Definitely not at all.

I haven't worked the most on privsep, by far.

and the examples I've worked on are highly specific and probably
not applicable to most of the base code.




I was wrong then. My apologies. Still, it's worth giving a look at the 
events page. I have learnt a lot about OpenBSD going through all 
presentations and papers, despite understanding only 0.1% of the

Interesting.


Recent versions of tar(1) on {Free,Net}BSD stipulate:

Hi,

the more elegant solution is to set ENV appropriately. ~/.profile is
normally read only at login, while sub-shells will source whatever
file is specified in ENV.


This is what I had and it generated the undesired prompt in sh.

You probably mean "interactive shells", not just sub shells. A sub shell 
could be child of a non login shell as well.


With ENV=~/.khsrc, PS1 is propagated over to sub shells, whether it is 
ksh or sh, whereas just sourcing ./.khsrc  will not export PS1. I don't 
know why this is. It doesn't make sense to me. Maybe it's just because 
OpenBSD sh is just ksh in disguise or there might be other reasons that 
I obviously don't know.

Not 100% sure if this answers you question, but I boot a qemu instance

and ttys:

$ grep tty00 /etc/ttys

What about if one compiles ports? If OpenBSD is anything similar to

Funny, because this seems to validate what you are reporting:

However:

It looks like "ls -R" is showing some hidden directories but not all.

Can you not just "ssh -Y" into your machine and then launch Chrome

It will most likely not work because:
https://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7/rockchip/asus-chromebook-flip-c100p

The hardware is locked so that you can only boot the Chrome kernel
(unless somebody knows a workaround). Even a Linux distro will be a
problem, because the userspace will have to be compatible with the
kernel.

Back in 2012, I struggled to install Slackware ARM on a similar
Chromebook and then I gave up (there might be traces of it on the
Slackware-arm mailing list archives).

What does the "#n" after "GENERIC.MP" stand for?

2020-06-28 Thread Ottavio Caruso
Hi,

Out of curiosity:

~$ uname -r
6.6
~$ uname -v
GENERIC.MP#0
~$ sysctl kern.osversion
kern.osversion=GENERIC.MP#0

This was GENERIC.MP#7 before I ran syspatch and rebooted.

I can't find a reference to this notation. I thought it could have
been the patch version number, but it's obviously not so. Looking on:
https://dmesgd.nycbug.org/index.cgi?do=index=OpenBSD

it appears machines running -current have a higher #number.

You need to login in your system, right? Unless your program is a

Thanks for the hint. Actually:

I probably didn't make myself clear and I apologize. I'd like to have
a list of files for just one package, and only if that package has
been installed. If not installed, it should tell me it hasn't been
installed or just provide no output, a bit like pkg_info behaves on

Well no, because that would give results for all packages, not each of

How do I get a list of the files of only installed packages?

2020-06-07 Thread Ottavio Caruso
Hi,

"pkg_info -L PACKAGE-NAME"

will give me a list of all the files within each package, regardless
of whether the package is installed or not.

How can I restrict the output to only installed packages, making it
fail if the package is not installed?

I could do:

"pkg_info -f PACKAGE-NAME "

but that would not give me full pathnames.

I've looked at the pkg_info man page but I couldn't find a clue.

Thanks.

You can say the same for 99.9% of all open source/free software:
because they are free, in the public eye and easy to access, they
attract more attention than products you have to pay a fortune for.

This is probably a question for the qemu-discuss mailing list. How

Any relevant bits in dmesg? Output of ifconfig? I haven't tried 6.7

Not sure if it's safe import from that project, as it lacks all the
legal proviso, like this for example:
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/head/share/doc/psd/title/Title?revision=307807=co=307807

As long as I know, the FreeBSD SVN has all the PSD, SMM and USD source
tree that can be used legally. How one makes an OpenBSD ports from
that, I don't know:

I believe you are referring to the historic 4.4 BSD lite documents.
These are interesting for their historical value, and in some cases
(for example vi and the lpd tutorials) are somewhat still relevant.

Some of these documents have a proprietary licence attached to it and
I believe it's due to the 1994 AT settlement. There are third party
collections (like this: https://github.com/sergev/4.4BSD-Lite2) but
I'm not sure if one could import them all in the source tree or in the
ports tree without violating some copyright here and there.

Provided Wine is now broken on most modern OSes that only ship with
64-bit binaries, there are tons of reasons why Wine is still relevant.
There are gazillions of abandonware (badly) written for old versions
of Windows (Win 3.* up to XP) that don't even run properly on Windows
10 but run beautifully on Wine. I have to thank Wine for getting my
amateur licence because I had to run a multiple question trainer

Probably not what you were looking for but, back in the days when I
was ultra paranoid about my web browsing, I used to use stripped down
live usb installations of Linux distros (DSL was one of them that I
remember). I ignore if OpenBSD comes with such a solution out the box,
but I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to make your own read-only
install. Then, you could either reboot from it or run it through an
emulator.

The "BSD specialist" is just an entry-level certification and doesn't
assume that the candidate has the tools and the skills to actually
contribute code to upstream (incidentally, I have submitted bug
reports and small patches to NetBSD and that was it).

For the sake of clarity: I won't propose or submit any changes on this
issue, as this is clearly not welcome. Amen to that and let's move on.

It's also a pity the the faq are not available in a single html or pdf
format. This would be handy for those who, like me, are studying for
the BSD Specialist certification. Having a single document makes it
easier to search for a specific command.

There's a one-page text file on the ftp server but this is quite old
(it doesn't even mention doas).

Warning: beginner here.

What about having good old plain text obsd-faq.txt
<https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/doc/obsd-faq.txt> mirrored in
base system?

Or maybe it's there but I could't find it:

oc@OpenBSD:~$ find /usr/share/ -iname *faq.txt*
oc@OpenBSD:~$

You should have old copies of messages in /var/log:

oc@OpenBSD:~$ ls /var/log/messages*
/var/log/messages  /var/log/messages.1.gz
/var/log/messages.0.gz     /var/log/messages.2.gz

I'm not sure if I'm getting what you're saying. I have a barebone
plain-vanilla OpenBSD 6.6 installation and I have ksh as my login
shell. I can do command and file completion with [TAB] on any commands
with a hyphen (pkg-config, ssh-add, ssh-agent, ssh-keygen, ssh-keyscan
and so on).

"no _STA method" 128 times in dmesg?

2020-01-07 Thread Ottavio Caruso
Hi,

I'm running OpenBSD 6.5/amd64 in a qemu VM (host is Linux Debian).

I see multiple lines of "no _STA method" in dmesg.

(Full log: https://termbin.com/5ccz)

I've asked the qemu developers on their irc channel what it might mean
and they said it's ACPI related but they can't determine exactly what
it is about.

qemu-system-x86_64 -drive if=ide,file=/home/oc/VM/img/openbsd.image \
-M q35,accel=kvm -m 400M -cpu host -smp $(nproc) \
-net user,hostfwd=tcp::-:22 -net nic -nographic

This is the command I use to boot OpenBSD:

It's probably harmless but I'd like to have your opinion about it.

Thanks
