FuguIta - OpenBSD-based Live System

Yoshihiro Kawamata

Release 7.0

FuguIta 7.0 was first released on 1st, Nov, 2021. This is based on OpenBSD 7.0.

  • FuguIta-7.0-*-202201101
    • In the auto-startup file "noasks", it is possible to specify the parameters required for startup to eliminate manual input. For storage devices and data storage devices, DUIDs*1 are now added as comment lines.

      The DUID is the actual value of the device that has been remastered, so it can be used by commenting it out.

      This noasks file is automatically generated when you run the newdrive subcommand of the usbfadm utility or the expand subcommand with the newfs option selected.

What is FuguIta?

FuguIta is an OpenBSD-based Live System.

  • supported platforms
    • i386 - the Intel i386 architecture and compatible processors
    • amd64 - AMD64-based systems
    • arm64 - 64-bit ARM systems (preconfigured for Raspberry Pi 3)
  • providing
    • ISO image files for LiveDVD
    • disk image files for other Live devices (USB, SD, HDD, SSD...etc)


  • Close to a normal OpenBSD installation

    FuguIta is designed to be as similar as possible to a normal OpenBSD installation, so you can log in and configure your system in the usual way, and most of the OpenBSD documentation is still available.
    You can also add software using OpenBSD's ports/packages system.

  • Updater for easy and safe updating LiveUSB
  • Flexible Operation
    • Various boot modes according to HW specifications
      For example, it can complete booting with only 70MB of memory. (i386, mode 1, no X)
  • Tracking errata

    In addition to the semi-annual releases, we also create and release support for OpenBSD errata (security fixes and feature enhancements) that occur in between.

FuguIta (fuguita.gif) stands for "Blowfish Disk" in Japanese. Fugu means blowfish, and Ita means something flat such as a plate, a disk or a board etc...
Some Japanese might associate those who cook when hearing Ita. For them, so FuguIta also means "Blowfish Cook" as double meaning.

The introduction video of FuguIta (with auto-translated subtitles) is available on YouTube.
