PCBSD or OpenBSD?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 27, 2011
I've been using Ubuntu for a while now and want to start looking at non-Ubuntu based OS's. I really got looking at -BSD based OS's and have come across PC and Open. Which one would be the best for a person just starting into the BSD world? I know OpenBSD is more secure, but I've read that because of that security it's almost useless to the average user.
I do also have PC-BSD already downloaded and on a CD. It booted fine and worked perfectly with all my hardware.
Any tips on this, and any guides you know of to work from would be cool!
Claim: OpenBSD security a myth
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 25, 2010
An argument often made by proponents of OpenBSD is the extensive code auditing performed on the base system to make sure no vulnerabilities are present. The goal is to produce quality code as most vulnerabilities are caused by errors in the source code. This a noble approach, and it has worked well for the OpenBSD project, with the base system having considerably less vulnerabilities than many other operating systems.
Used as an indicator to gauge the security of OpenBSD however, it is worthless. The reason being is that as soon as a service is enabled or software from the ports tree installed, it is no longer the default install and the possibility of introduced vulnerabilities is equal to any other platform. Much like software certified against the common criteria, as soon as an external variable is introduced the certification, or in this case the claim can no longer be considered relevant...

use OpenBSD as a router and firewall
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 11, 2009
I have an older IBM box that I have dumped 4 networks cards into the system. My main goal is run OpenBSD and turn the box into a VPN Gateway/Router/Firewall. I know this is not a ubuntu install, but since everyone is so helpful, i thought i would ask.
Does anyone have procedures on how to configure a setup of this type or can someone point me in the right direction?
Also, would it be easier for me to use Cent OS, Ubuntu or Fedora for this model?
Howto create a bootable OpenBSD install CD
- date: September 19, 2007
Ok, if you don't have money or can't wait for your cd to be delivered to you then you can make your own.
These instructions are for OpenBSD 4.1 i386 arch.
Open a terminal:
~ $ cd /tmp
/tmp $ mkdir -p OpenBSD/4.1/i386
/tmp $ cd OpenBSD/4.1/i386
/tmp/OpenBSD/4.1/i386 $ wget ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/4.1/i386/*
/tmp/OpenBSD/4.1/i386 $ cd ../../
/tmp/OpenBSD $ mkisofs -v -r -T -J -V "OpenBSD41" -b 4.1/i386/cdrom41.fs -c boot.catalog -o OpenBSD41.iso /tmp/OpenBSD/
/tmp/OpenBSD $ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 3 mips root 4096 2007-09-19 08:14 4.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 mips root 233990144 2007-09-19 08:21 OpenBSD41.iso
/tmp/OpenBSD $ md5sum OpenBSD41.iso

The intention of this thread is pretty light-hearted.
Some questions, really generic stuff...
1. Have you used OpenBSD?
2. Do you like OpenBSD? (Why?)
3. Do you dislike OpenBSD? (Why?)
xrdp authenticates but does not load X server (RDP)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 16, 2007
I'm trying out xrdp 0.4.0 on Slackware 12 and currently the Remote Desktop server is not working for me. I see the login screen on my server and choose sesman-X11rdp. It says...
Login successful for window display 10
When I look in the sesman.log file to see what "some problem" is I find...
starting Xrdp session...
starting sessvc - xpid=5451 - wmpid=5450
error starting X server - user **** - pid 5451
errno: 2, description: No such file or directory
execve parameter list: 9
argv = X11rdp
argv = :10
argv = -geometry
argv = 800x600
argv = -depth
argv = 24
argv = -bs
argv = -ac
argv = (null)
I don't know what the first argument is supposed to represent, but if it is the file it is trying to load it makes sense that it cannot find it; it does not exist. It SHOULD be trying to load kde using startkde...
Problems Connecting to xrdp xfce desktop after Ubuntu Upgrade
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2012
Hi, I just upgraded my linux box from 11.10 to 12.04 last night. Everything went smooth except for one issue. I use xrdp over ssh to connect to the machine remotely. After the upgrade on the first boot I had an issue where it said failed to load gnome. Well, I found a rather hidden drop down menu in the default x-gui and managed to get back to my xfce desktop by choosing it. So, that's not an issue anymore when logged in locally.
The last time I did an upgrade I didn't have this remote issue with it trying to load gnome. It just stuck with the default xfce which is what I want because this is an old machine and xfce works great remotely.
So, now when I try to connect to my ubuntu machine remotely using Windows mstsc (remote desktop)I get the same failed to load gnome message I got on first boot up. However, I can't change anything on the remote session to choose xfce like I did locally. Here's my screen shots and my xrdp.ini file.
I can't determine what gui/session environme
