     909v0.55 (2002-01-28)
     910- MINDI_HOME and MONDO_HOME defined at start of each source file, making it easier to relocate Mindi and Mondo if desired
     911- tries to mount /dev/hd[a-h] at boot-time, looking for CD-ROM; was hd[a-d]
     912- re-enabled the msg asking user to upgrade LILO if v21.6

     949- copy LAST_FILELIST_NUMBER to /tmp, for compatibility with Mondo v1.3x
     950- incorporates NFS-related settings, if supplied by Mondo v1.3x
     951- replace busybox's mount with standard libc5 mount ater restoring tools from floppies: NFS mounting requires full mount
     952- always make mindi.iso
     954v0.52-1 (2002-01-06)
     955- ramdisk's size has been tweaked
     956- if script 'bootstrap' is found at boot-time then execute it
     957- use tty8 to show mondo's output log
     958- use tty7 to offer a game of Petris (if it exists on disk)
     959- be sure to use i386-only keymaps
     960- if LILO's "/tmp/dev.0" error occurs then abort & tell user to reboot
     961- /sbin and /usr/sbin added temporarily to PATH when Mindi runs
     962- if Mondo asks then force LILO to run in backward-compatible mode
     963- if Mondo's tmpdir has post-nuke.tgz in it then extract it and incorporate its files in the data disks
     964- losetup /dev/loop0 -d before calling LILO (Norm Crowfoot)
     965- if keyboard mapping dir (usu. /lib/kbd or /usr/lib/kbd) cannot be found then don't abort; simply tell the user the default keyboard mapping will be used
     966- added /dev/hd[a,b,c,d][17-24] to the rootfs tarball
     967- won't use LILO's optimizations when creating boot floppy; however, optimizations are used on CD unless --broken-bios in call to Mondo
     968- won't write data disks to start of tape; lets Mondo do that
     969- tweaked how Mindi moves all.tar.gz around, to make it more Mondo-friendly
     970- tweaked Mindi's disk-splitter
     971- user must unmount /dev/loop0 before calling Mindi: LILO insists...
     972- added NFS-related entries to deplist.txt
     973- if not called by Mondo then don't let user choose Interactive/Nuke/ whatever; just offer Expert
     975v0.51-1 (2001-12-25)
     976- removed libm.* from rootfs.tgz
     977- replaced sh with busybox's ash

     984- fix some cosmetic bugs
     986v0.50-4 (2001-12-19)
     987- log Mindi's version# in the event of a fatal error
     988- make Mindi's boot-time output more esthetically pleasing
     989- if filesystem is type 'image', according to Mondo, then in filelist its partition type will be listed as the hexadecimal string (e.g.  'b', '83', etc.) and the partition mountpoint will be 'image'
     991v0.50-2 (2001-12-15)
     992- support for newer features in Mondo v1.3x
     994v0.50-1 (2001-12-14)
     995- correctly lists RAID constituent partitions in mountlist
     996- breaks compatibility with Mondo v1.2x
     997- if user's fstab has weird line(s) then ignore; don't abort
     998- working on CDROM_MODS, trying to make it work on Stewart Charnell's hardware setup
     999- cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-init a bit
     1001v0.48-2 (2001-12-09)
     1002- when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*' (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
     1003- if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)
     1004- cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-ini; the former now controls initialization of hardware, drivers, tools, etc. and the latter runs mondo-restore if it exists
     1005- better detection of and compatibility with SCSI CD-ROM drives
     1006- chopsize is now 64KB; was 128KB
     1007- cleaned up mindi's logging
     1009v0.48-1 (2001-12-08)
     1010- better logging of find-and-mount-cdrom's progress (to /tmp/mondo-restore.log)
     1011- somehow, lilo was re-enabled in deplist.txt; DISABLED (again *g*)
     1012- added 'linear' to the list of modules Mindi always backs up
     1013- if called by Mondo then pass the name & device of the user's boot loader to the restore phase, by copying BOOTLOADER.* to the ramdisk
     1014- if loading from floppies then try to mount CD-ROM a 2nd time after extracting files from data floppies, just in case user is a CD user who couldn't get their CD-ROM drive to work initially
     1015- added fix to make sure /root/images/mindi is created (Charlie Root)
     1016- aware of 'iso' boot mode, for future expansion
     1018v0.47 (2001-12-04)
     1019- added /dev/cdrom/cdrom[1-4] to the devices automatically excluded from mountlist.txt
     1020- added '-f-' to the end of most tar commands, to see if it fixes a bug in some obscure Debian distros
     1021- added network-related dependencies to deplist.txt
     1022- if called by Mondo then don't write floppy images to disks; let Mondo do that: less irritating for user
     1023- if called by Mondo then do some clever tricks to add mondo-restore and its dependencies (mondo-restore is now a dynamic executable)
     1024- finally gotten klogd to squelch echoing of kernel msgs to console
     1026v0.46 (2001-11-29)
     1027- finally fixed that 'lib/modules/2.4.12-xfs not found' bug! :-D
     1028- cosmetic changes and minor bugfixes
     1029- excluded lilo.conf and lilo from deplist.txt; use user's copy instead
     1030- if your fstab mentions a RAID partition but your raidtab doesn't then Mindi will terminate in a sane manner with a sane error message
     1031- fixed a bug in bug-me (heh, how ironic)
     1032- include and run (sys)klogd to try to pipe kernel msgs to logfile
     1033- call hdparm to speed up access to CD-ROM drive
     1035v0.45 (2001-11-15)
     1036- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
     1037- include /etc/fstab in logfile
     1038- removed lzop.* from aux-tools; should come from user's distro anyway
     1039- tweaked data disk size and data disk formatting command
     1040- make ISO bootable image (as well as floppies) when backing up to tape
     1041- copy boot images (floppy + CD) from temp dir to /root/images/mindi after making them, just in case the user wants them later
     1042- added md5sum to deplist.txt
     1043- added pico->vi softlink to ramdisk
     1044- in the ramdisk's /etc/bashrc, added /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin to the PATH= command
     1045- call insert-all-modules as background task; pause 3 seconds after calling it, before proceeding <--- /sbin/init
     1046- call to devfs has been moved to before call to post-init
     1047- added 'md5sum -> busybox' softlink
     1048- Mindi now uses busybox's printf, md5sum, mount, umount, vi ...NB: I said, 'vi' :-) Now you have an editor again! :-)
     1049- added lilo.real to deplist.txt, to allow for Debian's evil new distro
     1050- added lzop to deplist.txt
     1051- no longer including lzop in Mindi's tarball / RPM
     1052- improved Mindi's error-reporting a little bit
     1053- changed deplist.txt's /etc/* to just *
     1054- restructured the calls in /sbin/post-init that reinitialize the LVM and RAID modules
     1055- if mkfs.ext2 is not in PATH then abort
     1056- Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time (Jean-David Marrow)
     1057- Red Hat 7.2 uses a weird /etc/; I've worked around it...
