531- improved SizeOfPartition() function
532- improved TryToFindKernelPath() function
533- don't offer NFS users Nuke Mode
534- finds and uses lilo.real if user is using Debian, a distro which
535  installs a shell script where the lilo executable should go
536- improved support for XFS users who opt to use failsafe kernel
537- uses user's lsmod, depmod, insmod, etc.
538- fixed freeze-up resulting from missing 'cat $mappath' command
539- mount tmpfs at /tmp/tmpfs for mondo-restore's benefit

546v0.52-2
547- fixed a bug in the handling of non-English keyboard maps
548- force failsafe kernel to provide reiserfs.o, xfs.o, jfs.o, ext2.o,
549  ext3.o and loop.o at boot-time, just in case
550- added /dev/sr[0-3] devices
551- copy LAST_FILELIST_NUMBER to /tmp, for compatibility with Mondo v1.3x
552- incorporates NFS-related settings, if supplied by Mondo v1.3x
553- replace busybox's mount with standard libc5 mount ater restoring

560v0.52-1
561- ramdisk's size has been tweaked
562- if script 'bootstrap' is found at boot-time then execute it
563- use tty8 to show mondo's output log
564- use tty7 to offer a game of Petris (if it exists on disk)
565- be sure to use i386-only keymaps
566- if LILO's "/tmp/dev.0" error occurs then abort & tell user to reboot
567- /sbin and /usr/sbin added temporarily to PATH when Mindi runs
568- if Mondo asks then force LILO to run in backward-compatible mode
569- if Mondo's tmpdir has post-nuke.tgz in it then extract it and
570  incorporate its files in the data disks
571- losetup /dev/loop0 -d before calling LILO (Norm Crowfoot)
572- if keyboard mapping dir (usu. /lib/kbd or /usr/lib/kbd) cannot be
573  found then don't abort; simply tell the user the default keyboard
574  mapping will be used
575- added /dev/hd[a,b,c,d][17-24] to the rootfs tarball
576- won't use LILO's optimizations when creating boot floppy; however,
577  optimizations are used on CD unless --broken-bios in call to Mondo
578- won't write data disks to start of tape; lets Mondo do that
579- tweaked how Mindi moves all.tar.gz around, to make it more
580  Mondo-friendly
581- tweaked Mindi's disk-splitter
582- user must unmount /dev/loop0 before calling Mindi: LILO insists...
583- added NFS-related entries to deplist.txt
584- if not called by Mondo then don't let user choose Interactive/Nuke/
585  whatever; just offer Expert

589""""""""""
590v0.51-1
591    - removed libm.* from rootfs.tgz
592    - replaced sh with busybox's ash
593    - upgraded busybox to 0.60-2; pared it down, too
594        - include tape-related modules on boot disk, if backing up to tape
595    - creates a tape-friendly tarball containing tools+modules
596    - reassembly of tools+libraries is more reliable now
597    - streamlined deplist.txt
598    - give user their localized keyboard layout at boot-time
599    - fix some cosmetic bugs
600
601
60212-19-2001
603""""""""""
604v0.50-4
605    - log Mindi's version# in the event of a fatal error
606    - make Mindi's boot-time output more esthetically pleasing
607    - if filesystem is type 'image', according to Mondo, then in filelist
608      its partition type will be listed as the hexadecimal string (e.g.
