replacement CDs (once they become available) on request to purchasers
of the 3.3-RELEASE product.
This problem was caused by a bug in mkisofs which we're still
chasing but have, for now, simply worked-around.
Ppp(8) does not properly detect carrier in direct mode.
Fix: Download and install the latest version of ppp(8) from:
