775- added pico->vi softlink to ramdisk
776- in the ramdisk's /etc/bashrc, added /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin to the PATH= command
777- call insert-all-modules as background task; pause 3 seconds after calling it, before proceeding <--- /sbin/init
778- call to devfs has been moved to before call to post-init
779- added 'md5sum -> busybox' softlink
780- Mindi now uses busybox's printf, md5sum, mount, umount, vi ...NB: I said, 'vi' :-) Now you have an editor again! :-)
781- added lilo.real to deplist.txt, to allow for Debian's evil new distro
782- added lzop to deplist.txt
783- no longer including lzop in Mindi's tarball / RPM
784- improved Mindi's error-reporting a little bit
785- changed deplist.txt's /etc/* to just *
786- restructured the calls in /sbin/post-init that reinitialize the LVM and RAID modules
787- if mkfs.ext2 is not in PATH then abort
788- Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time (Jean-David Marrow)
789- Red Hat 7.2 uses a weird /etc/; I've worked around it...
790- tested with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2
792v0.44 (2001-10-28)
793- at boot-time, activate LV's if they exist
794- restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
795- re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
796- analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted the module anyway
798v0.43 (2001-10-21)
799- made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
800- if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred while I was trying to make an ISO image'
801- when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
802- make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
803- fixed a silly bug that stopped Mindi from handling its own modules properly; only affects newbie users with broken kernels (i.e. the very people that Mindi's failsafe kernel was meant to help!)
804- added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
805- added Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch; if user uses the switch (i.e. '--cd-recovery yes') then the CD will boot to a screen that pauses until the user types RESTORE; then, it will enter Nuke Mode
806- added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
807- failsafe kernel is now 2.4.12 with XFS, JFS and lots of SCSI modules; the addition of XFS and extensive SCSI support will increase the size of Mindi's RPM / tarball significantly but I think it's worth it
808- at boot-time, find out whether there are any RAID partitions; and if there are, whether they are 'started' yet; if not, run raidstart to start them at boot-time, before user can try to mount anything
809- Mindi's failsafe kernel & modules are handled more elegantly now; if you have raid1.o, scsi.o, etc. loaded at backup-time then Mindi finds its corresponding modules in its tarball of failsafe modules and stores them so that at boot-time you can do SCSI, RAID, etc.
810- removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
812v0.42 (2001-10-10)
813- make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
814- added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
815- changed the slice size from 20KB to 64KB; speeds up Mindi by 25 percent and doesn't have any negative side-effects (...that I can see)
816- when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
817- when asking user to send me a copy of their log file, point out that it may contain info which they do not want me to see but that they are SOL unless I can actually see their log file
818- fixed a silly bug that would crop up when a Linux-Mandrake 8.1 user would use a devfs-enabled kernel and RAID partitions at the same time
819- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
820- data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
821- if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
822- fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
823- enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
824- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
825- tested successfully with the following distros - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel
826- better at guessing the size of swap partition
827- drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants to use the minix filesystem
828- don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
829- if the user has two glibc libraries - one in /lib and one in /lib/i686 - then Mindi will re-jig the softlinks so that only the version in /lib is backed up, to save space on the data disks
830- major rewrite of the code that copies the tools and libraries from the data disks; prettier, faster and more stable (and did I mention how kind it is to your hard-working hands?)
831- better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
832- new boot-time script, 'bug-me', copies user's logs to a floppy and tells him/her to e-mail them to me if mondo-restore aborts
833- ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
834- no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
835- removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
836- LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
837- included a tarball of 'sane' /dev/loop* nodes which will be extracted and added to the boot disk; this helps maintain Mindi's backward- compatibility with non-devfs kernels and distros
838- when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
839- no longer copies all loaded modules to the 2.88 MB El Torito bootable floppy image; instead, it copies FLOPPY_MODS to the 1.72 MB image, CDROM_MODS to the 2.88 MB image, and _all_ modules that were loaded at backup-time to the data disks - supports tape streamers, in conjunction with Mondo
840- uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
841- if Mondo is backing up to tape streamer then write the tape's size to /tmp/TAPESIZE and the drive's device to /tmp/TAPEDEV-LIVES-HERE on the ramdisk
842- floppy disk modules (ide-floppy.o and floppy.o) now are copied to the ramdisk, whether the user's kernel or the failsafe kernel is being used
844v0.41 (2001-09-28)
845- excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
846- updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
847- added umount to deplist again
848- improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM drive and floppy disk drives)
849- don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
850- restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from deplist but also from busybox)
851- fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
852- experimental LVM support
853- added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
854- able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
855- added the LVM executables (listed in the lvm-0.xx-i386.rpm) to deplist.txt; they won't be added unless you have them and you won't
856 have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
857- added date and sync to deplist again
858- when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
859- amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between cols checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
860- incorporated busybox 0.60-1; now, Mindi is faster at run-time and smaller at boot-time; you can fit a typical system onto 3 floppies; also, a kernel up to 1MB in size (approx.) can now be accommodated
861- supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
862- Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
863- thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
864- boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
865- exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
866- exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
867- removed A LOT of files from deplist.txt's dependency list; they are listed in deplist.removed, in case you want to put them back :-)
868- excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]
869- rewrote AddFileToDir() to make it more efficient (but slower...)
870- strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip comments from /etc/termcap
872v0.40 (2001-09-16)
873- if you use a softlink to your CD dev, e.g. /dev/cdrecorder->scd0, then Mindi should handle it properly now (i.e. not bomb out)
874- if you have a large kernel & lots of modules loaded, Mindi will only copy as many modules to the ramdisk as will _fit_ on a ramdisk that will have to go alongside your kernel on a 2.88MB floppy disk
875- if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
876- turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
877- changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
878- Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
879- gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
880- working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
881- dropped the '-c' option from LILO call - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
882- slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
883- excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
884- added code to copy your fstab, lilo.conf, etc. to a tarball which, in the event of an error, Mindi will ask the user to e-mail me
886v0.39 (2001-09-08)
887- plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX softlinks are still there :-)
888- if your swap partition isn't mounted, Mindi will decide that it is 125MB; it used to abort but now it just warns & makes a good guess
889- testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
890- only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
891- copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
892- better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
893- semi-forces isofs and ide-cd (not isofs.o and ide-cd.o); the former will be more compatible with stock kernels - e.g. Red Hat, Mandrake; also added vfat, fat & a few other modules to the list of 'foced'.
894- removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't like it very much)
895- removed chaff from ramdisk's /etc/login.defs, saving approx 7K
896- format the boot disks with -N 24 (was -N 64)
897- do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
898- amend format-and-kludge-vfat; now, it will not abort if it cannot find its entry in mountlist; it doesn't need to find the entry anyway, except to check that the kludge works (which it does)
899- if user chooses to use Mindi's failsafe 2.4.9 kernel, Mindi will load Mindi's versions of user's modules at boot-time
900- make label-devices-as-necessary log its efforts
901- added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
902- if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive instead of just mondo-restore
903- replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
904- improved the post-run clean-up
905- force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
906- Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
907- /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
908- disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything anyway & were probably confusing some users)
909- removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
910- included a copy of mondo-manual.html
911- only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course); otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
912- use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
913- moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz
915v0.38 (2001-08-18)
916- clarified the 'more than one kernel found' comment
917- updated the README to emphasize that the scripts are deprecated
918- when displaying mountlist on screen, make it easier to read
919- changed most 'echo's to 'LogIt()'s; log most screen output to /var/log/mindi.log
920- user can now use a stock 2.4.7 kernel (which comes with Mindi) if the user's distro's kernel isn't right for a boot disk
922v0.37 (2001-08-11) - changed the boot screen a little bit
923- changed the "cannot boot from CD-ROM" message (more informative now)
924- if an 'insmod'ed module cannot be found, warn but don't abort
925- that whole loop-mount/extract tgz to ramdisk thing --- if it fails, abort, don't try to continue; also, ask if loopfs is supported by kernel (if not, that might explain the error)
926- in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
927- run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to /tmp/mondo-restore.log
928- default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
929- if CDROM can't find itself (long story, re: El Torito) then the script will say, "Your kernel is b0rken." This will reduce the number of erroneous error reports that I receive from users