609          'b', '83', etc.) and the partition mountpoint will be 'image'
610
611
61212-15-2001
613""""""""""
614v0.50-2
615    - support for newer features in Mondo v1.3x
616
617
618v0.50-1
619    - correctly lists RAID constituent partitions in mountlist
620    - breaks compatibility with Mondo v1.2x
621    - if user's fstab has weird line(s) then ignore; don't abort
622    - working on CDROM_MODS, trying to make it work on Stewart Charnell's
623      hardware setup
624    - cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-init a bit
625
626
627v0.48-2
628    - when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*'
629      (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
630    - if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them
631      intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)
632    - cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-ini; the former now controls
633      initialization of hardware, drivers, tools, etc. and the latter
634      runs mondo-restore if it exists
635    - better detection of and compatibility with SCSI CD-ROM drives
636    - chopsize is now 64KB; was 128KB
637    - cleaned up mindi's logging
638
639
640v0.48-1
641    - better logging of find-and-mount-cdrom's progress (to
642          /tmp/mondo-restore.log)
643    - somehow, lilo was re-enabled in deplist.txt; DISABLED (again *g*)
644    - added 'linear' to the list of modules Mindi always backs up
645    - if called by Mondo then pass the name & device of the user's boot
646          loader to the restore phase, by copying BOOTLOADER.* to the ramdisk
647    - if loading from floppies then try to mount CD-ROM a 2nd time after
648      extracting files from data floppies, just in case user is a CD user
649      who couldn't get their CD-ROM drive to work initially
650    - added fix to make sure /root/images/mindi is created (Charlie Root)
651    - aware of 'iso' boot mode, for future expansion
652
653
654v0.47
655    - added /dev/cdrom/cdrom[1-4] to the devices automatically excluded
656      from mountlist.txt
657    - added '-f-' to the end of most tar commands, to see if it fixes a
658      bug in some obscure Debian distros
659    - added network-related dependencies to deplist.txt
660    - if called by Mondo then don't write floppy images to disks; let
661      Mondo do that: less irritating for user
662    - if called by Mondo then do some clever tricks to add mondo-restore
663      and its dependencies (mondo-restore is now a dynamic executable)
664    - finally gotten klogd to squelch echoing of kernel msgs to console
665
666
667v0.46
668    - finally fixed that 'lib/modules/2.4.12-xfs not found' bug! :-D
669    - cosmetic changes and minor bugfixes
670    - excluded lilo.conf and lilo from deplist.txt; use user's copy instead
671    - if your fstab mentions a RAID partition but your raidtab doesn't then
672      Mindi will terminate in a sane manner with a sane error message
673    - fixed a bug in bug-me (heh, how ironic)
674    - include and run (sys)klogd to try to pipe kernel msgs to logfile
675    - call hdparm to speed up access to CD-ROM drive
676
677
678v0.45
679    - disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
680    - include /etc/fstab in logfile
681    - removed lzop.* from aux-tools; should come from user's distro anyway
682    - tweaked data disk size and data disk formatting command
683    - make ISO bootable image (as well as floppies) when backing up to tape
684    - copy boot images (floppy + CD) from temp dir to /root/images/mindi
685      after making them, just in case the user wants them later
686    - added md5sum to deplist.txt
687    - added pico->vi softlink to ramdisk
688    - in the ramdisk's /etc/bashrc, added /usr/local/bin and
689          /usr/local/sbin to the PATH= command
690    - call insert-all-modules as background task; pause 3 seconds after
691      calling it, before proceeding <--- /sbin/init
692    - call to devfs has been moved to before call to post-init
693    - added 'md5sum -> busybox' softlink
694    - Mindi now uses busybox's printf, md5sum, mount, umount, vi
695      ...NB: I said, 'vi' :-) Now you have an editor again! :-)
696    - added lilo.real to deplist.txt, to allow for Debian's evil new distro
697    - added lzop to deplist.txt
698    - no longer including lzop in Mindi's tarball / RPM
699    - improved Mindi's error-reporting a little bit
700    - changed deplist.txt's /etc/* to just *
701    - restructured the calls in /sbin/post-init that reinitialize the LVM
702      and RAID modules
703    - if mkfs.ext2 is not in PATH then abort
704    - Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time
705      (Jean-David Marrow)
706    - Red Hat 7.2 uses a weird /etc/issue.net; I've worked around it...
707    - tested with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2
708
709
710v0.44
711    - at boot-time, activate LV's if they exist
712    - restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
713    - re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
714    - analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted
715      the module anyway
716
717
718v0.43
719    - made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
720    - if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred
721      while I was trying to make an ISO image'
722    - when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is
723      indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
724    - make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are
725      backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
726    - fixed a silly bug that stopped Mindi from handling its own modules
727      properly; only affects newbie users with broken kernels (i.e. the
728      very people that Mindi's failsafe kernel was meant to help!)
729    - added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
730    - added Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch; if user uses the switch
731      (i.e. '--cd-recovery yes') then the CD will boot to a screen that
732      pauses until the user types RESTORE; then, it will enter Nuke Mode
733    - added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
734    - failsafe kernel is now 2.4.12 with XFS, JFS and lots of SCSI modules;
735      the addition of XFS and extensive SCSI support will increase the
736      size of Mindi's RPM / tarball significantly but I think it's worth it
737    - at boot-time, find out whether there are any RAID partitions; and if
738      there are, whether they are 'started' yet; if not, run raidstart to
739      start them at boot-time, before user can try to mount anything
740    - Mindi's failsafe kernel & modules are handled more elegantly now;
741      if you have raid1.o, scsi.o, etc. loaded at backup-time then Mindi
742      finds its corresponding modules in its tarball of failsafe modules
743      and stores them so that at boot-time you can do SCSI, RAID, etc.
