Anyone here have any experience with Openbsd? I would like to try it for the first time.

I really doubt there's an installer for BSD that have full DE setup, but I do find someone made an iso with full packaged iso together with DE here https://sf.net/projects/livecd-openbsd/files/LiveCD-KDE.iso/download. So, on linux should I do like this:

1)extract iso into my alternate partition
sudo dd if=bsd.iso of=/dev/sda7 #<-alternate partition

2)set up bootloader to boot BSD
in /etc/grub.d/40_custom add these lines:

menuentry "OpenBSD" {
set root=(hd0,6) #<-bsd partition
chainloader +1

and then update-grub, but what if I want to boot on encrypted partition where BSD os is located? is there any extra setup do I need to configure on the current bootloader? Please reply anon, need help to install this BSD os.


zero experience w/ OpenBSD, but it runs on UNIX, which is the same/extremely similar system as GNU/Linux, so my first step of research is the file system layout and the similarities for them all, hope your able to sus this out though cause honestly ive been interested in installing BSD myself too
