I think OpenBSD is growing on me. I've been running it as -current for the last month. Did a fresh installation for 6.8. It was like the release just showed up on the front page as a nice little surprise. I subscribed to some mailing lists to make sure it's not as much of a surprise with 6.9.

Nice!! I'm relatively new to OpenBSD I started running it 8 years ago with version 5.0; it's grown on me too. Releases come on November 1st and May 1st, about every 6 months. The releases come around those release dates.

Thumbs up

I followed the FAQ and release(8) to build 6.7-stable. I learned a lot about how the system works. Figured out how to do an upgrade from 6.7 to 6.8 with an encrypted softraid0 partition. Not very different than how such an install works with Slackware, minus ports and packages.

8 years is a long time to still consider yourself new. I have lots to learn I guess with such a "get your hands dirty" operating system. I am finding the challenges acceptable and worth the effort to learn all there is to know about the subject.

I'm running 6.8 on 1 amd64 laptop and 2 arm64 raspberry pi3. All my hardware just works. I am torn between keeping my network gateway, switch, and firewall hardware on Slackware ARM 14.2 or to switch to openbsd.

What do you guys think?

I think that just comes down to personal choice.

Keeping tabs on just one O/S is usually easier, but not putting all your eggs in the one basket could be useful too.


(I mainly just keep my eye on OpenBSD, do the occasional installation to keep my hand in, just in case Linux gets taken over by the commercial interests that have been changing things to suit their way of doing business.)

I agree with fatmac. It really comes down to personal choice and your particular use case, mralk3. I think that OpenBSD is a good fit for your network infrastructure. I use both Slackware and OpenBSD and like them a lot. It's relatively straightforward to dual boot Slackware and OpenBSD using lilo then you get the best of both worlds. Right now I'm running OpenBSD 6.8 on my older T410 Thinkpad, it runs well.

Does dual booting work with full disk encryption for Slackware and OpenBSD? I like to keep my laptop disk encrypted. My internal disk is a samsung evo 256 GB SSD, so disk space is a bit limited when dual booting. I may be able to swap the DVD drive for a 2.5 SATA disk to get more space.

That one I don't know. When I dual boot I fon't use full disk encryption.

A 236 GB HD is more than enough space to dual boot with depending on how many applications you want to install. When you partition your HD when you install Slackware with cfdisk or fdisk select A6 for the OpenBSD partition.

I started a thread about dual booting Slackware and OpenBSD a while back. You may find it useful, mralk3.

I replaced the DVD rom with a 2.5 inch SATA 500GB metal spinner that has OpenBSD and have Slackware on my SSD. Dual booting the two disks. I honestly do not notice any speed difference between obsd on a ssd vs a hd.

Nice. I've partitioned my TB HD into swap, /, /home, and my OpenBSD partition. OpenBSD is running well on XFCE 4.14.

Xfce 4.14 was one of the reasons I wanted to install obsd. I also like the fact that a lot of security features I like are implemented by default. With Linux, I had to recompile a lot of stuff, which led me to Gentoo, and I think the amount of work is overkill. In obsd, web browsers are already sandboxed, kernel hardened, unveil and pledge deployed with most of the software, and pf is brilliant. No more messing around with iptables/nftables, apparmor, selinux, and rebuilding a kernel. I plan to follow openbsd-stable as updates come out. My only complaint is obsd is not able to access LUKS LVM ext4 file systems. But I guess thats what my NAS is for,

Yes. XFCE 4.14 is wonderful. I also appreciate the syspatch utility. Binary security patches are simple to install. Applying security patches before the advent of syspatch was a bit more work.
