> I am going to install OpenBSD
There, I did it.
The install is really pretty much a standard OpenBSD install except
the bootblocks failed to install on both 5.1 and the 5.2 snapshot. I
really have no idea why that happened but I got around it using the
busy box shell that comes with the PMON BIOS (at least I think it
comes with it although now I can't access it again) and installed the
I had to reorganize the partitions to allocate space for OpenBSD and I
wiped out the preinstalled Linux. I will eventually dual boot OpenBSD
and some Linux distro but at least now OpenBSD is installed.
There is only one console on this version of OpenBSD (can't switch to
an alternate) so I will set up X asap. I was planning to go totally
console mode but with only one console it's not very usable. Another
reason I'll try X is the console is horribly slow. I'm not sure if
that's the framebuffer code or if there's something else going
on. Emacs loads a screenfull of data instantly but reading a man page
or listing a directory is painful. Hopefully X fixes that.
