I must say, I'm really liking OpenBSD. I'm seriously considering switching my other machines (which currently run Debian and Arch Linux).
I enjoy this.

As you wish, I've installed screenfetch only for this screenshot (I don't keep bash scripts in my system)

Here's my Thinkpad W520 running a fresh build of OpenBSD 6.2 with Fluxbox, Gkrellm, Eterm, Xfe, GIMP and Audacious.

I wasn't getting that screenfetch error with OpenBSD 6.1.

The bit of screenfetch that gets the memory in OpenBSD was written by me so that's gone wrong somehow.

The strange thing is that I'm using -current and it works here:



I will look into this more tonight.

I think you've used the latest upstream version (I have the same errors if I use that) so somebody must have broken my code

Try sysutils/screenfetch instead, that version works fine.

I will try to fix the errors upstream and look at updating the port.

@all: sorry for the off topic.

I was reading about QEMU, and found it in the OpenBsd 6.2 packages, so now I have
a QEMU vm, running Minix 3 , on OpenBsd as the host. Works pretty good.

===========================

============
This is great to me, I did not have a extra PC I could use for Minix 3, but now I can work with it on a VM , and on OpenBsd.

Believe it or not, I own the domain in the list, but I've not used it yet.

Looks good, except the image is way to big, it is not very hard to make and use a thumbnail, especially if you have your own domain and server, I use a little shell script
I made for ksh shell, using some bash scripts I modified, It takes the screenshot, makes the thumbnail, then uploads it to my "storage" server. (also powered with OpenBsd)

I decided I wanted it to prompt me for the name of the screen shot, so I can name the screen shot , as needed, also changed to use the 'import' command,
instead of 'xwd'


Just now, changed it to 15% instead of 25% on the resizing ,...

FVWM, for that cool retro look...



This desktop is only using ~130Megs, is really fast and is rock solid. FVWM is an amazing WM.

Default Joy...

Feast your eyes on my new IBM Thinkpad T43 running OpenBSD 6.2 with Intel Pentium M @ 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM, 100GB TravelStar PATA HDD @ 7200RPM, 14.1" TFT display at 1024x768, DVD±RW, Intel 915PM Northbridge and an ATI Mobility Radeon X300 with 64MB on-chip dedicated RAM.

The guy who owned this said he babied it and he wasn't lying. It looks and runs like new and is a pleasure to type on. All things considered, I'm assigning it light duty and it now serves as my text editor.

I keep a port of fluxbox that tracks HEAD if you'd like: https://github.com/jasperla/openbsd-...er/x11/fluxbox
