NetBSD achieves permanent charity status ======================================== The NetBSD Foundation has been granted permanent 501(c)(3) charity status under United States law. The Foundation has been a 501(c)(3) charity since 2004, but previously the status was given under an advanced ruling period, i.e. it was of limited time. The permanent charity status is also known as 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) . To achieve the permanent "public charity" status, we needed to prove that we are publicly funded by going through the financial activity of the past 5 years and filing the necessary forms. Lex Wennmacher, Martin Husemann, and Christos Zoulas spent quite a few weekends going through all the numbers and completing the forms, and we are happy to report that the IRS accepted our paperwork. Being a public charity is important to us, as it means that we are eligible to receive employer matching donations, as well as to enjoy the most beneficial tax treatment. Jared D. McNeill The NetBSD Foundation  http://bestpractices.cof.org/community/ViewStandard.cfm?itemNumber=901 About NetBSD: NetBSD, a free, secure, and highly portable descendant of the BSD UNIX family, is one of the oldest open source operating systems. It is available for many platforms, from 64-bit Opteron machines and desktop systems to handheld and embedded devices. Its clean design and advanced features make it excellent in both production and research environments; its source is freely available under an unencumbering business-friendly open source license. More information is available at http://www.NetBSD.org/.
The pkgsrc-2008Q1 Release ========================= The pkgsrc developers are very proud to announce the new pkgsrc-2008Q1 release, which has support for more packages than previous releases.

Changes to the NetBSD Packages Collection in March 2002. ======================================================== [Apologies for the lateness of this summary - agc] 60 packages were added in March 2002, whilst 4 were removed, so the number of packages at the beinning of April 2002 was 2729, up from 2673 at the end of February 2002.. The main change to the packages collection, apart from these 60 packages, was the upgrade of png to version 1.2.1. In order to keep track of binary packages which may be installed, we had to bump all the "dependent" packages. My thanks to Fred Bruckman for doing this work. It is also the reason this "changes" report takes a different format to all the previous ones, since it is more than 100KB in length.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 NetBSD Security Advisory 2006-008 ================================= Topic: Malformed ELF interpreter causes system crash Version: NetBSD-current: source prior to March 17, 2006 NetBSD 3.0: affected NetBSD 2.1: affected NetBSD 2.0.*: affected NetBSD 2.0: affected Severity: Any local user can crash the system Fixed: NetBSD-current: March 17, 2006 NetBSD-3-0 branch: March 20, 2006 (3.0.1 will include the fix) NetBSD-3 branch: March 20, 2006 NetBSD-2-1 branch: March 20, 2006 (2.1.1 will include the fix) NetBSD-2-0 branch: March 20, 2006 (2.0.4 will include the fix) NetBSD-2 branch: March 20, 2006 Abstract ======== A malformed copy of ld.elf_so, or any other elf interpreter, can cause a NULL pointer deference in the kernel. Technical Details ================= The elf_load_file() function assumed that an interpreter always has a PT_LOAD section defined in it's header. That is not necessarily the case, as an attacker can trivially create an interpreter that does not have that, and a binary that uses that interpreter. The netbsd-2, netbsd-2-0 and netbsd-2-1 branches are only vulnerable if the kernel is compiled with the USE_TOPDOWN_VM option which is not set by default in GENERIC kernels. Solutions and Workarounds ========================= For all NetBSD versions, you need to obtain fixed kernel sources, rebuild and install the new kernel, and reboot the system. The fixed source may be obtained from the NetBSD CVS repository. The following instructions briefly summarise how to upgrade your kernel. In these instructions, replace: ARCH with your architecture (from uname -m), and KERNCONF with the name of your kernel configuration file. To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install the kernel: # cd src # cvs update -d -P sys/kern/exec_elf32.c # ./build.sh kernel=KERNCONF # mv /netbsd /netbsd.old # cp ...
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 The NetBSD Foundation is pleased to announce the generous donation of two machines from Sun Microsystems for the purpose of advancing the development of The NetBSD Packages Collection under Solaris. The NetBSD Packages Collection, also known as ``pkgsrc'', is a framework for building third-party software on NetBSD and other UNIX-like systems, currently containing over 5400 packages. The pkgsrc framework was derived from FreeBSD's ports system, and initially developed for NetBSD only, but has since been ported to a number of operating systems with Solaris being the oldest non-NetBSD platform supported by pkgsrc. Sun Microsystems recognizes the NetBSD Project's portability efforts and noticed the various advantages of pkgsrc's cross-platform package management capabilities. The results of the bulk-builds run by various volunteers show that already there are over 2000 packages that build flawlessly under Solaris. In order to support and further the development efforts of the NetBSD Packages team, to promote the build of binary packages for Solaris 8, Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 and to enhance the support of the Sun Forte Compiler chain, Sun Microsystems has donated one SunBlade 1000 with 2x600mhz SPARCIII processors and one Dell Precision 2650 with 2 x 3GHz Xeon Processors to the NetBSD Project. Both machines are running Solaris 8; Sun also provided licenses for SunOne Studio 9. ``We are very glad to have received this donation,'' said Jan Schaumann, a NetBSD developer and System Administrator at Stevens Institute of Technology, where the machines are hosted. ``Trying to maintain a cross-platform environment requires a rock-solid and stable package management system.'' ``The NetBSD Packages collection now runs on every major Unix platform and allows system administrators to keep thousands of third-party applications easily up-to-date,'' he continues. ``Having these two machines available to continually bulk-build all ...