930- working on implementing Cuckoo Mode again
932v0.36 (2001-08-03)
933- testing it with LM8, RH71 and Slack8
934- explicitily exluding /mnt/floppy and /floppy from mountlist.txt
935- warn if afio not found (Mondo needs afio)
936- optional --custom <temp dir> <out dir> switch added, to let the user specify where the temp dirs and created images will be stored
937- changed /sbin/init to install modules _before_ trying to mount CD-ROM (David Granz)
938- create a gawk->awk shortcut at restore-time if necessary
939- specifically exclude /dev/fd0h1440 and /dev/fd0H1440 from mountlist
940- removed silly "was CD inserted?" message
942v0.35 (2001-07-31)
943- if LILO fails, it writes its errors to the screen
944- use user's boot.b and LILO instead of Mindi's
945- tarball/RPM no longer includes boot.b or lilo
946- mke2fs' output will be echoed to screen, if an error occurs
947- doubled the -N inode allocations and removed some of the -i inode fiddles, just in case they are making Red Hat 7.1 choke
949v0.34 (2001-07-25)
950- includes patch to rid Mindi of its dependence on /dev/loop devices
951 (Bill Davidsen)
952- includes patch from 0ystein Skalsem, to fix a disk-formatting problem
953- warns if kernel is 2.4.0-2.4.5; encourages user to upgrade
955v0.33 (2001-07-20)
956- excludes all devices containing ':/' (i.e. NFS mountlists)
957- the FORMAT/SYS replacement, "format-and-kludge-vfat" now writes its logfile to /tmp/format-and-kludge-vfat.log
958- /etc/fstab now mounts floppies for read/write access by default
959- format-and-kludge-vfat should only write to log once now
960- added vi, top to deplist.txt
961- updated the rootfs.tgz's README
962- mountlist is written to screen as well as mountlist.txt
963- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
964- changed 'mkfs' lines, to format the loop-mounted files instead of the device nodes which makes Mindi work better with kernels 2.4.6+
965- Mindi can now handle kernels of up to 930K in size
966- sped up the process of spreading data files across data disks by approx 20 percent
968v0.32 (2001-07-18)
969- software RAID is now supported
970- added the 'raidtools' binaries to deplist.txt
971- add /etc/fstab and /etc/raidtab to deplist.txt
972- added /dev/md* to the ramdisk's /dev directory
973- modified MakeMountlist() to calculate correctly the sizes of RAID partitions, if they are present in /etc/fstab
974- moved the 'LOOPDEVICE=...' code into the regular main() section
975- install-additional-tools makes a softlink '/etc/raidtab' that points to /mnt/groovy-stuff/etc/raidtab; also, '/etc/fstab.orig' that points to /mnt/groovy-stuff/etc/fstab
976- added line to 'install-additional-tools' that will delete the dummy modprobe before installing data from datadisk(s)
977- mkdir -p $outdir at the beginning, just in case...
979v0.31 (2001-07-16) - included DoJ's patch to make Mindi play more nicely with devfs
980- slightly better and README
982v0.30 (2001-07-15)
983- added klogd and syslogd to deplist.txt
984- can now cope with Red Hat's "LABEL=" entries in /etc/fstab
985- should ignore NFS-mounted partitions now
987v0.29 (2001-07-14)
988- stopped the 'modprobe' errors that used to occur at the beginning; they didn't mean anything but they did worry some novice users
989- removed losetup from rootfs.tgz (wasn't doing anything useful)
990- removed the 'txt-or-gui' stuff from Mindi (never used it anyway)
991- added clear to deplist.txt
992- moved rootfs.tgz's "mondo/" scripts to Mondo's "restore-scripts.tgz" tarball; tarball will be untarred and contents added to the data disks at run-time, if Mindi finds the tarball
993- if user lacks fd0u1722 but has fd0h1722 then use the latter
994- boot-up msg is more informative
995- fixed obscure bug in find-and-mount-cdrom
996- better at coping with hda1/2/3/4 (normal people use hda1/5/6/7 but if you really want to exhaust your primaries, well hey, your life)
997- the 'outstring sucks!' message is now more informative
999v0.28 (2001-07-07)
1000- if AddFileToDir() is called with a file that does not exist, Mindi warns but does not abort
1001- should work with gzipped modules (which end in '.o.gz') and NVidia modules (which don't end in anything)
1002- should work with Red Hat's now
1003- misc. cosmetic changes to Mondo boot-time and restore-phase scripts, to make the visual output cleaner & more legible
1004- insist-on-cd retracts the CD tray after asking for next CD, in case the user did not close the drive before pressing <enter>
1005- if unable to create 1.72MB boot disk then warn but do not abort
