OpenBSD: The Hard Way To Do Things

Friday June 04, 2010 by cl0secall

OpenBSD has proven to be quite a challenge. Let's start at the install. Unlike FreeBSD, OpenBSD doesn't have a USB stick install image. This meant, ultimately, that I needed to obtain a USB DVD drive to be able to install the OS. Additionally, I've encountered numerous roadblocks to installing Eclipse. It seems that a lot of the eclipse documentation is predicated on the reader's relatively intimate knowledge and experience with Java development in general, and the tools used to build eclipse more specifically. I haven't had a lot of time to pursue the Eclipse development, so perhaps I'll forgo eclipse for the moment and begin porting the SDK instead. I haven't decided yet.
