This is one of the CDROM's in the OpenBSD 2.3 package.  For more
OpenBSD information check www.OpenBSD.org.

Please refer to the following files on the two CDROM's for extensive
details on how to install OpenBSD 2.3 on your machine:




Quick installer information for people familiar with OpenBSD, and the
use of the new "disklabel -E" command.  If you are at all confused when
installing OpenBSD, read the relevant INSTALL.* file as listed above!


Play with your BIOS options, and see if you can enable booting off a
CD; try using CD1.  Not all BIOS/CDROM combinations work well.  If
not, write CD1:2.3/i386/floppy23.fs to a floppy, then boot that.  If
you are mixing OpenBSD with another operating system, you will surely
need to read the INSTALL.i386 document.


Using CD1, tell the BOOT ROM to load the file CD1:\2.3\arc\bsd.rd.  If
that does not work, create a MSDOS filesystem using your vendor's arc
setup program, copy CD1:2.3/arc/bsd.rd to there and attempt to boot


To boot off CD1, type "boot cdrom 2.3/sparc/bsd.rd", or
"b sd(0,6,0)2.3/sparc/bsd.rd" depending on your ROM version.
Alternatively, write CD1:2.3/sparc/floppy23.fs to a floppy and boot it
using "boot fd()" or "boot floppy" depending on your ROM version.
Finally, a third alternative is to write CD1:2.3/sparc/kc.fs and
CD1:2.3/sparc/inst.fs to two seperate floppies.  Then insert "kc.fs",
and boot as described above.  As soon as the floppy drive ejects a
floppy, insert "inst.fs".  Answer a bunch of questions.  Reboot from
the "kc.fs" floppy.  This time, when the floppy is ejected simply
re-insert "kc.fs" again and answer a different set of questions.


Write the simpleroot23.fs onto the start of the disk using dd on another
machine.  After moving the disk drive, use "boot -f rz(0,0,0)/bsd"
(2100/3100) or "boot 5/rz0a/bsd" (5000).  Alternatively, install via
network as described in detail in INSTALL.pmax.


Create BSD partitions according to INSTALL.amiga's preparation section.
Mount the CD2 under AmigaOS as device CD0: Next, execute the following
CLI command: "CD0:2.3/amiga/utils/loadbsd CD0:2.3/amiga/bsd.rd".


You can boot over the network by following the instructions in


Your alpha must use SRM firmware (not ARC).  If you have a CDROM
drive, you can try to boot CD2 using "boot -fi 2.3/alpha/bsd.rd dkaX"
(use "show device" to find your CDROM drive identifier). Otherwise,
write CD2:2.3/alpha/floppy.fs to a floppy and boot that by typing
"boot dva0".  If this fails, you can place bsd.rd on some other device
and boot it, or use the provided simpleroot.


Boot MacOS as normal and partition your disk with the appropriate A/UX
configurations.  Then, extract the Macside utilities from
CD1:2.3/mac68k/utils onto your hard disk.  Run Mkfs to create your
filesystems on the A/UX partitions you just made.  Then, use the
BSD/Mac68k Installer to copy all the sets in CD1:2.3/mac68k/ onto your
partitions.  Finally, you will be ready to configure the BSD/Mac68k
Booter with the location of your kernel and boot the system.


Theo has no real idea.  In the rush to get everything else done, the
install stuff for the mvme68k was never completed.  Enough pieces are
included so that a really skilled person could find a way to install
it; perhaps using netbooting.  Good luck!


Board must have OpenFirmware for booting. Boot from the CD with the
command (assuming the cdrom is SCSI id 4):
    boot /pci/scsi@c/disk@4,0:\2.3\powerpc\ofwboot 2.3/powerpc/bsd.rd
then follow the instructions. Alternatively, attempt netbooting.


Further Notes:

To make a floppy under MS-DOS, use /2.3/tools/rawrite.exe.  Under
Unix, 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


CD#1 contains a regular CVS checkout starting in /.  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:

1) copy the tree off it, (assuming the CD is mounted on /mnt):

	# mkdir /usr/src
	# cd /mnt; cp -Rp CVS Makefile bin distrib etc games gnu \
	include kerberosIV lib libexec lkm regress sbin share \
	sys usr.bin usr.sbin /usr/src

2) Or, alternatively, use a union mount with the CD below a writable

	# mkdir /usr/src
	# mount -t union -o -b /mnt /usr/src

After this, /usr/src will be a nice checkout area where all cvs(1)
commands will work OK.  Refer to http://www.OpenBSD.org/anoncvs.html
for more details.



If you want the kernel source copied off CD1, do the following:

	# mkdir -p /usr/src/sys
	# cd /mnt/sys
	# tar cf - . | (cd /usr/src/sys; tar xvf - )

Important man pages to read are config(8) and options(4).


To compile a kernel from the readonly CD mounted on /usr/src:

cd /somewhere
cp /usr/src/sys/arch/$ARCH/conf/SOMEFILE .
edit SOMEFILE (to make any changes you want)
config -s /usr/src/sys -b . SOMEFILE

$ARCH should be the architecture (e.g. i386).  If you like, do a
"make depend" too so you'll have your dependencies there next time
you do a compile.


CD#2 contains the following things:

www/		This is a CVS checkout of our web pages.  This is basically
		what the OpenBSD web pages used to look like.  You can find
		some of the OpenBSD graphics here as well...
Changelogs/	This is all of the CVS commit logs we have generated while
		working on the project.
packages/	A number of pre-compiled binary packages for the system.
		Refer to CD2:/README.packages
ports/		Our ports tree. Refer to CD2:/README.ports
distfiles/	Our ports tree distfiles. Refer to CD2:/README.ports
X11/		A CVS checkout of our version of the XFree86 source tree.


After you have installed the system, root will have mail.  Read that
mail.  Alternatively, read the file "root.mail" in the pub/OpenBSD/2.3/
directory on the ftp mirrors.
