Default Installation problems on X24 laptop

Hey guys. After finding out that OpenBSD does apparently support WPA, I decided to put it on my laptop via an external hard drive. I booted from CD, and the installation seemed to go fine until immediately after disklabels.

HD in question is external through USB, so it was sd0 when I chose disks during the installation. These are the partitions I chose to make:
/: 150m (a)
swap: 1300m (b)
/tmp: 120m (d)
/var: 80m (e)
/usr: 30g (f)
/home: 20g (g)

There was also an existing 10 gig NTFS partition on i, which I did not overwrite.

Code:
The next step *DESTROYS* all existing data on these partitions!
Are you really sure that you're ready to proceed? [no] y

At this point it pretty much kept repeating, adding a couple lines every minute or so that always said the same thing, so I hit ^C and got back to the root prompt. Does anyone know what caused this problem?

WPA2 is not supported in OpenBSD 4.3. WPA2 support will be made public in OpenBSD 4.4 which is to be released November 1, 2008. 4.4-beta, however, can be installed today via snapshots. It is not clear that this is what you are attempting to install. Please verify what version you are installing.

Exclusively on this USB drive? Or is a portion being installed on the internal hard drive?

These messages indicate a synchronization issue with USB's transfer state. Before proceeding further, please confirm what version is being installed & whether you are installing exclusively to this external drive. If this is true, it is unclear how you will be booting from this external drive.

Is regular WPA supported in 4.3? That's what my wireless network uses. Otherwise I guess I can wait till November.

I was only installing to the external hard drive, with no changes to the internal.

Version is 4.3 generic, same CD I used to install on my other computer. I'm installing exclusively to the external drive. As for booting, I can hit F12 at startup and choose from a list of devices (CDROM, hard disk, etc); it's how I booted from the CD in the first place. If the computer can't boot from USB (pretty sure it can), well, that's life I guess. I'm just experimenting at this point.

I believe the USB port the disk is connected to uses USB1.1, not 2.0. Could this be part of the problem?

No. WPA/WPA2 support is available for only a select number of chipsets in OpenBSD 4.4. For more information, see the following:

Okay, thanks. Do you know of any way the USB synch issue can be resolved? I'd like to test getting OpenBSD working with this setup, even if I'll overwrite it in a few months.

You may want to experiment with disabling ACPI. At boot, specify:
Code:
boot -c
...& use:
Code:
UKC> disable acpi
UKC> quit
More explanatory information can be found in Section 5.8 of the FAQ:

To respectfully fix the otherwise perfect advice ocicat gave, snapshots are at 4.4-current now, you'll have to hunt around for the 4.4-beta or build a unsupported 4.4-release yourself, also the "acpi" advice can work both ways.. sometimes disabling apm and enabling acpi is the thing to makes everything work.

Good luck.
