A new develrelease is available. Quoting the main changelog from my mail to beta-testers and developers:
* includes the final build of 2.6.17-grml (based on 220.127.116.11): - reiser4 is part of the kernel again - SMP enabled (this means we also have dual-core support!) - featuring all extra modules * bootoption noblank: disable console blanking * grml2hd: - partition selector - grml-setlang: set language system-wide on grml system - grml-setkeyboard: set keyboard layout system-wide on grml system via /etc/sysconfig/keyboard * grml-policy-rc.d: a wrapper script for invoke-rc.d to avoid automatical startup of init scripts via invoke-rc.d * osd_server.py: listen for incoming messages on a specific port and print them via osd_cat; run 'grml-tips osd' for more details (thanks to Ulrich Dangel, Alexander Bernauer and Rico Schickel) * myip: return IP address of running system on stdout * updated hwinfo to version 12.9 (with backporting hw-ids from 13.0) * updated packages to debian-pool by 2006-07-27
Notice: this is a pre-release of grml 0.8, the next few days are meant for testing, testing and testing so we can ship a new stable release soon.

The final build of 2.6.17-grml is available. It's based on 18.104.22.168, including some more patches and supports SMP and reiser4. I could manage to build all extra modules as well. If you want to install the debian packages before they are going into the grml-repository get them from the usual place.
The kernel is integrated and running with(in) current grml-build 0.7-5f. A new develrelease will be available within the next few days. Then we'll have the big find-bugs-and-report-them-so-we-can-fix-them week before grml 0.8 is available as a new stable release.

language-selection within grml2hd, ... Posted by Michael Prokop in packages at 22:49
Currently I'm working on language support within grml2hd so you can easily select your prefered language and keyboard settings via grml-setlang and grml-setkeyboard. Works fine so far, we just have to do some more testing.
Jimmy wrote a partition selector for grml2hd which should make live easier for grml2hd-newbies. :-)
I slightly improved some configuration files and scripts. An absolutely great feature has been integrated: osd_server.py by Ulrich Dangel, Rico Schiekel and Alexander Bernauer. Special thanks to Ulrich 'schula' Dangel for his work in #grml. osd_server.py allows you to be notified about remote stuff via On Screen Display when running X. Expect to find a hint for setup in grml-tips(1) soon.
Another feature waiting for being published: grml-policy-rc.d, to avoid automatical startup of init scripts via invoke-rc.d. More details will be available in its manpage as soon as we consider it working and stable.
And I'm still working on the patchset for 2.6.17-grml. I'm waiting for the next stable release (should be available on 19th of july) before providing a final build of 2.6.17-grml.
We will have a grml-develmeeting today (tuesday) where we will talk about grml 0.8. We have some release-stoppers left and try to reduce todo-list within the next few days so we can release grml 0.8 at beginning of august. Stay tuned...
