Great news. Now I'm part of the Robocup team "Mostly Harmless" at Graz University of Technology, Austria. I will be working on kernelstuff, building debian packages and doing hardware recognition using grml technologies. An embedded system will be used with hardware like a CAN Dongle, compact flash cards, WLAN, serial connection and so on. This means I will work on grml as part of my studies at university at least for this semester.
Thanks to Mabu for his investigations!

I'm preparing the development release for the upcoming grml 0.5 release. As we have a kernel upgrade in this release (using 2.6.13-grml) and I'm still lacking hardware using SCSI-controllers for booting I request your help. If you have access to a computer which is able to boot via SCSI please help me. You just have to send me the file '/proc/pci' and which module is used for the device (if you don't know which one is used just send me output of 'lsmod' and the kernel configuration). Just drop me a mail (mika [at] grml.org), your help is appreciated!

We just have a developer meeting in Graz and Gebi wrote a script namend grml-vpn. grml-vpn is a program to establish encrypted communication channels in a network. We just tested it and it really rocks. :-) It's very easy to use, take a look at the usage example:
Gebi (root@gebi) starts grml-vpn on his laptop with key/passphrase 'test' and uses his and my ip for the encrypted communication channel:
root@gebi # grml-vpn -k test add 1000 192.168.1.104 192.168.1.101
I (root@mika) am using the same command line on my laptop:
root@mika # grml-vpn -k test add 1000 192.168.1.104 192.168.1.101
To demonstrate that it's working let's use IPsec's setkey command:
root@mika # setkey -D192.168.1.101 192.168.1.104
Now let's check whether it's really encrypted:
root@mika # ping 192.168.1.104

grml2hd with reiser4-support Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 16:35
root@grml ~ # mount
Yes, that's grml running on a reiser4-partition. I had some problems with lilo out-of-the-box but I'm looking forward to get a full working version into grml2hd. :-)

install plain Debian via grml Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 18:59
I just created a new tip named "Install (plain) Debian via grml" in the grml-wiki on the tips-page. It's a short (example) guide how to install a plain(!) Debian system via grml and debootstrap. I just tested it on my box using the current grml-small-snapshot. Rocks :-)

Today I created a new page in the grml-wiki: grml on laptops
The target of the page is to collect information regarding problems with laptops. Often it's just a short commandline, bootoption or keypress which strongly improves hardware support/the situation in general with grml.
If you have some spare time please contribute!

german grml-paper available Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 11:39
A german paper about grml is available online: grml-grml.paper (170kB, PDF) That's 24 pages about technologies used at grml and some main information about grml itself. Feedback welcome!
BTW: If (upcoming beta-tester) Carl St-Jacques reads this entry: please contact me with another e-mail address. I can't reach you with the provided one (connect to mx.francolinux.ca[184.108.40.206]: Connection timed out). Thanks.

2.6.13-grml and status information Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 10:58
Currently I'm working on shortening the todolist. Nearly no serious issues are left, just some improvements on some scripts have to be done. grml2hd needs to be extended and the grml-configframework is the last release stopper. Now I'm working on 2.6.13-grml:
mika@grml ~ % uname -a
It supports squashfs, reiser4 and vesafb-tng already. If everything goes fine with all the extra-modules (ipw, ndiswrapper,...) I will ship grml 0.5 with 2.6.13-grml.
BTW: I've a new developer machine now: a Samsung X20 XVM 1600 V laptop.
