Thanks. That's a nice clear explanation. I remember now that I did actually unmount that partition by hand before doing the file edit, so clearly that was what was being logged. But it's not true that fstab is not inspected. Here's another part of the same report:

Looking through /usr/libexec/security, I saw that there was no explicit subscript routine for the file, but you're correct, it falls under the more general /etc/$base inspection.

I just wanted to point out, the funny bit about this post is, usually people have issues with grub not wanting to chain load an OpenBSD partition; lilo works fine but requires giving lilo the right argument when you /sbin/lilo. I can't recall off hand what it is, but lilo usually dishes out its own warning, and if you look into the warning the fix for the issue is discernible.

Hello, I installed Openbsd on an ancient (PPC) macmini (2005 rev.). It's been a steep learning curve but interesting. I too use xenodm to start an X session and a tiling window manager (vanilla dwm), after similar initial issues with using a mouse. I found in the end that using an old Dell mouse seemed to sort out that problem.
