Hurray, we have a new develrelease! grml 0.8-2 is available for beta-testers and grml-developers.
Quoting the main changelog:
* Features brand new kernel 2.6.18-grml Notice: the fglrx and nvidia modules are available at http://dufo.tugraz.at/~prokop/grml-kernel/2.6.18-grml/ Notice2: not all modules are available yet; the missing ones are: reiser4 (not yet in kernel), acx100, adp94xx, bcm5700, dazuko, drbd8, lufs, nozomi, spca5xx, qc-usb, sl-modem, thinkpad, truecrypt * grml2hd checks whether you're installing to something like /dev/hdb3 and if /dev/[sh]da are harddisks, the lilo-dialog provides the possibility to install lilo into MBR of /dev/[sh]da instead of /dev/hdb3 or /dev/hdb. (Thanks for idea and code-base goes to Alexander Bernauer!) * Unicode support! http://blog.grml.org/archives/185-basic-unicode-support-for-grml.html What does this mean? You can use something like 'grml lang=at-utf8' to set environment variable for unicode. Just use "lang=$YOURLANGUAGE-utf8" to use this feature. The script grml-setlang allows to configure environment variables through /etc/default/locale. (Some more documentation will be available as soon as I upload the packages to the grml-repos.) * Split grml-etc into grml-etc-core: this provides the possibility to use grml-etc-core (which ships only some core config files for zsh, vim,...) on *plain* Debian (stable/testing/unstable) systems without interference. * Support truecrypt in our reboot/shutdown scripts (make sure no mapped volumes are left behind). * Check whether a swap partition is in use already and display info message during boot process (instead of an error message). * When running pump finished (which happens in background during bootup) it writes "finished_running_pump" into /etc/network/status/$DEVICE so you/we can check for it. * Bugfixes, improvements in rebuildfstab and other grml-packages... * Fixed the "Booting from external devices (SCSI/USB/Firewire) does not work" issue.
Get it as long as it's fresh and hot! :-)
