    931   trying to compare or restore big files that were spread across CD's
    932 - Interactive Mode goes straight to 'mondo-restore --interactive' now, i.e.
    933   the user doesn't have to choose Interactive once at boot and once within
    934   mondo-restore
     775- 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

    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

    1054871- retract the CD tray after asking user to enter 'continue' (PauseAndAskForCDR)
    1055 - uses C program instead of bash loop for PauseAndAskForCDR; some bash versions

     872- 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
    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*)

    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 ;-)

    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)

    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

    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
     924- extra facilities - ReiserFS support - '--load-modules <foo> <bar> ...' will allow you to force Mondo to load key modules at boot-time, e.g. aic7xxx for SCSI-only users
     925- bugfixes - path-exclusion code (mondo-backup) - bogus 'flaws=1' message has been eradicated - CDRW-finding code is now much better at finding the CDRW correctly - dummy burn mode is working again - fixed security hole (thanks, Matija); now, user will be warned if Mondo is configured to execute /tmp/mondo-tarme - changed lots of 'grep " $string "' to 'grep -w "$string"' (thanks, Matija)

    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

    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

    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
