    519     - reassembly of tools+libraries is more reliable now
    520     - streamlined deplist.txt
    521     - give user their localized keyboard layout at boot-time
    522     - fix some cosmetic bugs
    523 
    524 v0.50-4 (2011-12-19)
    525     - log Mindi's version# in the event of a fatal error
    526     - make Mindi's boot-time output more esthetically pleasing
    527     - if filesystem is type 'image', according to Mondo, then in filelist
    528       its partition type will be listed as the hexadecimal string (e.g.
    529           'b', '83', etc.) and the partition mountpoint will be 'image'
     462- removed libm.* from rootfs.tgz
     463- replaced sh with busybox's ash
     464- upgraded busybox to 0.60-2; pared it down, too
     465- include tape-related modules on boot disk, if backing up to tape
     466- creates a tape-friendly tarball containing tools+modules
     467- reassembly of tools+libraries is more reliable now
     468- streamlined deplist.txt
     469- give user their localized keyboard layout at boot-time
     470- fix some cosmetic bugs

    530476
    531477v0.50-2 (2001-12-15)
    532     - support for newer features in Mondo v1.3x
    533 
    534 v0.50-1
    535     - correctly lists RAID constituent partitions in mountlist
    536     - breaks compatibility with Mondo v1.2x
    537     - if user's fstab has weird line(s) then ignore; don't abort
    538     - working on CDROM_MODS, trying to make it work on Stewart Charnell's
    539       hardware setup
    540     - cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-init a bit
    541 
    542 v0.48-2
    543     - when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*'
    544       (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
    545     - if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them
    546       intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)
    547     - cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-ini; the former now controls
    548       initialization of hardware, drivers, tools, etc. and the latter
    549       runs mondo-restore if it exists
    550     - better detection of and compatibility with SCSI CD-ROM drives
    551     - chopsize is now 64KB; was 128KB
    552     - cleaned up mindi's logging
    553 
    554 v0.48-1
    555     - better logging of find-and-mount-cdrom's progress (to
    556           /tmp/mondo-restore.log)
    557     - somehow, lilo was re-enabled in deplist.txt; DISABLED (again *g*)
    558     - added 'linear' to the list of modules Mindi always backs up
    559     - if called by Mondo then pass the name & device of the user's boot
    560           loader to the restore phase, by copying BOOTLOADER.* to the ramdisk
    561     - if loading from floppies then try to mount CD-ROM a 2nd time after
    562       extracting files from data floppies, just in case user is a CD user
    563       who couldn't get their CD-ROM drive to work initially
    564     - added fix to make sure /root/images/mindi is created (Charlie Root)
    565     - aware of 'iso' boot mode, for future expansion
    566 
    567 v0.47
    568     - added /dev/cdrom/cdrom[1-4] to the devices automatically excluded
    569       from mountlist.txt
    570     - added '-f-' to the end of most tar commands, to see if it fixes a
    571       bug in some obscure Debian distros
    572     - added network-related dependencies to deplist.txt
    573     - if called by Mondo then don't write floppy images to disks; let
    574       Mondo do that: less irritating for user
    575     - if called by Mondo then do some clever tricks to add mondo-restore
    576       and its dependencies (mondo-restore is now a dynamic executable)
    577     - finally gotten klogd to squelch echoing of kernel msgs to console
    578 
    579 v0.46
    580     - finally fixed that 'lib/modules/2.4.12-xfs not found' bug! :-D
    581     - cosmetic changes and minor bugfixes
    582     - excluded lilo.conf and lilo from deplist.txt; use user's copy instead
    583     - if your fstab mentions a RAID partition but your raidtab doesn't then
    584       Mindi will terminate in a sane manner with a sane error message
    585     - fixed a bug in bug-me (heh, how ironic)
    586     - include and run (sys)klogd to try to pipe kernel msgs to logfile
    587     - call hdparm to speed up access to CD-ROM drive
    588 
    589 v0.45
    590     - disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
    591     - include /etc/fstab in logfile
    592     - removed lzop.* from aux-tools; should come from user's distro anyway
    593     - tweaked data disk size and data disk formatting command
    594     - make ISO bootable image (as well as floppies) when backing up to tape
    595     - copy boot images (floppy + CD) from temp dir to /root/images/mindi
    596       after making them, just in case the user wants them later
    597     - added md5sum to deplist.txt
    598     - added pico->vi softlink to ramdisk
    599     - in the ramdisk's /etc/bashrc, added /usr/local/bin and
    600           /usr/local/sbin to the PATH= command
    601     - call insert-all-modules as background task; pause 3 seconds after
    602       calling it, before proceeding <--- /sbin/init
    603     - call to devfs has been moved to before call to post-init
    604     - added 'md5sum -> busybox' softlink
    605     - Mindi now uses busybox's printf, md5sum, mount, umount, vi
    606       ...NB: I said, 'vi' :-) Now you have an editor again! :-)
    607     - added lilo.real to deplist.txt, to allow for Debian's evil new distro
    608     - added lzop to deplist.txt
    609     - no longer including lzop in Mindi's tarball / RPM
    610     - improved Mindi's error-reporting a little bit
    611     - changed deplist.txt's /etc/* to just *
    612     - restructured the calls in /sbin/post-init that reinitialize the LVM
    613       and RAID modules
    614     - if mkfs.ext2 is not in PATH then abort
    615     - Mindi uses a 'filename cache' to speed itself up at run-time
    616       (Jean-David Marrow)
    617     - Red Hat 7.2 uses a weird /etc/issue.net; I've worked around it...
    618     - tested with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 and Red Hat 7.2
    619 
    620 v0.44
    621     - at boot-time, activate LV's if they exist
    622     - restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
    623     - re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
    624     - analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted
    625       the module anyway
    626 
    627 v0.43
    628     - made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
    629     - if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred
    630       while I was trying to make an ISO image'
    631     - when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is
    632       indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
    633     - make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are
    634       backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
    635     - fixed a silly bug that stopped Mindi from handling its own modules
    636       properly; only affects newbie users with broken kernels (i.e. the
    637       very people that Mindi's failsafe kernel was meant to help!)
    638     - added lzop (Marcus Oberhumer's file compressor) to aux-tools.tgz
