  • etc...

Wait the release for some time, please.

  • ISO images for test was uploaded at test directory. See FuguIta/6.3. -- kaw? 2018-04-10 (Tue) 12:28:39

inaccessible man pages in mode 2

aleksa? (2018-02-01 (Thu) 00:09:03)

Hi kaw!

I tried the latest FuguIta.img (6.2-i386-201801201) and noticed that in mode 2 the man pages are inaccessible (e. g. # man man gives man: No entry for man in the manual.).

  • Hi, Aleksa. Thank you for the report. Changes made in 6.2 may be affected ... FuguIta/6.2/BTS/2. I will investigate, please wait for a while now. -- kaw? 2018-02-02 (Fri) 19:43:14

FuguIta 6.2 for arm64

kaw? (2017-10-20 (Fri) 11:42:05)

This is the test version. Here is a README:

Note about FuguIta-6.2-arm64 (test version)

* download miniroot62-arm64-fi.fs and FuguIta-6.2-arm64-201710241.img.gz from
  FuguIta's mirror site
* write miniroot62-arm64-fi.fs to a micro SD card
* unzip and write FuguIta-6.2-arm64-201710241.img.gz to a USB stick
* Attach the SD and the USB to RPi3, then boot.
* On FuguIta-6.2-arm64, networking is pre-configured.
   IP addr.:
   SSH port: 4272

* After boot started, about 75sec it replies for PING,
  and about 110sec SSH is available.
* Console device is still serial port.
  You can login via serial and network.
  (username = fuguita, password = fugu.ita)

System administration:
* Almost same as FuguIta i386/amd64, but 'newdrive' of usbfadm utility
  will not work properly. 'target', 'saveas' and 'sync' are OK.
* sd0d:/noasks is the file which holds FuguIta's auto-boot configurations.
* sd0d:/livecd-config/6.2/arm64/fuguita.orig holds the factory defaults.
  You can recover by overwriting fuguita.orig to fuguita directory.

Have fun!

Hi Kawa.
I tried 6.2 last night .fs and it was SLOW. Took over 2 hours to install. ran very slow after install and for head yery slow. I don't think their Intel Skylake stuff is working right.
It was disaster.
Waiting for Fugulta 6.2

