Anyone booted OpenBSD natively from Grub?
I mean not as a chainloader. Thanks.
What's your (presumably sensible) objection to chainloading?
Do you bother to Google, esp. Linux Google, for the answer? I found 3 good links in the 1st 3 results.
Do you mean like:
kernel /boot/loader ?
Thanks for the links/examples, but all that information is for FreeBSD which I am already booting directly with Grub. OpenBSD doesn't work the same way. That information doesn't apply.
from the grub manual
GRUB can load NetBSD a.out and ELF directly, follow these steps:
Set GRUB's root device with root (see root).
Load the kernel with kernel (see kernel). You should append the ugly option --type=netbsd, if you want to load an ELF kernel, like this:
grub> kernel --type=netbsd /netbsd-elf
Run boot (see boot).
For now, however, GRUB doesn't allow you to pass kernel parameters, so it may be better to chain-load it instead. For more information, please see Chain-loading.
Node: OpenBSD, Next: DOS/Windows, Previous: NetBSD, Up: OS-specific notes
The booting instruction is exactly the same as for NetBSD (see NetBSD).
2) so it looks like chainloader is the best afterall?
