The reason for concern is that if the date is wrong then the infrastructure used to roll out the release has a bug which can have whatever consequences so rushing to download is unwise. But yes, I see that nothing has changed since the 70s, same moronic attitude towards people confused by Unix shit. At least you are funny morons, I give you that:)

Bottom line appears to be a lone miner with a normal desktop computer is not going to be able to do anything but heat up his room. I agree bitcoin is a cool concept and design and the history is fascinating. But we are probably priced out. I don't see much difference to 'real money' when thinking from standpoint of a lone miner with a normal desktop printer. we don't create the money, we just trade it, be it buying things or working to earn it etc.. That's a good comparison and it is the point I was making. Nobody has ever legally printed money with his own printer but people have been able to mine bitcoins with their own computers until recently. That was the original point of bitcoin and it is already on the verge of disappearing. bitcoin was supposed to be decentralized currency but because of increasing resources needed for mining that part is no longer relevant. Do you really want another unelected federal reserve board of bitcoin? That kind of defeats the purpose.
Is there a bitcoin client for OpenBSD or is anyone porting one? Seems like OpenBSD would be a good OS to host a client considering there are viruses and exploits of that well known *cough* OS *cough* that too many people use.

I was given the choice between OpenBSD and NetBSD. Now, since portability is not all that important, I was oriented towards OpenBSD, which is more secure. The only problem might be the lack of certain features on OpenBSD, such as support for a modern filesystem. As I said, I don't know much about BSDs, so don't flame at me if I say something incorrect. In fact, I am asking your advice. What I would need for my project is a filesystem that supports, at least, journaling. From what I have seen, NetBSD already has that, while OpenBSD doesn't. Has any modern filesystem been ported to OpenBSD? I really need to know, because this issue may constitute a stumbling block to my adoption of OpenBSD. Thanks Ben J.

Now on to the question you didn't ask but really needs to be asked: Is it better for you and your client to run their project on a filesystem that doesn't journal but on an operating system that stays up, or would it be better for you to run with a journaling filesystem on an OS that can't stay up? Forgive my bluntness, but I think that speaks to the heart of your question! If I'm not wrong about you, you're going to need a journaling filesystem little buddy! Ben Dover

I am running OpenBSD 5.1 SPARC (32 bit) under QEMU. It seems to work perfectly except for a couple of minor annoyances one of which may be QEMU related/fixable. In Emacs 23.4.1 -no-x from packages I am having a problem getting both backspace and delete to work correctly at the same time, correctly being defined as backspace causing the cursor to move to the left and consume characters and delete as remaining in the current column and consuming characters to the right. Terminal type is sun (default). Can anyone help with this please? Thank you.
Violating copyright laws because software should be free or I found it on the Internet!!! is dangerous if you actually have a job or your mommy and daddy aren't willing to pay your legal costs if you get caught. Like stealing money from winos, you might not get caught but it teaches dangerous habits that shouldn't be taught in your social life or professional life. OpenBSD and the other open sourced operating systems have been very good about this: Nomen should not be suggesting dangerous habits on a public mailing list. I was not suggesting anything. I was answering a rhetorical question with a rhetorical answer. Read what I wrote and don't have a cow, dude. If you want Windows you can buy a copy or rip one off. That is the reality. FreactOS isn't going to help people who want Windows. My question was retorical. So was my answer your question was based on. I'm afraid that some folks do think that pirated copies are free. Ethics can be very difficult: is it ethical to steal from a thief? Yes, see below :-) For someone who's living in the I can steal it for free, why bother with a freeware one world, explaining ethical or moral behavior can be awkward. Because freeware has to have advantages other than being free. OpenBSD is not good because it's free as in beer, it's good because it's good for technical reasons. The fact it's free as in not GPL, and doesn't cost money is just more to like about it. It is not the main thing to like about it. There's that and the twenty some odd boxes I bought in the last 20 years that had various versions of Windows forcibly installed that I paid for, most without any install media. Forgive me for not feeling like a criminal when I run bootlegged copies of XP in a VM to do stuff for $WORK since I do believe I have the right to run to run copies of the Curse of Redmond without pissing further hard earned $CURRENCY away on them. BTW Redmond assholes, if you're reading this, you shitheads owe me twenty fucking CDs with your shit-for-an-OS installation on them. Until then, FUCK YOU! Go Chinese hackers, you rock! ;-) Keep on crackin' it babe, keep on crackin' it. As far as I'm concerned, Microsoft is the criminal. The people who rip off copies are justified based on MicroPimp's criminal business practices. Don't try to extrapolate this to other issues, it's specific to MicroPimp.