     1058- tested with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2
     1060v0.44 (2001-10-28)
     1061- at boot-time, activate LV's if they exist
     1062- restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
     1063- re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
     1064- analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted the module anyway
     1066v0.43 (2001-10-21)
     1067- made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
     1068- if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred while I was trying to make an ISO image'
     1069- when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
     1070- make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
     1071- 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!)
     1072- added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
     1073- 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
     1074- added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
     1075- 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
     1076- 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
     1077- 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.
     1078- removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
     1080v0.42 (2001-10-10)
     1081- make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
     1082- added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
     1083- 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)
     1084- when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
     1085- 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
     1086- 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
     1087- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
     1088- data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
     1089- if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
     1090- fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
     1091- enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
     1092- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
     1093- 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
     1094- better at guessing the size of swap partition
     1095- drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants to use the minix filesystem
     1096- don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
     1097- 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
     1098- 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?)
     1099- better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
     1100- 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
     1101- ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
     1102- no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
     1103- removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
     1104- LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
     1105- 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
     1106- when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
     1107- 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
     1108- uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
     1109- 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
     1110- 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
     1112v0.41 (2001-09-28)
     1113- excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
     1114- updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
     1115- added umount to deplist again
     1116- improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM drive and floppy disk drives)
     1117- don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
     1118- restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from deplist but also from busybox)
     1119- fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
     1120- experimental LVM support
     1121- added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
     1122- able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
     1123- 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
     1124      have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
     1125- added date and sync to deplist again
     1126- when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
     1127- amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between cols checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
     1128- 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
     1129- supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
     1130- Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
     1131- thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
     1132- boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
     1133- exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
     1134- exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
     1135- 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 :-)
     1136- excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]
     1137- rewrote AddFileToDir() to make it more efficient (but slower...)
     1138- strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip comments from /etc/termcap
     1140v0.40 (2001-09-16)
     1141- 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)
     1142- 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
     1143- if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
     1144- turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
     1145- changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
     1146- Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
     1147- gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
     1148- working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
     1149- dropped the '-c' option from LILO call - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
     1150- slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
     1151- excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
     1152- 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
     1154v0.39 (2001-09-08)
     1155- plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX softlinks are still there :-)
     1156- 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
     1157- testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
     1158- only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
     1159- copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
     1160- better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
     1161- 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'.
     1162- removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't like it very much)
     1163- removed chaff from ramdisk's /etc/login.defs, saving approx 7K
     1164- format the boot disks with -N 24 (was -N 64)
     1165- do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
     1166- 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)
     1167- 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
     1168- make label-devices-as-necessary log its efforts
     1169- added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
     1170- if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive instead of just mondo-restore
     1171- replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
     1172- improved the post-run clean-up
     1173- force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
     1174- Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
     1175- /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
     1176- disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything anyway & were probably confusing some users)
     1177- removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
     1178- included a copy of mondo-manual.html
     1179- only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course); otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
     1180- use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
     1181- moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz
     1183v0.38 (2001-08-18)
     1184- clarified the 'more than one kernel found' comment
     1185- updated the README to emphasize that the scripts are deprecated
     1186- when displaying mountlist on screen, make it easier to read
     1187- changed most 'echo's to 'LogIt()'s; log most screen output to /var/log/mindi.log
     1188- 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
     1190v0.37 (2001-08-11) - changed the boot screen a little bit
     1191- changed the "cannot boot from CD-ROM" message (more informative now)
     1192- if an 'insmod'ed module cannot be found, warn but don't abort
     1193- 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)
     1194- in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
     1195- run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to /tmp/mondo-restore.log
     1196- default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
     1197- 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
     1198- working on implementing Cuckoo Mode again
     1200v0.36 (2001-08-03)
     1201- testing it with LM8, RH71 and Slack8
     1202- explicitily exluding /mnt/floppy and /floppy from mountlist.txt
     1203- warn if afio not found (Mondo needs afio)
     1204- optional --custom <temp dir> <out dir> switch added, to let the user specify where the temp dirs and created images will be stored
     1205- changed /sbin/init to install modules _before_ trying to mount CD-ROM (David Granz)
     1206- create a gawk->awk shortcut at restore-time if necessary
     1207- specifically exclude /dev/fd0h1440 and /dev/fd0H1440 from mountlist
     1208- removed silly "was CD inserted?" message
     1210v0.35 (2001-07-31)
     1211- if LILO fails, it writes its errors to the screen
     1212- use user's boot.b and LILO instead of Mindi's
     1213- tarball/RPM no longer includes boot.b or lilo
     1214- mke2fs' output will be echoed to screen, if an error occurs
     1215- doubled the -N inode allocations and removed some of the -i inode fiddles, just in case they are making Red Hat 7.1 choke
     1217v0.34 (2001-07-25)
     1218- includes patch to rid Mindi of its dependence on /dev/loop devices
     1219      (Bill Davidsen)
     1220- includes patch from 0ystein Skalsem, to fix a disk-formatting problem
     1221- warns if kernel is 2.4.0-2.4.5; encourages user to upgrade
     1223v0.33 (2001-07-20)
     1224- excludes all devices containing ':/' (i.e. NFS mountlists)
     1225- the FORMAT/SYS replacement, "format-and-kludge-vfat" now writes its logfile to /tmp/format-and-kludge-vfat.log
     1226- /etc/fstab now mounts floppies for read/write access by default
     1227- format-and-kludge-vfat should only write to log once now
     1228- added vi, top to deplist.txt
     1229- updated the rootfs.tgz's README
     1230- mountlist is written to screen as well as mountlist.txt
     1231- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
     1232- changed 'mkfs' lines, to format the loop-mounted files instead of the device nodes which makes Mindi work better with kernels 2.4.6+
     1233- Mindi can now handle kernels of up to 930K in size
     1234- sped up the process of spreading data files across data disks by approx 20 percent
     1236v0.32 (2001-07-18)
     1237- software RAID is now supported
     1238- added the 'raidtools' binaries to deplist.txt
     1239- add /etc/fstab and /etc/raidtab to deplist.txt
     1240- added /dev/md* to the ramdisk's /dev directory
     1241- modified MakeMountlist() to calculate correctly the sizes of RAID partitions, if they are present in /etc/fstab
     1242- moved the 'LOOPDEVICE=...' code into the regular main() section
     1243- 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
     1244- added line to 'install-additional-tools' that will delete the dummy modprobe before installing data from datadisk(s)
     1245- mkdir -p $outdir at the beginning, just in case...
