    561 - when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*'
    562   (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
    563 - if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them
    564   intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)
    565 - cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-ini; the former now controls
    566   initialization of hardware, drivers, tools, etc. and the latter
    567   runs mondo-restore if it exists
     489- when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*' (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
     490- if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)

    577 - if called by Mondo then pass the name & device of the user's boot
    578   loader to the restore phase, by copying BOOTLOADER.* to the ramdisk
    579 - if loading from floppies then try to mount CD-ROM a 2nd time after
    580   extracting files from data floppies, just in case user is a CD user
    581   who couldn't get their CD-ROM drive to work initially
     500- if called by Mondo then pass the name & device of the user's boot loader to the restore phase, by copying BOOTLOADER.* to the ramdisk

     507- added '-f-' to the end of most tar commands, to see if it fixes a bug in some obscure Debian distros
    590508- added network-related dependencies to deplist.txt
    591 - if called by Mondo then don't write floppy images to disks; let
    592   Mondo do that: less irritating for user
    593 - if called by Mondo then do some clever tricks to add mondo-restore
    594   and its dependencies (mondo-restore is now a dynamic executable)
     509- if called by Mondo then don't write floppy images to disks; let Mondo do that: less irritating for user

    596512
     
    599515- cosmetic changes and minor bugfixes
    600516- excluded lilo.conf and lilo from deplist.txt; use user's copy instead

    602   Mindi will terminate in a sane manner with a sane error message
     517- if your fstab mentions a RAID partition but your raidtab doesn't then Mindi will terminate in a sane manner with a sane error message

    631   and RAID modules
     541- restructured the calls in /sbin/post-init that reinitialize the LVM and RAID modules
    632542- if mkfs.ext2 is not in PATH then abort
    633 - Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time
    634   (Jean-David Marrow)
     543- Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time (Jean-David Marrow)
    635544- Red Hat 7.2 uses a weird /etc/issue.net; I've worked around it...
    636545- tested with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2
     
    640549- restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
    641550- re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
    642 - analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted
    643   the module anyway

    644552
    645553v0.43 (2001-10-21)
    646554- made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
    647 - if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred
    648   while I was trying to make an ISO image'
    649 - when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is
    650   indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
    651 - make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are
    652   backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
    653 - fixed a silly bug that stopped Mindi from handling its own modules
    654   properly; only affects newbie users with broken kernels (i.e. the
    655   very people that Mindi's failsafe kernel was meant to help!)
     555- if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred while I was trying to make an ISO image'

    656559- added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
    657 - added Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch; if user uses the switch
    658   (i.e. '--cd-recovery yes') then the CD will boot to a screen that
    659   pauses until the user types RESTORE; then, it will enter Nuke Mode
     560- added Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch; if user uses the switch (i.e. '--cd-recovery yes') then the CD will boot to a screen that pauses until the user types RESTORE; then, it will enter Nuke Mode
    660561- added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
    661 - failsafe kernel is now 2.4.12 with XFS, JFS and lots of SCSI modules;
    662   the addition of XFS and extensive SCSI support will increase the
    663   size of Mindi's RPM / tarball significantly but I think it's worth it
    664 - at boot-time, find out whether there are any RAID partitions; and if
    665   there are, whether they are 'started' yet; if not, run raidstart to
    666   start them at boot-time, before user can try to mount anything
    667 - Mindi's failsafe kernel & modules are handled more elegantly now;
    668   if you have raid1.o, scsi.o, etc. loaded at backup-time then Mindi
    669   finds its corresponding modules in its tarball of failsafe modules
    670   and stores them so that at boot-time you can do SCSI, RAID, etc.

    672566
     
    674568- make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
    675569- added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
    676 - changed the slice size from 20KB to 64KB; speeds up Mindi by 25%
    677   and doesn't have any negative side-effects (...that I can see)
    678 - when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine
    679   a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
    680 - when asking user to send me a copy of their log file, point out
    681   that it may contain info which they do not want me to see but that
    682   they are SOL unless I can actually see their log file
    683 - fixed a silly bug that would crop up when a Linux-Mandrake 8.1 user
    684   would use a devfs-enabled kernel and RAID partitions at the same time
     570- changed the slice size from 20KB to 64KB; speeds up Mindi by 25% and doesn't have any negative side-effects (...that I can see)

