OpenBSD OpenBSD 4.1 has been released. "We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 4.1. This is our 21st release on CD-ROM (and 22nd via FTP). We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of ten years with only two remote holes in the default install. As in our previous releases, 4.1 provides significant improvements, including new features, in nearly all areas of the system."

"Since xorg has autodetecting functions (xorg --configure, if I remember correctly), the xorg.conf is created automatically. New xorg versions autodetect everything at startup, so there's no need for a config file."

X.org does that already. I havent had to use a configuration file for at least a year, probably more.

"I've got no OpenBSD system at hand to verify. "

XDM/GDM/KDM does not run on a tty on OpenBSD (at least not on x86). You start them from rc/rc.local.

"Using the ports usually is only neccessary where applications can be configured with special abilites (such as mplayer with its many plugins) or when a certain grade of optimization is needed and intended."

On OpenBSD there are packages for most flavors. Unless you really need to, you're not supposed to use the ports tree.
