1033v0.43 (2001-10-21)
1034- made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
1035- if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred while I was trying to make an ISO image'
1036- when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
1037- make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
1038- 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!)
1039- added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
1040- 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
1041- added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
1042- 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
1043- 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
1044- 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.
1045- removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
1046
1047v0.42 (2001-10-10)
1048- make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
1049- added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
1050- 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)
1051- when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
1052- 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
1053- 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
1054- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
1055- data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
1056- if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
1057- fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
1058- enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
1059- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
1060- 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
1061- better at guessing the size of swap partition
1062- drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants to use the minix filesystem
1063- don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
1064- 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
1065- 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?)
1066- better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
1067- 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
1068- ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
1069- no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
1070- removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
1071- LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
1072- 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
1073- when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
1074- 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
1075- uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
1076- 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
1077- 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
1078
1079v0.41 (2001-09-28)
1080- excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
1081- updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
1082- added umount to deplist again
1083- improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM drive and floppy disk drives)
1084- don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
1085- restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from deplist but also from busybox)
1086- fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
1087- experimental LVM support
1088- added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
1089- able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
1090- 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
1091          have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
1092- added date and sync to deplist again
1093- when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
1094- amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between cols checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
1095- 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
1096- supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
1097- Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
1098- thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
1099- boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
1100- exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
1101- exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
1102- 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 :-)
1103- excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]
1104- rewrote AddFileToDir() to make it more efficient (but slower...)
1105- strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip comments from /etc/termcap
1106
1107v0.40 (2001-09-16)
1108- 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)
1109- 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
1110- if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
1111- turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
1112- changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
1113- Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
1114- gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
1115- working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
1116- dropped the '-c' option from LILO call - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
1117- slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
1118- excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
1119- 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
1120
1121v0.39 (2001-09-08)
1122- plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX softlinks are still there :-)
1123- 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
1124- testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
1125- only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
1126- copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
1127- better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
1128- 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'.
