TinyBSD – a set of tools and shell scripts, part of the FreeBSD base system (/usr/src/tools/tools), designed to make the development of embedded systems based on FreeBSD as easy as possible. The TinyBSD script can be used on FreeBSD 5.x, 6.x and 7.x and 8-CURRENT to created a mini FreeBSD version.

The project is financed by Google Summer of Code 2008. The successor of NanoBSD, largely based on its code, supported by the FreeBSD team. It is available in the FreeBSD CVS repository. It allows you to reduce the system to about 30Mb. The same as its prototype allows you to customize the system kernel and ports – not packages (pkg) as in NanoBSD. It contains six pre-defined configurations, such as Wireless Acess Point, VPN, Firewall, bridge, wrap, default, and minimal.

The latest TinyBSD 8.2 Image was built on a 8.2-STABLE system. This is a general purpose TinyBSD image file designed to be written to a 40 – 42MB CF card. It is intended to act as a Wireless or Wired router/firewall.

Developers of the TinyBSD project are Jean Milanez Melo and Patrick Tracanelli.

FreeBSD LiveCD – a set of tools designed to enable anyone to generate their personally adapted to FreeBSD Live CD. Its begin was in the October 5th of 2001, at the time where FUGSPBR (FreeBSD User Group, SP, Brazil) distributed an ISO image with a fully functional FreeBSD 4.4-STABLE LiveCD, that would allow one to access a number of partition types (since FreeBSD native to Linux and even DOS partitions), build a fully operating Firewall, allow networking flow via NAT, working as router and a number of other issues.

The main subject was to create a tool that would allow us a safe diagnostic method, under emergency environments and specially as a rescue disk where FreeBSD partitions could only be accessed (mounted) externally.

The FreeBSD Project officially distribute a “Live” disk, under most circunstances we needed some more functional tool, that could be run directly from an optic drive (CD) without any other intermediate resource.

FreeBSD LiveCD has been used under many situations, where the most usual are Rescue Disk, Desktop, FreeBSD System demonstration at some computing specific shows, Firewalls, Wireless Bridges, Wired Gateways and, the main issue is that, as you can make a fully custom version, you can use a LiveCD under any environment you wish.

The live system user name is: root (with no password).

Litrix Linux – a Gentoo based Linux distribution in live CD format that can also be installed as a desktop operating system on x86 computers. The project was created and developed by Vagner Rodrigues between 2000 and 2011.

The first trial version of Litrix wes released in 2000 with the release of BZS (Brazilian Zip Slackware) a modified version of Slackware which was running on FAT 32 partitions giving an option to Windows 9X users who were not familiar with the GNU/Linux system to have the first contacts without the need to repartition the HD.

In late 2003 due to several problems with print servers and printer filters in Slackware, Vagner began looking for a better alternative to the print filters than APSFILTER used in Slackware.

After creating packages for Slackware from Foomatic + cups to Slackware, Vagner takes a copy of the script that generates the live CD Slax and develops Litrix Linux 1.0. Later Litrix Linux creates a fork of similarities with Slax and passes its own live CD generation script and CD boot.

In 2005 Litrix 2.1 was the time to say goodbye to the Slackware base and switch using the Gentoo base, allowing you to bring new features and ability to be customized for performance.

All this in a very pleasant environment to use / work, and best of all is that the system runs entirely from the CD simply by burning the CD image (or using a bootable floppy) that you download, and setting the BIOS to give boot from the CD-ROM.

It uses the Debian package management tools to install, remove and upgrade all the packages.

The project founder is Leandro Soares dos Santos.