1006- put creation date on the boot-up screen
1007- create data disks with tarballs up to 1700KB in size; tries harder to fill each data disk to the brim
1008- changed the call to make ext3 partitions; now, it uses a call to mkfs -t ext3 -j -Jsize=10 -q <device> (as requested by ext3 manual)
1009- tested w/ext3; works fine
1010- install-additional-tools doesn't call sync until after all softlinks have been finalized; that's to make sure we call the _right_ sync
1011- ramdisk is now (size of all files in data disks PLUS 8192) KB
1012- RPM and SRPM published
1013- mount CDROM at start of untar-me, just in case it wasn't mounted
1014- when restoring selectively, log the archives that have matches & the number of matches (inc. if zero)
1016v0.26 (2001-07-05)
1017- has been tested with XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, ext2 and vfat
1018- compatible (but not tested) with ext3
1019- better at finding your kernel, even if you have several kernels of the same version (now checks the build date, too)
1020- better file-spreading algorithm; a little faster; much more reliable
1021- includes a copy of LILO, to make the boot disks properly
1022- tells you how big the tarballs are, when it assembles them
1023- compare-me uses 'insist-on-cd' instead of internal subroutine
1024- it looks as if Mindi can actually cope with 920K kernels now :)
1025- fixed some silly multi-CD bugs that would stop big files from being restored if they were spread across CD's
1027v0.25 (2001-07-04)
1028- uses its own copy of lilo
1029- removed all "~" (backup copies) from rootfs.tgz
1030- updated the rootfs's README - stablilo-me, not hack-me
1031- improved the formatting of the lilo.conf as it is created
1032- replace all libc5 tools with libc6 (user's) tools at restore-time
1033- added diff to deplist.txt
1034- copy io.sys and msdos.sys (if found) to data disk(s) at run-time; softlinks them to /*.sys at boot-time
1035- fixed some vfat formatting-related issues w/Embleer (always tricky); the kludge's error-handling is better and its exit is more graceful
1036- say 'type nuke to restore automatically' in msg if Mondo called me
1037- backup all modules, not just the ones present/loaded at run-time; the loaded modules go on boot disk but ALL go on data disk
1038- reduced the max data per disk from 1700 to 1680, to suit ext2's needs
1039- DidMondoCallMe() replaces 'ps ax | grep | blah blah'
1040- includes user's /etc/termcap and /usr/bin/pico on disk(s)
1041- cosmetic changes to restore-time scripts (spaces, newlines, etc.)
1042- pipe kernel's msgs to /var/log/messages
1043- make sure /etc/lilo.conf is 600 (RW by root only)
1045v0.24 (2001-07-03)
1046- can accommodate a kernel >900KB in size
1047- generates lilo.conf on-the-fly; no default/template file anymore
1048- copies io.sys and msdos.sys to the CD (if you have them)
1049- add the embleer tarballs to mindi-0.xx.tgz, so that users can format and make bootable msdos/Win9x partitions
1050- added printf and hdparm to deplist.txt
1051- incorporated Bruno Cornec's Mondo 0.991 scripts in Mindi
1052- separated README into README, INSTALL and TODO
1053- fixed silly {ramdisk}/sbin/InsistOnCD bug
1054- took out mke2fs and libext from rootfs.tgz
1055- rootfs.tgz's "/etc/bashrc" now includes /usr/share/mindi
1056- compare-mode uses IDE optimization to speed things up
1057- don't quibble over resizing partitions if <2MB difference
1058- fixed silly InsistOnCD bug
1060v0.23 (2001-07-02)
1061- don't copy *.mdsg to boot floppy image
1062- fixed erroneous 'cannot make ISO image' error message
1063- can accommodate a kernel as large as 890K
1064- now uses lilo, not syslinux (lilo works better w/2.88MB boot images)
1065- creates & formats disk images on the fly (no more .img.gz templates)
1066- boot disks are formatted ext2, like the data disks
1067- creates 1.72MB and El Torito 2.88MB boot floppies/images
1068- if called by Mondo, doesn't list images or offer to copy to FDD/CDRw
1069- includes the distro's name and kernel version in LILO's message
1071v0.22 (2001-07-01)
1072- don't add a ramdisk; use rootfs & that's it
1073- dependency-calculator runs approx. twice as fast as in v0.20
1074- tested with Linux Mandrake 8.0; works well, if you recompile kernel to include floppy disk support (which LM8's kernel does not)
1075- supports bigger kernels now, up to 900K in size
1076- deplist.txt may now include directories, not just files
1077- ignores kernel filenames that are hyperlinks
1078- uses awk instead of gawk; drop the awk/gawk-finding thing
1079- uses gzip, not bzip2; dropped bzip2, mv, ls to make rootfs smaller