    639     - added Bruno Cornec's "--cd-recovery" patch; if user uses the switch
    640       (i.e. '--cd-recovery yes') then the CD will boot to a screen that
    641       pauses until the user types RESTORE; then, it will enter Nuke Mode
    642     - added Stephan Zegherd's "superformat" patch
    643     - failsafe kernel is now 2.4.12 with XFS, JFS and lots of SCSI modules;
    644       the addition of XFS and extensive SCSI support will increase the
    645       size of Mindi's RPM / tarball significantly but I think it's worth it
    646     - at boot-time, find out whether there are any RAID partitions; and if
    647       there are, whether they are 'started' yet; if not, run raidstart to
    648       start them at boot-time, before user can try to mount anything
    649     - Mindi's failsafe kernel & modules are handled more elegantly now;
    650       if you have raid1.o, scsi.o, etc. loaded at backup-time then Mindi
    651       finds its corresponding modules in its tarball of failsafe modules
    652       and stores them so that at boot-time you can do SCSI, RAID, etc.
    653     - removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
    654 
    655 v0.42
    656     - make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
    657     - added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
    658     - changed the slice size from 20KB to 64KB; speeds up Mindi by 25%
    659       and doesn't have any negative side-effects (...that I can see)
    660     - when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine
    661       a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
    662     - when asking user to send me a copy of their log file, point out
    663       that it may contain info which they do not want me to see but that
    664       they are SOL unless I can actually see their log file
    665     - fixed a silly bug that would crop up when a Linux-Mandrake 8.1 user
    666       would use a devfs-enabled kernel and RAID partitions at the same time
    667     - plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
    668     - data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
    669     - if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
    670     - fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other
    671           at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
    672     - enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
    673     - disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if
    674       s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
    675     - tested successfully with the following distros
    676       - Linux-Mandrake 8.1 and its 2.4.8, devfs-enabled stock kernel
    677       - Red Hat 7.1 and its 2.4.2 stock kernel
    678     - better at guessing the size of swap partition
    679     - drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants
    680           to use the minix filesystem
    681     - don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be
    682       selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
    683     - if the user has two glibc libraries - one in /lib and one in
    684       /lib/i686 - then Mindi will re-jig the softlinks so that only the
    685       version in /lib is backed up, to save space on the data disks
    686     - major rewrite of the code that copies the tools and libraries from
    687       the data disks; prettier, faster and more stable (and did I mention
    688       how kind it is to your hard-working hands?)
    689     - better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
    690     - new boot-time script, 'bug-me', copies user's logs to a floppy and
    691           tells him/her to e-mail them to me if mondo-restore aborts
    692     - ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels
    693       are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
    694     - no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded
    695           at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
    696     - removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
    697     - LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
    698     - included a tarball of 'sane' /dev/loop* nodes which will be extracted
    699           and added to the boot disk; this helps maintain Mindi's backward-
    700           compatibility with non-devfs kernels and distros
    701     - when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first
    702           if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
    703     - no longer copies all loaded modules to the 2.88 MB El Torito bootable
    704       floppy image; instead, it copies FLOPPY_MODS to the 1.72 MB image,
    705           CDROM_MODS to the 2.88 MB image, and _all_ modules that were loaded
    706           at backup-time to the data disks
    707         - supports tape streamers, in conjunction with Mondo
    708     - uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
    709     - if Mondo is backing up to tape streamer then write the tape's size to
    710           /tmp/TAPESIZE and the drive's device to /tmp/TAPEDEV-LIVES-HERE on
    711           the ramdisk
    712     - floppy disk modules (ide-floppy.o and floppy.o) now are copied
    713           to the ramdisk, whether the user's kernel or the failsafe kernel
    714           is being used
    715 
    716 v0.41
    717     - excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
    718     - updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
    719     - added umount to deplist again
    720     - improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM
    721           drive and floppy disk drives)
    722     - don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
    723     - restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from
    724           deplist but also from busybox)
    725     - fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
    726         - experimental LVM support
    727     - added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
    728     - able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
    729     - added the LVM executables (listed in the lvm-0.xx-i386.rpm) to
    730       deplist.txt; they won't be added unless you have them and you won't
     478- support for newer features in Mondo v1.3x
     479
     480v0.50-1 (2001-12-14)
     481- correctly lists RAID constituent partitions in mountlist
     482- breaks compatibility with Mondo v1.2x
     483- if user's fstab has weird line(s) then ignore; don't abort
     484- working on CDROM_MODS, trying to make it work on Stewart Charnell's hardware setup
     485- cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-init a bit
     486
     487v0.48-2 (2001-12-09)
     488- when insmod'g modules from ramdisk's root dir, use 'ls /*.o*' (was 'ls /*.*') to find them
     489- if RAID controller(s) are detected then pause for 10s to let them intialize by themselves (some 3ware RAID controllers require this)
     490- cleaned up /sbin/init and /sbin/post-ini; the former now controls initialization of hardware, drivers, tools, etc. and the latter runs mondo-restore if it exists
     491- better detection of and compatibility with SCSI CD-ROM drives
     492- chopsize is now 64KB; was 128KB
     493- cleaned up mindi's logging
     494

