Yaifo Update 2

OpenBSDFollowing up on a previous post about YAIFO (Yet Another Installer For OpenBSD), the Yaifo site seems to still be down.

I had previously patched the Yaifo distribution to update it for OpenBSD 4.0. But, I only patched the i386 part of the tree (and its RAMDISK_YAIFO file). Since I needed Yaifo today to upgrade a Sparc64 box, I took the time to bring the RAMDISK_YAIFO kernel files for sparc, sparc64 and alpha up to 4.0 too.

You can download my new OpenBSD 4.0 Yaifo 0.2 patch file or the patched tarball. You can still download my copy of the original Yaifo 0.2 distribution.

Let me know if you have any problems (or successes).


  1. Hey! That's great! I was searching for ways to binary update and remote upgrade OpenBSD. Found your site that way. Great stuff! :)

    I see that you provide binpatches for 4.1. But I don't see any mention of Yaifo for upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1. Are you still maintaining it?

    ps. I don't run OpenBSD currently. I plan to, however, that's why I was searching on how one can update/ upgrade stuff.

  2. It takes a little bit of work to integrate the changes from 4.0->4.1 into Yaifo's files. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but will soon. -ME
