there is less for me to do after the new install. portmap is off by default, fstab is sane by default. watch out for X problems if you switch from X to a vterm and back - due to X not running as root things arent permed right. pf from 3.1-3.2 went through a lot of changes, it's rather beautiful now. there are a number of new ports as well. the release notice and plus31.html cover everything else.

All in all, this release is another wonderful step forward.

Nice, it's nice to hear rc.conf looks better than in the past, I'll be looking forward to those changes in pf as well.

i got my cd's in the mail today. the whole insert follows a day in the life of Agent Puff Pond, as he foils yet another attempted system crash by Doctor S Kitty.

how come i dont see screaming electron in the 'donations' list????
by 3.3 that list will need a whole cd of its own

That's a good and worthwhile idea frisco, If I had any significant amount of money to offer the OpenBSD project I would do it, perhaps.....

Perhaps a drive here on screaming electron where all members could donate what ever pocket change they possess might be worthwhile.

Up until know I have supported the project three ways.
1. Always ordering each release.
2. Buying new t-shirts whenever they come out.
3. Buying posters when they are released.

Hey hey...just got 3.2 up and running last night. Was fairly straight forward install. Simle and easy.

However, I had a little problem getting the firewall up and running correctly with NAT. The reason was that I was unaware that pf was changed in 3.2. A quick trip with lynx to openbsd.org and the FAQ was all I needed. :)

Once I had my pf.conf in the correct order, everything was ran smooth.

I also noticed what frisco said:

portmap is off by default, fstab is sane by default

I kept notes from my last install (still learning :D ). And when I went to make some basic changes to shut items off, I noticed portmap was off by default. Pretty cool stuff.

Anyways, i'm going to start a quick thread about patches again...I have a question that I came across last night when installing the first patch for 3.2..

I'll see everyone over in the new thread. :)

Its a great release. the slightly saner fstab and portmap off by default were welcome additions as was the stripping out of even more suid binaries. It saved me a bit of time on my install

Hmmmm...., anyone heard anything about quotas? Better, anyone know if quotas are indeed hosed with 3.2? Some people were talking about that in #openbsd the other night on OPN.
