openbechede

openbechede is a fast and simple way to install OpenBSD packages and their dependencies. With openbechede you can keep your obsd packages updated. Also, you can install packages (and automatically, their dependencies), remove them, fetch new lists of packages, upgrade your system to the latest snapshot/to -stable, fetch the ports tree, install, and keep your ports up to date. openbechede logs its activity to a file you can specify.

Recent releases

  •  04 Feb 2003 03:10

    Release Notes: This release adds improved sudo code and fixes for openbechede not checking whether it could run the necessary programs, a problem that could arise when doing an "openbechede uports" without having a "port:" line in the configuration file, and some typos. Now, when you install a port using "openbechede iport" and the port is successfully installed, it's added to /etc/openbechede.conf (to check for updates).

    •  01 Feb 2003 04:04

      Release Notes: Now openbechede is able to install ports. You can fetch the ports tree, check for updates and automatically install them with this new release. There is also a no-prompt option for ports installing/updating, and some minor fixes were made.

      •  28 Jan 2003 09:23

        Release Notes: It is now possible to do a 'stableupg', which upgrades your system to -stable. When doing a snapshotupg or stableupg, MD5 sums are compared with those on the server. Files in /etc are not overwritten, and the kernel (/bsd) is backed up if 'bsd' is added to the SYSUPG variable in the configuration file. Downloads may be saved by using the KEEPDL variable. File permissions are now preserved when performing upgrades.

        •  24 Jan 2003 23:51

          Release Notes: A fix was made for an upgrade failure that occurred if you had 'openbechede' somewhere like /usr/sbin and $PWD wasn't '/'.

          •  22 Jan 2003 21:37

            Release Notes: When you were upgrading a package which was required by another one, openbechede wasn't able to upgrade it. Some error messages used to appear while upgrading. You can now run it from anywhere (it isn't compulsory to have openbechede somewhere in your path).

            Great project!
            I´m just starting with OpenBSD (coming from FreeBSD) and was looking for something like FreeBSD´s portupgrade when i found it.
            Keep doing this good job.
            By the way - Is this in the OBSD ports tree??

            my apologies
            Again, my apologies to you. I shouldn't have done it. Later I realized the sense it could make.

            The oft-used, tired refrain of spammers everywhere
            > I only wanted to share with you my [...,]

            Heard that from hundreds of spammers.

            > project, because i want to test it and see if it works okay :(

            How about posting to USENET in an appropriate newsgroup? The OpenBSD user mailing lists, if that's acceptable to their list managers?

            I don't have any machines running OpenBSD. Your mail is therefore poorly targetted and a waste of my time and resources, no matter how well-meaning you may have been.

            > Please excuse me if you felt 'spammed',

            I did not "feel spammed". I *was* spammed. Your mail was not solicited, not wanted, and not useful in any way, shape or form to me. The only possible beneficiary in the transaction is you.

            > i thought you were interested in *BSD.

            I *am* interested in *BSD. FreeBSD, specifically, as we use it in production environments. However, our model does not allow for ports to be updated, because we use a model where the OS is merely a platform for running specific applications in a custom jailed environment. I have no use for your tool, and indeed no way to test your tool even if I was running OpenBSD, which I'm not. Your thinking that I am interested in *BSD does not equate to permission to mail me, and is not in itself a good reason to.

            > I tried to notice the BSD Users Groups to give it a go and have a bit more testers. Again, Excuse me.

            People make mistakes, but spamming is a bad one. There are acceptable ways to promote projects within the *BSD communities without resorting to spam.

            Don't use this crappy spammer's project
            The luser running this project is spamming to promote it. Do NOT encourage this project and e-mail spam by using this moron's software.
