Hmmm, what's so difficult about it

While you install OpenBSD you were asked which filesets do you want to install. I'm talking about these ones:

Per default the Xorg-files will not be installed. So you will select xbase44.tgz, xetc44.tgz, xfont44.tgz, xserv44.tgz, xshare44.tgz.

After you have finished the installation and added a user (because you won't use the system as root) just type "startx" at the prompt and you will be welcomed by a minimalistic fvwm (1) windowmanager.

If you already have installed OpenBSD without the X-related files please have a look at this.

If X won't start you will first read this. And if you want more general information about the X window system in OpenBSD you should read this.

Edit: BSDfan 666 was faster!