     496- better logging of find-and-mount-cdrom's progress (to /tmp/mondo-restore.log)
     497- somehow, lilo was re-enabled in deplist.txt; DISABLED (again *g*)
     498- added 'linear' to the list of modules Mindi always backs up
     499- 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
     500- if loading from floppies then try to mount CD-ROM a 2nd time after extracting files from data floppies, just in case user is a CD user who couldn't get their CD-ROM drive to work initially
     501- added fix to make sure /root/images/mindi is created (Charlie Root)

     503
     504v0.47 (2001-12-04)
     505- added /dev/cdrom/cdrom[1-4] to the devices automatically excluded from mountlist.txt
     506- added '-f-' to the end of most tar commands, to see if it fixes a bug in some obscure Debian distros
     507- added network-related dependencies to deplist.txt

     513- finally fixed that 'lib/modules/2.4.12-xfs not found' bug! :-D
     514- cosmetic changes and minor bugfixes
     515- excluded lilo.conf and lilo from deplist.txt; use user's copy instead

     527- copy boot images (floppy + CD) from temp dir to /root/images/mindi after making them, just in case the user wants them later
     528- added md5sum to deplist.txt
     529- added pico->vi softlink to ramdisk
     530- in the ramdisk's /etc/bashrc, added /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin to the PATH= command

     548- restructured deplist.txt a bit (cosmetic change)
     549- re-enabled fsck.* in deplist.txt
     550- analyze-my-lvm fails gracefully if you're not using LVM but inserted the module anyway
     551
     552v0.43 (2001-10-21)
     553- made Mindi work with Red Hat 6.2 and 2.2.19 kernel
     554- if mkisofs is not found, say so; don't just say, 'an error occurred while I was trying to make an ISO image'
     555- when formatting and writing floppies, if /dev/fd0's size is indeterminable then I'll use /dev/fd0H1440 instead
     556- make sure xfs.o, jfs.o, reiserfs.o, ext2.o, ext3.o modules are backed up (if they exist) to boot disks
     557- fixed a silly bug that stopped Mindi from handling its own modules properly; only affects newbie users with broken kernels (i.e. the very people that Mindi's failsafe kernel was meant to help!)

