So just send the errors with uname -a on whatever packages I install?
Is it possible to dualboot stable with current on ppc?

I always install packages within a script(1) session so I have a log file. And I use pkg_add with some '-v' options to coach pkg_add to be more verbose.

From pkg_add(1):
Code:
     -v       Turn on verbose output.  Several -v turn on more verbose output.
              By default, pkg_add is almost completely silent, but it reacts
              to keyboard status requests (see stty(1)).  -v turns on basic
              messages, -vv adds relevant system operations, -vvv shows most
              internal computations apart from individual file/directory
              additions, -vvvv also shows dependencies adjustments, and -vvvvv
              shows everything.
RE: dual booting OpenBSD stable and current.

On a single disk it is a little bit problematic. It can be done, I think jggimi does it, but I only do it on machines where I have a second disk. First disk gets stable or a current snapshot. The second disk a newer snapshot. And after some time a even newer snapshot on the first. That way I always can fall back on a working system
BTW I have no experience with ppc
