Updates/Syspatch?

Unicorn
Hello,

I am new to OpenBSD and just setting up a server on my OLinuXino LIME2.
After getting it to work with the help of Johnathan Gray, I just
discovered that syspatch is not working for me, I assume because armv7
is not a supported platform.

Is there another way I can install these patches? Or should I use
-current?

Thanks in advance!

not supported by syspatch, yes.

I'm biased, I always run current. :)
If you really want to stick with release+patches, you can build from
source, following the -stable code path.  However, you will also have
to build packages from source, too.  It's usually easier (and just a
little more exciting, in the mostly fun way) to run -current, though
building from source has its own excitements (however, more terror
than fun usually).  In my opinion.

Nick.

Thank you two!

Since I am pretty new and just want a stable system, I think I will go
with -stable for now then. I looked up the instructions for building
and installing, but I just wanted to make sure:

The OLinuXino LIME2 is not a supported device, and I had to modify the
U-Boot to get it working. Will I need to change the update process
aswell, or is that unrelated?
