Quick Install Instructions If there are bugs found in this CD release, workaround information can be found at http://www.OpenBSD.org/errata.html Please refer to the following files on the three CDROM's for extensive details on how to install OpenBSD 4.8 on your machine: CD1:4.8/i386/INSTALL.i386 CD2:4.8/amd64/INSTALL.amd64 CD2:4.8/macppc/INSTALL.macppc CD3:4.8/sparc64/INSTALL.sparc64 Other architectures are available on the FTP site, due to not fitting onto the 3 CDs we are able to provide. The installation procedure for OpenBSD has changed substanatially compared to OpenBSD 4.7 and previous releases. It is very much simpler, but everyone may still wish to read the INSTALL.* files found in the directory for each architecture. i386: Play with your BIOS options, and see if you can enable booting from CD1. Many older PCs have ROM bugs with CD booting. If CD booting fails, write CD1:4.8/i386/floppy48.fs to a floppy, then boot that. Use floppyB48.fs instead for greater scsi controller support, or floppyC48.fs for better laptop support. If you are mixing OpenBSD with another operating system, you will want to read the INSTALL.i386 document. AMD64: If booting of CD2 fails, write CD2:4.8/amd64/floppy48.fs to a floppy, then boot that. MACPPC: Use CD2. At poweron, hold down the 'c' key until the display turns on and shows "OpenBSD/macppc Boot". Or at the Open Firmware prompt type "boot cd:,ofwboot /4.8/macppc/bsd.rd" SPARC64: To boot off CD3, type "boot cdrom". Otherwise, write CD3:4.8/sparc64/floppy48.fs to a floppy and boot it using "boot floppy" or write CD3:4.8/sparc64/miniroot48.fs to the swap partition on the disk and use the PROM to boot from that partition using "boot disk:b". CD 2 track 2 is an audio track ... Source Code Use CD#3 contains src.tar.gz. Using this tree it is possible to get a head-start on using the anoncvs servers as described at http://www.OpenBSD.org/anoncvs.html. Using these files results in a much faster initial CVS update than you could expect from a fresh checkout of the full OpenBSD source tree. There are two ways of using the CD: Copy the tree off it, (assuming the CD is mounted on /mnt): # cd /usr/src # tar xvfz /mnt/src.tar.gz After this, /usr/src will be a checkout area where all cvs(1) commands will work OK. Refer to http://www.OpenBSD.org/anoncvs.html for more details. CD#3 also contains the following: ports.tar.gz Our ports tree. Refer to CD3:/PORTS xenocara.tar.gz A CVS checkout of our version of the X source tree. Important man pages to read are config(8) and options(4), which will describe in detail how kernels are built. Further Notes: To make a floppy on a Unix system, use "dd if=<file> of=/dev/<device> bs=32k" (where device could be "floppy" or "rfd0c" or "rfd0a"). Use properly formatted perfect floppies with NO BAD BLOCKS or you will lose. Installing Packages The OpenBSD CD-ROM ships with several applications pre-built for various hardware architectures. We call these things packages. The number of applications vary according to available disk space. Check the directory 4.8/packages/<arch> to see which packages are available for your hardware architecture. To install one or more of these packages you must 1) become the superuser (root) 2) mount the appropriate CD-ROM 3) use the ``pkg_add'' command to install the software Example (in which we use su(1) to get superuser privileges, thus you have to be in group "wheel", see the manual page for su(1)). $ su Password: <enter your root password> # mkdir -p /cdrom # mount /dev/cd0a /cdrom # cd /cdrom/4.8/packages/<arch> # pkg_add <package-name1> <package-name2> ... # <add more packages if desired> # umount /cdrom Your hardware architecture can be determined by issuing the command ``arch''. The response will be something like ``OpenBSD.sparc''. ``sparc'' is the architecture. The various m68k architectures share packages. Package names are usually the application name and version with .tgz appended, e.g. emacs-22.3p6.tgz. Some packages can not be placed on the CD-ROM due to patent or other restrictions. To obtain such packages use the command: # pkg_add ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/4.8/packages/<arch>/<package-name> File System Layout Starting with OpenBSD 4.8, the installer has automatic disk partitioning. If your disk is large enough, it will give you a number of partitions for different purposes. It is better to have multiple partitions because the installer will automatically turn on the 'nosetuid' and 'nodev' flags for mountpoints which do not need these abilities, thus increasing your system security. OpenBSD is free software You can do with it as you like, subject to very few conditions (described at www.OpenBSD.org/policy.html). But free software isn't written without money. Network links, hardware costs, release engineering and testing work; all these things take money and significant effort on the part of those who have made this what it is. Please reward the developers who have made OpenBSD what it is, YOU can donate funds or hardware to get your name listed on our Donations page www.OpenBSD.org/donations.html. Contact Theo de Raadt or send a donation cheque in Canadian or US funds to: OpenBSD 812 - 23rd Ave SE Calgary, Alberta Canada T2G 1N8 (Make the cheque out to "Theo de Raadt": cheques made out to "OpenBSD" cannot be cashed) No major funding or cost-sharing of the project comes from any company or educational institution. Theo works full-time on improving OpenBSD and paying bills, many other developers expend spend significant quantities of time as well. For those unable to make their contributions as straightforward gifts, the OpenBSD Foundation (http://www.openbsdfoundation.org) is a Canadian not-for-profit corporation that can accept larger contributions and issue receipts. In some situations, their receipt may qualify as a business expense writeoff, so this is certainly a consideration for some organizations or businesses. There may also be exposure benefits since the Foundation may be interested in participating in press releases. In turn, the Foundation then uses these contributions to assist OpenBSD's infrastructure needs. Contact the foundation directors at email@example.com for more information. Ongoing operating funds for the project are generated by sales of CDs, tshirts, and posters, so if you like yours, please buy one for a friend. Please be generous, and OpenBSD will keep making a release every 6 months. This is our 28th release on CDROM, and we certainly hope we can continue! - Thanks to everyone who has purchased an OpenBSD CD-ROM.