     573- fixed a silly bug that would crop up when a Linux-Mandrake 8.1 user would use a devfs-enabled kernel and RAID partitions at the same time
    685574- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
    686575- data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
    687576- if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
    688 - fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other
    689   at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
     577- fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
    690578- enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
    691 - disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if
    692   s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
    693 - tested successfully with the following distros
    694   - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel
    695   - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel
     579- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
     580- tested successfully with the following distros - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel
    696581- better at guessing the size of swap partition
    697 - drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants
    698   to use the minix filesystem
    699 - don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be
    700   selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
    701 - if the user has two glibc libraries - one in /lib and one in
    702   /lib/i686 - then Mindi will re-jig the softlinks so that only the
    703   version in /lib is backed up, to save space on the data disks
    704 - major rewrite of the code that copies the tools and libraries from
    705   the data disks; prettier, faster and more stable (and did I mention
    706   how kind it is to your hard-working hands?)
     582- drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants to use the minix filesystem

    707586- better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
    708 - new boot-time script, 'bug-me', copies user's logs to a floppy and
    709   tells him/her to e-mail them to me if mondo-restore aborts
    710 - ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels
    711   are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
    712 - no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded
    713   at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
     587- new boot-time script, 'bug-me', copies user's logs to a floppy and tells him/her to e-mail them to me if mondo-restore aborts
     588- ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
     589- no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
    714590- removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
    715591- LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
    716 - included a tarball of 'sane' /dev/loop* nodes which will be extracted
    717   and added to the boot disk; this helps maintain Mindi's backward-
    718   compatibility with non-devfs kernels and distros
    719 - when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first
    720   if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
    721 - no longer copies all loaded modules to the 2.88 MB El Torito bootable
    722   floppy image; instead, it copies FLOPPY_MODS to the 1.72 MB image,
    723   CDROM_MODS to the 2.88 MB image, and _all_ modules that were loaded
    724   at backup-time to the data disks
    725     - supports tape streamers, in conjunction with Mondo

    726595- uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
    727 - if Mondo is backing up to tape streamer then write the tape's size to
    728   /tmp/TAPESIZE and the drive's device to /tmp/TAPEDEV-LIVES-HERE on
    729   the ramdisk
    730 - floppy disk modules (ide-floppy.o and floppy.o) now are copied
    731   to the ramdisk, whether the user's kernel or the failsafe kernel
    732   is being used
     596- if Mondo is backing up to tape streamer then write the tape's size to /tmp/TAPESIZE and the drive's device to /tmp/TAPEDEV-LIVES-HERE on the ramdisk
     597- floppy disk modules (ide-floppy.o and floppy.o) now are copied to the ramdisk, whether the user's kernel or the failsafe kernel is being used
    733598
    734599v0.41 (2001-09-28)

    737602- added umount to deplist again
    738 - improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM
    739   drive and floppy disk drives)
     603- improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM drive and floppy disk drives)
    740604- don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
    741 - restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from
    742   deplist but also from busybox)
     605- restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from deplist but also from busybox)
    743606- fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
    744607- experimental LVM support
    745608- added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
    746609- able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
    747 - added the LVM executables (listed in the lvm-0.xx-i386.rpm) to
    748   deplist.txt; they won't be added unless you have them and you won't
     610- added the LVM executables (listed in the lvm-0.xx-i386.rpm) to deplist.txt; they won't be added unless you have them and you won't
    749611      have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
    750612- added date and sync to deplist again
    751613- when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
    752 - amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1
    753   spaces between cols
    754   checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
    755 - incorporated busybox 0.60-1; now, Mindi is faster at run-time and
    756   smaller at boot-time; you can fit a typical system onto 3 floppies;
    757   also, a kernel up to 1MB in size (approx.) can now be accommodated
     614- amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between cols checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
     615- incorporated busybox 0.60-1; now, Mindi is faster at run-time and smaller at boot-time; you can fit a typical system onto 3 floppies; also, a kernel up to 1MB in size (approx.) can now be accommodated
    758616- supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
    759 - Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies
    760   _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
    761 - thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be
    762   able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
     617- Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
     618- thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
    763619- boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
    764620- exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
    765621- exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
    766 - removed A LOT of files from deplist.txt's dependency list; they are
    767   listed in deplist.removed, in case you want to put them back :-)
    768 - excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you
    769   add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]