     564- removed gawk, printf from deplist.txt
     565
     566v0.42 (2001-10-10)
     567- make sure lvm-mod, raid0, raid1 and raid5 modules are backed up
     568- added 'you need a ramdisk' to FAQ
     569- 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)
     570- when searching for your current kernel version, do not examine a file if it does not exist (it sounds obvious, I know...)
     571- when asking user to send me a copy of their log file, point out that it may contain info which they do not want me to see but that they are SOL unless I can actually see their log file
     572- 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
     573- plays nicely with devfs-enabled kernels and distros
     574- data floppies are now 1.44MB each; boot floppy is still 1.72MB
     575- if binutils or libbinutils is not installed, abort
     576- fixed a bug which meant that some big files overwrote each other at backup-time and caused library-related problems are boot-time
     577- enabled comments ('#') in deplist.txt
     578- disabled fsck.* in deplist.txt; user may re-enable the line if s/he wants those tools available at boot-time
     579- 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
     580- better at guessing the size of swap partition
     581- drop minix tools from deplist; user can restore them if s/he wants to use the minix filesystem
     582- don't backup _all_ cdrom modules (if backing up 'cdrom.o'); be selective! ...minor bug in ListKerneModulePaths has been fixed
     583- if the user has two glibc libraries - one in /lib and one in /lib/i686 - then Mindi will re-jig the softlinks so that only the version in /lib is backed up, to save space on the data disks
     584- major rewrite of the code that copies the tools and libraries from the data disks; prettier, faster and more stable (and did I mention how kind it is to your hard-working hands?)
     585- better handling of crazy libraries and softlinks thereto
     586- 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
     587- ignore kernels named vmlinux (note the 'X'); traditionally, kernels are named vmlinuz (note the 'Z') or something similar
     588- no longer backup all modules to CD/tape; just backup the ones loaded at backup-time; this saves boot-time ramdisk space
     589- removed all references to LOOPDEVICE
     590- LVM is supported (experimental; watch this space...)
     591- included a tarball of 'sane' /dev/loop* nodes which will be extracted and added to the boot disk; this helps maintain Mindi's backward- compatibility with non-devfs kernels and distros
     592- when copying modules to boot or data disks, uncompress them first if they are gzipped (some distros come with compressed modules)
     593- no longer copies all loaded modules to the 2.88 MB El Torito bootable floppy image; instead, it copies FLOPPY_MODS to the 1.72 MB image, CDROM_MODS to the 2.88 MB image, and _all_ modules that were loaded at backup-time to the data disks - supports tape streamers, in conjunction with Mondo
     594- uses busybox's sync again; let's see if that breaks anything...
     595- 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
     596- 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
     597
     598v0.41 (2001-09-28)
     599- excluded *.old from the 'boot.b' list when searching for boot.b
     600- updated Mindi's own failsafe kernel+modules to v2.4.10
     601- added umount to deplist again
     602- improved Mindi's support of modular kernels (esp. modular CD-ROM drive and floppy disk drives)
     603- don't accuse Linux 2.4.10 users of having a 'buggy kernel'
     604- restored the libc5 versions of sync and umount (dropped from deplist but also from busybox)
     605- fixed a lot of silly bugs related to incorporating Busybox in Mindi
     606- experimental LVM support
     607- added 'analyze-my-lvm' script to the tarball; Mindi uses it now
     608- able to recognize & record LVM mounts, adding them to the mountlist
     609- 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
    731610      have them unless you're using LVM, so this is not 'bloat' IMO :)
    732     - added date and sync to deplist again
    733     - when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
    734     - amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1
    735           spaces between cols
    736       checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
    737     - incorporated busybox 0.60-1; now, Mindi is faster at run-time and
    738           smaller at boot-time; you can fit a typical system onto 3 floppies;
