First Five Minutes on OpenBSD 6.2

Install the system

Patch the system

First, su -l into root. You should land in the root home directory.

su -l

Next, download the openup utility from M:Tier which will patch the system and update packages automatically. It uses only built-in tools, so there are no dependencies.

ftp https://stable.mtier.org/openup

Then make it executable.

chmod +x openup

At this point you should run openup and let it run.

./openup

Then reboot to make sure all kernel changes are applied.

reboot