     625- strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip comments from /etc/termcap
    773626
    774627v0.40 (2001-09-16)
    775 - if you use a softlink to your CD dev, e.g. /dev/cdrecorder->scd0,
    776   then Mindi should handle it properly now (i.e. not bomb out)
    777 - if you have a large kernel & lots of modules loaded, Mindi will only
    778       copy as many modules to the ramdisk as will _fit_ on a ramdisk that
    779   will have to go alongside your kernel on a 2.88MB floppy disk
     628- if you use a softlink to your CD dev, e.g. /dev/cdrecorder->scd0, then Mindi should handle it properly now (i.e. not bomb out)
     629- if you have a large kernel & lots of modules loaded, Mindi will only copy as many modules to the ramdisk as will _fit_ on a ramdisk that will have to go alongside your kernel on a 2.88MB floppy disk
    780630- if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
    781 - turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure
    782   out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
     631- turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
    783632- changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
    784633- Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
    785634- gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
    786 - working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible
    787   with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
    788 - dropped the '-c' option from LILO call
    789     - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
    790 - slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it
    791   try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
    792 - excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script
    793   because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
    794 - added code to copy your fstab, lilo.conf, etc. to a tarball which, in
    795   the event of an error, Mindi will ask the user to e-mail me
     635- working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible with a wider range of insane distros and kernels

    797641v0.39 (2001-09-08)
    798 - plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX
    799   softlinks are still there :-)
    800 - if your swap partition isn't mounted, Mindi will decide that it is
    801       125MB; it used to abort but now it just warns & makes a good guess
     642- plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX softlinks are still there :-)
     643- if your swap partition isn't mounted, Mindi will decide that it is 125MB; it used to abort but now it just warns & makes a good guess
    802644- testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
    803645- only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
    804646- copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
    805647- better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
    806 - semi-forces isofs and ide-cd (not isofs.o and ide-cd.o); the former
    807   will be more compatible with stock kernels - e.g. Red Hat, Mandrake;
    808   also added vfat, fat & a few other modules to the list of 'foced'.
    809 - removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't
    810   like it very much)
     648- semi-forces isofs and ide-cd (not isofs.o and ide-cd.o); the former will be more compatible with stock kernels - e.g. Red Hat, Mandrake; also added vfat, fat & a few other modules to the list of 'foced'.

    813652- do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
    814 - amend format-and-kludge-vfat; now, it will not abort if it cannot
    815   find its entry in mountlist; it doesn't need to find the entry
    816   anyway, except to check that the kludge works (which it does)
    817 - if user chooses to use Mindi's failsafe 2.4.9 kernel, Mindi will load
    818   Mindi's versions of user's modules at boot-time
     653- amend format-and-kludge-vfat; now, it will not abort if it cannot find its entry in mountlist; it doesn't need to find the entry anyway, except to check that the kludge works (which it does)
     654- if user chooses to use Mindi's failsafe 2.4.9 kernel, Mindi will load Mindi's versions of user's modules at boot-time

    820656- added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
    821 - if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive
    822   instead of just mondo-restore
     657- if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive instead of just mondo-restore
    823658- replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
    824659- improved the post-run clean-up
    825 - force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances
    826   Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
    827 - Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running
    828   mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
     660- force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
     661- Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
    829662- /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
    830 - disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything
    831   anyway & were probably confusing some users)
    832 - removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes
    833   care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
     663- disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything anyway & were probably confusing some users)
     664- removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
    834665- included a copy of mondo-manual.html

     666- only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course); otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
    837667- use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
    838668- moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz

    853 - that whole loop-mount/extract tgz to ramdisk thing --- if it fails,
    854   abort, don't try to continue; also, ask if loopfs is supported by
    855   kernel (if not, that might explain the error)
    856 - in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search
    857   /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
    858 - run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to
    859   /tmp/mondo-restore.log
    860 - default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the
    861   disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
    862 - if CDROM can't find itself (long story, re: El Torito) then the
    863   script will say, "Your kernel is b0rken." This will reduce the
    864   number of erroneous error reports that I receive from users
     680- that whole loop-mount/extract tgz to ramdisk thing --- if it fails, abort, don't try to continue; also, ask if loopfs is supported by kernel (if not, that might explain the error)

