Move the existing backup file to a different file, then hit return to have gtar continue. If you’ve used mergemaster(8), sysmerge(8) will be no surprise. With the new /etc, Open BSD automatically generates the missing SSH key for the new crypto algorithm. In the interest of sanity, I need to remove and reinstall all the packages on this system.
While that’s running, let’s get the download files. This isn’t a big deal, except for those few that must be built as ports because I require something unusual.
(This might also invalidate any bug report you send.) Don’t do this if you have any need or respect for your computer. One annoyance with using an MSDOS-formatted disk for backup is that you can’t have a file larger than 4GB. I must use gtar to back up my home directory, and use the multiple-volumes option. Sysmerge will compare your installed /etc with the snapshot fileset and show you the diffs.
This, I realize, is a fairly excessive un-BSD way to do things. Do you run a portaudit/portversion -- check output then update (make deinstall ...etc) after careful consideration? I see myself cvsupping the ports tree, running the "out of date" script, then just upgrading critical ports --- but leaving the kernel/binaries alone and just upgrading every six months.# cd /usr/src/# tar zxvf .../openssh-7.1gz # ftp https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/patches/5.8/common/002_ssh.# signify -Vep /etc/signify/openbsd-58-x 002_ssh.\ -m - | (cd /usr/src && patch -p0) # cd ssh # make obj # make cleandir # make depend # make # make install # cp ssh_config sshd_config /etc/ssh https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openssh-6.7gz If you are installing Open SSH 6.7 on Open BSD 5.5, you will need the the following patch: https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openbsd55_6.7.patch.If you are installing on Open BSD 5.4 or earlier, use this patch: https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openbsd54_6.7.patch.sorry @tls but I don't understand what you mean by loading the firmware ..if you install a firmware it should load on reboot but it won't work unless you properly set ifconfig.I first download the new firmware (wpi*.tgz) to my ~/ $ sudo pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/* $ export PKG_PATH=~/ $ sudo pkg_add wpi*$ sudo reboot Are you aware that command will delete all installed packages on Open BSD?
