2.7 Beta!

Contributed by Dengue on from the woo-hoo dept.

According to OpenBSD -Current has gone to 2.7 -beta ! Looking at the changelogs, I would have to guess that this will not be an easy upgrade and will require a fresh install as the least painful migration path. There have been a LOT of changes made since 2.6. This is also a good time to re-echo Theo's call for testers of -current .

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your downloads.

    yeah, like the beta...
    gladly they user ipfilter 3.3.12 now, and not 3.2.10...
    i just wondered if the only way to get the source for -current is cvs?!? or is there a nice tgz tarball i'm overlooking?

    Since there's no RSA libraries in the snapshot, and people have been asking a lot on IRC, you can compile them from source by getting src/lib/libssl from CVS. Use a pserver-capable server, since ssh doesn't work without RSA. Example session:
    % cd /usr
    % cvs -d login
    Password: anoncvs
    % cvs -d get src/lib/libssl
    % cd src/lib/libssl
    % if make; then sudo make install

    these are now on the ftp site, and should be
    available through your normal install.

    Is it just me, or has ipsecadm changed a bit? My old IPSEC config files (scripts to execute my ipsecadm commands) no longer work since I upgraded to 2.7 -beta.