    854 - working on stablilo-me, hack-lilo and hack-fstab to make sure they work
    855   with the new, busybox-based Mindi v0.41

    867   the live filesystem, just for 'belt and braces' emotional security
     732- reimplemented '--verify' switch; now, user can verify ISO's or CD's against the live filesystem, just for 'belt and braces' emotional security
    868733- improved the error-reporting at restore-time (if tarball cannot be accessed)

    900   generate erroneous error messages
    901 - fixed mondo-archive.c's restore_a_biggiefile() and restore_all_biggiefiles()
    902   subroutines; I can't get them to break but others can, so I've streamlined

    923   trying to compare or restore big files that were spread across CD's
    924 - Interactive Mode goes straight to 'mondo-restore --interactive' now, i.e.
    925   the user doesn't have to choose Interactive once at boot and once within
    926   mondo-restore
     770- fixed bugs in mondo-restore.c, which would sometimes just sit there when trying to compare or restore big files that were spread across CD's

    946 - sometimes, bash gets all screwed up & won't let the user type 'continue' when
    947   Mondo asks them to; if that happens, Mondo will detect it & use a different
    948   kind of mondo-askme; the new mondo-askme will check every 10 minutes for a
    949   blank CD; if it's there, then the burn continues

    952   bash and/or kernel (don't know which)
    953 - added a failsafe kernel to Mindi, which means you don't have to make sure
    954   your kernel is suitable for a boot disk; you can just use Mindi's instead

    965802- don't estimate the time remaining unless >20 sets processed already
    966 - default set size (uncompressed) is now 8MB (was 12MB); when 8MB, seems
    967   to run more smoothly & a little quicker, too, at restore-time

    994827- cosmetic changes to mondo-restore.c's screen output
    995 - RAID-related enhancements to mondo-restore.c
    996   - RAID bkp/restore appears to be stable
    997   - it is possible to move from non-RAID to RAID by backing up, wiping,
    998     creating /etc/raidtab, modifying /tmp/mountlist.txt and then restoring
    999   - mondo-restore.c works well
    1000   - the only weakness is that the kernel's messages are written to the
    1001     current console, not to a separate console... HELP? :-)

    1002829- updated README (esp. FAQ) and TODO
    1003830- tested with Linux 2.4.7; works fine

    1012 - mondo-restore.c creates dummy partitions if the user starts the official
    1013   etc/fstab table at /dev/hda7 or something; so, partitioning should work,
    1014   even if the mountlist has some gaps
     838- mondo-restore.c creates dummy partitions if the user starts the official etc/fstab table at /dev/hda7 or something; so, partitioning should work, even if the mountlist has some gaps

    1036           just in case the new C program doesn't work
     858    - Mindi will incorporate it in the data disks, if it can find Mondo - Mindi will also incorporate the old restore scripts (from Mondo) just in case the new C program doesn't work
    1037859    - calls the script, 'stablilo-me' to run LILO if desired
    1038 - added 'restore-scripts.tgz', which contains the /mondo scripts that used
    1039   to live in Mindi; now, Mindi grabs them from here if necessary

    1046866- retract the CD tray after asking user to enter 'continue' (PauseAndAskForCDR)
    1047 - uses C program instead of bash loop for PauseAndAskForCDR; some bash versions

     867- uses C program instead of bash loop for PauseAndAskForCDR; some bash versions go into an infinite loop for no reason; hopefully, outsourcing to C will help
    1049868- when slicing, indicate progress ("N slices...")
    1050 - when told to '--burn-cds', Mondo pipes mkisofs's output to cdrecord, instead
    1051   of saving the ISO file to disk first; this change will save time and space
    1052   (not in the Star Trek sense, however *smile*)
     869- when told to '--burn-cds', Mondo pipes mkisofs's output to cdrecord, instead of saving the ISO file to disk first; this change will save time and space (not in the Star Trek sense, however *smile*)

    1062   filesystem formats JFS, ext3, ReiserFS, XFS and ext2 (if your own kernel is)
    1063 - CDs [2-N] do not have boot floppy images on them; only CD#1 does (although
    1064   CDs [2-N] do have the El Torito boot image, just in case...)
    1065 - modified the --burn-cds switch; now it takes 3rd param, 'cdrw' (optional) to
    1066   let you wipe and rewrite CDRWs instead of wasting CDRs ;-)

