You're welcome. Install of 6.4 completed. I'm now pulling in my package sets. Fun!

Very cool! /etc/installurl is preconfigured so syspatch etc. works out of the box after installation.

No. Previously the file was created only if the installed filesets were obtained via a network mirror. This new functionality was added to src/distrib/miniroot/install.sub in August.
Code:
----------------------------
revision 1.1101
date: 2018/08/22 16:53:36;  author: tb;  state: Exp;  lines: +4 -3;  commitid: C61YooA3Nv37VdUd;
Let /etc/installurl default to cdn.openbsd.org if it doesn't exist and no
official mirror was used. This way, people doing installs without network
access also get working pkg_add and syspatch experience out of the box.

Idea from tj
ok halex, job (who made it all possible), deraadt

And it is a fantastic release, steady improvements across the board. Although it would have been better if they knew about the X-hole bug to fix and delay a week or so.

Thumbs up

Thanks, I should have mentioned its been patched.
Having xenodm launch X was already a fix and so I was never affected.

No problem - I've used xenodm(1)/xdm(1) for quite a few years as well.
