- the first test release
- FuguIta 7.1 changes from TMPFS to MFS as a memory-based file system.
This will result in the following changes
- The automatic specification of file capacity that existed in TMPFS does not exist in MFS. You will have to specify it explicitly.
- The maximum amount of files that can be held in memory will be a little over 1GB on the i386 platform and a little over 30GB on amd64. This is a limit of MFS itself, and the value is independent of the page-out to the swap partition.
- patch-001 of OpenBSD 7.1 was applied.
If you want to try LiveUSB for i386/amd64, generate it on LiveDVD using usbfadm newdrive.
Fuguita 7.1 uses MFS (Memory File System) instead of TMPFS (Temporary File System) as the file system in memory.
The changes are as follows
- In TMPFS, the file system capacity was automatically set when 0 was specified as the file system capacity at boot time, but MFS has no such function, so the file system capacity must be specified explicitly.
In addition, a unit symbol can be added after the numerical value to specify the file system capacity. The symbol K stands for kilobyte, M for megabyte, and G for gigabyte. If there is only a number without a suffix, it is assumed to be a megabyte.
You can also specify the value as a percentage of the RAM capacity by appending %, or as a percentage of the total RAM and swap file capacity by appending %% .
- In MFS, there is an upper limit to the amount of space that can be allocated for each architecture. The upper limit is approximately 1 gigabyte for i386, 30 gigabytes for amd64, and 15 gigabytes for arm64.
If the explicit capacity specification in the previous section exceeds these limits, the specified value will be suppressed to these limits.
- The use of the build tool has been greatly improved. If you are building with the standard configuration of FuguIta, you can run make several times to generate an ISO image.
- Sometimes reboot and halt would stop in the middle and not complete. By changing their location from mfs to rd (kernel built-in root file system), they now work reliably.
- Applied Patch-009 of OpenBSD 7.1
- The behavior when no default gateway was specified with the gennetconfs command was incorrect, so this has been fixed.
- Fixed the problem that newfs takes a long time with the newdrive and expand subcommands of the usbfadm command. Changed command line options of newfs according to target partition size.