    739           also, a kernel up to 1MB in size (approx.) can now be accommodated
    740     - supports kernels that have MODULAR support for CD-ROM's or floppies
    741     - Mindi copies only the loaded modules to the data disks but it copies
    742           _all_ modules to the CD, just in case
    743     - thanks to busybox your floppy-based Mindi boot disk set should now be
    744           able to accommodate a kernel of up to 1MB in size
    745     - boot into Expert Mode unless boot disk was generated by Mondo
    746     - exclude all softlinks from list of 'eligible' kernels
    747         - exclude kernels with 'vmlinux' in their names
    748     - removed A LOT of files from deplist.txt's dependency list; they are
    749           listed in deplist.removed, in case you want to put them back :-)
    750     - excludes libX11, libXext, libXi, libgtk, libgdk ALWAYS, whether you
    751           add them to deplist.txt or not; [cancel this by editing line 485]
    752     - rewrote AddFileToDir() to make it more efficient (but slower...)
    753     - strip chaff from binaries; strip comments from bash scripts; strip
    754           comments from /etc/termcap
    755 
    756 v0.40
    757     - if you use a softlink to your CD dev, e.g. /dev/cdrecorder->scd0,
    758           then Mindi should handle it properly now (i.e. not bomb out)
    759     - if you have a large kernel & lots of modules loaded, Mindi will only
    760       copy as many modules to the ramdisk as will _fit_ on a ramdisk that
    761           will have to go alongside your kernel on a 2.88MB floppy disk
    762     - if your kernel does not support loopfs, Mindi will say so & abort
    763     - turned some warnings into fatal errors, to help the user to figure
    764       out exactly why Mindi won't work on their kernel
    765     - changed mke2fs -N24 to -N32, to see if it helps braindead distros
    766     - Mondo now tells Mindi whether or not to use its stock kernel
    767     - gone back to the old 'insert-my-modules' for now; it's more reliable
    768     - working on the 'insert-all-my-modules' script, to make it compatible
    769       with a wider range of insane distros and kernels
    770     - dropped the '-c' option from LILO call
    771         - removed cdrecord, mkisofs, vi, route and diff from deplist.txt
    772     - slowed down the 'split data between floppies' routine; made it
    773           try harder to squeeze more data onto each floppy
    774     - excluding nvidia modules from the "insert-all-my-modules" script
    775           because it sometimes causes freeze-ups
    776     - added code to copy your fstab, lilo.conf, etc. to a tarball which, in
    777           the event of an error, Mindi will ask the user to e-mail me
    778 
    779 v0.39
    780     - plays nicely with devfs, so long as your old /dev/hdX, /dev/sdX
    781       softlinks are still there :-)
    782     - if your swap partition isn't mounted, Mindi will decide that it is
    783       125MB; it used to abort but now it just warns & makes a good guess
    784     - testing the failsafe kernel & associated scripts
    785     - only use lilo's "-c" option if NOT a 2.88MB floppy disk image
    786     - copes better with .o, .gz, etc. module suffixes
    787     - better 'loaded modules / not loaded modules' feedback at boot-time
    788     - semi-forces isofs and ide-cd (not isofs.o and ide-cd.o); the former
    789           will be more compatible with stock kernels - e.g. Red Hat, Mandrake;
    790           also added vfat, fat & a few other modules to the list of 'foced'.
    791     - removed the '-c' switch from the call to LILO (some BIOSes don't
    792           like it very much)
    793     - removed chaff from ramdisk's /etc/login.defs, saving approx 7K
    794     - format the boot disks with -N 24 (was -N 64)
    795     - do not insist on CD #1 (at boot-time) if there is no 'CD #' marker
    796     - amend format-and-kludge-vfat; now, it will not abort if it cannot
    797       find its entry in mountlist; it doesn't need to find the entry
    798           anyway, except to check that the kludge works (which it does)
    799     - if user chooses to use Mindi's failsafe 2.4.9 kernel, Mindi will load
    800           Mindi's versions of user's modules at boot-time
    801     - make label-devices-as-necessary log its efforts
    802     - added e2label and tune2fs to deplist.txt
    803         - if you boot in Normal Mode, I'll call mondo-restore --interactive
    804           instead of just mondo-restore
