if you like one of them, you could like others (aka self-promoting of tools for OpenBSD - all available in ports):
- sysclean : list obsolete files between OpenBSD upgrades (aka delete old stuff between upgrades)
- checkrestart : help to find processes that need restarting after upgrade (aka which service to restart after pkg_add -u)
- upobsd : download, verify and patch bsd.rd image (aka upgrading the system without hands)
@cynicalsecurity @semarie nowadays i guess openbsd makes even way more sense than before, didnt realise how shit linux could get despite grsecurity security features ;p stopped using openbsd at 3.3 en lieu of grsec’ed slackware :pppp alot more stuff was missing :p though it kinda still is, alot of pax/grsec stuff wasnt implemented in obsd at all :(
@semarie So, if I read it correctly, this reduces a version upgrade to “download & patch” with upobsd, reboot into bsd.rd, sysmerge & packages.
This already cuts down on my time as I still have to console in but at least I don’t have to drone through the bsd.rd questions.
As all my machines are standardised SuperMicro with network connections on the same interfaces this gives me a single response script (good) and reduces the errors.
