These are just notes for me to remember how I manage DWM patching using git rebase. If you find them useful that’s great. Basically we’re going to create 3 branches, master, openbsd and custom.

Requirements git peace and quiet Obtaining the source mkdir github cd github git clone https://git. [Read More]
Initial settings for ksh history, prompt and aliases

Put the following in
HISTFILE="$HOME/.ksh_history" HISTSIZE=5000 HISTCONTROL=ignoredups:ignorespace alias la="ls -la" alias h=history alias doas="doas "
