Updating openbsd

https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openssh-6.6gz If you are installing Open SSH 6.6 on Open BSD 5.4 or earlier, you will need the the following patch: https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openbsd54_6.6.patch.Just posting a follow up question: I have a wireless nic that requires the firmware to be downloaded, what would be the best way to update the system with that in mind? I suspect you have note found that your follow-up question has been split from its parent thread.I've used Free BSD for about 5 years - server/Desktop - and I've tended to take my apt-get/yum upgrade everything habits along with me ( I admin Debian/RHEL/Cent boxes as well -- I know, I know ...should be more discerning regardless of platform ). Then just clean up any messes afterwards ..they occur.This, I realize, is a fairly excessive un-BSD way to do things. Do you run a portaudit/portversion -- check output then update (make deinstall ...etc) after careful consideration? I see myself cvsupping the ports tree, running the "out of date" script, then just upgrading critical ports --- but leaving the kernel/binaries alone and just upgrading every six months.Go to the Open BSD mirror list and choose one near you. You can still follow the recommended upgrade procedure. Set PKG_PATH to the packages directory of your closest FTP mirror and run pkg_add -ui Walk away.


https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openssh-7.2gz If you are installing Open SSH 7.2 on Open BSD 5.7 or 5.8, you will need the the following patch: https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/Open SSH/openbsd58_7.2.patch.

I first download the new firmware (wpi*.tgz) to my ~/ $ sudo pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/* $ export PKG_PATH=~/ $ sudo pkg_add wpi*$ sudo reboot Are you aware that command will delete all installed packages on Open BSD?
