fullautomatic grml-installation Posted by Michael Prokop in packages at 19:06
I just implemented the code for running grml2hd in full automized mode. This means you can run:
# GRML2HD_NONINTERACTIVE=yes grml2hd
... drink some coffee and some minutes later - without any further interaction - you have a full functional linux system on your harddisk. Configuration of grml2hd is possible via /etc/grml2hd/config. You can even run pre- and post-commands to partition your harddisk automatically, run upgrades without interaction or whatever you like.
Now I will implement a bootoption 'grml2hd' which allows booting and installing grml without any further interaction right out of the box. This means it will be possible to set up a cluster of - let's say for example - 30 computers in a computer lab without any further interaction just via using grml with grml2hd and grml-terminalserver.

grml: laptop optimization - grml-laptop Posted by Michael Prokop in packages at 11:49
Hardware recognition of grml is quite stable. But there exist are some laptops which require deep woodo and magic to work as intented to. Some laptops provide additional hotkeys and specific resolutions which might not work right out-of-the-box. Therefore I just created the package grml-laptop:
grml provides a hardware recognition system right out
I will add a cheatcode laptop=... for using those scripts. So if you would like to see a script for a specific/your laptop: please contribute!

I just created a package namend grml-fixes. From the package description:
This package includes some fixes for the grml system. There are for example some problems with (upstream/debian) shell scripts and the zsh. Therefor this package fixes them until they are fixes upstream.
Now we are again a step closer to the big goal to be once able to run 'apt-get install grml' on a plain Debian system and get a full-featured grml-system out of it. :-)

new grml2hd features, status of ... Posted by Michael Prokop in packages at 02:49
Today I worked a lot on grml2hd (the grml-installer) and it's features. First of all it's possible to use grml2hd with grml-small now. This means you can get a linux installation on a >=200MB harddisk system. ;-) I also integrated the grml-autoconfig framework within grml2hd. There's a script namend grml-autoconfig which is the interface to the grml-autoconfig framework's configuration file /etc/grml/autoconfig. And finally there are some other small improvements not visible to the user but useful for the bootup sequence. I also improved the grml-autoconfig-framework itself - some parts of the config-framework have been merged into the code. I also worked on the script mkpersistenthome and the home=...-bootparam: both are essential parts of the config-framework and have to work with grml 0.5.
Kernel 2.6.13-grml works quite fine but it does not work on the live-cd-system yet. The reason is that there's one bug left in unionfs and therefor I'll have to wait until unionfs-developers resolve the bug and release a snapshot supporting kernel 2.6.13. In the meanwhile I'm working on the config-framework...
