Hi Mojca, Hi Robert

I tried to install standalone according to your instructions,
but I failed one more time.

I did the following steps:

mkdir context && cd context
rsync -ptv rsync://contextgarden.net/standalone/setup/first-setup.sh .

Then I changed the line 4049 of bin/mtxrun to 
local platform="openbsd6.5-amd64"

but I obviously did not understand what to do next:

env PATH="$PWD/bin:$CONTEXTROOT/texmf-$platform/bin:$PATH"
MTX_PLATFORM="$platform" \
./bin/mtxrun --script ./bin/mtx-update.lua --force --update --make
--engine=luatex --platform="$platform"
--texroot="$CONTEXTROOT" $@

ends quite quickly, with this output

mtx-update      | available platforms: freebsd freebsd-amd64 linux linux-64 linux-armhf linuxmusl-64 mswin openbsd6.5 openbsd6.5-amd64 osx-64 solaris-intel solaris-sparc win64
resolvers       | tds | no 'texmf-openbsd6.5-6.4' under tree '/home/<name>/context/'

which is the same output as ./first-setup.sh before the change. (changed
my home name to <name>)

What did I do wrong?
