I just finished work on the 'grml 22c3 release'. The 22nd Chaos Communication Congress (December 27th to 30th, 2005) will take place in Berlin/Germany. I'm not on the event (lacking time), but several grml team members and beta-testers will be there! 'grml 22c3' is not a public release, it is only available for beta-testers and people at 22c3. It's a preview release of the upcoming grml 0.6 which will be available in january 2006.

grml2hd and software raid (level 1) Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 00:20
I just added support for installing grml on software RAID level 1 with grml2hd. As we already have support for initrds it wasn't such a big deal. [Disclaimer: it's not a frontend for mdadm, you have to use mdadm manually on your own. If you want to use software RAID you should know how to handle it anyway.]
So if you want to use RAID1 with '/' on software-raid run mdadm and install grml afterwards on the new created device using the environment variable SWRAID which passes the provided option to the raid-extra-boot-option in lilo.conf:
# mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=raid1 \
That's it. :-)

status report... grml 0.5-3 Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 00:02
A lot of development has taken place in the last few weeks and days. We now have a full featured 2.6.14-grml kernel with udev replacing hotplug-light (thanks, Tobias!). Using bt-hid it's possible to connect a bluetooth mouse, some more bluetooth scripts are work in progress... grml2hd supports initrd (and therefor installation on scsi and usb-devices). Improved synaptics touchpad support, ip addresses of network interfaces are displayed in GNU screen (thanks, Gebi!) and lots of other nice stuff. :-)
Now we are waiting for kernel 2.6.15, in the meanwhile we are continuing work on the big quality check. We plan to release grml 0.6 and grml-small 0.2 at beginning of 2006.