    805         - replaced K7-compatible 2.4.7 kernel with a 586-comp'ble 2.4.9 kernel
    806     - improved the post-run clean-up
    807     - force the copying/loading of isofs.o and ide-cd.o, which enhances
    808           Mindi's support for kernels that have modular CD-ROM support
    809     - Interactive Mode offers to edit /tmp/mountlist.txt before running
    810           mondo-restore (good idea from F. Boon)
    811     - /dev/hd[e-h]* have been added to the ramdisk
    812     - disabled Cuckoo and Bootstrap Modes (they weren't doing anything
    813           anyway & were probably confusing some users)
    814     - removed 'edit mountlist?' question (because mondo-restore takes
    815           care of that now, via a user-friendly mountlist editor)
    816     - included a copy of mondo-manual.html
    817     - only kludge /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 (if vfat, of course);
    818           otherwise, use regular mkfs.vfat
    819         - use mkfs.dos if mkfs.vfat does not exist
    820     - moved some scripts from rootfs.tgz to Mondo's restore-scripts.tgz
    821 
    822 v0.38                                                              08/18/2001
    823         - clarified the 'more than one kernel found' comment
    824     - updated the README to emphasize that the scripts are deprecated
    825     - when displaying mountlist on screen, make it easier to read
    826     - changed most 'echo's to 'LogIt()'s; log most screen output to
    827           /var/log/mindi.log
    828     - user can now use a stock 2.4.7 kernel (which comes with Mindi)
    829           if the user's distro's kernel isn't right for a boot disk
    830 
    831 v0.37                                                              08/12/2001
    832         - changed the boot screen a little bit
    833     - changed the "cannot boot from CD-ROM" message (more informative now)
    834     - if an 'insmod'ed module cannot be found, warn but don't abort
    835     - that whole loop-mount/extract tgz to ramdisk thing --- if it fails,
    836           abort, don't try to continue; also, ask if loopfs is supported by
    837       kernel (if not, that might explain the error)
    838     - in addition to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules, also search
    839           /root/oss/modules for kernel modules (Phillip Deackes)
    840     - run syslog and klogd at restore-time, to pipe sys & knl messages to
    841           /tmp/mondo-restore.log
    842     - default restore-time boot mode is now 'interactive' (unless the
    843           disk is a 1.72MB, in which case default mode is still 'expert')
    844     - if CDROM can't find itself (long story, re: El Torito) then the
    845       script will say, "Your kernel is b0rken." This will reduce the
    846       number of erroneous error reports that I receive from users
    847     - working on implementing Cuckoo Mode again
    848 
    849 v0.36                                                              08/03/2001
    850     - testing it with LM8, RH71 and Slack8
    851     - explicitily exluding /mnt/floppy and /floppy from mountlist.txt
    852     - warn if afio not found (Mondo needs afio)
    853     - optional --custom <temp dir> <out dir> switch added, to let the user
    854       specify where the temp dirs and created images will be stored
    855     - changed /sbin/init to install modules _before_ trying to mount
    856           CD-ROM (David Granz)
    857     - create a gawk->awk shortcut at restore-time if necessary
    858     - specifically exclude /dev/fd0h1440 and /dev/fd0H1440 from mountlist
    859     - removed silly "was CD inserted?" message
    860 
    861 v0.35
    862     - if LILO fails, it writes its errors to the screen
    863     - use user's boot.b and LILO instead of Mindi's
    864     - tarball/RPM no longer includes boot.b or lilo
    865     - mke2fs' output will be echoed to screen, if an error occurs
    866     - doubled the -N inode allocations and removed some of the -i inode
    867       fiddles, just in case they are making Red Hat 7.1 choke
    868 
    869 v0.34
    870     - includes patch to rid Mindi of its dependence on /dev/loop devices
     611- added date and sync to deplist again
     612- when working on LVM stuff, use 'echo y | pvcreate -ff' (was '..-f')
     613- amended format-...-kludge to allow for mountlists with >1 spaces between cols checked the fsck.reiserfs is in deplist.txt (yes it is)
     614- 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

