27So more distros supported and built.<br>
28I've used them for a restore of a failed server recently (PXE mode) so
29they should be working correctly for most of the cases (including now
30people not using RPMs)

32I'll off till begining of next year, so I wish you all the best for this
33new year 2006 coming, and hope you'll find mondorescue as useful as

166It turned out that mindi 1.0.8-1 had bugs at least on RHEL 4 and also I wanted a new function for PXE deployment (change of NIC), so here are mondo 2.0.8-2 / mindi 1 is done generally (x.y.z)

184Other distributions will follow asap (should be able to produce soon
185redhat 7.3, fedora core 4, and only after rhel3/4 and sles9) due to the
186change in the virtual machines I have to do (now using qemu + more tools
187to generate RPMs)
188</p>
189
190<p>
191The focus on this version has been more around the new website and
192documentation, and a bit less on code. So some persistant bugs are still
193not corrected (some dvd burning issues and dm/lvm2 support mainly) and
194will be hopefully in 2.0.8.
