OpenBSD Install

Ohhh have it become simple to do an OpenBSD installation! Just grab an installation CD install48.iso and follow the installation.

Adding Software

pkg_add is your friend. Just provide it with a path to the package you want to install. The path can also be an url. An example for installing Python is provided below.

pkg_add -v ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/4.8/packages/i386/python-2.6.5.tgz
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/python2.6 /usr/local/bin/python
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/python2.6-config /usr/local/bin/python-config
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/pydoc2.6 /usr/local/bin/pydoc