1129- removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't like it very much)
1130- removed chaff from ramdisk's /etc/login.defs, saving approx 7K
1131- format the boot disks with -N 24 (was -N 64)
1132- do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
1133- 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)
1134- 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
1135- make label-devices-as-necessary log its efforts
1136- added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
1137- if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive instead of just mondo-restore
1138- replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
1139- improved the post-run clean-up
1140- force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
1141- Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
1142- /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
1143- disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything anyway & were probably confusing some users)
1144- removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
1145- included a copy of mondo-manual.html
1146- only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course); otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
1147- use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
1148- moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz
1149
1150v0.38 (2001-08-18)
1151- clarified the 'more than one kernel found' comment
1152- updated the README to emphasize that the scripts are deprecated
1153- when displaying mountlist on screen, make it easier to read
1154- changed most 'echo's to 'LogIt()'s; log most screen output to /var/log/mindi.log
1155- 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
1156
1157v0.37 (2001-08-11) - changed the boot screen a little bit
1158- changed the "cannot boot from CD-ROM" message (more informative now)
1159- if an 'insmod'ed module cannot be found, warn but don't abort
1160- 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)
1161- in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
1162- run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to /tmp/mondo-restore.log
1163- default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
1164- 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
1165- working on implementing Cuckoo Mode again
1166
1167v0.36 (2001-08-03)
1168- testing it with LM8, RH71 and Slack8
1169- explicitily exluding /mnt/floppy and /floppy from mountlist.txt
1170- warn if afio not found (Mondo needs afio)
1171- optional --custom <temp dir> <out dir> switch added, to let the user specify where the temp dirs and created images will be stored
1172- changed /sbin/init to install modules _before_ trying to mount CD-ROM (David Granz)
1173- create a gawk->awk shortcut at restore-time if necessary
1174- specifically exclude /dev/fd0h1440 and /dev/fd0H1440 from mountlist
1175- removed silly "was CD inserted?" message
1176
1177v0.35 (2001-07-31)
1178- if LILO fails, it writes its errors to the screen
1179- use user's boot.b and LILO instead of Mindi's
1180- tarball/RPM no longer includes boot.b or lilo
1181- mke2fs' output will be echoed to screen, if an error occurs
1182- doubled the -N inode allocations and removed some of the -i inode fiddles, just in case they are making Red Hat 7.1 choke
1183
1184v0.34 (2001-07-25)
1185- includes patch to rid Mindi of its dependence on /dev/loop devices
1186          (Bill Davidsen)
1187- includes patch from 0ystein Skalsem, to fix a disk-formatting problem
1188- warns if kernel is 2.4.0-2.4.5; encourages user to upgrade
1189
1190v0.33 (2001-07-20)
1191- excludes all devices containing ':/' (i.e. NFS mountlists)
1192- the FORMAT/SYS replacement, "format-and-kludge-vfat" now writes its logfile to /tmp/format-and-kludge-vfat.log
1193- /etc/fstab now mounts floppies for read/write access by default
1194- format-and-kludge-vfat should only write to log once now
1195- added vi, top to deplist.txt
1196- updated the rootfs.tgz's README
1197- mountlist is written to screen as well as mountlist.txt
1198- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
1199- changed 'mkfs' lines, to format the loop-mounted files instead of the device nodes which makes Mindi work better with kernels 2.4.6+
1200- Mindi can now handle kernels of up to 930K in size
1201- sped up the process of spreading data files across data disks by approx 20 percent
1202
1203v0.32 (2001-07-18)
1204- software RAID is now supported
1205- added the 'raidtools' binaries to deplist.txt
1206- add /etc/fstab and /etc/raidtab to deplist.txt
1207- added /dev/md* to the ramdisk's /dev directory
1208- modified MakeMountlist() to calculate correctly the sizes of RAID partitions, if they are present in /etc/fstab
1209- moved the 'LOOPDEVICE=...' code into the regular main() section
1210- 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
1211- added line to 'install-additional-tools' that will delete the dummy modprobe before installing data from datadisk(s)
1212- mkdir -p $outdir at the beginning, just in case...
1213
1214v0.31 (2001-07-16) - included DoJ's patch to make Mindi play more nicely with devfs
1215- slightly better install.sh and README
1216
1217v0.30 (2001-07-15)
1218- added klogd and syslogd to deplist.txt
1219- can now cope with Red Hat's "LABEL=" entries in /etc/fstab
1220- should ignore NFS-mounted partitions now
1221
1222v0.29 (2001-07-14)
1223- stopped the 'modprobe' errors that used to occur at the beginning; they didn't mean anything but they did worry some novice users
1224- removed losetup from rootfs.tgz (wasn't doing anything useful)
1225- removed the 'txt-or-gui' stuff from Mindi (never used it anyway)
1226- added clear to deplist.txt
1227- 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