That's interesting, as for me bsd.rd only creates sd0, so I have to find the right sdN in dmesg and then cd /dev; sh MAKEDEV sdN if I want to install OS there... as somebody else said the easiest thing is to use whatever fdisk you prefer and make an OpenBSD partition before starting the OBSD installer. The OBSD installer usually finds that and you go right to disklabel
So I downloaded all the package files, wrote them to a USB stick, created a bootable image with GRUB, booted into the OpenBSD installer and off we go. Now, this computer already had Windows 7 and Linux, plus about 16 GB of unpartitioned space where OpenBSD is going. It's actually the same notebook from two years ago. Not very smart trying to install another OS on a disk that has anything else you want on it. I think you took a silly risk. Did you see the part where it says you're supposed to have a good backup? password. Configuration of network interfaces. I'm not actually paying a whole lot of attention to the questions as this is just a test installation and I figure I can always explore and configure the system later. Big mistake, as you found out later. And my partition table is gone. Poof! Instantly, with no confirmation. Yeah, BSD spares us the endless hair pulling OK confirmation dialogs that come standard with Windows and BSD users appreciate that. No, we demand it. I immediately realized what had happened and rebooted. Too late. I got a No OS message. It seems that the OpenBSD installer actually overwrites the partition table the instant you press Enter. It's pretty offensive when software does what you tell it, is that what you are saying? What saved me was an Ubuntu installation CD and the wonderful tool gpart (http://www.brzitwa.de/mb/gpart/). With a bit of tinkering in gpart and some very careful work with the Linux version of fdisk, I managed to reconstruct the partition table and saved my system. Great. Do that a few more times and you'll have the know-how to multiboot a new OS. BTW many Linux distros will do the same thing to you. No intelligent person adds a new OS to an existing disk with important stuff on it unless he knows what he is doing. For you, VirtualBox or VMWare would have made alot of sense. It still would except from your whining I don't really think you're cut out for OpenBSD. Ubuntu would be good for you, probably. Distributing an installation program that can wipe out the user's hard disk instantly on a single wrong keystroke, without so much as a confirmation prompt is so shortsighted and irresponsible that I can barely believe it. Try installing another copy of Windows on the same disk and let us know how you make out. Even better, try OS/2. It will nail every disk you have. Actually so will most Windows, they write bootloaders on every disk they find, without asking you and with no confirmation dialogs. This is not about being an expert user or knowing what you want to do, because I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Maybe, but you had no idea *how* to do it. Critical difference there buddy. This is about incredibly stupid user interface design. Sorry, it's just too unbelievable that someone would think that this is actually a good idea. Well honestly the BSD installers are mostly old and cranky but we know how they work pretty well by now and they very seldom do anything but what you tell them. You're coming from Windows and hand-holding OS and you got a taste of a serious OS. You can't really blame the installer for believing you meant what you typed. I joined this mailing list just to tell you this: Right now, I feel like never, ever touching OpenBSD with a ten-foot pole again. Have a nice day luser! I didn't even have to join the list to say that.
the reason is you can download source code, look at it, make sure for yourself there's no backdoors, build your own ISO from source code You can but nobody does. If the entire OpenBSD team can't finish a complete audit of OpenBSD in one release cycle how long do you suppose it would take one person to do that? Not very practical.

