Autoinstall, best thing since sliced bread.
Happy new year everyone!
Recently I started playing with OpenBSD's autoinstall(8) function. It's simply brilliant! Can't imagine living without it anymore and I could kick myself for not having tried it sooner.
After some system freezes with a december 28 snapshot I tried a newer snapshot yesterday. Suddenly the installer aborted and dropped into the shell. As it happens a new question had been added to the installer due to ssl support that's being introduced (see also tedu@'s recent flak). The remedy couldn't have been easier: add the new question = response line
Unable to connect using https. Use http instead? = yes
I think I even did an extra install just to watch the installer fly-by again. Do I get nerd points for that?
Whoever came up with the autoinstall idea in the dev team: You're the Guv'nor!
