Strictly on the console, so no GUI, how can I create similar on OpenBSD, like as YAST uses for SLES?

enter image description here

Cannot find any ncurses or diag packages on OpenBSD ports.

    OpenBSD has ncurses in its base. – Thomas Dickey Dec 18 '17 at 21:01
$ ls -d /usr/ports/*/dia*
/usr/ports/graphics/dia/   /usr/ports/misc/dialog/
$ cat /usr/ports/misc/dialog/pkg/DESCR
Dialog is typically invoked from a shell script to provide a set of
curses widgets, e.g. yes/no, checklists, input boxes, menus, progress
boxes, text boxes, etc.
$ doas pkg_add dialog

There are also more complicated package database searching tools such as pkglocatedb that may or may not require having the ports tree installed.

  • pkg_info -Q dia does the same thing with the packages. – Rufo El Magufo Dec 18 '17 at 21:45
  • except pkg_info -d -Q dia shows all sorts of hits and it would be easy to miss "dialog" in all that – thrig Dec 19 '17 at 16:43
