Last wednesday I uploaded the new grml develrelease 0.7-5. Quoting the changelog:
* 2.6.17-grml: http://blog.grml.org/archives/163-2.6.17-grml.html - reiser4 is *not* part of the kernel. Anyone out there missing it? - ipw3495 is part of the kernel, the daemon is missing though [...] - I'm thinking about integration of swsusp2 - any votes? TODO-list for 2.6.17-grml: http://dufo.tugraz.at/~prokop/grml-kernel/2.6.17-grml/TODO * integrated fvwm-crystal-minimal (packaged by myself, you can find it in the grml-repos; replaces fvwm-crystal for space-reasons) * dropped gcc/g++ 4.0, providing 4.1 instead as the kernel is compiled with 4.1 * vi points to vim instead of elvis (thanks, Wolfgang Karall) * updated packages to debian-pool by 2006-06-21
Now I've finished work on the ipw3495 stuff: ipw3945-ucode and ipw3945d are available in the grml repository. The ipw3495 module works out-of-the-box on grml now.
Running some more tests with different kernel configurations showed that swsusp2 very probably won't find its way to the grml-kernel. On the other hand the tests with SMP were very good, so we might have SMP-support in grml 0.8. Stay tuned. :-)
The TODO list for the the current build of 2.6.17-grml is also very short now: only ivtv and linux-wlan-ng are missing. I'll package truecrypt, tpm-emulator and grml-kerneladdons for 2.6.17-grml as soon as the final build of 2.6.17-grml is available.

Being back from Robocup 2006 I've been working on 2.6.17-grml:
% uname -a Linux grml 2.6.17-grml #1 PREEMPT Tue Jun 20 19:39:46 CEST 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
The first public build of 2.6.17-grml including some additional modules is available online now.
The current patch-list (extracted from the README):
Do you think a patch should find its way to the grml-kernel? Please let us know so we can put the patch to our review list.

I've been in Bremen at Robocup 2006 for the last 8 days as member of the ROBOCUP 'Mostly Harmless' team (Graz University of Technology, Austria). I was responsible for all the IT-stuff. Of course our roboters were powered by grml. Take a look at the webgallery to see our grml-powered roboters in action.

grml on linuxdays vienna 2006 Posted by Michael Prokop in events at 22:05
Some days ago I visited "Linuxwochen Wien". Of course I held a lecture about grml (including a presentation of the great Zsh): 'grml - Linux Live-CD für Sysadmins und Geeks', see the picture on the left (thanks go to Sven Guckes for the shot). On the second day of the event I had a talk about 'Erfolgreiche OpenSource Projekt-Maintenance'. I was pretty amazed that so many people attended my talks, even though I had the first slot in the morning for the grml-talk and the last slot in the evening for my opensource project maintenance talk. Some people even had to stand because they didn't get a seat. Nice. :-)
If you're interested in the slides of my talks you can get them now:
I also met several people for the first time in reallife, to name some of them: Klaus 'koki' Ita, Markus 'markus23' Raab, Pablo 'redtux' Hoertner, David 'DavidS' Schmitt, Fabian 'lefant' Linzberger, Christian 'Greek0' Aichinger. And of course I met Alfie (AKA Rhonda). I really enjoyed meeting all of you!
We had a grml-booth too. It was fun to share the booths of grml and debian. Usually the grml-booth had to answer debian related questions and people behind the debian-booth had to provide grml-support. ;-) I was *really* amazed how many people already use grml.
Because of the presence at the grml-booth I visited only few talks. Some interesting stuff:
Stuff I learned at the event:
If you want to browse some pics, thank Sven Guckes for his online gallery of linuxdays vienna:
I really enjoyed the event. The only bad news: I got ill in the night to friday, seems like a small burn-out hit me. :-(