     1247v0.31 (2001-07-16) - included DoJ's patch to make Mindi play more nicely with devfs
     1248- slightly better and README
     1250v0.30 (2001-07-15)
     1251- added klogd and syslogd to deplist.txt
     1252- can now cope with Red Hat's "LABEL=" entries in /etc/fstab
     1253- should ignore NFS-mounted partitions now
     1255v0.29 (2001-07-14)
     1256- stopped the 'modprobe' errors that used to occur at the beginning; they didn't mean anything but they did worry some novice users
     1257- removed losetup from rootfs.tgz (wasn't doing anything useful)
     1258- removed the 'txt-or-gui' stuff from Mindi (never used it anyway)
     1259- added clear to deplist.txt
     1260- 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
     1261- if user lacks fd0u1722 but has fd0h1722 then use the latter
     1262- boot-up msg is more informative
     1263- fixed obscure bug in find-and-mount-cdrom
     1264- 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)
     1265- the 'outstring sucks!' message is now more informative
     1267v0.28 (2001-07-07)
     1268- if AddFileToDir() is called with a file that does not exist, Mindi warns but does not abort
     1269- should work with gzipped modules (which end in '.o.gz') and NVidia modules (which don't end in anything)
     1270- should work with Red Hat's now
     1271- misc. cosmetic changes to Mondo boot-time and restore-phase scripts, to make the visual output cleaner & more legible
     1272- insist-on-cd retracts the CD tray after asking for next CD, in case the user did not close the drive before pressing <enter>
     1273- if unable to create 1.72MB boot disk then warn but do not abort
     1274- put creation date on the boot-up screen
     1275- create data disks with tarballs up to 1700KB in size; tries harder to fill each data disk to the brim
     1276- 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)
     1277- tested w/ext3; works fine
     1278- install-additional-tools doesn't call sync until after all softlinks have been finalized; that's to make sure we call the _right_ sync
     1279- ramdisk is now (size of all files in data disks PLUS 8192) KB
     1280- RPM and SRPM published
     1281- mount CDROM at start of untar-me, just in case it wasn't mounted
     1282- when restoring selectively, log the archives that have matches & the number of matches (inc. if zero)
     1284v0.26 (2001-07-05)
     1285- has been tested with XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, ext2 and vfat
     1286- compatible (but not tested) with ext3
     1287- better at finding your kernel, even if you have several kernels of the same version (now checks the build date, too)
     1288- better file-spreading algorithm; a little faster; much more reliable
     1289- includes a copy of LILO, to make the boot disks properly
     1290- tells you how big the tarballs are, when it assembles them
     1291- compare-me uses 'insist-on-cd' instead of internal subroutine
     1292- it looks as if Mindi can actually cope with 920K kernels now :)
     1293- fixed some silly multi-CD bugs that would stop big files from being restored if they were spread across CD's
     1295v0.25 (2001-07-04)
     1296- uses its own copy of lilo
     1297- removed all "~" (backup copies) from rootfs.tgz
     1298- updated the rootfs's README - stablilo-me, not hack-me
     1299- improved the formatting of the lilo.conf as it is created
     1300- replace all libc5 tools with libc6 (user's) tools at restore-time
     1301- added diff to deplist.txt
     1302- copy io.sys and msdos.sys (if found) to data disk(s) at run-time; softlinks them to /*.sys at boot-time
     1303- fixed some vfat formatting-related issues w/Embleer (always tricky); the kludge's error-handling is better and its exit is more graceful
     1304- say 'type nuke to restore automatically' in msg if Mondo called me
     1305- 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
     1306- reduced the max data per disk from 1700 to 1680, to suit ext2's needs
     1307- DidMondoCallMe() replaces 'ps ax | grep | blah blah'
     1308- includes user's /etc/termcap and /usr/bin/pico on disk(s)
     1309- cosmetic changes to restore-time scripts (spaces, newlines, etc.)
     1310- pipe kernel's msgs to /var/log/messages
     1311- make sure /etc/lilo.conf is 600 (RW by root only)
     1313v0.24 (2001-07-03)
     1314- can accommodate a kernel >900KB in size
     1315- generates lilo.conf on-the-fly; no default/template file anymore
     1316- copies io.sys and msdos.sys to the CD (if you have them)
     1317- add the embleer tarballs to mindi-0.xx.tgz, so that users can format and make bootable msdos/Win9x partitions
     1318- added printf and hdparm to deplist.txt
     1319- incorporated Bruno Cornec's Mondo 0.991 scripts in Mindi
     1320- separated README into README, INSTALL and TODO
     1321- fixed silly {ramdisk}/sbin/InsistOnCD bug
     1322- took out mke2fs and libext from rootfs.tgz
     1323- rootfs.tgz's "/etc/bashrc" now includes /usr/share/mindi
     1324- compare-mode uses IDE optimization to speed things up
     1325- don't quibble over resizing partitions if <2MB difference
     1326- fixed silly InsistOnCD bug
     1328v0.23 (2001-07-02)
     1329- don't copy *.mdsg to boot floppy image
     1330- fixed erroneous 'cannot make ISO image' error message
     1331- can accommodate a kernel as large as 890K
     1332- now uses lilo, not syslinux (lilo works better w/2.88MB boot images)
     1333- creates & formats disk images on the fly (no more .img.gz templates)
     1334- boot disks are formatted ext2, like the data disks
     1335- creates 1.72MB and El Torito 2.88MB boot floppies/images
     1336- if called by Mondo, doesn't list images or offer to copy to FDD/CDRw
     1337- includes the distro's name and kernel version in LILO's message
     1339v0.22 (2001-07-01)
     1340- don't add a ramdisk; use rootfs & that's it
     1341- dependency-calculator runs approx. twice as fast as in v0.20
     1342- tested with Linux Mandrake 8.0; works well, if you recompile kernel to include floppy disk support (which LM8's kernel does not)
     1343- supports bigger kernels now, up to 900K in size
     1344- deplist.txt may now include directories, not just files
     1345- ignores kernel filenames that are hyperlinks
     1346- uses awk instead of gawk; drop the awk/gawk-finding thing
     1347- uses gzip, not bzip2; dropped bzip2, mv, ls to make rootfs smaller
     1348- copies user's /dev/fd0* devices to boot disk
     1349- calls Mindi's copy of syslinux, not user's copy
     1350- use modules' paths, e.g. instead of just 'insmod fubar', use 'insmod /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac117/vfat/fubar.o'
     1351- 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)
     1353v0.21 (2001-06-30)
     1354- df, du, find, lsmod, rmmod have been removed from rootfs.tgz
     1355- at boot-time, inserts kernel modules w/user's original parameters
     1356- deletes the slices after recombining them & restoring the files
     1357- includes the MINDI_VER version number in boot.msg
     1358- if boot disk is too small, lists the files & which one is too big
     1359- syslinux now waits 10 seconds before booting floppy
