If you are running 6.6 -release or -stable, then 8.0.9 would be
correct. 9.0.6 is only for -current.
Do not mix -current ports with -release/-stable systems.
Choose whichever version of the OS meets your needs.
There are many advantages for both choices but they cannot be mixed.

You will need to move to -current then.
Depending on your exact situation, you might be able to test -current
first by installing it on external media first. -current also is
I have some sort of problem with my laptop. It won't run -current, but
6.6-stable is fine. Which is on a USB flash drive.
I also have a USB hard drive for the extra storage I need. Works nice.
I'm running -current on each of my two servers to let me do porting,
which requires -current.
If -current today doesn't work, then report the problems using sendbug
which sends an email to [hidden email]. Or report problems to
[hidden email], with dmesg + Xorg.log.0 + etc. See sendbug which you
can also CC to yourself locally to then send to bugs@ from another
computer if necessary by copying the file sent to your local email.
Running -current may make your life much better and always is great for
If you do upgrade to -current and wish to use ports, which isn't
actually useful for anything unless you are either working on NEW or
UPDATED ports, You will have to keep /usr/ports in sync with whatever
-current you are running. DO NOT update to ports that do not match
exactly which -current you are running!
This is because ports which are compiled need to match what the system
OpenBSD runs as a unit, not a collection such as Linux does.
Running as a single unit makes for a huge security and bug improvement.
The other reason to use ports is for a few ports that are not available
in packages, such as msttcorefonts.
