Default Snapshots packages in OpenBSD release

Hi all,

I'm using an OpenBSD 6.5 release, is is possible to update the installed ports to the snapshots ports using pkg_add -u -D snap? would my OpenBSD work properly after, or I can only upgrade my ports to the stable release ?

Thanks,

No. You cannot mix -release libraries and -release ABIs with -current packages.

However, you are able to use -stable ports/packages with a -release system, since there are no ABI changes.

If you use one of the architectures supported with -stable packages starting with 6.5-release, you can install or update them with pkg_add(1). The path to -stable packages is added automatically if you use an installurl(5), otherwise you must add the path to your $PKG_PATH before -release packages: https://<your local mirror>/pub/OpenBSD/<release>/packages-stable/<arch>/

Another option would be to use sysupgrade(8) to move from 6.5 to a snapshot, and then you can use the combination of sysupgrade and pkg_add -u to effectively do rolling release.

sysupgrade was backported to 6.5-stable, so you can grab that to get started.
