I just got myself a PC Engines APU4D4. I miss an OpenBSD box providing home services. It’s quite simple to install and run OpenBSD on this machine. And you can even update the BIOS from OpenBSD.
My X260 only runs OpenBSD and has no CD driver. But I still need to upgrade its BIOS from time to time. And this is possible using the ISO BIOS image.
I’ve been using 1Password as a password manager for quite so time. The database was on my iCloud account so I could only use it with MacOS and iOS. But it was Free. Now that AgileBits Inc switched to subscription-based, I can’t really upgrade my apps… Time to look for something else. Strongbox + KeePass seemed nice. But I found issues when accessing the same DB from mobile and laptop. Another option is Bitwarden. It’s Open Source, available on many platforms and clients… and it can be hosted on OpenBSD using Rubywarden.
I ordered an opinionated VM on OpenBSD Amsterdam. And as any “Cloud” instances, it deserves Full Disk Encryption.
I run an OpenBSD instance with encrypted root on Vultr VPS since v6.2. It has never been reinstalled. I only used the OpenBSD native upgrade methods. Using 6.5, I used sysupgrade(8). And it went as smooth as expected. Continue reading “(sys)Upgrade encrypted OpenBSD 6.5 to 6.6 on Vultr hosting”
