new develrelease: grml 1.0-1 Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 22:15
Lots of development took place in the last weeks, finally we have a new develrelease. Quoting the main changelog for the new develreleases:
* featuring new stable kernel 2.6.22 See http://bts.grml.org/grml/issue216 for details regarding development and progress. * *no* further speakup patch inside the kernel, see http://braille.uwo.ca/pipermail/speakup/2007-June/043478.html for the reason * update to libc 2.6; packages from Debian pool by 2007-07-13 * grml-x with multihead support using Xinerama -> % grml-x -xinerama ... Notice: this is limited to two monitors currently and I can test it only on my intel based Samsung X20 laptop. Please report feedback if you give it a try! Patches are welcome as well. :) * some small improvements in bootsequence when running inside VirtualBox * grml2hd supports installation on LVM devices through 'LVM=/dev/mapper/target grml2hd' * added bootoption startup=$script to startup the provided $script/application instead of grml-quickconfig * support LVM (logical volumes) in boot sequence: - bootoption 'lvm' activates them - no special bootoption just runs 'lvdisplay' and if something can be found the user gets a hint to execute 'Start lvm2' to set it up - bootoption 'nolvm' completely disables the lvm code/checks * Due to the emacs21 to emacs22 migration the following packages are not yet available: auctex: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=432206 python-mode: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=424973 Whereas the other removed packages "gnus gnus-bonus-el w3-el-e21 w3-url-e21" shouldn't be necessary with the new emacs version AFAICS. * the fluxbox theme (~/.fluxbox/styles/Sn33z) is broken with the current version. Just delete it manually or choose another theme from the fluxbox menu. Would be great if someone could take a closer look at fixing this issue! * the windows/ directory on the ISO has been renamed (currently only for now) due to space problems.... * several bugfixes, updated configuration files,...
