I just read the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter: May 23th, 2005 and found grml mentioned in section 'Austria: Grazer Linuxtage was a success'. :-)
Tobias told me that grml is mentioned in the german it magazine c't in current edition 12/2005 on page 60 with softlink 0512060.
BTW: I'm collecting all the press links on grml.org/press/. If you find another ressource where grml is mentioned please let me know.

Jimmy and me were at Linuxdays Vienna 2005 on thursday and friday (the community days on 26th and 27th of mai). I had another talk about grml:
The german slides are available online: grml-wien05.pdf [454k].
A more detailed, german report about the event is availablein my personal blog.
BTW: I won the hacktivity show on friday evening and now I'm proud owner of a SuSE box. 8-)

Besides replying to all the mails receiving my grml-mailbox in those days I'm trying to improve some stuff at grml of course. In the next few days we'll have another grml-developer-meeting and we will discuss what will be main features of grml 0.5.
What's currently on the todo-list:

working on an usb-stick variant of grml Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 11:04
Yesterday I've been working for an USB-stick variant of grml. I could reduce the ISO from nearly 700 MB down to 307 MB:
% ls -lah grml_0.4b.iso -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 307M 2005-05-16 12:40 grml_0.4b.iso
All the documentation, LaTeX and stuff like emacs had to leave. Booting still works as intented to, even X is running. ;-) Now I've to reduce the iso for another 51 MB so we can provide a grml-ISO for a 256 MB stick.

Grazer Linuxday 2005 - presented ... Posted by Michael Prokop in events at 14:10
Yesterday Grazer Linuxdays 2005 took place. Several grml-developers (Mika, Jimmy, Gebi, Martin and Alfie) have been there, grml has had a booth between the Debian and the Gentoo guys. Flaming was fun of course. ;-)
Sunday, May 8. 2005
Yesterday Gebi, Jimmy and me had a final devel-session for the upcoming grml release 0.4.
We did some bugfixing, improved grml2hd once again and tested grml-terminalserver via a crossover cable from my laptop to jimmys one. We could boot grml via PXE and via floppy-disk. Gebi, you did an awfull good job on grml-terminalserver! :-)

There are several updates in grml-etc and I improved grml-lock (now it also supports locking of X). We are coming closer to grml 0.4.

kernel 220.127.116.11 and some other stuff... Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 13:35
grml release 0.4 will be based upon kernel 18.104.22.168. The kernel build has been finished, documentation has been updated (see http://grml.org/kernel-devel/ - but not yet finished) and grml 0.3-7 is running with the kernel:
grml@grml ~ % uname -a
On friday Gebi presented me his grml-terminalserver which let's you boot on computers without CD-ROM but with PXE-cabable NICs. It works even on computers witout PXE using a floppy-drive. Woot! Some minor issues have to be fixed before releasing grml 0.4 with the grml-terminalserver, Gebi is working hard. ;-)
I wrote and tested the script grml-vpnc-tugraz which let's you connect to WLAN at TU Graz via vpnc. It will be part of grml 0.4 of course.
Now grml-hwinfo collects information of your hardware and writes everything to a file namend info.tar.bz2. Now we can get all information required to fix bugs reported by grml-users quite easy.
Several useful scripts also got part of grml-scripts, many updates in grml-etc. Just some minor issues have to be resolved, documentation has to become up2date and then grml 0.4 will be available!
