Project Release Information
This release has been tested on SuSE 10.x and Mandriva 2006 distributions. BusyBox has been updated to 1.1.0. Several bugfixes for LVM2 and uDev were applied.
This release has a lot of minor bugfixes, and introduces the mkcdrec wrapper script with an updated man page.
Support for the Fedora Core 4 distribution has been added, and the SPARC/Linux code has been completely updated. This release uses the new BusyBox 1.01 code, and many critical bugs were fixed.
mkCDrec now uses isolinux by default to boot from
CD-ROM instead of using syslinux bootfloppy
emulation. LVM2 and mdadm (for Software RAID) is
now fully supported. Perl scripts are now accepted
by mkCDrec, so the ADD_PERL variable should be set
to true in Config.sh.
Some minor bugs were fixed. The bootloader
detection code has been rewritten. Two new scripts
were added to the contributions directory:
tsm-restore.sh and dp-restore.sh for using mkCDrec
in combination with external backups stored on a
Tivoli Storage Manager system or Data Protector
server. A lot of restore functions were moved out
of the scripts and are now in the common libraries
to improve code maintenance.