744    - removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
745
746
747v0.42
748    - make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
749    - added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
750    - changed the slice size from 20KB to 64KB; speeds up Mindi by 25%
751      and doesn't have any negative side-effects (...that I can see)
752    - when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine
753      a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
754    - when asking user to send me a copy of their log file, point out
755      that it may contain info which they do not want me to see but that
756      they are SOL unless I can actually see their log file
757    - fixed a silly bug that would crop up when a Linux-Mandrake 8.1 user
758      would use a devfs-enabled kernel and RAID partitions at the same time
759    - plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
760    - data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
761    - if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
762    - fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other
763          at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
764    - enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
765    - disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if
766      s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
767    - tested successfully with the following distros
768      - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel
769      - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel
770    - better at guessing the size of swap partition
771    - drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants
772          to use the minix filesystem
773    - don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be
774      selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
775    - if the user has two glibc libraries - one in /lib and one in
776      /lib/i686 - then Mindi will re-jig the softlinks so that only the
777      version in /lib is backed up, to save space on the data disks
778    - major rewrite of the code that copies the tools and libraries from
779      the data disks; prettier, faster and more stable (and did I mention
780      how kind it is to your hard-working hands?)
781    - better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
782    - new boot-time script, 'bug-me', copies user's logs to a floppy and
783          tells him/her to e-mail them to me if mondo-restore aborts
784    - ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels
785      are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
786    - no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded
787          at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
788    - removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
789    - LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
790    - included a tarball of 'sane' /dev/loop* nodes which will be extracted
791          and added to the boot disk; this helps maintain Mindi's backward-
792          compatibility with non-devfs kernels and distros
793    - when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first
794          if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
795    - no longer copies all loaded modules to the 2.88 MB El Torito bootable
796      floppy image; instead, it copies FLOPPY_MODS to the 1.72 MB image,
797          CDROM_MODS to the 2.88 MB image, and _all_ modules that were loaded
798          at backup-time to the data disks
799        - supports tape streamers, in conjunction with Mondo
800    - uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
801    - if Mondo is backing up to tape streamer then write the tape's size to
802          /tmp/TAPESIZE and the drive's device to /tmp/TAPEDEV-LIVES-HERE on
803          the ramdisk
804    - floppy disk modules (ide-floppy.o and floppy.o) now are copied
805          to the ramdisk, whether the user's kernel or the failsafe kernel
806          is being used
807
808
809v0.41
810    - excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
811    - updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
812    - added umount to deplist again
813    - improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM
814          drive and floppy disk drives)
815    - don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
816    - restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from
817          deplist but also from busybox)
818    - fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
819        - experimental LVM support
820    - added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
821    - able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
822    - added the LVM executables (listed in the lvm-0.xx-i386.rpm) to
823      deplist.txt; they won't be added unless you have them and you won't
824      have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
825    - added date and sync to deplist again
826    - when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
827    - amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1
828          spaces between cols
829      checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
830    - incorporated busybox 0.60-1; now, Mindi is faster at run-time and
831          smaller at boot-time; you can fit a typical system onto 3 floppies;
832          also, a kernel up to 1MB in size (approx.) can now be accommodated
833    - supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
834    - Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies
835          _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
836    - thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be
837          able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
838    - boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
839    - exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
840        - exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
841    - removed A LOT of files from deplist.txt's dependency list; they are
842          listed in deplist.removed, in case you want to put them back :-)
843    - excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you
844          add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]
845    - rewrote AddFileToDir() to make it more efficient (but slower...)
846    - strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip
847          comments from /etc/termcap
848
849
850v0.40
851    - if you use a softlink to your CD dev, e.g. /dev/cdrecorder->scd0,
852          then Mindi should handle it properly now (i.e. not bomb out)
853    - if you have a large kernel & lots of modules loaded, Mindi will only
854      copy as many modules to the ramdisk as will _fit_ on a ramdisk that
855          will have to go alongside your kernel on a 2.88MB floppy disk
856    - if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
857    - turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure
858      out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
859    - changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
860    - Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
861    - gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
862    - working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible
863      with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
864    - dropped the '-c' option from LILO call
865        - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
866    - slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it
867          try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
868    - excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script
869          because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
870    - added code to copy your fstab, lilo.conf, etc. to a tarball which, in
871          the event of an error, Mindi will ask the user to e-mail me
872
873
874v0.39
875    - plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX
876      softlinks are still there :-)
877    - if your swap partition isn't mounted, Mindi will decide that it is
878      125MB; it used to abort but now it just warns & makes a good guess
879    - testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
880    - only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
881    - copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
882    - better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
883    - semi-forces isofs and ide-cd (not isofs.o and ide-cd.o); the former
884          will be more compatible with stock kernels - e.g. Red Hat, Mandrake;
885          also added vfat, fat & a few other modules to the list of 'foced'.
