A new set of packages was uploaded. Upgrade as usual:

Code: Select all

# pkman -Syu
The upgraded xsiipc (version 0.1-391) will support shared memory and semaphore set (message queue is supported since 0.1-390).

IPC features are accessible via the System V API:
  • message queue: msgget(), msgctl(), msgsnd(), msgrcv()
  • shared memory: shmget(), shmctl(), shmat(), shmdt()
  • semaphore set: semget(), semctl(), semop()

Introducing the small-PID mechanism: this mechanism hides the actual task handles, and provides small integers from the range 1 to 32767 (inclusive). Due to this change, the system shall be upgraded carefully when upgrading sysvc below 0.1-395 to 0.1-395 or above:

Code: Select all

# mv /bin/sh /bin/sh.old && ln -s /run/bin/sh /bin/sh
# PATH=/run/bin:/run/usr/bin:$PATH
# pkman -Syu
# reboot
...
# rm /bin/sh && mv /bin/sh.old /bin/sh

  • Several bugs were fixed in bufgroup-0.1-402, vfs-0.1-402 and threos-kernel-0.1-402 (i.e. memory leaks, false statistics, etc).
  • Added support of UNIX domain sockets by prot_unix. Currently named sockets are not handled correctly, but autobind and abstract socket namespace works. Socket pairs can be also created with socketpair(). Note: SOCK_DGRAM is not supported yet.
  • Other packages also contains minor fixes. E.g. links version 2.16-3 installs the manual pages into the correct directory.
Upgrade the system normally with additional installation of prot_unix:

Code: Select all

# pkman -Syu prot_unix
