OpenBSD installation and upgrade
The OpenBSD installer allows user-created sets and scripts to complement and modify the files from a default install prior to rebooting.
Like the official file sets, generic
-s).tgz sets are
compressed tar(1) archives rooted in / and untarred with
siteXY sets must be included in index.txt in order to be fetched via HTTP(S) and selectable in the installer.
If they exist and are executable, /install.site and /upgrade.site are run at the end of the install and upgrade process, respectively, with chroot(8) based at the system's root.
- Generic set.
- Host-specific set.
- Generic post-upgrade script.
- Generic post-install script.
Create site70 sets and update the index:
# tar -czhf site70.tgz generic/ # tar -czhf site70-puffy.tgz puffy/ # ls -lT > index.txt
Upgrade packages(7) upon reboot after sysupgrade(8) upgraded the system:
# cat <<- EOF >> /upgrade.site echo 'pkg_add -Iu' >>/etc/rc.firsttime EOF # chmod +x /upgrade.site # sysupgrade
autoinstall(8), rc(8), sysupgrade(8)