886    - removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't
887          like it very much)
888    - removed chaff from ramdisk's /etc/login.defs, saving approx 7K
889    - format the boot disks with -N 24 (was -N 64)
890    - do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
891    - amend format-and-kludge-vfat; now, it will not abort if it cannot
892      find its entry in mountlist; it doesn't need to find the entry
893          anyway, except to check that the kludge works (which it does)
894    - if user chooses to use Mindi's failsafe 2.4.9 kernel, Mindi will load
895          Mindi's versions of user's modules at boot-time
896    - make label-devices-as-necessary log its efforts
897    - added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
898        - if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive
899          instead of just mondo-restore
900        - replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
901    - improved the post-run clean-up
902    - force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances
903          Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
904    - Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running
905          mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
906    - /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
907    - disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything
908          anyway & were probably confusing some users)
909    - removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes
910          care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
911    - included a copy of mondo-manual.html
912    - only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course);
913          otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
914        - use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
915    - moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz
916
917
918v0.38                                                              08/18/2001
919        - clarified the 'more than one kernel found' comment
920    - updated the README to emphasize that the scripts are deprecated
921    - when displaying mountlist on screen, make it easier to read
922    - changed most 'echo's to 'LogIt()'s; log most screen output to
923          /var/log/mindi.log
924    - user can now use a stock 2.4.7 kernel (which comes with Mindi)
925          if the user's distro's kernel isn't right for a boot disk
926
927
928v0.37                                                              08/12/2001
929        - changed the boot screen a little bit
930    - changed the "cannot boot from CD-ROM" message (more informative now)
931    - if an 'insmod'ed module cannot be found, warn but don't abort
932    - that whole loop-mount/extract tgz to ramdisk thing --- if it fails,
933          abort, don't try to continue; also, ask if loopfs is supported by
934      kernel (if not, that might explain the error)
935    - in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search
936          /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
937    - run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to
938          /tmp/mondo-restore.log
939    - default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the
940          disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
941    - if CDROM can't find itself (long story, re: El Torito) then the
942      script will say, "Your kernel is b0rken." This will reduce the
943      number of erroneous error reports that I receive from users
944    - working on implementing Cuckoo Mode again
945
946
947v0.36                                                              08/03/2001
948    - testing it with LM8, RH71 and Slack8
949    - explicitily exluding /mnt/floppy and /floppy from mountlist.txt
950    - warn if afio not found (Mondo needs afio)
951    - optional --custom <temp dir> <out dir> switch added, to let the user
952      specify where the temp dirs and created images will be stored
953    - changed /sbin/init to install modules _before_ trying to mount
954          CD-ROM (David Granz)
955    - create a gawk->awk shortcut at restore-time if necessary
956    - specifically exclude /dev/fd0h1440 and /dev/fd0H1440 from mountlist
957    - removed silly "was CD inserted?" message
958
959
960v0.35
961    - if LILO fails, it writes its errors to the screen
962    - use user's boot.b and LILO instead of Mindi's
963    - tarball/RPM no longer includes boot.b or lilo
964    - mke2fs' output will be echoed to screen, if an error occurs
965    - doubled the -N inode allocations and removed some of the -i inode
966      fiddles, just in case they are making Red Hat 7.1 choke
967
968
969v0.34
970    - includes patch to rid Mindi of its dependence on /dev/loop devices
971      (Bill Davidsen)
972    - includes patch from 0ystein Skalsem, to fix a disk-formatting problem
973    - warns if kernel is 2.4.0-2.4.5; encourages user to upgrade
974
975
976v0.33
977    - excludes all devices containing ':/' (i.e. NFS mountlists)
978    - the FORMAT/SYS replacement, "format-and-kludge-vfat" now writes
979      its logfile to /tmp/format-and-kludge-vfat.log
980    - /etc/fstab now mounts floppies for read/write access by default
981    - format-and-kludge-vfat should only write to log once now
982    - added vi, top to deplist.txt
983    - updated the rootfs.tgz's README
984    - mountlist is written to screen as well as mountlist.txt
985    - tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
986    - changed 'mkfs' lines, to format the loop-mounted files instead of the
987      device nodes which makes Mindi work better with kernels 2.4.6+
988    - Mindi can now handle kernels of up to 930K in size
989    - sped up the process of spreading data files across data disks
990      by approx 20%
991
992
993v0.32
994    - software RAID is now supported
995    - added the 'raidtools' binaries to deplist.txt
996    - add /etc/fstab and /etc/raidtab to deplist.txt
997    - added /dev/md* to the ramdisk's /dev directory
998    - modified MakeMountlist() to calculate correctly the sizes of
999      RAID partitions, if they are present in /etc/fstab
1000    - moved the 'LOOPDEVICE=...' code into the regular main() section
1001    - install-additional-tools makes a softlink '/etc/raidtab' that points
1002      to /mnt/groovy-stuff/etc/raidtab; also, '/etc/fstab.orig' that points
1003      to /mnt/groovy-stuff/etc/fstab
1004    - added line to 'install-additional-tools' that will delete the
1005      dummy modprobe before installing data from datadisk(s)
1006    - mkdir -p $outdir at the beginning, just in case...