     1360- 'insert-all-my-modules' is copied to rootfs, not to a data disk

     983- --use-lzo now applies lzo to big files as well as afio archives
     984- changed all 'long long's to 'off_t's
     985- no longer aborts if /etc/lilo.conf does not exist
     986- moved FAQ's to FAQ file
     987- archive bigfiles one slice at a time; much less wasteful of space
     988- abort if user tries to backup a mounted partition as an _image_

     998v1.33-4 (2001-12-13)
     999- updated FAQ
     1000- experimental GRUB support
     1001- when calculating checksums, tell user percent done and time remaining

     1011v1.33-1 (2001-12-12)
     1012- if user changes a partition's device, change it in raidtab too
     1013- don't extrapolate from /etc/raidtab to /tmp/mountlist; editor does it already
     1014- don't backup /tmp (somewhere in the v1.3x series, I stopped excluding /tmp)
     1015- cosmetic fixes to mondo-prep.c and mondo-newt.c
     1016- put quotes around chmod's parameter
     1017- subtract 5 percent from reported maximum storage capacity of drives, when checking that the parttions will fit; some drives lie about their max cap
     1018- stablilo-me no longer tries to mark partitions as bootable
     1019- better exclusion of /var/log/pacct
     1020- tape users can now use --verify to verify archives w/o rebooting

     1027- don't add partitions to mountlist when extrapolating from mountlist unless the partitions are not already present in mountlist
     1028- don't format partitions if partitioning failed
     1029- when user selects RAID level, establish whether said level is available
     1031v1.32 (2001-12-09)
     1032- if user creates ISO images, the default dest dir is /root/images/mondo now
     1033- log_it() makes sure it only writes one \n on the end of each logged line
     1034- detects if user is using GRUB/LILO/other; abort if neither LILO nor GRUB
     1035- passes the boot loader's name and device to Mindi, to be available at boot-time
     1036- if user successfully restores using Nuke or Interactive w/o error then Mondo generates a random message, basically saying, "Cool."
     1037- enlarged afio's "-M" parameter from 12M to 16M
     1038- if stablilo-me fails then restore the original lilo.conf and fstab before offering user the opportunity to edit them (Dean Carpenter)
     1039- added ISO Mode, to let user restore from ISO images in directory
     1040- cosmetic fix to compare/restore phase windows
     1041- if backing up to ISO images then offer to write boot floppies too
     1042- changed some references to /tmp/raidtab, to /etc/raidtab
     1043- cleaned up compare + restore logging
     1044- scratchdir is now [path]/mondo.scratch.$$; was just [path]/mondo.scratch
     1046v1.31 (2001-12-04)
     1047- turned on '-Wall' to find cruft; found lots of it; cleaned it up
     1048- exclude each device's lost+found directory
     1049- mountlist editor now permits advanced editing of RAID devices
     1050- fixed a silly bug that was causing freeze-up on <1 percent of systems; if biggielist was empty then sometimes mondo-archive would freeze when backing up big files (cos there weren't any *g*)
     1051- partition and set type in 2-stage process (was 1-stage)
     1052- cleaned up Compare Mode's logging a bit, to make it more legible
     1053- don't report changed archives as 'errors' but as 'differences'
     1054- exclude ext3's .journal files from backup (yes, this time I really do)
     1055- '--my-kernel SUCKS' has been replaced with '--my-kernel FAILSAFE'
     1056- softlink mondo-restore to /usr/bin/ before calling Mindi, so that Mindi can pick up mondo-restore and its depdendencies easily
     1057- copy mondo-restore to Mondo's temp dir before calling Mindi
     1058- don't try to compress MP3's, MPG's, WMV's or RA's
     1059- cleaned up mondo-newt.c; alphabetized the subroutines; moved some tools from there to mondo-tools.c
     1060- mondo-tarme and mondo-restore are now compiled as dynamic executables; I have amended and mondo-1.31.spec accordingly
     1061- now make boot/data floppies at end of backup, not beginning
     1062- backup in alphabetical order now, not reverse-alpha
     1063- if Compare Mode reports changed files /var/* and /etc/mtab only then tell the user their archives are good despite the differneces
     1064- cut back on excessively verbose logging at backup-time
     1065- when vacuum-packing a partition, describe it as "(max size)", not "(0 MB)"
     1066- if swap is already mounted, don't abort: just say, 'swap already mounted'
     1067- when unmounting all devices, don't try to unmount something if it's not even mounted; if it's not mounted, say so but don't try to unmount it: you'll just end up looking very silly :)
     1069v1.30 (2001-11-28)
     1070- I have reorganized the C code, sorted the subroutines alphabetically, and re-jigged Mondo's installation routines (inc. the RPM spec file) to reflect the changes
     1071- check for mondo-restore's presence; if absent then abort & ask user to check to see if Mondo was installed properly
     1072- always exclude /var/log/pacct from backup
     1073- optimal set size is now 24MB
     1074- will abort w/error if compilation of mondo-* fails
     1075- after creating the mountlist, put a copy in Mondo's tmp directory
     1076- each ext3 filesystem has a .journal file in its base directory; Mondo will now exclude each of these journal files automatically
     1077- use the archived copy of LILO, not the copy from the restore-time ramdisk, to configure the MBR
     1078- size_of_file() now returns long long, not long
     1079- find mondo-archive and set MONDO_PATH accordingly
     1080- scratchdir is /home/mondo.scratch by default
     1081- at backup-time, run mondo-restore in test mode to make sure that the executable is sane & will run OK at restore-time
     1083v1.19 (2001-11-14)
     1084- tested on Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2; backup,wipe,restore went OK
     1085- fixed a bug in is_this_device_mounted()
     1086- at restore-time, always check for presence of decompressor; abort if notfound
     1087- run 'chmod -r 1777 /mnt/RESTORING/tmp' after restoring
     1088- fixed bugs in Compare Mode:- - missing else{} - erroneous 'cannot add archive' error; res+=retval should have read retval+=res (Tony Kim)
     1089- use 'umount /mnt/cdrom' instead of 'umount /dev/cdrom', to make it compatible with busybox's umount command
     1090- fixed bug in mondo-archive which stopped Mondo from pausing to retry if the CD/ISO fails the verification phase
     1091- modified compare_all_tarballs() in mondo-restore.c
     1092- if running interactively then offer to modify fstab and lilo.conf if user says s/he has modified the mountlist
     1093- if mondo-tarme segfaults (as it does, on a _very_ few systems) then Mondo picks up on the fact & reports it
     1094- when restoring, create /mnt/RESTORING/tmp before _and_ after restoring data, just in case it is necessary; also set permissions okay
     1095- C code is now compiled 'O0' (without optimizations)
     1096- each CD's slices were being listed to screen; now, piped to /dev/null
     1098v1.18 (2001-10-28)
     1099- changed minor error in documentation (mondo-archive's --help output)
