853- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
854- when restoring or comparing, track progress by the archive# (N out of M),

936v1.13
937- fixed some compiler warnings in mondo-newt.c; rearranged some code
938- mondo-tarme now uses -M 16m -t 4k in its call to afio, to improve performance
939- fixed mondo-restore.c's mkreiserfs call; ditto, prep-me's mkreiserfs call
940- fixed mondo-restore.c's compare_a_biggiefile() subroutine, which would
941  generate erroneous error messages
942- fixed mondo-archive.c's restore_a_biggiefile() and restore_all_biggiefiles()
943  subroutines; I can't get them to break but others can, so I've streamlined
944  the code to make them easier to debug and in theory more stable too
945- fixed 'hack-fstab' to make sure that non-LABELed partitions are correctly
946  moved/changed, etc.
947- fixed the 'space in big filename' bug (I think)
948- make Interactive Mode sort the mountlist (by partition size) before creating
949  the dirs and mounting the partitions to them
950- fixed a slew of bugs related to Red Hat's LABEL= extensions
951- cleaned up mondo-restore.c and mondo-newt.c; replaced lots of arbitrary
952  limits and lengths with a small number of #define's
953- added some sample RAID0/1/5 raidtab (config) files to restore-scripts.tgz,
954  which will be restored to the ramdisk's /etc dir when the user boots from
955  the CD; this will only take up an extra 50K or so & will help any user
956  who is moving from non-RAID to RAID
957- changed FIFO size to 20MB
958- only use the VFAT kludge on /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1; otherwise, even if
959  the partition type is VFAT, do a regular mkfs.vfat
960- if mkfs.vfat doesn't exist, use mkfs.dos
961- only try to add 'LABEL=' to ext2 and ext3 partitions
962- moved a bunch of scripts from Mindi's rootfs.tgz to our restore-scripts.tgz
963- fixed bugs in mondo-restore.c, which would sometimes just sit there when
964  trying to compare or restore big files that were spread across CD's
965- Interactive Mode goes straight to 'mondo-restore --interactive' now, i.e.
966  the user doesn't have to choose Interactive once at boot and once within
967  mondo-restore
968- better post-run clean-up
969- improved mondo-restore.c's error-reporting a little bit
970- stablilo-me (the script) now supports Red Hat's "LABEL=" extensions to
971  /etc/fstab, via the script, 'label-partitions-as-necessary'
972- added a user-friendly mountlist editor to mondo-restore.c
973- added lots of sanity-checking to mountlist editor

979- changed cdrecord's FIFO size to 8MB

981- amended the .spec file to be saner when building RPM's
982- archives are named '.afio.bz2' instead of '.tar.bz2'
983- mondo-archive, mondo-tarme, mondo-restore.c and the DEPRECATED scripts have
984  been amended accordingly
985- should be able to create up to 20 CD-R's per backup set now
986- moved a line within prep-me that was in the wrong place (thanks, Fran Boon!)
987- runs 'df -m' and saves it to a text file 'df.txt' on the CD
988- added 10-second delay before mondo-restore's Nuke Mode, to let the user abort
989- really fixed the '/mnt/RESTORING/tmp' permissions bug (thanks, Ang Tan!)
990- sometimes, bash gets all screwed up & won't let the user type 'continue' when
991  Mondo asks them to; if that happens, Mondo will detect it & use a different
992  kind of mondo-askme; the new mondo-askme will check every 10 minutes for a
993  blank CD; if it's there, then the burn continues
994- abort if isodir or scratchdir is a softlink
995- replaced mondo-askme with a good shell script, to work around flaws in
996  bash and/or kernel (don't know which)
997- added a failsafe kernel to Mindi, which means you don't have to make sure
998  your kernel is suitable for a boot disk; you can just use Mindi's instead
999- make+chop filelist _after_ calling Mindi
1000- updated the FAQ

1009- updated the FAQ, to remind users that they can boot from floppy images if
1010  their kernel does not have the right support of CD-ROM's, filesystems, etc.
1011- erroneous error-reporting by /mondo/biggify-me; fixed (David Granz)
1012- don't estimate the time remaining unless >20 sets processed already
1013- default set size (uncompressed) is now 8MB (was 12MB); when 8MB, seems
1014  to run more smoothly & a little quicker, too, at restore-time
1015- chmod 1777 /mnt/RESTORING/tmp after restoring/creating /tmp
1016- dropped mondo-askme.c; using regular 'read' instead
1017- mondo-restore.c uses newt instead of ncurses; much prettier that way
1018- cdrecord now uses a 16MB FIFO buffer (was 8MB)
1019- fixed floating point error in mondo-restore (when showing progress)
1020- when mondo-restore is called without params (e.g. by Interactive Mode), it
1021  lets the user choose between nuke, interactive or compare (or abort)

1050- cosmetic changes to mondo-restore.c's screen output
1051- RAID-related enhancements to mondo-restore.c
1052  - RAID bkp/restore appears to be stable
1053  - it is possible to move from non-RAID to RAID by backing up, wiping,
1054    creating /etc/raidtab, modifying /tmp/mountlist.txt and then restoring
1055  - mondo-restore.c works well
1056  - the only weakness is that the kernel's messages are written to the
1057    current console, not to a separate console... HELP? :-)
1058- updated README (esp. FAQ) and TODO
1059- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine
1060- mondo-1.07.spec and install.sh compile every C program with -lncurses, just
1061  in case some programs (besides mondo-restore.c) need the NCURSES library

1099- catch errors in MakeIsoFS, if any
1100- added 'mondo-restore.c'
1101    - C program, to replace the old restore scripts
1102    - Mindi will incorporate it in the data disks, if it can find Mondo
1103        - Mindi will also incorporate the old restore scripts (from Mondo)
1104          just in case the new C program doesn't work
1105    - calls the script, 'stablilo-me' to run LILO if desired

1107  to live in Mindi; now, Mindi grabs them from here if necessary

1119  go into an infinite loop for no reason; hopefully, outsourcing to C will help
1120- when slicing, indicate progress ("N slices...")
1121- when told to '--burn-cds', Mondo pipes mkisofs's output to cdrecord, instead
1122  of saving the ISO file to disk first; this change will save time and space

1134- thanks to recent changes to Mindi, Mondo is now compatible with the
1135  filesystem formats JFS, ext3, ReiserFS, XFS and ext2 (if your own kernel is)
1136- CDs [2-N] do not have boot floppy images on them; only CD#1 does (although
1137  CDs [2-N] do have the El Torito boot image, just in case...)
1138- modified the --burn-cds switch; now it takes 3rd param, 'cdrw' (optional) to
1139  let you wipe and rewrite CDRWs instead of wasting CDRs ;-)
1140- removed that PID thing; doesn't work; please don't run Mondo twice at once :)
1141- removed that "filenames contain '|'" error & associated problems
1142- got rid of 'UNSAFE' warning/shortcut
1143- removed --xerox-dev, --include-tarball, --skip-tildes, --ide-opt, --use-bzip2
1144- mondo-archive doesn't make/hack/edit mountlist anymore; that's Mindi's job
1145- uses Mindi Linux to make boot disks & data disks based on your distro
1146- boot&data stuff goes in $scratchdir/images now
1147- bzip2 is used by default to compress archives
1148- don't make MD5 checksums if verify_level==0
1149- when archiving, make N.tar.bz2 and cklist.txt (tarball+checksums) in parallel
1150- at end of mondo-archive, remove scratchdir and TMP completely IF they were
1151  created by Mondo (e.g. /home/mondo.scratch or /home/tmp.mondo.12345)
1152- fill CD/image up to 1MB less than its max size; was being filled up to about