I just downloaded PaderSync SSH Trial and I think I will buy the full version. I got it before it was a paid app whilst still in testing. It seems very good and handles large keys well enough. The only objection I've got is the menus and dialogs can be a bit wordy but it does seem to work fine. It has a semi transparent keyboard with easy access to Ctrl, Alt, etc keys (in contrast to ConnectBot) and works in landscape mode giving larger characters. BlackBerrys have a physical keyboard so we've got to use the transparent onscreen kb just for bits like control and alt keys (emacs is fun on a BB) keyboard, ...). It also claims to do scp... yeah sftp telnet and maybe smb. an nfs client would be grand.
What newer smartphones do you recommend for using also as a tool for managing OpenBSD servers (maybe windogs too) ? What experiences had you had with smartphones and OpenBSD managing? BlackBerry has built in VPN and you can also buy a few different SSH and SFTP apps.
Anonymous cripto () ecn ! org wrote: Solaris ZFS I've heard of it (ZFS) but here's the thing, I struggle enough keeping up with Wndows and OpenBSD I don't want to put another system into the mix. Understood. Unfortunately or fortunately however you look at it OpenBSD doesn't have ZFS. But FreeBSD does. That could be another option with less of a learning curve than Solaris which admittedly is steep. Another thing to consider is a prebuilt NAS appliance based on FreeBSD or OpenSolaris. There are numerous ones out check distrowatch.com What ZFS does for you aside from offering pretty high quality software RAID and other redundancy/protection from data loss is give you really nice management features like being able to do quotas and resize filesystems and compress (and with Solaris 11 even encrypt them) all from one central management interface instead of external or add-on tools. It's one stop shopping. It also makes NFS and SAMBA less painful since you don't have to play around with the normal share tables and portmapper stuff (not THAT big of a deal but not zero) you can just turn features on or off at the ZFS filesystem level. It's really ideal for a backup or NAS appliance. Again you must have known good hardware from the disks to the backplane to the RAM or ZFS will ruin your week or even your whole month. When it works, it works. When it doesn't, oh shit. You could probably script Filezilla to SSH what you want to the file server. Good idea. I'll probably end up either installing the Microsoft NFS client and scripting that or use the bog standard ftp client and script that. The problem is the M/S NFS client only works on certain versions of Windows and not others. Even on the versions it is supposed to work on it doesn't always work. I have an XP Pro box that SFU refuses to install on.
Hey. Yo. Currently my backup regime is woeful. I have years worth of work on a Windows machine ^^^ and some stuff scattered across OpenBSD machines. I'm thinking of building a machine (the file server) to provide some backup and central storage. Solaris ZFS Being able to push data to the server manually from Windows and other operating systems over the network. SSH or IPsec or similar is my idea here. Windows is a weakspot since it is so bad and has few standard tools. You could probably script Filezilla to SSH what you want to the file server. Everybody else can simply mount NFS shares, dead easy with ZFS. Or you could rsync from non-Windows systems to Solaris. Having some mechanism where I can pull onto the server from the clients at selected times or poll the machines for changes and update the server or something. You can script cron jobs to rsync from everywhere but on Windows. I have no experience here and I'm thinking about acronyms like NFS, rsync, etcetera. NFS is better for sharing in real time. For backups rsync is hard to beat but Windows is a weak point as mentioned by other posters. This is for a small number of machines and low rate data changes but if I can find something that's in base, scalable, robust, secure, simple, quick ... Solaris ZFS Please give me some recommended acronyms, man pages, etcetera. PLEASE check the Solaris HCL and possible zfs-disc...@opensolaris.org before building a file server. If you pick the wrong components, ZFS will hurt you badly. If you pick the right components you will be so happy.
What's so funny is that they put GNU/Linux on it, when gNU is supposed to be about FREE dom. LOL. Fucking LOL. That's perfect. GNU has nothing to do with free, it has to do with butt fucking people until they become ASSimilated. Sounds like a match.

