I created this a year or two ago and never got around to posting it here- there's more than just this but I think this was decently representative of most of what I'd accomplished

List of Network Adapters supported by OpenBSD

Though not one of my more exciting posts (or it is, and I have a problem set larger than I first imagined), I remain undeterred in bringing to light some truly esoteric information- when it comes to boring, I am your man. Side note- if you were prescribed to read this by your doctor or certified sleep therapist for insomnia, please let me know in the comments below who your care specialist is, so that I might bill them for services rendered- because I guarantee this will put you to sleep. If you've made it this far you can tell them not to worry as I'll now be forced to lower my rate- but no one gets ambien for free.

Hopefully this will save someone the time it took me to find the actual list of network adapters that could be used on a current OpenBSD system. In previous years' releases, the compiled list commonly was found in the subsection of the site for each supported platform (for that particular release at that time), and thus was quite easy to locate. 

And for some of the more obscure platform releases this still holds true... adding to my confusion when looking for similar information regarding the most popular/used of the platforms, AMD64. Somewhere along the way 'things' must've changed at OBSD-HQ and that handy list was no longer available. But it had to be somewhere, right? Right??? Eventually I found it, and then decided that it was torture and no one else should have to go through it.

Actually, just hours later I've forgotten how I found this, perhaps because I find that hunting in the man pages is much like wikipedia diving- you just end up there. But that matters little, the list is what's important.

So..

PCI slot adapters
http://man.openbsd.org/OpenBSD-current/man4/pci.4

USB adapters
http://man.openbsd.org/OpenBSD-current/man4/usb.4

Yay? No. Unfortunately as you can see on those pages or infer from my attempt at wit, it's not a perfect solution. The two links will lead to a list of man page links to the software drivers the OS uses to interact with the adapters. And on those drivers' man pages are the particular models of hardware supported. The added challenge is understanding which driver is mapped to which actual model of hardware. This isn't a big deal with already-installed network adapters- simply man what you see from issuing ifconfig in the system. But for those in my situation- shopping for new adapters- the situation becomes significantly more difficult, because enough of the less expensive adapter manufacturers do not advertise the specific chipsets being used. I know the OBSD project does not market itself or attempt to become used more in any way, but changing this back might go a long way as far as expanding the user base, or making life easier on the existing user base (of which I am).

Everything so far in this post can be carried forward for years to come- a common risk of blogposts related to OpenBSD technology (because it has changed twice a year for 20 years without fail, making vast amounts of 'current' content stale). So at least you can depend on what you read above. But below, in an effort to save time for users in 2016 (including me in my shopping adventures), I've compiled a list of the models listed in all of those individual driver pages for what is supported in 2016 (6.1)

colorful, useful prompts in ksh


The Prompt

The cli is the main method of access to an OpenBSD system, and by default it uses ksh as the shell provided to the user. But by itself the shell is very minimal.




Aside from being a bit user-unfriendly, it also adds no value aside from apprising the user of whether they are acting as root or not (with the change of hash from '$' to '#'). What a lonely little prompt!

Adding Value

It does no good to simply add some flair and hope that makes life better- there needs to be some actual value added or won't make sense. Things that might make sense in a prompt:
  • time/date stamp
  • location of prompt (system and path)
  • who you are (with a little emphasis when acting as root)
Whether it's an audit or troubleshooting why something won't work, having situational awareness is a valuable resource, and it shouldn't be something that's called up. It should just be there. Enter the enhanced shell prompt (that's way more dramatic than I wanted it to be. It's just a shell prompt.)

First we'll make the changes, then explain what they're about.

Working with .profile

Jump into your favorite editor and start hacking away at your user's .profile file. It's a hidden file at /home/username/.profile directory, and even root has one at /root/.profile . Once you're in it, let's change some things around. You'll see the default .profile is quite bare:



No wonder there's no love at the prompt. OK, let's start laying the groundwork- add the following color and formatting definitions to be used in the prompt definition:

e=`printf "\033"`

end="$e[0m"
red="$e[1;31m"
green="$e[1;32m"
yellow="$e[1;33m"
blue="$e[1;34m"
magenta="$e[1;35m"
darkcyan="$e[36m"
unset e

OK, and now for the sizzle. It's the prompt definition we'll label 'PS1':

PS1='${darkcyan}[${end}$(id -un)@\h${blue}: ${end}$(date "+%a, %h-%d %l:%M%p")${darkcyan}]${end}\n${darkcyan}${PWD}${end}${darkcyan}/${end} ${blue}#${end}'


Be sure this one line is just that - one line. Then, you'll want to use this prompt definition:

export PS1

The final result should now look more like:



(notice the difference in this screenshot versus the previous one? The exact same file is being edited in both screenshots, but in the first one the full path was specified to nano, whereas in the second a little sh shorthand is used to specify the same file in the same directory I was already in.)

You won't see these changes in action until you restart your cli session- the easy way is to log out and log back in. Then you can see what this has done to your prompt:



 Contained in each 'prompting' if you will, is the user and the system they are logged into, the time/date, and on the following line the path of the location they are in. The nice thing about the color is twofold-


  • it designates on a crowded screen where user input was entered versus return system output, making it easier to discern past user behaviors.
  • it designates the user versus another user that might have a different color scheme... namely root.
And so to riff off that last point, here's what my common root .profile shell prompt appears in my systems, a very keen contrast to a typical user:



Under the hood

So what's going on in that one line that takes advantage of the definitions before it? That's in part2!

The blog is not dead; not this one, anyway

Hello, I'm Dan. I used to blog/have-a-website, and gave it up like it was a fad. Now I'm back; but before I decided whether to actually do this, I wanted to see if blogging was in fact, dead, like they say Perl or Latin or Elvis is dead. Good news...

Yes! Blogging IS dead! It is dead like Perl, or Latin, or Elvis!

What this means in dannospeak is that there is no longer the promise of a potential audience of 6 Billion; the Internet has moved on in a big way, and blogging is no longer the fountainhead of the 'internet experience' it was a decade ago.

But is it dead-dead? If you read this far, then no. Doing a bit o' research, I find this recurring thought of chasing the audience to the lowest common denominator of communication. Twitter set the standard for short bursts of communication, of which this would have been multiple tweets by now. But I find it insulting that the assumption is that the only thing people want to read is something short. Sometimes long form has it's place. Ironic that that was the shortest sentence, isn't it?

Blogging is dead because for some silly reason it's longform style held an overly-significant amount of attention for an overly-significant amount of time- it was outsized in it's influence, and now has shrunk.

Blogging isn't dead because it's now shrunk down to what it needs to be: a place where one can curl up and READ. That isn't for everyone all the time; but try getting a deeper insight on any subject on Twitter. I'll extend the challenge- try getting a deeper insight about Twitter on Twitter; the medium itself is inadequate to explain the psychology revolving around it.

But why do I personally return to blogging? Half the reasoning is for me, half for anyone that shares my interests. For me, I will forget things that are important/valuable to me, and/or esoteric in nature. I also like to gab. Regardless of the size of my readership, I feel that's as satisfying to me as it would be to anyone that would find value here. :)

Comment is not only welcome, it is appreciated. Here's to going down in flames!
