OpenBSD on the Toshiba A200-237
Babysteps in OpenBSD
In order to get a little bit more acquainted with OpenBSD I created a dualboot installation on my Toshiba A200-237 laptop.
Fdisk and Grub
In Linux using fdisk I created a partition for OpenBSD. The partition type for OpenBSD is A6. After installing OpenBSD on that partition a few lines need to be added to /boot/grub/menu.1st in order to boot OpenBSD.
Wifi and OpenBSD
The iwn-driver recognizes the Intel Wireless WiFi 4965AGN chip.
Start wpa connection
The following command connects with the wireless accesspoint with WPA:
ifconfig iwn0 nwid <my_ssid> wpa wpapsk `wpa-psk <my_ssid> <my_wpa_key>`where <my_ssid> is the SSID of the accesspoint and <my_wpa_key> is the WPA-PSK-key.