1228- if user lacks fd0u1722 but has fd0h1722 then use the latter
1229- boot-up msg is more informative
1230- fixed obscure bug in find-and-mount-cdrom
1231- 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)
1232- the 'outstring sucks!' message is now more informative
1233
1234v0.28 (2001-07-07)
1235- if AddFileToDir() is called with a file that does not exist, Mindi warns but does not abort
1236- should work with gzipped modules (which end in '.o.gz') and NVidia modules (which don't end in anything)
1237- should work with Red Hat's issue.net now
1238- misc. cosmetic changes to Mondo boot-time and restore-phase scripts, to make the visual output cleaner & more legible
1239- insist-on-cd retracts the CD tray after asking for next CD, in case the user did not close the drive before pressing <enter>
1240- if unable to create 1.72MB boot disk then warn but do not abort
1241- put creation date on the boot-up screen
1242- create data disks with tarballs up to 1700KB in size; tries harder to fill each data disk to the brim
1243- 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)
1244- tested w/ext3; works fine
1245- install-additional-tools doesn't call sync until after all softlinks have been finalized; that's to make sure we call the _right_ sync
1246- ramdisk is now (size of all files in data disks PLUS 8192) KB
1247- RPM and SRPM published
1248- mount CDROM at start of untar-me, just in case it wasn't mounted
1249- when restoring selectively, log the archives that have matches & the number of matches (inc. if zero)
1250
1251v0.26 (2001-07-05)
1252- has been tested with XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, ext2 and vfat
1253- compatible (but not tested) with ext3
1254- better at finding your kernel, even if you have several kernels of the same version (now checks the build date, too)
1255- better file-spreading algorithm; a little faster; much more reliable
1256- includes a copy of LILO, to make the boot disks properly
1257- tells you how big the tarballs are, when it assembles them
1258- compare-me uses 'insist-on-cd' instead of internal subroutine
1259- it looks as if Mindi can actually cope with 920K kernels now :)
1260- fixed some silly multi-CD bugs that would stop big files from being restored if they were spread across CD's
1261
1262v0.25 (2001-07-04)
1263- uses its own copy of lilo
1264- removed all "~" (backup copies) from rootfs.tgz
1265- updated the rootfs's README - stablilo-me, not hack-me
1266- improved the formatting of the lilo.conf as it is created
1267- replace all libc5 tools with libc6 (user's) tools at restore-time
1268- added diff to deplist.txt
1269- copy io.sys and msdos.sys (if found) to data disk(s) at run-time; softlinks them to /*.sys at boot-time
1270- fixed some vfat formatting-related issues w/Embleer (always tricky); the kludge's error-handling is better and its exit is more graceful
1271- say 'type nuke to restore automatically' in msg if Mondo called me
1272- 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
1273- reduced the max data per disk from 1700 to 1680, to suit ext2's needs
1274- DidMondoCallMe() replaces 'ps ax | grep | blah blah'
1275- includes user's /etc/termcap and /usr/bin/pico on disk(s)
1276- cosmetic changes to restore-time scripts (spaces, newlines, etc.)
1277- pipe kernel's msgs to /var/log/messages
1278- make sure /etc/lilo.conf is 600 (RW by root only)
1279
1280v0.24 (2001-07-03)
1281- can accommodate a kernel >900KB in size
1282- generates lilo.conf on-the-fly; no default/template file anymore
1283- copies io.sys and msdos.sys to the CD (if you have them)
1284- add the embleer tarballs to mindi-0.xx.tgz, so that users can format and make bootable msdos/Win9x partitions
1285- added printf and hdparm to deplist.txt
1286- incorporated Bruno Cornec's Mondo 0.991 scripts in Mindi
1287- separated README into README, INSTALL and TODO
1288- fixed silly {ramdisk}/sbin/InsistOnCD bug
1289- took out mke2fs and libext from rootfs.tgz
1290- rootfs.tgz's "/etc/bashrc" now includes /usr/share/mindi
1291- compare-mode uses IDE optimization to speed things up
1292- don't quibble over resizing partitions if <2MB difference
1293- fixed silly InsistOnCD bug
1294
1295v0.23 (2001-07-02)
1296- don't copy *.mdsg to boot floppy image
1297- fixed erroneous 'cannot make ISO image' error message
1298- can accommodate a kernel as large as 890K
1299- now uses lilo, not syslinux (lilo works better w/2.88MB boot images)
1300- creates & formats disk images on the fly (no more .img.gz templates)
1301- boot disks are formatted ext2, like the data disks
1302- creates 1.72MB and El Torito 2.88MB boot floppies/images
1303- if called by Mondo, doesn't list images or offer to copy to FDD/CDRw
1304- includes the distro's name and kernel version in LILO's message
1305
1306v0.22 (2001-07-01)
1307- don't add a ramdisk; use rootfs & that's it
1308- dependency-calculator runs approx. twice as fast as in v0.20
1309- tested with Linux Mandrake 8.0; works well, if you recompile kernel to include floppy disk support (which LM8's kernel does not)
1310- supports bigger kernels now, up to 900K in size
1311- deplist.txt may now include directories, not just files
1312- ignores kernel filenames that are hyperlinks
1313- uses awk instead of gawk; drop the awk/gawk-finding thing
1314- uses gzip, not bzip2; dropped bzip2, mv, ls to make rootfs smaller
1315- copies user's /dev/fd0* devices to boot disk
1316- calls Mindi's copy of syslinux, not user's copy
1317- use modules' paths, e.g. instead of just 'insmod fubar', use 'insmod /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac117/vfat/fubar.o'
1318- in boot.msg, XXXXX is part 1 of the 2nd line, YYYYY is part 2 of the 2nd line, and ZZZZZ is Mindi's version# (in the 1st line)
1319
1320v0.21 (2001-06-30)
