  • fix typo in label-partitions-as-necessary which doesn't seem to work
  • Update to busybox 1.7.2
  • perl is now required at restore time to support uuid swap partitions (and will be used for many other thigs

in the future for sure)

  • next mindi version will be 2.0.0 due to all the changes made in it (udev may break working distros)
  • small optimization in mindi on keyboard handling (one single find instead of multiple)
  • better interaction for USB device when launching mindi manually
  • attempt to automatically guess block disk size for ramdisk
  • fix typos in bkphw

  • Create MONDO_CACHE and use it everywhere + creation at start
  • Really never try to eject a USB device
  • Fix a issue with &> usage (replaced with 1> and 2>)
  • Adds magic file to depllist in order to have file working + ldd which helps for debugging issues

  • Fix when restoring from USB: media is asked in interactive mode
  • Adds USB support for mondorestore
  • mount_cdrom => mount_media
  • elilo.efi is now searched throughout /boot/efi and not in a fixed place as there is no standard
  • untar-and-softlink => untar (+ interface change)
  • suppress useless softlinks creation/removal in boot process
  • avoids udevd messages on groups
  • Increase # of disks to 99 as in mindi at restore time (should be a conf file parameter)
  • skip existing big file creation
  • seems to work correctly for USB mindi boot
  • Adds group and tty link to udev conf
  • Always load usb-torage (even 2.6) to initiate USB bus discovery

  • better default for mindi when using --usb
  • Handles dynamically linked busybox (in case we want to use it soon ;-)
  • Adds fixed devices to create for udev
  • ide-generic should not be part of the initrd when using libata v2
  • support a dynamically linked udev (case on Ubuntu 7.10 and Mandriva 2008.0 so should be quite generic) This will give incitation to move to dyn. linked binaries in the initrd which will help for other tasks (ia6 4)
  • Improvement in udev support (do not use cl options not available in busybox)
  • Udev in mindi
    • auto creation of the right links at boot time with udev-links.conf(from Mandriva 2008.0)
    • rework startup of udev as current makes kernel crash (from Mandriva 2008.0)
    • add support for 64 bits udev
  • Try to render MyInsmod? silent at boot time

  • Try to improve install in mindi to avoid issues with isolinux.cfg not installed vene if in the pkg :-(
  • Improve mindi-busybox build
  • In conformity with pb 0.8.9
  • Add support for Ubuntu 7.10 in build process
  • Add USB Key button to Menu UI (CD streamer removed)
  • Attempt to fix error messages on tmp/scratch files at the end by removing those dir at the latest possible.
  • Fix a bug linked to the size of the -E param which could be used (Arnaud Tiger/René? Ribaud).
  • Integrate ~/.pbrc content into mondorescue.pb (required project-builder >= 0.8.7)
  • Put mondorescue in conformity with new pb filtering rules
  • Add USB support at restore time (no test done yet). New start-usb script PB varibale added where useful
  • Unmounting USB device before removal of temporary scratchdir
  • Stil refining USB copy back to mondo (one command was not executed)
  • No need to have the image subdor in the csratchdir when USB.
  • umount the USB partition before attempting to use it

6menu "Archival Utilities"
8config AR
9    bool "ar"
10    default n
11    help
12      ar is an archival utility program used to create, modify, and
13      extract contents from archives.  An archive is a single file holding
14      a collection of other files in a structure that makes it possible to
15      retrieve the original individual files (called archive members).
16      The original files' contents, mode (permissions), timestamp, owner,
17      and group are preserved in the archive, and can be restored on
18      extraction.
20      The stored filename is limited to 15 characters. (for more information
21      see long filename support).
22      ar has 60 bytes of overheads for every stored file.
24      This implementation of ar can extract archives, it cannot create or
25      modify them.
26      On an x86 system, the ar applet adds about 1K.
28      Unless you have a specific application which requires ar, you should
29      probably say N here.
32    bool "Enable support for long filenames (not need for debs)"
33    default n
34    depends on AR
35    help
36      By default the ar format can only store the first 15 characters of the
37      filename, this option removes that limitation.
38      It supports the GNU ar long filename method which moves multiple long
39      filenames into a the data section of a new ar entry.
41config BUNZIP2
42    bool "bunzip2"
43    default n
44    help
45      bunzip2 is a compression utility using the Burrows-Wheeler block
46      sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding.  Compression
47      is generally considerably better than that achieved by more
48      conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the
49      performance of the PPM family of statistical compressors.
51      The BusyBox bunzip2 applet is limited to de-compression only.
52      On an x86 system, this applet adds about 11K.
54      Unless you have a specific application which requires bunzip2, you
55      should probably say N here.
57config CPIO
58    bool "cpio"
59    default n
60    help
61      cpio is an archival utility program used to create, modify, and extract
62      contents from archives.
63      cpio has 110 bytes of overheads for every stored file.
65      This implementation of cpio can extract cpio archives created in the
66      "newc" or "crc" format, it cannot create or modify them.
68      Unless you have a specific application which requires cpio, you should
69      probably say N here.
71config DPKG
72    bool "dpkg"
73    default n
74    help
75      dpkg is a medium-level tool to install, build, remove and manage Debian packages.

78      official dpkg if possible.
80config DPKG_DEB
81    bool "dpkg_deb"
82    default n
83    help
84      dpkg-deb packs, unpacks and provides information about Debian archives.
86      This implementation of dpkg-deb cannot pack archives.
88      Unless you have a specific application which requires dpkg-deb, you should
89      probably say N here.
92    bool "extract only (-x)"
93    default n
94    depends on DPKG_DEB
95    help
96      This reduces dpkg-deb to the equivalent of "ar -p <deb> data.tar.gz | tar -zx".
97      However it saves space as none of the extra dpkg-deb, ar or tar options are
98      needed, they are linked to internally.
100config GUNZIP
101    bool "gunzip"
102    default n
103    help
104      gunzip is used to decompress archives created by gzip.