Think their install6.2.fs image is bad

  • Charlie, I have just made beta version of FuguIta 6.2 . Try it. -- kaw? 2017-10-14 (Sat) 10:42:00
  • downloading. Will write tomorrow Kaw. need test time dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda being done. Plan on stalling this to sda -- ce? 2017-10-14 (Sat) 12:06:26
  • Kaw. I had to work today. But I did get it installed to USbdisk. it is slow. I need to make xorg.conf and disable trackpad a it's out of control, at least tweak the trackpak. And do some research on what might be needed in xorg.conf with reguards to skylake intell. -- ce? 2017-10-15 (Sun) 12:52:57
  • from a conole standpoint FuguIta 6.2 is all working fine. I have made encypted install, used ssh to access my severs, used usbfadm to sync everything worked very good. -- ce? 2017-10-15 (Sun) 12:55:06
  • Have downloaded i386 FuguIta. Seeking relief from Skylake and i2c code. Will test tonight. -- [[Charlie Ebert ]] 2017-10-16 (Mon) 04:16:07
  • Today I did a brief test of FuguIta-6.2-i386-201710131.iso.gz I have made a video of my failure to boot this image from a dvd. -- ce? 2017-10-16 (Mon) 11:31:39
  • -- ce? 2017-10-16 (Mon) 11:32:26
  • Charlie, very thanks for the report. I watched the video. It seems a problem of video chip and/or its kernel driver. 1) When booting disabling video driver by UKC, does the machine still fail to boot? 2) What about other machine by booting the DVD? -- kaw? 2017-10-16 (Mon) 13:35:02
  • Kaw. I drive a Semi Truck for a living and currently only have this one Dell 4G Ram laptop with me. but I do own a dozen other laptos at my home in Oklahoma. I typiclly use FuguIta I386 on my Dell mini 10 with 1G of RAM. We will have to wait until I get home to try other laptops. What do I do to disable UKC for my test on this laptop? -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 01:15:52
  • okay -c I will play with this kaw -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 01:37:04
  • boot /bsd -c but, I haven't run fw_update yet and have no drivers downloaded to disable yet? so, what was kaw wanting me to do???????? I did a ? and got a list of commands in UKC But, I didn't know what to do from there. Downloading Openbsd i386 install.iso and going to try that and see what happens. -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 01:49:20
  • -- [[ce ]] 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:11:41
  • how do I use UKC to disable video driver on FuguIta i386????? need example.. meanwhile,, i386openbsd.iso boots just fine to install ,,, hummmmmm -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:13:27
  • kaw put no fw_update blobs on dvd??? did he???? -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:14:16
  • booted FuguIta i386 in qemu under Linux. came up fine. /etc/firmware is full of blobs... trying to man the video driver first -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:29:07
  • After booting i386 FuguIta into qemu in Linux, I did man pages on all drives found in /etc/firmware.... -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:42:43
  • two of the drivers were for audio cards I'm assuming you use. The rest were all for ethernet or wifi cards which I"m also assuming you use. But, I could not identify any video card drivers using man on any driver found there. -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:43:36
  • I am left to assume you want me to disable some 'other' video driver found in the Openbsd kernel using UKC,,, but,, I just don't have a clue what that would be, OR how you would do that? You will have to give me instructions on this Kaw. -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:45:13
  • -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 02:48:15
  • I have reasoned out what I need to do now. Bring up FuguIta i386 in qemu again. Install NEWDRIVE to USBDISK in QEMU. Then boot up USBDISK in QEMU and delete all drivers in /etc/firmware. Next, rebood Fugulta i386 USBDISK on laptop and fw_update from ethernet port connection This should do the trick... -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 08:58:38
  • Charlie, your DELL laptop seems to be driven by 'inteldrm'. How is the following commands?
    boot> -c
    UKC> disable inteldrm
    UKC> verbose
    UKC> quit
    'verbose' shows result of detections for all drivers.
    BTW, I use DELL latitude D520 for development of FuguIta. Of course, it has no problem to boot both i386 and amd64. -- kaw? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 11:07:29
  • I've been working with FuguIta all evening here. Got the i386 to come up thanks to your help. I can not startx in i386 however, must write a xorg.conf file I suppose. And I've installed FuguIta AMD64 to a 2tb hard external drive and updated the drivers on it. -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 14:40:56
  • I have also made another video and posted on my bitchute place. -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 14:42:01
  • -- ce? 2017-10-17 (Tue) 14:42:19
  • Charlie, thank you for the video report. I found I missed to add 'machdep.allowaperture=2' in /etc/sysctl.conf . This is needed for some video cards including QEMU. Now rebuilding new version. Then at this version, you may not have to disable inteldrm at UKC hopefully. -- kaw? 2017-10-18 (Wed) 10:45:05
  • Thank you -- ce? 2017-10-19 (Thu) 15:15:40
  • After switching out laptop's OPENBSD and Fuguita are working just fine. The other mid range DELL used earlier had mother board damage and it was discovered . -- Charlie Ebert? 2017-11-02 (Thu) 08:41:29

Installed application man page

aleksa? (2017-07-15 (Sat) 05:16:53)

Hi jaw!
After booting in mode 0, installing an application, syncing and rebooting into mode 3 I cannot access the man page for the application.

# man wget
results in
man: /ram/usr/local/man//usr/local/man/man1/wget.1: ERROR: No such file or directory

  • Run makewhatis manually. or wait until next /etc/weekly will be executed. -- kaw? 2017-07-15 (Sat) 10:30:15
  • Running makewhatis worked. Thank you for help. -- aleksa? 2017-07-16 (Sun) 03:32:42
  • I have a plan to solve this problem at FuguIta 6.2 . -- kaw? 2017-10-16 (Mon) 13:40:41