     1100- improved Mondo's compare phase for tape users
     1102v1.17 (2001-10-20)
     1103- the deprecated scripts now work with LZO
     1104- if mondo-restore cannot mount all devices, it will _unmount_ whatever it did mount, before it returns an error
     1105- works with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
     1106- cosmetic change to output (no more 'burning first/last CD' msgs)
     1107- abort if user uses '--use-lzo' but doesn't install LZO(P) first
     1108- changed --differential's \( and \) to ( and ) <-- thanks, Michael Moellney)
     1109- added Marcus Oberhumer's LZO to Mindi and Mondo; use '--use-lzo' switch to activate this groovy new compression algorithm; it is not as efficient as bzip2 but it is can take up to 50 percent less time than bzip2 to compress data
     1110- incorporated Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch
     1111- at restore-time, set biggiefiles to +x
     1112- set optimal fileset size to 16MB (was 8MB)
     1113- don't report non-existent differences/errors between archives and filesystem
     1114- fixed bug in --differential switch (Michael Moellney)
     1115- scripts will no longer function unless gawk and printf are included in Mindi's deplist.txt; add them if you want to use the scripts
     1117v1.16 (2001-10-10)
     1118- default scratchdir is `pwd`/mondo.scratch.$$ (was mondo.scratch)
     1119- when asking user to send me a log file, warn them that the log file may contain information which they do not want me to see but point out that I cannot help much unless I have a copy of their log file
     1120- when comparing to or restoring from tape, only update the progree form if/when I've just restored files; otherwise, I would screw up the time est.s
     1121- increase afio's block count from 256 to 1024 when restoring from tape
     1122- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
     1123- when restoring or comparing, track progress by the archive# (N out of M), not by the file#; the former is more reliable and useful than the latter
     1124- has been tested successfully with the following distros - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel --- tape / CDR - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel --- tape / CDR
     1125- tape streamers are now supported; use the '--write-tapes <dev> <sizeMB>' switch, e.g. --write-tapes /dev/st0 4096
     1126- LVM support is stabilizing
     1127- when mounting/unmounting partitions to be restored, don't forget to mount/unmount the swap partitions
     1128- when zeroing a drive, use plain old C fopen/fputc/fclose, not 'dd'
     1129- after restoring data and running LILO, unmount (as usual) and then run label-partitions-as-necessary, to set the ext2fs LABELs if it is appropriate
     1130- fixed bugs in selective restoration scripts and executable
     1131- fixed silly bug in hack-lilo; bug was triggered when I moved to Mandrake 8.1; bug caused '/dev/fd0' entry in lilo.conf to become corrupted
     1132- if user tries to make a bootable rescue CD with the '--no-bkpath' switch then politely direct them to Mindi :-)
     1134v1.15 (2001-09-28)
     1135- serialized the call to mondo-filelistchop.c; helps to improve visual feedback (yeah, sounds weird but it's true)
     1136- the switches --differential and --exclude-paths should play nicely now
     1137- improved the logging a bit, esp. when ejecting or unmounting CD's
     1138- improved the visual feedback (specifically, the bar and percentage figures indicating time spent & remaining)
     1139- experimental LVM support
     1140- fixed 'cannot eject CD' bug, which was caused by busybox's sync & umount
     1141- fixed mount-me to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between columns
     1142- fixed documentation; param is --my-kernel <path>, not kernel-path <path>
     1143- fail if user runs mondo-archive _from CD_; this is for the user's protection
     1144- fixed silly bug in mount-me (a crucial line was disabled)
     1145- working on stablilo-me, hack-lilo and hack-fstab to make sure they work with the new, busybox-based Mindi v0.41
     1146- Mindi v0.41 is very different from v0.40, internally anyway; so, I had to do a lot of testing to make sure Mondo would play nicely with the new Mindi
     1148v1.14 (2001-09-18)
     1149- if verify is enabled then verify each CD/ISO after writing it
     1150- fixed a quasi-bug in mondo/mount-me; this script used 'sort +1' which is not supported by busybox; I've changed it to just plain old 'sort'
     1151- Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
     1152- fixed bug in 'biggify-me' script; now, checksums will be verified
     1153- fixed bug in checksum comparison code (mondo-restore.c)
     1154- reimplemented '--verify' switch; now, user can verify ISO's or CD's against the live filesystem, just for 'belt and braces' emotional security
     1155- improved the error-reporting at restore-time (if tarball cannot be accessed)
     1156- if user does not specify CD-R(W) drive's speed or device then Mondo will try to locate the drive and will assume 4x speed
     1157- user may now type 'edit-mountlist' after booting, if they want to edit the mountlist without risking accidentally wiping their hard disks
     1158- fixed a few silly typos in the error messages in mondo-tarme
     1159- updated the FAQ
     1160- added code to verify ISO images
     1161- used 'blank=fast' instead of '-blank fast' for backward-compatibility with older versions of cdrecord
     1162- if nonzero value returned by Mondo, then Mondo creates a mondo.err.$$.tgz tarball containing log files & stuff, which it tells the user to e-mail me
     1163- when debugging, don't pause before running mondo-tarme; just run it
     1164- automatically exclude any file including '/vmmhiber.w9x' in its pathname
     1165- added Minix support (although I doubt anyone needs it)
     1166- ported mondo-tarme to C - prettier interface at run-time (backup), giving better feedback - obviates a mysterious, intermittent bug in bash itself - shows ' percent done' when burning CD
     1167- afio now has a 12MB FIFO buffer (was 16MB)
     1168- cdrecord now has a 20MB FIFO buffer (was 24MB)
     1169- wipe [CD]/usr/share/mondo, as well as floppy images, if CD #2 or later
     1170- up to 19 CD's may be created now
     1171- fixed the 'stderr.txt not found' loop error in mondo-tarme.c
     1172- fixed the weird 'segfault on finish() after archiving' bug
     1173- modularized the and mondo-1.14-x.i386.rpm compilation sections
     1175v1.13 (2001-09-01)
     1176- fixed some compiler warnings in mondo-newt.c; rearranged some code
     1177- mondo-tarme now uses -M 16m -t 4k in its call to afio, to improve performance
     1178- fixed mondo-restore.c's mkreiserfs call; ditto, prep-me's mkreiserfs call
     1179- fixed mondo-restore.c's compare_a_biggiefile() subroutine, which would generate erroneous error messages
     1180- fixed mondo-archive.c's restore_a_biggiefile() and restore_all_biggiefiles() subroutines; I can't get them to break but others can, so I've streamlined the code to make them easier to debug and in theory more stable too
     1181- fixed 'hack-fstab' to make sure that non-LABELed partitions are correctly moved/changed, etc.