1007
1008
1009
1010v0.31
1011        - included DoJ's patch to make Mindi play more nicely with devfs
1012    - slightly better install.sh and README
1013
1014
1015v0.30
1016        - added klogd and syslogd to deplist.txt
1017    - can now cope with Red Hat's "LABEL=" entries in /etc/fstab
1018    - should ignore NFS-mounted partitions now
1019
1020
1021v0.29
1022    - stopped the 'modprobe' errors that used to occur at the beginning;
1023      they didn't mean anything but they did worry some novice users
1024        - removed losetup from rootfs.tgz (wasn't doing anything useful)
1025    - removed the 'txt-or-gui' stuff from Mindi (never used it anyway)
1026    - added clear to deplist.txt
1027    - moved rootfs.tgz's "mondo/" scripts to Mondo's "restore-scripts.tgz"
1028      tarball; tarball will be untarred and contents added to the
1029          data disks at run-time, if Mindi finds the tarball
1030    - if user lacks fd0u1722 but has fd0h1722 then use the latter
1031    - boot-up msg is more informative
1032    - fixed obscure bug in find-and-mount-cdrom
1033    - better at coping with hda1/2/3/4 (normal people use hda1/5/6/7 but
1034      if you really want to exhaust your primaries, well hey, your life)
1035    - the 'outstring sucks!' message is now more informative
1036
1037
1038v0.28
1039        - if AddFileToDir() is called with a file that does not exist, Mindi
1040          warns but does not abort
1041    - should work with gzipped modules (which end in '.o.gz') and
1042          NVidia modules (which don't end in anything)
1043    - should work with Red Hat's issue.net now
1044        - misc. cosmetic changes to Mondo boot-time and restore-phase scripts,
1045          to make the visual output cleaner & more legible
1046    - insist-on-cd retracts the CD tray after asking for next CD, in case
1047      the user did not close the drive before pressing <enter>
1048    - if unable to create 1.72MB boot disk then warn but do not abort
1049    - put creation date on the boot-up screen
1050    - create data disks with tarballs up to 1700KB in size; tries harder
1051          to fill each data disk to the brim
1052    - changed the call to make ext3 partitions; now, it uses a call to
1053      mkfs -t ext3 -j -Jsize=10 -q <device> (as requested by ext3 manual)
1054    - tested w/ext3; works fine
1055    - install-additional-tools doesn't call sync until after all softlinks
1056      have been finalized; that's to make sure we call the _right_ sync
1057    - ramdisk is now (size of all files in data disks PLUS 8192) KB
1058    - RPM and SRPM published
1059    - mount CDROM at start of untar-me, just in case it wasn't mounted
1060    - when restoring selectively, log the archives that have matches
1061          & the number of matches (inc. if zero)
1062
1063
1064v0.26
1065    - has been tested with XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, ext2 and vfat
1066    - compatible (but not tested) with ext3
1067    - better at finding your kernel, even if you have several kernels
1068      of the same version (now checks the build date, too)
1069    - better file-spreading algorithm; a little faster; much more reliable
1070        - includes a copy of LILO, to make the boot disks properly
1071        - tells you how big the tarballs are, when it assembles them
1072    - compare-me uses 'insist-on-cd' instead of internal subroutine
1073    - it looks as if Mindi can actually cope with 920K kernels now :)
1074    - fixed some silly multi-CD bugs that would stop big files from being
1075      restored if they were spread across CD's
1076
1077
1078v0.25
1079    - uses its own copy of lilo
1080        - removed all "~" (backup copies) from rootfs.tgz
1081        - updated the rootfs's README - stablilo-me, not hack-me
1082    - improved the formatting of the lilo.conf as it is created
1083        - replace all libc5 tools with libc6 (user's) tools at restore-time
1084    - added diff to deplist.txt
1085    - copy io.sys and msdos.sys (if found) to data disk(s) at
1086          run-time; softlinks them to /*.sys at boot-time
1087    - fixed some vfat formatting-related issues w/Embleer (always tricky);
1088          the kludge's error-handling is better and its exit is more graceful
1089    - say 'type nuke to restore automatically' in msg if Mondo called me
1090    - backup all modules, not just the ones present/loaded at run-time;
1091      the loaded modules go on boot disk but ALL go on data disk
1092    - reduced the max data per disk from 1700 to 1680, to suit ext2's needs
1093    - DidMondoCallMe() replaces 'ps ax | grep | blah blah'
1094    - includes user's /etc/termcap and /usr/bin/pico on disk(s)
1095    - cosmetic changes to restore-time scripts (spaces, newlines, etc.)