    2020dhcp is a keyword. Using it will provide all the previous 4 values to activate the LAN interface.
     21server is the ip addr of the NFS server
     22mountpoint is the mount point on the NFS server to use (should be in /etc/exports of the NFS server)

    36 During boot mondorestore will start your NFS configuration and mount mondo's content from the network rather than from a physical media. You may alter the IP configuration stored from the original machine by passing the ipconf option describing respectively the IP address, netmask, broadcast and default gateway you want to setup for the machine, separated by ':'. Or alternatively, you may specify the dhcp keyword so that a DHCP request is made to get those information. In the 2 cases, you have to mention on which physical interface those parameters should apply. On some configurations, you may also want to increase the number of ping queries made before the NFS mount, which is of 3 by default, using the ping option and give the number you want.

The structure on both server under the mountpoint has to be the same.

    810 - added Marcus Oberhumer's LZO to Mindi and Mondo; use '--use-lzo' switch
    811   to activate this groovy new compression algorithm; it is not as efficient
    812   as bzip2 but it is can take up to 50% less time than bzip2 to compress data

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

    1002832- cosmetic changes to mondo-restore.c's screen output
    1003 - RAID-related enhancements to mondo-restore.c
    1004   - RAID bkp/restore appears to be stable
    1005   - it is possible to move from non-RAID to RAID by backing up, wiping,
    1006     creating /etc/raidtab, modifying /tmp/mountlist.txt and then restoring
    1007   - mondo-restore.c works well
    1008   - the only weakness is that the kernel's messages are written to the
    1009     current console, not to a separate console... HELP? :-)

    1019842- if scratchdir or isodir contain more than one path (each), abort
    1020 - mondo-restore.c creates dummy partitions if the user starts the official
    1021   etc/fstab table at /dev/hda7 or something; so, partitioning should work,
    1022   even if the mountlist has some gaps
     843- 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

    1045864    - calls the script, 'stablilo-me' to run LILO if desired
    1046 - added 'restore-scripts.tgz', which contains the /mondo scripts that used
    1047   to live in Mindi; now, Mindi grabs them from here if necessary

    1057873- when slicing, indicate progress ("N slices...")
    1058 - when told to '--burn-cds', Mondo pipes mkisofs's output to cdrecord, instead
    1059   of saving the ISO file to disk first; this change will save time and space
    1060   (not in the Star Trek sense, however *smile*)
     874- 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*)

    1069 - thanks to recent changes to Mindi, Mondo is now compatible with the
    1070   filesystem formats JFS, ext3, ReiserFS, XFS and ext2 (if your own kernel is)
    1071 - CDs [2-N] do not have boot floppy images on them; only CD#1 does (although
    1072   CDs [2-N] do have the El Torito boot image, just in case...)
    1073 - modified the --burn-cds switch; now it takes 3rd param, 'cdrw' (optional) to
    1074   let you wipe and rewrite CDRWs instead of wasting CDRs ;-)
     883- thanks to recent changes to Mindi, Mondo is now compatible with the filesystem formats JFS, ext3, ReiserFS, XFS and ext2 (if your own kernel is)
     884- CDs [2-N] do not have boot floppy images on them; only CD#1 does (although CDs [2-N] do have the El Torito boot image, just in case...)
     885- modified the --burn-cds switch; now it takes 3rd param, 'cdrw' (optional) to let you wipe and rewrite CDRWs instead of wasting CDRs ;-)
    1075886- removed that PID thing; doesn't work; please don't run Mondo twice at once :)
    1076887- removed that "filenames contain '|'" error & associated problems
     
    1083894- don't make MD5 checksums if verify_level==0
    1084895- when archiving, make N.tar.bz2 and cklist.txt (tarball+checksums) in parallel
    1085 - at end of mondo-archive, remove scratchdir and TMP completely IF they were
    1086   created by Mondo (e.g. /home/mondo.scratch or /home/tmp.mondo.12345)
    1087 - fill CD/image up to 1MB less than its max size; was being filled up to about
    1088   8MB less than its max size, which wasted 8-10MB of storage space per disk
     896- 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)

    1112921
    1113922v0.976 (2000-09-01)
    1114 - technical changes
    1115   - 12MB ramdisk
    1116   - repackaged: now, Mondo comes in big tarball/RPM with all overhead-files
    1117   - each Mondo CD has a 15MB administrative overhead; used to be 50-60MB
    1118   - definitely 386-compatible now (RH 6.2 binaries)
    1119   - Linux-Mandrake 7.1 (2.2.16) kernel w/ReiserFS & Supermount
    1120   - modules.conf / conf.modules support (whichever you've got)
    1121   - user may include their own copies of modules, if Mondo doesn't come with
    1122     the requisite modules already
    1123 - extra facilities
    1124   - ReiserFS support
    1125   - '--load-modules <foo> <bar> ...' will allow you to force Mondo to load
    1126     key modules at boot-time, e.g. aic7xxx for SCSI-only users
    1127 - bugfixes
    1128   - path-exclusion code (mondo-backup)
    1129   - bogus 'flaws=1' message has been eradicated
    1130   - CDRW-finding code is now much better at finding the CDRW correctly
    1131   - dummy burn mode is working again
    1132   - fixed security hole (thanks, Matija); now, user will be warned if Mondo
    1133     is configured to execute /tmp/mondo-tarme
    1134   - changed lots of 'grep " $string "' to 'grep -w "$string"' (thanks, Matija)
     923- technical changes - 12MB ramdisk - repackaged: now, Mondo comes in big tarball/RPM with all overhead-files - each Mondo CD has a 15MB administrative overhead; used to be 50-60MB - definitely 386-compatible now (RH 6.2 binaries) - Linux-Mandrake 7.1 (2.2.16) kernel w/ReiserFS & Supermount - modules.conf / conf.modules support (whichever you've got) - user may include their own copies of modules, if Mondo doesn't come with the requisite modules already