     1182- fixed the 'space in big filename' bug (I think)
     1183- make Interactive Mode sort the mountlist (by partition size) before creating the dirs and mounting the partitions to them
     1184- fixed a slew of bugs related to Red Hat's LABEL= extensions
     1185- cleaned up mondo-restore.c and mondo-newt.c; replaced lots of arbitrary limits and lengths with a small number of #define's
     1186- added some sample RAID0/1/5 raidtab (config) files to restore-scripts.tgz, which will be restored to the ramdisk's /etc dir when the user boots from the CD; this will only take up an extra 50K or so & will help any user who is moving from non-RAID to RAID
     1187- changed FIFO size to 20MB
     1188- only use the VFAT kludge on /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1; otherwise, even if the partition type is VFAT, do a regular mkfs.vfat
     1189- if mkfs.vfat doesn't exist, use mkfs.dos
     1190- only try to add 'LABEL=' to ext2 and ext3 partitions
     1191- moved a bunch of scripts from Mindi's rootfs.tgz to our restore-scripts.tgz
     1192- fixed bugs in mondo-restore.c, which would sometimes just sit there when trying to compare or restore big files that were spread across CD's
     1193- Interactive Mode goes straight to 'mondo-restore --interactive' now, i.e.  the user doesn't have to choose Interactive once at boot and once within mondo-restore
     1194- better post-run clean-up
     1195- improved mondo-restore.c's error-reporting a little bit
     1196- stablilo-me (the script) now supports Red Hat's "LABEL=" extensions to /etc/fstab, via the script, 'label-partitions-as-necessary'
     1197- added a user-friendly mountlist editor to mondo-restore.c
     1198- added lots of sanity-checking to mountlist editor
     1200v1.12 (2001-08-18)
     1201- changed cdrecord's FIFO size to 8MB
     1202- removed -pad and -sort from the call to mkisofs
     1203- amended the .spec file to be saner when building RPM's
     1204- archives are named '.afio.bz2' instead of '.tar.bz2'
     1205- mondo-archive, mondo-tarme, mondo-restore.c and the DEPRECATED scripts have been amended accordingly
     1206- should be able to create up to 20 CD-R's per backup set now
     1207- moved a line within prep-me that was in the wrong place (thanks, Fran Boon!)
     1208- runs 'df -m' and saves it to a text file 'df.txt' on the CD
     1209- added 10-second delay before mondo-restore's Nuke Mode, to let the user abort
     1210- really fixed the '/mnt/RESTORING/tmp' permissions bug (thanks, Ang Tan!)
     1211- sometimes, bash gets all screwed up & won't let the user type 'continue' when Mondo asks them to; if that happens, Mondo will detect it & use a different kind of mondo-askme; the new mondo-askme will check every 10 minutes for a blank CD; if it's there, then the burn continues
     1212- abort if isodir or scratchdir is a softlink
     1213- replaced mondo-askme with a good shell script, to work around flaws in bash and/or kernel (don't know which)
     1214- added a failsafe kernel to Mindi, which means you don't have to make sure your kernel is suitable for a boot disk; you can just use Mindi's instead
     1215- make+chop filelist _after_ calling Mindi
     1216- updated the FAQ
     1218v1.10 (2001-08-12)
     1219- changed cdrecord's FIFO size back to 4MB
     1220- added -pad -sort to the call to mkisofs
     1221- stop saying, "N files differ so far" after comparing each tarball
     1222- updated the FAQ, to remind users that they can boot from floppy images if their kernel does not have the right support of CD-ROM's, filesystems, etc.
     1223- erroneous error-reporting by /mondo/biggify-me; fixed (David Granz)
     1224- don't estimate the time remaining unless >20 sets processed already
     1225- default set size (uncompressed) is now 8MB (was 12MB); when 8MB, seems to run more smoothly & a little quicker, too, at restore-time
     1226- chmod 1777 /mnt/RESTORING/tmp after restoring/creating /tmp
     1227- dropped mondo-askme.c; using regular 'read' instead
     1228- mondo-restore.c uses newt instead of ncurses; much prettier that way
     1229- cdrecord now uses a 16MB FIFO buffer (was 8MB)
     1230- fixed floating point error in mondo-restore (when showing progress)
     1231- when mondo-restore is called without params (e.g. by Interactive Mode), it lets the user choose between nuke, interactive or compare (or abort)
     1232- updated the FAQ
     1233- working on Cuckoo Mode...
