Default Install OpenBSD 3.6

Hi,

We have problem install opensbd 3.6. We cannot upgrade to new version as afraid our development software will not work on new version.

We use openbsd 3.6 and cross compilation for our development software. We stuck on doing partitioning. Please assist us.

Thanks.

OpenBSD 3.6 was released in November 2004:

http://www.openbsd.org/36.html

...& has not been officially supported for five years. As time continues to progress, fewer & fewer people will even remember the details of 3.6, & no one is officially obligated to provide support. If anyone does provide any insight, it is out of their own generosity & personal sense of altruism. Basing business decisions on other people's generosity is a feeble business plan. At some point, you will need to move into the modern world.

Having said that, OpenBSD's install script is simply calling the following commands:

# fdisk -e wd0
# disklabel -E wd0

...if the boot disk is IDE. If it is SCSI, the commands called are:

# fdisk -e sd0
# disklabel -E sd0

Details on usage can be found in the fdisk(8) & disklabel(8) manpages. Section 4.5.3 of the current FAQ will be of limited use given that automatic creation of disklabel(8) partitions is a recently available feature not present in OpenBSD 3.6.

If partitioning is confusing you, please, ask a specific question to get a specific answer.

It is possible your question can be answered, but we won't know that until you actually ask it.

I've spent the weekend with a laptop and a small extern SCSI HD and "played" with fdisk and disklabel backwards and forwards. I can't tell you what to do, but if you did what I did, it would be second nature to you over a weekend or week of "playing" with those two commands. If you can't find the answer by asking, learn the answer by doing. Hope that helps. Good Luck.

Zabidin2 has yet to ask. "We are stuck" is not a question.
