athn0: device timeout with AR9271

Hi,

I installed a USB Wifi card on my OpenBSD 5.8 firewall as AP and from time to time there are timeouts which
prevents any access to it anymore until I either plug out and in the Wifi dongle again or reboot.

Here is the hardware details of that Wifi USB dongle:

athn0 at uhub1 port 4 configuration 1 interface 0 "ATHEROS USB2.0 WLAN" rev 2.00/1.08 addr 4
athn0: AR9271 rev 1 (1T1R), ROM rev 13, address c4:e9:84:xx:xx:xx

There error is the following (many of these messages are repeated):

athn0: device timeout

My /etc/hostname.athn0 is the following:

inet 172.16.20.1 255.255.255.0
media autoselect
mediaopt hostap
mode 11b
chan 6
nwid <EDITED>
wpakey <EDITED>

So I was wondering what is going on here... Is my Wifi USB dongle crap? or am I maybe doing something wrong?

Let me know if I should provide any other infos...

Regards
ML

Booting bsd.rd via PXE on uefi system

Greetings OpenBSD users and developers!

I am experimenting with PXE booting on uefi based virtual machine (qemu
with ovmf uefi firmware). Currently, I am having difficulty to boot
OpenBSD bsd.rd installer via PXE with uefi firmware.

Supplying pxeboot as uefi pxe boot file would lead to unsupported format
error. Supplying BOOTX64.EFI as pxe boot file doesn't bring the nice
OpenBSD boot prompt. Instead, BOOTX64.EFI will only stuck at probing
device.

Is there a way to boot OpenBSD ramdisk on uefi system via PXE?

Thanks.

spreed server

Has anyone tried to build the spreed server?
https://github.com/strukturag/spreed-webrtc

I tried, but the configure would not run with openbsd automake, autoconf and
m4 packages.
When I loaded the GNU equivalents, the configure ran but the makefile
produced did not work,
probably because the openbsd packages were not used.

Driving 4k Display for OpenBSD Workstation

My goal for this project is to have an OpenBSD workstation (I run
-current) built around 4k displays. I have a Dell P4317W 4k display on
order and I am going to order a couple of other 4k displays as well. I
have a Radeon HD 6870 Eyefinity 6 card which should be supported by
radeondrm(4) but it does not support 4k displays at 60Hz. There is a
Radeon HD 7750 card that also has six Mini DisplayPort connectors and
does support 4k displays but I am not totally clear if it will work well
with radeondrm(4). Reading the archives is not quite clear on this.

The alternative is to use a Skylake processor with integrated graphics
and use efifb(4) and wsfb(4) for now which I presume would work well
enough although not as well as something supported by inteldrm(4). I am
using my ThinkPad X260 with efifb(4) and wsfb(4) which works pretty well
but it would be nice to have properly accelerated Xorg.

Any recommendations? Thank you.

Bryan

Question on Theo's dotSecurity paper

Hi,

Quick question about Theo de Raadt's "Presentations: dotSecurity
2016"[1]. Slide 11 says "Most violations result in process being killed",
not all violations?

Just wanted clarification here.

Thanks,

Install OpenBSD on disks larger than 2TB

Hey,
i am using OpenBSD with two harddrives. Both of them are 2 TB and i put 
them in a Raid 1 (mirroring) using softraid0. It works perfect, the 
system boots from the raid 1 and runs perfectly.

Sadly now 2 TB is not enought disc space anymore and i got some new 4TB 
drives. I suceeded in crating a raid 1 on them, but i am unable to boot 
of those drives. Do you have any ideas what i could try next?

Here is what i did so far:

fdisk -igy sd0
fdisk -igy sd1
disklabel -E sd0 (created a partition of type RAID)
disklabel -E sd1 (created the same disklayout)
bioctl -c1 -l sd0a,sd1a softraid0 (resulted in sd2 beeing created)

I can install OpenBSD on the new sd2 but i cannot boot from it. I used 
the latest snapshot to try this.

Any ideas?
Thanks and greetings
Leo

strange behaviour spamd

Hi there,

I noticed that a trapped ip gets whitelisted when there are still 
greylisted messages. this shouldn't happen when I use the -a -t switches 
to trap the ip or do I miss something here ?