     1235v1.09 (2001-08-02)
     1236- default compression level is now 3 (was 2)
     1237- retry/fail/abort loop bug fixed
     1238- calls mindi with "--custom $TMP $scratchdir/images" to force mindi to use my temp dir and to put the images in my 'images' folder
     1240v1.08 (2001-07-28)
     1241- offer to Retry/Fail/Abort if an error occurs when Mondo tries to burn a CD-R
     1242- warn if kernel is 2.4.[0-5] (could have buggy loopfs code)
     1243- tested with RAID-5 --- works fine :-)
     1245v1.07 (2001-07-22)
     1246- fixed cosmetic mistake in an error msg in mondo-tarme ('continue'-related)
     1247- hack-fstab now uses "defaults 0 0" instead of "default 1 3" when making a new entry in /etc/fstab
     1248- /mondo/restore-me always makes /mnt/RESTORING/tmp; so does mondo-restore.c
     1249- cosmetic changes to mondo-restore.c's screen output
     1250- RAID-related enhancements to mondo-restore.c - RAID bkp/restore appears to be stable - it is possible to move from non-RAID to RAID by backing up, wiping, creating /etc/raidtab, modifying /tmp/mountlist.txt and then restoring - mondo-restore.c works well - the only weakness is that the kernel's messages are written to the current console, not to a separate console... HELP? :-)
     1251- updated README (esp. FAQ) and TODO
     1252- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
     1253- mondo-1.07.spec and compile every C program with -lncurses, just in case some programs (besides mondo-restore.c) need the NCURSES library
     1254- mondo-restore.c is now compiled statically
     1256v1.06 (2001-07-19)
     1257- now software-RAID compatible
     1258- only compiles mondo-restore.c once now
     1259- if scratchdir or isodir contain more than one path (each), abort
     1260- mondo-restore.c creates dummy partitions if the user starts the official etc/fstab table at /dev/hda7 or something; so, partitioning should work, even if the mountlist has some gaps
     1261- for each /dev/md* device in the mountlist, run raidstop before mkraid
     1263v1.05 (2001-07-16)
     1264- patch from DoJ to make compile with -O2, not -O
     1265- cosmetic changes to the biggiefile-slicing code
     1266- fixed
     1268v1.04 (2001-07-15)
     1269- make-me-bootable only "boot-makes" each partition ONCE now
     1270- cosmetic changes to mondo-restore's logfile output
     1271- mondo-restore.c makes /mnt/RESTORING/tmp if necessary
     1272- should be able to cope with Red Hat's "LABEL=" messages in /etc/fstab
     1274v1.03 (2001-07-14)
     1275- looks for /etc/lilo.conf; aborts if it cannot locate it
     1276- abort if burning CD's & verify level>=2 (must be 1 or 0 if burning CD's)
     1277- catch errors in MakeIsoFS, if any
     1278- added 'mondo-restore.c'
     1279    - C program, to replace the old restore scripts
     1280    - Mindi will incorporate it in the data disks, if it can find Mondo - Mindi will also incorporate the old restore scripts (from Mondo) just in case the new C program doesn't work
     1281    - calls the script, 'stablilo-me' to run LILO if desired
     1282- added 'restore-scripts.tgz', which contains the /mondo scripts that used to live in Mindi; now, Mindi grabs them from here if necessary
     1283- cleared up Mode-related scripts & the executable to replace them
     1284- if mkisofs fails, ABORT, don't just warn
     1285- added '--differential' option, to backup the files changed during the last N days (N specified by user)
     1287v1.02 (2001-07-07)
     1288- retract the CD tray after asking user to enter 'continue' (PauseAndAskForCDR)
     1289- uses C program instead of bash loop for PauseAndAskForCDR; some bash versions go into an infinite loop for no reason; hopefully, outsourcing to C will help
     1290- when slicing, indicate progress ("N slices...")
     1291- when told to '--burn-cds', Mondo pipes mkisofs's output to cdrecord, instead of saving the ISO file to disk first; this change will save time and space (not in the Star Trek sense, however *smile*)
     1292- default set size (native) is now 12MB
     1293- copy /usr/share/mondo to correct directory within CD
     1294- all calls to gawk have been replaced with calls to awk
     1295- RPM and SRPM published
     1296- delete $TMP at end; don't just delete $TMP/*
     1297- can accept multiple parameters in the '--bkpath' switch
     1299v1.00 (2001-07-04)
     1300- thanks to recent changes to Mindi, Mondo is now compatible with the filesystem formats JFS, ext3, ReiserFS, XFS and ext2 (if your own kernel is)
     1301- CDs [2-N] do not have boot floppy images on them; only CD#1 does (although CDs [2-N] do have the El Torito boot image, just in case...)
     1302- modified the --burn-cds switch; now it takes 3rd param, 'cdrw' (optional) to let you wipe and rewrite CDRWs instead of wasting CDRs ;-)
     1303- removed that PID thing; doesn't work; please don't run Mondo twice at once :)
     1304- removed that "filenames contain '|'" error & associated problems
     1305- got rid of 'UNSAFE' warning/shortcut
     1306- removed --xerox-dev, --include-tarball, --skip-tildes, --ide-opt, --use-bzip2
     1307- mondo-archive doesn't make/hack/edit mountlist anymore; that's Mindi's job
     1308- uses Mindi Linux to make boot disks & data disks based on your distro
     1309- boot&data stuff goes in $scratchdir/images now
     1310- bzip2 is used by default to compress archives
     1311- don't make MD5 checksums if verify_level==0
     1312- when archiving, make N.tar.bz2 and cklist.txt (tarball+checksums) in parallel
     1313- at end of mondo-archive, remove scratchdir and TMP completely IF they were created by Mondo (e.g. /home/mondo.scratch or /home/tmp.mondo.12345)
     1314- fill CD/image up to 1MB less than its max size; was being filled up to about 8MB less than its max size, which wasted 8-10MB of storage space per disk
     1316v0.99 (2001-03-15)
     1317- /proc and /tmp removed --- i.e. added to exclude list :)
     1318- Mondo now uses 2.4-series kernel and modules (Bruno Cornec)
     1319- minor typos fixed (Bruno Cornec)
     1320- older, restore-related fixes merged w/Bruce's work (Maciej Kulasa)
     1321- better RPM spec file (Bruno Cornec)
     1322- incorporated Mondo v0.977's restore scripts' bugfixes (Maciej Kulasa)
     1324v0.981 (2001-03-06)
     1325- put 'dd' in coolstuff.tgz (Art Wells)
     1327v0.98 (2001-02-28)
     1328- INSTALL script renamed to
     1329- tarball cleaned up and re-tarred (Art Wells)
     1330- trailing CR/LF's cleaned from scripts (Art Wells)
     1331- work is underway to make Mondo compatible with the Linux kernel's 2.4 series
     1333v0.977 (2001-02-26)
     1334- based on v0.976
     1335- missing subs and silly typos fixed in restore scripts (Maciej Kulasa)
     1336- fstab files containing NFS mounts are handled properly (Petre Scheie)
     1337- Mondo is being actively developed again (yippee!)
     1339v0.976 (2000-09-01)
     1340- technical changes - 12MB ramdisk - repackaged: now, Mondo comes in big tarball/RPM with all overhead-files - each Mondo CD has a 15MB administrative overhead; used to be 50-60MB - definitely 386-compatible now (RH 6.2 binaries) - Linux-Mandrake 7.1 (2.2.16) kernel w/ReiserFS & Supermount - modules.conf / conf.modules support (whichever you've got) - user may include their own copies of modules, if Mondo doesn't come with the requisite modules already
     1341- extra facilities - ReiserFS support - '--load-modules <foo> <bar> ...' will allow you to force Mondo to load key modules at boot-time, e.g. aic7xxx for SCSI-only users
     1342- bugfixes - path-exclusion code (mondo-backup) - bogus 'flaws=1' message has been eradicated - CDRW-finding code is now much better at finding the CDRW correctly - dummy burn mode is working again - fixed security hole (thanks, Matija); now, user will be warned if Mondo is configured to execute /tmp/mondo-tarme - changed lots of 'grep " $string "' to 'grep -w "$string"' (thanks, Matija)
     1344v0.975 (2000-07-03)
     1345- made mondo-tarme use 'ask-me-a-question' to pause for new, blank CD-Rs
     1346- don't deeply search isodir for ISO files to wipe: maxdepth should be 1
     1347- 386-compatible kernel and modules (should be, anyway...)