Now that I have it setup with the correct package path, etc, I am finding out 5.0 is much better than 4.9 was; Can you say exactly what is better? I found 4.9 very nice and had no issues running it on a server.
And yet you, L.V. Lammert, I am not Lammert. I don't approve of the way Lammert handled the issue but that is separate from the fairly regular piss parades and walls of text taking place here when a simple answer would work. The consensus of the vocal parties is that contribution = abuseLicense and I call bullshit. Lammert SHOULD have apoligized to the list for fucking himself and wasting people's time but he was less likely to do that after Henning and others gratuitous ass parade and ensuing gang bang. Whoever told him to man up was justified.
Lars Hansson romaby...@gmail.com whined I notice you spend much more time scolding people than actually saying anything worthwhile. You should work on yourself and find out why that is. Perhaps you could benefit from some anger management training? I notice that Henning is contributing much more code to OpenBSD than you ever have and has also produces much more informative and useful replies than you ever have. You should stop trolling and get a life. I asked this before but I guess you didn't see it. So if you contribute much more code to OpenBSD than someone else do you automatically get license to insult people and post 100% noise as some kind of reward? Lars, you ass-licking dog, what I am saying to you and prima donnas like you is you can be a good human being and that is more important than all the patches and code in the world. If you can contribute patches and new code so much the better, but if all you do is contribute to OpenBSD and you behave like a fucking asshole you wipe out all the benefit. Cause the world does need good human beings but it doesn't need prima donnas just because they contribute to OpenBSD. I'm pretty sure the project would still be doing fine even if acclaimed contributors and their ass-licking dog fanboys like you didn't spend entire threads bashing people when a simple answer would be enough. They know everything already right? so it should be easy to answer. Cheers, Lars Fuck you and your boyfriend.
Perhaps he did. Wouldn't it be useful to help the guy trying to help you (you know, the wheat) by giving a really simple and straightforward answer, even if it is repeating yourself ? Probably would've been less typing than what you just did (e.g. Sorry, I think it runs as user ). No, we've been over that and the answer from the argumentative sonsabitches was as long as you contribute one patch you are permitted nay might we suggest *encouraged* to flame rather than help. I guess it makes them feel like men, but to the rest of us they only seem like girl scouts. If you point this out you spawn an entire new subthread of postings by the abovementioned argumentative sonsabitches reaffirming their girl scout status. Why actually answer a question when you can create a sharkfest of insults and make yourself feel like a man? So what if you contribute? I fired a few assholes like you. I don't need prima donnas, you're not worth it. Helpful people who actually know something aren't mutually exclusive. To you primma donnas, go fuck yourselves. You aren't worth it.

The deal with Lemote is you want free box with no restricted anything its the way to go. For 250 us dollar its not a bad network but for 500 for the 10.9 I can get a used I5 for that price easy. Its just not the same to compair an intel aton or I3 to Lemote product. I think it is and I don't care what's free or not. I'm looking at what you get for your money and an Intel box for the same price (specially a used one like you said) is head and shoulders above the current Longsoon. I would like a MIPS box but I am not going to be held hostage to buy one and neither are most people.
i saw them on face book and amazon also 250 500 us dollars Like Kurt Russell said, That's TOO FUCKING HIGH!!! When they start selling them for a fair price let's say 50 bucks for the black box and maybe 150 for a loaded laptop then it's time to buy. Until then, tekmote isn't getting my business.

I came to openbsd only recently trying to find a modern OS which will run on my old sun blade 100. Net and FreeBSD probably also support it. Depending on what you want to do with your system I would recommend OpenBSD or FreeBSD. FreeBSD will have more current apps (your complaint below) and is a better desktop if you define a good desktop by more apps and more current apps. I don't need the latest of anything so OpenBSD works fine for me. However on SPARC I really like Solaris for a server or desktop. OpenBSD would be better for an applicance like a router, firewall etc. if you have an extra SPARC box. Then again Solaris 10 will go away but OpenBSD hopefully is here to stay. I wanted to use a linux but the only current linux for sparc64 is debian 6.03 Gentoo/Funtoo also run on SPARC64. Openbsd seems to have better drivers since it works fine. OpenBSD always works fine on everything I have tried it on. annoys me. Also no recent browser support. Seamonkey 2.04 is old. What about Solaris 10? The latest Firefox builds are available and so are very recent copies of almost every app. I build everything else from source though. If you're going to run an old box you will either need to accept living with an old OS and old apps or learn to build whatever you want from source. In some cases the latter isn't possible though.