Hello, we would like to encourage people to download the ISO images of the brand new NetBSD 3.0.1 release via the BitTorrent peer to peer protocol. This will distribute the load and provide everybody with as much bandwidth as possible. Here is a quick guide on how to use BitTorrent for this purpose: 1.) The BitTorrent Client If you already have NetBSD running, please install the "rtorrent" package from "pkgsrc/net/rtorrent". Clients for other operating systems can be downloaded here: http://www.bittorrent.com/ (Windows, Mac OX, Linux, etc.) http://azureus.sourceforge.net/ (Windows, Mac OX, Linux, etc.) http://utorrent.com/ (Windows) 2.) Downloading The "Torrent File" To use BitTorrent for downloading you need a torrent file which identifies the file you want to download. These files are small (only a few kilobytes) and downloaded via normal protocols like HTTP or FTP. The torrent files for NetBSD 3.0.1 can be found here: http://www.netbsd.org/mirrors/torrents/ Just download the torrent files for the ISO images you want to get. 3.) Starting The Download Once you have the torrent file you can start the download. If you use the "rtorrent" client under NetBSD simply run this command in the directory with the torrent files you downloaded before: rtorrent *.torrent The ISO images will be downloaded to the current directory afterwards. The GUI based clients (e.g. BitTorrent for Windows) usually have a menu item called "Open torrent file" which you can use to start the download. 4.) Uploading To Other Peers After your BitTorrent client has finished the download it will continue to upload data from the downloaded file to other BitTorrent clients. Please keep your client running for a while if possible to support other people's downloads. 5.) Legal Considerations BitTorrent and other peer to peer protocols are often used to transfer copyright protected ...
A new regional list, email@example.com, has been created. This list is oriented toward English-speaking NetBSD users in Japan, and so the preferred language is English. The list will focus on: 1. Technical and social gatherings in Japan that are accessable to English-speaking NetBSD users. 2. Questions and help with using NetBSD in a Japanese environment. 3. General discussion of NetBSD use in Japan. NOTE: you can't use Japanese (multibyte) characters on the list since the list manager is configured so that those mails are filtered as spam. Use Romaji (e.g., "nihongo", "Tokyo", "kaihatsu", etc.) instead. Enjoy! Masao

If you want to build NetBSD 4.0_RC2 from source, cvs up your source tree to "netbsd-4-0-RC2", or just along the "netbsd-4" branch. Alternatively, you can download the source sets from the URL above, under the source/ directory. Please note that in this release candidate, the sparc platform has been accidentally omitted. This will be corrected in the next RC cycle. We plan to release another release candidate next week. Please help us test these release candidates as much as possible to make NetBSD 4.0 a solid release. Thanks, the NetBSD Release Engineering team.
Hi, it is my pleasure to announce that the third release candidate for NetBSD 3.1 has been released. Binaries and ISO's are available on the following URL: ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/netbsd-3-1-RC3/200609170000Z/ or one of the releng mirrors: http://www.netbsd.org/mirrors/#ftp-releng For those who want to build NetBSD 3.1_RC3 from source, the CVS tag is "netbsd-3-1-RC3". Alternatively, you can download source sets from the above URL, under the source/ directory. As usual, you can find an overview of major changes since the NetBSD 3.0 release in the INSTALL.* documents in each architecture's directory. A complete list of all changes can be found in the CHANGES-3.1 file. Improvements since the second release candidate include: + fixed recent security issues with BIND, OpenSSL and X11 font handling + added "xm shutdown" support for Xen3 domU's + honor the user's umask when creating UNIX domain sockets + fixed some Xen timing and clock issues + fixed serial console on the second serial port of sparc64 machines + fixed DHCP in sysinst on 64-bit archs We anticipate this to be the final release candidate for the NetBSD 3.1 release, so, if no serious problems arise, we expect NetBSD 3.1 to be released on October 2. Thanks again for your patience and your help for making NetBSD 3.1 a good release! Geert

I'm sad to announce that after 10 years of NNTP access to mailing lists, I'm going to shutdown the service. I just can't justify dedicating more resources to the service, given that there are public services at a much grander scale that do everything, but just much better. Personally I think I'll be doing casual browsing of mailing lists via gmane.org. I recommend taking a look at it. They offer two different HTTP interfaces as well as NNTP (including posting, if I understand correctly). I'm planning to take news.gw.com offline at the end of December 31st.