     1348- applied Doug Nordwall's calc-disk-size patch to fix SCSI hdd size calc'n bug
     1349- applied Michael Ralph Pape's SCSI (2nd floppy) patch
     1350- removed devdump from overhead-list
     1351- mkisofs no longer called with '-quiet' switch
     1352- changed '--burn-cds' format: now it's --burn-cds <speed> (<device>)
     1353- added '-L' to LILO's call, so that >8GB hard disks overcome 1024-blk limit
     1354- mondo-compare runs check-mountlist-sanity before mounting partitions
     1355- ramdisk is now 14MB
     1357v0.972 (2000-06-16)
     1358- auto-archive, mondo-archive and mondo-tarme updated to make them more friendly towards mult-disk sets
     1359- if multiple CDRW drives, user is asked which mondo-archive should use
     1361v0.971 (2000-06-14)
     1362- auto-archive now passes CD size to mondo-archive
     1363- mondo-tarme, in conjunction with auto-archive, now handles CDRW boot/burn sharing much better than before
     1365v0.970 (2000-06-10)
     1366- kernel now creates 12MB ramdrive (was 16MB)
     1367- lots of silly bugs & overhead problems fixed; 2nd floppy closer to working
     1368- restore scripts all log to /var/log/mondo-restore.log
     1369- auto-archive:- - offers Low, Medium or High compression - no longer needs a spare hard drive for scratch space; uses loopfs on existing hard drive (if possible) instead - handles weird (multi-CDROM) PCs more gracefully now - handles PCs with CDRW but without CDROM more gracefully now - deletes each ISO after burning it to a CD-R (if it _is_ burning them) - asks if PC is old & crappy; if it is, IDE optimizations are disabled at backup-time and restore-time - lets user use CDRW for booting _and_ burning, thanks to reroute-softlinks
     1370- selective restore is finally fixed
     1371- nicer help screens on boot floppy
     1373v0.965 (2000-06-03)
     1374- 2MB of space left empty at end of every CD (e.g. 650MB is only 648MB full)
     1375- Suzhe & Lonius's SmartBootManager (sbminst) is used instead of Win98's MBR
     1376- Mondo may now resize Windows-only backups when restoring
     1377- silly bugs in prep-me... fixed
     1379v0.964 (2000-06-02)
     1380- VFAT partitions >8GB handled OK now
     1381- 2nd floppy (optionally) created for SCSI users <--- not working yet
     1382- better calc-disk-size algorithm (thanks, Doug Nordwall)
     1383- Mondo can now backup and restore Windows-only PCs! :-)
     1384- silly prep-me and format-and-kludge-vfat bugs fixed
     1385- 'resize hack' retitled as 'vacuum-pack'
     1387v0.963 (2000-05-31)
     1388- ISO images are no longer padded
     1389- all currently-loaded modules are backed up to custom hboot.img & installed at restore-time before CD is accessed
     1390- '--burn-cd <speed>' switch added
     1391- '--no-opt' switch added; use it in the call to mondo-archive if you don't want IDE optimization when restoring
     1392- lots of work done on auto-archive
     1393- mondo-extras-1.5 created; excludes mondo-zfile but includes hlib.tar.bz2
     1394- boot floppy image now includes kernel w/lots of SCSI stuff
     1395- slice* deleted (WipeArchives); was 'slices*' (bug!)
     1396- restore scripts all use 'lastbit-me' to find the 'X' part of '/dev/X' device; this will make it easier to port Mondo to kernel 2.4.x
     1397- I cannot make SCSI-based CDROMs boot from Mondo CDs properly... but SCSI hard drives and ZIP drives should be handled ok from now on
     1398- with a little coaxing, Mondo will backup Windows-only PCs (as well as Lin/Win and Linux-only PCs)
     1400v0.962 (2000-05-25)
     1401- silly bug in mondo-checksum fixed
     1402- stale tmp dirs are now definitely deleted (bug fixed)
     1403- "Job is  percent d complete. hh:ss to go." --- much better 'progress' string
     1404- 'buffer' is gone again :) thank goodness
     1405- only 1st ISO is padded; the rest aren't.
     1406- working on implementing an easy 'cdrecord' shortcut-call-thingy
     1407- mondo-archive doesn't try to delete loopfs unless it exists
     1408- mondo-restore's "hack-softlinks" - silly bug ($1/ missing) fixed
     1409- boot floppy image now includes mkdir and rmdir
     1410- user may specify temp directory using '--tempdir <path>'
     1411- mondo-archive now includes a copy of 'buffer' for future use
     1412- Mondo will now archive and restore Linux AND LinWin systems ok. W00H00! :-)
     1414v0.961 (2000-05-23)
     1415- mondo-checksum ignores files <2k in length
     1416- default compression level is 4
     1417- default verify level is 2
     1418- files <3k in size aren't compressed
     1419- filelist no longer includes bashbug, dosfsck or dir
     1420- bs-me is disabled in mondo-restore
     1421- fixed bug in 'hack-fstab' which stopped processing fstab if blank line found
     1423v0.960 (2000-05-22)
     1424- mondo-vfat-1.0 package released, to provide kludging for VFAT bootables
     1425- logfile now saved at /var/log/mondo-archive.log (not `pwd`/mondo-archive.log)
     1426- pid registered/checked _after_ command line processed... so you can do --help without being shouted at ;)
     1427- restore-me broken into 2 scripts: untar-me and biggify-me
     1428- restore-subroutine-me now renamed untar-subroutine-me
     1429- bzip2 decompression should work again ;) ... a missing '-Z' was added to the afio call, and the usr/lib/libbz* libraries are now included on CD ISOs
     1430- fixed hack-lilo to ignore blank lines
     1431- really ugly boot kludge has been implemented, using embleer files to make newly-formatted VFAT partitions bootable

    551.18.5-3 (2013-03-15)
     6- Try to improve ctrl-alt-del detection by adding busybox options (including syslog, klog which were missing). showkey show that the sendkey from KVM generates the right keycodes however the system still doesn't reboot. This is then still a limitation as per #627 (Bruno Cornec)
     7- mindi-busybox now uses an inittab which should help fixing #627 (Bruno Cornec)
     8- Patches to render this mindi-busybox version compatible with RHEL3 at least, potentially all older Linux 2.4 based distros (Bruno Cornec)

     15- Adds support for SUID binaries (Bruno Cornec)
     16- Fix #499 for good, by using a real init from busybox and moving our init script to etc/init.d/rcS. We also now call the reboot from busybox to exit, which indeed reset the system correctly (in a VM at least which wasn't the case before). Requires a new mindi-busybox as well. (Bruno Cornec)
