Work on kernel 2.6.16-grml has been finished. It's based on 126.96.36.199 and includes support for speakup, squashfs 3.0, iteraid, sdhci and reiser4. All the external modules usually provided by grml are available as well, take a look at the kernel-devel webpage for details.
BTW: Besides some updates in configuration files I also added support for detection of resume, speakup_synth, swspeak and brltty bootoptions to grml2hd-bootparams. This means you shouldn't need to add the options manually to lilo's append-line anymore.
A new develrelease (grml 0.6-8) will be available at the weekend. grml 0.7 is coming closer...

As you maybe know grml is already capable of booting from CD via firewire. Now we are also able to boot a grml2hd installation via firewire (thanks to maks for the initramfs-update). So we aren't limited to external usb devices but you can use your portable grml-installation even on external firewire devices. :-)
Note: currently initramfs on usb devices is broken, I hope this issue can be fixed within the next few days...
BTW: I also have a kernel 2.6.16-grml featuring reiser4-support now... grml 0.7 is coming closer...

2.6.16-grml available (update) Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 17:31
A first public version of kernel 2.6.16-grml is available. It includes support for speakup and the new squashfs version 3.0.
Currently nvidia-kernel, openafs, qc-usb, sl-modem, linux-wlan-ng and eagle-usb are missing from the external modules list, caused by building problems. grml-kerneladdons needs to be updated as well. I also found bugs in the exmap and nozomi source package.
BTW: Propably we still can't integrate loop-aes as we need CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP=y and this seems to conflict with loop-aes requirements. :-/
The ISO-build grml 0.6-7c is running with 2.6.16-grml already. Fixing the above mentioned problems is on my todo-list now. I'll provide a new develrelease very soon...
Update: a new kernel build (grml.04) without reiser4 is available and included in new develrelease grml 0.6-7

chemnitzer linuxdays 2006: done Posted by Michael Prokop in events at 13:04
We are back from Chemnitzer Linuxdays 2006. It was fun and I really enjoyed meeting all the other grml developers! Thanks to Timo 'Spida' Boettcher for sponsering a box of Club-Mate to the grml-team! :-) The slides of my german talk about grml are available online (1.5 MB, PDF). We also have some pics (by Karl Voit, thx!): clt06 gallery.