    1078   created by Mondo (e.g. /home/mondo.scratch or /home/tmp.mondo.12345)
    1079 - fill CD/image up to 1MB less than its max size; was being filled up to about
    1080   8MB less than its max size, which wasted 8-10MB of storage space per disk
     891- at end of mondo-archive, remove scratchdir and TMP completely IF they were created by Mondo (e.g. /home/mondo.scratch or /home/tmp.mondo.12345)

    1142 - auto-archive, mondo-archive and mondo-tarme updated to make them more
    1143   friendly towards mult-disk sets
     936- auto-archive, mondo-archive and mondo-tarme updated to make them more friendly towards mult-disk sets
    1144937- if multiple CDRW drives, user is asked which mondo-archive should use

    1146939v0.971 (2000-06-14)
    1147940- auto-archive now passes CD size to mondo-archive
    1148 - mondo-tarme, in conjunction with auto-archive, now handles CDRW boot/burn
    1149   sharing much better than before

    1153945- lots of silly bugs & overhead problems fixed; 2nd floppy closer to working
    1154946- restore scripts all log to /var/log/mondo-restore.log
    1155 - auto-archive:-
    1156     - offers Low, Medium or High compression
    1157     - no longer needs a spare hard drive for scratch space; uses loopfs on
    1158       existing hard drive (if possible) instead
    1159     - handles weird (multi-CDROM) PCs more gracefully now
    1160     - handles PCs with CDRW but without CDROM more gracefully now
    1161     - deletes each ISO after burning it to a CD-R (if it _is_ burning them)
    1162     - asks if PC is old & crappy; if it is, IDE optimizations are disabled
    1163       at backup-time and restore-time
    1164     - lets user use CDRW for booting _and_ burning, thanks to reroute-softlinks
     947- auto-archive:- - offers Low, Medium or High compression - no longer needs a spare hard drive for scratch space; uses loopfs on existing hard drive (if possible) instead - handles weird (multi-CDROM) PCs more gracefully now - handles PCs with CDRW but without CDROM more gracefully now - deletes each ISO after burning it to a CD-R (if it _is_ burning them) - asks if PC is old & crappy; if it is, IDE optimizations are disabled at backup-time and restore-time - lets user use CDRW for booting _and_ burning, thanks to reroute-softlinks
    1165948- selective restore is finally fixed
    1166949- nicer help screens on boot floppy

    1185   at restore-time before CD is accessed
     967- all currently-loaded modules are backed up to custom hboot.img & installed at restore-time before CD is accessed
    1186968- '--burn-cd <speed>' switch added
    1187 - '--no-opt' switch added; use it in the call to mondo-archive if you don't
    1188   want IDE optimization when restoring
     969- '--no-opt' switch added; use it in the call to mondo-archive if you don't want IDE optimization when restoring
    1189970- lots of work done on auto-archive
    1190971- mondo-extras-1.5 created; excludes mondo-zfile but includes hlib.tar.bz2

    1192973- slice* deleted (WipeArchives); was 'slices*' (bug!)
    1193 - restore scripts all use 'lastbit-me' to find the 'X' part of '/dev/X' device;
    1194   this will make it easier to port Mondo to kernel 2.4.x
    1195 - I cannot make SCSI-based CDROMs boot from Mondo CDs properly... but SCSI
    1196   hard drives and ZIP drives should be handled ok from now on
    1197 - with a little coaxing, Mondo will backup Windows-only PCs (as well as
    1198   Lin/Win and Linux-only PCs)

    12251003- logfile now saved at /var/log/mondo-archive.log (not `pwd`/mondo-archive.log)
    1226 - pid registered/checked _after_ command line processed... so you can do --help
    1227   without being shouted at ;)
     1004- pid registered/checked _after_ command line processed... so you can do --help without being shouted at ;)
    12281005- restore-me broken into 2 scripts: untar-me and biggify-me

     1007- bzip2 decompression should work again ;) ... a missing '-Z' was added to the afio call, and the usr/lib/libbz* libraries are now included on CD ISOs
    12321008- fixed hack-lilo to ignore blank lines
    1233 - really ugly boot kludge has been implemented, using embleer files
    1234   to make newly-formatted VFAT partitions bootable