    1148939
    1149940v0.972 (2000-06-16)
    1150 - auto-archive, mondo-archive and mondo-tarme updated to make them more
    1151   friendly towards mult-disk sets
     941- auto-archive, mondo-archive and mondo-tarme updated to make them more friendly towards mult-disk sets
    1152942- if multiple CDRW drives, user is asked which mondo-archive should use
    1153943
    1154944v0.971 (2000-06-14)
    1155945- auto-archive now passes CD size to mondo-archive
    1156 - mondo-tarme, in conjunction with auto-archive, now handles CDRW boot/burn
    1157   sharing much better than before
     946- mondo-tarme, in conjunction with auto-archive, now handles CDRW boot/burn sharing much better than before
    1158947
    1159948v0.970 (2000-06-10)
     
    1161950- lots of silly bugs & overhead problems fixed; 2nd floppy closer to working
    1162951- restore scripts all log to /var/log/mondo-restore.log
    1163 - auto-archive:-
    1164     - offers Low, Medium or High compression
    1165     - no longer needs a spare hard drive for scratch space; uses loopfs on
    1166       existing hard drive (if possible) instead
    1167     - handles weird (multi-CDROM) PCs more gracefully now
    1168     - handles PCs with CDRW but without CDROM more gracefully now
    1169     - deletes each ISO after burning it to a CD-R (if it _is_ burning them)
    1170     - asks if PC is old & crappy; if it is, IDE optimizations are disabled
    1171       at backup-time and restore-time
    1172     - lets user use CDRW for booting _and_ burning, thanks to reroute-softlinks
     952- 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
    1173953- selective restore is finally fixed
    1174954- nicer help screens on boot floppy
     
    1190970v0.963 (2000-05-31)
    1191971- ISO images are no longer padded
    1192 - all currently-loaded modules are backed up to custom hboot.img & installed
    1193   at restore-time before CD is accessed
     972- all currently-loaded modules are backed up to custom hboot.img & installed at restore-time before CD is accessed
    1194973- '--burn-cd <speed>' switch added
    1195 - '--no-opt' switch added; use it in the call to mondo-archive if you don't
    1196   want IDE optimization when restoring
     974- '--no-opt' switch added; use it in the call to mondo-archive if you don't want IDE optimization when restoring
    1197975- lots of work done on auto-archive
    1198976- mondo-extras-1.5 created; excludes mondo-zfile but includes hlib.tar.bz2
    1199977- boot floppy image now includes kernel w/lots of SCSI stuff
    1200978- slice* deleted (WipeArchives); was 'slices*' (bug!)
    1201 - restore scripts all use 'lastbit-me' to find the 'X' part of '/dev/X' device;
    1202   this will make it easier to port Mondo to kernel 2.4.x
    1203 - I cannot make SCSI-based CDROMs boot from Mondo CDs properly... but SCSI
    1204   hard drives and ZIP drives should be handled ok from now on
    1205 - with a little coaxing, Mondo will backup Windows-only PCs (as well as
    1206   Lin/Win and Linux-only PCs)
     979- restore scripts all use 'lastbit-me' to find the 'X' part of '/dev/X' device; this will make it easier to port Mondo to kernel 2.4.x

    12321007- mondo-vfat-1.0 package released, to provide kludging for VFAT bootables
    12331008- logfile now saved at /var/log/mondo-archive.log (not `pwd`/mondo-archive.log)
    1234 - pid registered/checked _after_ command line processed... so you can do --help
    1235   without being shouted at ;)
     1009- pid registered/checked _after_ command line processed... so you can do --help without being shouted at ;)
    12361010- restore-me broken into 2 scripts: untar-me and biggify-me
    12371011- restore-subroutine-me now renamed untar-subroutine-me
    1238 - bzip2 decompression should work again ;) ... a missing '-Z' was added to
    1239   the afio call, and the usr/lib/libbz* libraries are now included on CD ISOs
     1012- 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
    12401013- fixed hack-lilo to ignore blank lines
    1241 - really ugly boot kludge has been implemented, using embleer files
    1242   to make newly-formatted VFAT partitions bootable
     1014- really ugly boot kludge has been implemented, using embleer files to make newly-formatted VFAT partitions bootable