1096    - pipe kernel's msgs to /var/log/messages
1097    - make sure /etc/lilo.conf is 600 (RW by root only)
1098
1099
1100v0.24
1101    - can accommodate a kernel >900KB in size
1102        - generates lilo.conf on-the-fly; no default/template file anymore
1103    - copies io.sys and msdos.sys to the CD (if you have them)
1104    - add the embleer tarballs to mindi-0.xx.tgz, so that users can
1105          format and make bootable msdos/Win9x partitions
1106    - added printf and hdparm to deplist.txt
1107    - incorporated Bruno Cornec's Mondo 0.991 scripts in Mindi
1108        - separated README into README, INSTALL and TODO
1109    - fixed silly {ramdisk}/sbin/InsistOnCD bug
1110    - took out mke2fs and libext from rootfs.tgz
1111    - rootfs.tgz's "/etc/bashrc" now includes /usr/share/mindi
1112    - compare-mode uses IDE optimization to speed things up
1113    - don't quibble over resizing partitions if <2MB difference
1114    - fixed silly InsistOnCD bug
1115
1116
1117v0.23
1118        - don't copy *.mdsg to boot floppy image
1119    - fixed erroneous 'cannot make ISO image' error message
1120    - can accommodate a kernel as large as 890K
1121        - now uses lilo, not syslinux (lilo works better w/2.88MB boot images)
1122    - creates & formats disk images on the fly (no more .img.gz templates)
1123    - boot disks are formatted ext2, like the data disks
1124    - creates 1.72MB and El Torito 2.88MB boot floppies/images
1125        - if called by Mondo, doesn't list images or offer to copy to FDD/CDRw
1126        - includes the distro's name and kernel version in LILO's message
1127
1128
1129v0.22
1130        - don't add a ramdisk; use rootfs & that's it
1131        - dependency-calculator runs approx. twice as fast as in v0.20
1132        - tested with Linux Mandrake 8.0; works well, if you recompile
1133          kernel to include floppy disk support (which LM8's kernel does not)
1134        - supports bigger kernels now, up to 900K in size
1135        - deplist.txt may now include directories, not just files
1136        - ignores kernel filenames that are hyperlinks
1137        - uses awk instead of gawk; drop the awk/gawk-finding thing
1138        - uses gzip, not bzip2; dropped bzip2, mv, ls to make rootfs smaller
1139        - copies user's /dev/fd0* devices to boot disk
1140        - calls Mindi's copy of syslinux, not user's copy
1141        - use modules' paths, e.g. instead of just 'insmod fubar', use
1142          'insmod /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac117/vfat/fubar.o'
1143        - in boot.msg, XXXXX is part 1 of the 2nd line, YYYYY is part 2 of
1144          the 2nd line, and ZZZZZ is Mindi's version# (in the 1st line)
1145
1146
1147v0.21
1148        - df, du, find, lsmod, rmmod have been removed from rootfs.tgz
1149        - at boot-time, inserts kernel modules w/user's original parameters
1150        - deletes the slices after recombining them & restoring the files
1151        - includes the MINDI_VER version number in boot.msg
1152        - if boot disk is too small, lists the files & which one is too big
1153        - syslinux now waits 10 seconds before booting floppy
1154        - 'insert-all-my-modules' is copied to rootfs, not to a data disk
