Default Failed Installs

Once I get into the installation where I had to retrieve the sets I am not having any luck...

I'll choose FTP and I've chose about 10 different servers... It will show

"could not find any sets

the sets are bsd bsd.[x] etc etc etc etc etc" and then say
Where are the sets located [http, ftp, cd etc etc]"

and then ask me http cd ftp etc again, i've tried http as well and no luck

Any idea what's going on

Do you have a firewall upstream which is blocking port 20 & 21 ftp traffic?

Possibly, I'm connecting from a router.

Try http rather than ftp.

A few comments/questions:
  • What CD are you using to install? If you are using either the official CD set or install43.iso, the file sets are on the disc.
  • Can you successfully ping the servers?

Just to clarify ocicat's message: cd43.iso is the ramdisk kernel in a bootable cd image, usable for network installs and rescues. It appears you're having network trouble using it. The other image, install43.iso, is the ramdisk kernel in a bootable cd image, plus all of the installation files. You can install from cd if that is the image you have booted.

FWIW, I can get the latest snapshots and relevant packages from 2 ftp and 2 http servers. I say "latest".
Other servers (remember mirrors are services not paid for) can have a day to a week delay. Some are listed while still on 4.2. Some do not allow more than #x connections, or only allow connections from specific geo zones, some are paid for services allowing #y not paying connections.
Got my two working http servers, never will make their URL public

Alright, at first I tried the cd43.iso. the one that just boots up and i can grab ftp / http from. That did no good so I tried install43.iso and it couldn't find the sets on the CD... so I put all of the sets on a CD manually and it could find all but 3 ( extension problems it said )

I am astonished that install43.iso couldn't find the sets, as those sets are the reason the image is a couple of hundred MBs.

If you want to build a CD with the filesets in them yourself, and get it to work, you must create a CD9660 file system with Rock Ridge extensions. (Rock Ridge is for Unix, Joliet is for Windows). Your CD-creating software should have that option.

I was astonished too because I didn't plan on downloading the 200MB's at first.. I am thinking maybe they are in a different directory then the default... but I don't know. I'll have to figure something out I guess.

I got it installed.. I connected directly from modem and it was able to grab off FTP.

Now.. I am new to OpenBSD obviously. I have a install43.iso burned, btw. but.. i need to get ports but I can't wget, so I see I need to install wget. There isn't a wget package in /var/db/pkg/ and I can't mount my cdrom to install ports from CD.

What are my options?

EDIT: Just read about using "FTP" ;/ ill change this if anything else erupts.

The OpenBSD project recommends installing applications through pre-compiled packages as opposed to compiling yourself unless there is an extenuating circumstance requiring building from source. You will save yourself significant time & aggravation by taking the time now to study the packages/ports system which is covered in Section 15 of the FAQ:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq15.html

...but if you do want to get the ports tree, you can do so through anonymous CVS which is described at the following:

http://openbsd.org/anoncvs.html

...and you should very carefully study Section 5.3 of the FAQ:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#Bld

Note that the CVS tag for 4.3-release is OPENBSD_4_3_BASE. Section 5.3.3 discusses 4.3-current & 4.3-stable. Be very careful to keep the flavor of the ports tree consistent with the flavor of the installed system. Failure to heed this warning can result in very strange behaviour:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq15.html#NoFun

Again, staying with pre-built packages is significantly simpler.

Use ftp(1), it supports both FTP and HTTP connections.. wget is so GNU.

Study the manpage to growfs(8). Be aware that there needs to be free space contiguous to the existing partition in order for this to work.

I think it will be easier if I just reinstall OpenBSD.

Perhaps KDE the wrong thing to install via dial-up.

Take a look at the size of the various ISO images in the link in my .sig; you'll find a table of them on the downloads page. Note that the KDE image is 1.2GB for i386 and 1.4GB for amd64. I think a couple of days won't be long enough.

Sorry if I wrote that poorly. I'm on cable... not dialup. Which is why I said bout being connected from router and having to connect directly from the modem. :s

I've so far

Cd /usr
Ftp ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/4.3/ports.tar.gz
Tar zxf ports.tar.gz

There isn't any content obviously so I believe that's why its taking soooo long to install kde.

Can you explain this statement?

The ports tree is simply a hierarchy of makefiles, patches, & other clerical support files needed by the overall system. The ports tree does not include source code as this is downloaded separately when the port is built.

Likewise, downloading the ports tree is only useful if you intend on building ports from source. Having the ports tree installed will not help or hinder use of packages through pkg_add(8).

Again, familiarizing yourself with Section 15 of the FAQ can save you a lot of time & aggravation:
