Binpatches for 4.0

OpenBSDI've finally gotten around to posting binpatches for OpenBSD 4.0. Since I no longer run anything other than OpenBSD 4.0, those are the only binpatches I maintain.

A few notes:

  • I no longer maintain any patches for RAIDFRAME kernels.

  • I bundle both bsd and bsd.mp together for kernel patches.

  • I included an unpatched sendmail binpatch with SASL support added.

  • I created a binpatch for OpenBSD's spamd(8) with Bob Beck's patch to handle mail from Verizon better.

  1. Hi Mike,

    nice work! I've already compared your Makefile against mine. What I don't understand is how compiling kernels for GENERIC and GENERIC.MP works. Do I have to do it twice like this?

    make PATCH="003" KERNEL="GENERIC" build
    ...
    make PATCH="003" KERNEL="GENERIC.MP" build

    I guess not if I look at your Makefile, but I don't know how.

    Is it simply doing this?

    make PATCH="003" KERNEL="GENERIC GENERIC.MP"

    thanks,
    Tobias

  2. Tobias,

    I'm using a custom bsd.binpatch.mk file that I posted on my Binpatch page. It includes extra code to loop through words in the KERNEL variable.

  3. Hi Mike,

    I've figured it out, thanks a lot. It's a good idea to include this.

    thanks,
