  • 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
  • Fix the remaining problem with UUID support for swap partitions
  • Updates mondoarchive man page for USB support

  • Be conservative in test for the start-nfs script
  • Update config file for mindi-busybox for 1.7.2 migration
  • Try to run around a busybox bug (1.2.2 pb on inexistant links)
  • Add build content for mindi-busybox in pb
  • Remove distributions content for mindi-busybox
  • Fix a warning on inexistant raidtab
  • Solve problem on tmpfs in restore init (Problem of inexistant symlink and busybox)
  • 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

  • Use ext3 normally and not ext2 instead
  • USB device should be corrected after reading (take 1st part)
  • Adds a mount_USB_here function derived from mount_CDROM_here
  • usb detection place before /dev detection in device name at restore time
  • 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

  • udevd remove from deplist s handled in mindi directly
  • 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

  • - Supress g_erase_tmpdir_and_scratchdir
  • Improve some log messages for USB support
  • 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
  • Remove useless copy from mindi to mondo at end of USB handling

(risky merge, we are raising the limits of 2 diverging branches. The status of stable is not completely sure as such. Will need lots of tests, but it's not yet done :-()

6menu "System Logging Utilities"
8config SYSLOGD
9    bool "syslogd"
10    default n
11    help
12      The syslogd utility is used to record logs of all the
13      significant events that occur on a system.  Every
14      message that is logged records the date and time of the
15      event, and will generally also record the name of the
16      application that generated the message.  When used in
17      conjunction with klogd, messages from the Linux kernel
18      can also be recorded.  This is terribly useful,
19      especially for finding what happened when something goes
20      wrong.  And something almost always will go wrong if
21      you wait long enough....
24    bool "Rotate message files"
25    default n
26    depends on SYSLOGD
27    help
28      This enables syslogd to rotate the message files
29      on his own. No need to use an external rotatescript.
32    bool "Remote Log support"
33    default n
34    depends on SYSLOGD
35    help
36      When you enable this feature, the syslogd utility can
37      be used to send system log messages to another system
38      connected via a network.  This allows the remote
39      machine to log all the system messages, which can be
40      terribly useful for reducing the number of serial
41      cables you use.  It can also be a very good security
42      measure to prevent system logs from being tampered with
43      by an intruder.
46    bool "Circular Buffer support"
47    default n
48    depends on SYSLOGD
49    help
50      When you enable this feature, the syslogd utility will
51      use a circular buffer to record system log messages.
52      When the buffer is filled it will continue to overwrite
53      the oldest messages.  This can be very useful for
54      systems with little or no permanent storage, since
55      otherwise system logs can eventually fill up your
56      entire filesystem, which may cause your system to
57      break badly.
60    int "    Circular buffer size in Kbytes (minimum 4KB)"
61    default 16
62    range 4 2147483647
63    depends on FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
64    help
65      This option sets the size of the circular buffer
66      used to record system log messages.
68config LOGREAD
69    bool "logread"
70    default y
71    depends on FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
72    help
73      If you enabled Circular Buffer support, you almost
74      certainly want to enable this feature as well.  This
75      utility will allow you to read the messages that are
76      stored in the syslogd circular buffer.
79    bool "logread double buffering"
80    default n
81    depends on LOGREAD
82    help
83      'logread' ouput to slow serial terminals can have
84      side effects on syslog because of the semaphore.
85      This option make logread to double buffer copy
86      from circular buffer, minimizing semaphore
87      contention at some minor memory expense.
89config KLOGD
90    bool "klogd"
91    default n
92    help
93      klogd is a utility which intercepts and logs all
94      messages from the Linux kernel and sends the messages
95      out to the 'syslogd' utility so they can be logged.  If
96      you wish to record the messages produced by the kernel,
97      you should enable this option.
99config LOGGER
100    bool "logger"
101    default n
102    select FEATURE_SYSLOG
103    help
104        The logger utility allows you to send arbitrary text
105        messages to the system log (i.e. the 'syslogd' utility) so
106        they can be logged.  This is generally used to help locate
107        problems that occur within programs and scripts.
