The OpenBSD project produces a free, multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system. Its goals emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security, and integrated cryptography. OpenBSD supports binary emulation of most programs from SVR4 (Solaris), FreeBSD, Linux, BSD/OS, SunOS, and HP-UX.
iogen is an I/O generator. It forks child processes that each run a mix of reads and writes. The idea is to generate heavily fragmented files to make the hardware suffer as much as possible. This tool has been used to test filesystems, drivers, firmware, and hardware devices. It is by no means meant as a performance measuring tool since it tries to recreate the worst case scenario I/O.
The epitome suite consists of several discrete pieces that provide storage deduplication services. Deduplication is defined as the elimination of redundant data. The idea behind epitome is to provide a WORM-based archive/backup mechanism that is lossless and offers permanent storage with inherent data protection properties. Additionally, it provides several metadata formats and back-ends to meet several usage models. It provides a number of services to enable three major archiving technologies: CAS, SIS, and DEDUP.
spectrwm is a minimalistic tiling window manager that tries to stay out of the way so that valuable screen real estate can be used for much more important stuff. It has sane defaults and does not require one to learn a language to do any configuration. It was written by hackers for hackers and it strives to be small, compact, and fast.
adsuck is a small DNS server that spoofs blacklisted addresses and forwards all other queries. The idea is to be able to prevent connections to undesirable sites such as ad servers, crawlers, etc. It can be used locally, for the road warrior, or on the network perimeter in order to protect local machines from malicious sites.
xmlsd is a library that wraps expat in order to simplify XML use in C programs as well as adding rigid rules to an XML structure. The idea is to have XML structures that can be passed over the network with implicit parameter verification. This in turn enables back and forth chattering between applications.
exude is a simple to use memory debugger. It enhances standard memory allocation calls with simple replacements that add just a little more functionality, such as keeping track of whether memory was previously allocated, and prevents common errors such as double frees, memory leaks, and so on.
clens is a convenience library that aids in porting code from OpenBSD to different operating systems. Operating systems traditionally have different enough APIs that porting code is painful and can litter pretty code with ugly #ifdefs. In order to keep code readable and drastically reduce the number of #ifdefs needed, clens brings other APIs or missing functions into specific OS "focus".
There is a pretty expansive man page in the tarball and online at: http://opensource.conformal.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?xxxterm
Various Linux distros handle the installation for you. You might want to try to give those a go. If you want to use the source then the procedure is: cd linux && make && make install
There are several linux ports out there. I have seen Ubuntu, SLES, Arch, Debian and some others.
