grml-live (0.0.10) unstable; urgency=low
* Drop patches which are part of FAI 3.2.3 now. Depend on
FAI version 3.2.3 therefor.
* FAI 3.2.3 has a new log schema, adjusted grml-live accordingly.
Quoting the NEWS file of FAI:
- LOGDIR is now /var/log/fai/$HOSTNAME/$FAI_ACTION_date+time
- LOGDIR is /tmp/fai during an installation (not dirinstall), and
will be copied to the path above at the end of an installation
* Log the executed FAI, squashfs and mkisofs command lines to
* New option '-C <configuration_file>' for specifying a configuration
file. Needs heavy testing though, because the files are updated
during runtime it isn't as easy as expected to be. :-/
* Support $ZERO_FAI_LOGFILE inside grml-live configuration for removing
old FAI logs.
* Do not enable apt-listbugs if the binary is not available.
[Testing: issue340]
* Add keychain package to GRML_SMALL.
* Add new packages to GRML_MEDIUM:
- grml-live
- keychain
- lzma-modules-2.6.23-grml
- squashfs-modules-2.6.23-grml (we build the module external now)
* Add new packages to GRML_FULL:
- aosd-cat
- grml-live
- lzma-modules-2.6.23-grml
- squashfs-modules-2.6.23-grml (we build the module external now)
* Support loading of squashfs module via
* Make sure we have pinning for grml-stable and grml-testing
repositories via /etc/grml/fai/apt/preferences, not matter where
the packages come from (web vs. local mirror/cache for example).
* Remove base.tgz from chroot directory.
* Do not create /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and
/etc/sysconfig/provider any longer in cleanup script.
* Fix typo in bootsplash f3 (thanks, jimmy).
* Switch order of 'lang=us apm=power-off' to 'apm=poweroff' in
isolinyx/syslinux/grub configuration because getbootparam
of grml-autoconfig requires a whitespace inside /proc/cmdline.
* Support grml2ram bootoption inside isolinyx/syslinux/grub

* Remove /var/run/fai/fai_softupdate_is_running and
/var/run/fai/FAI_INSTALLATION_IN_PROGRESS if we exit grml-live.

grml-live (0.0.7) unstable; urgency=low
The "holidays? what? are you joking?!"-release.
* Added FAI patches to /usr/share/grml-live/patches/ - it's
recommended to apply the patches to FAI until they are accepted
upstream. See Debian's BTS for more details: #444210, #447080
and #448426.
* Support option '-u' for updating system.
* Reworked buildd concept.
- Now we have a seperate
/usr/share/grml-live/buildd/ for generic stuff
and /etc/grml/grml-buildd.conf as configuration file.
- Use grml-buildd.{stdout,stderr} instead of
grml-live.{stdout,stderr} as log files.
- buildd/ do not mv files if there was an error
during grml-live execution
- do not re-execute grml-live is the target ISO exists already
* Update zsh completion - thanks to Frank Terbeck!
* Set /etc/grml_version of live-system to the according value.
[Closes: issue322]
* Support setting /etc/debian_chroot inside chroot (useful if
building fails and manual interaction is needed).
* Log to /var/log/grml-live.log by default now and support
$ZERO_LOGFILE for cleaning up logs.
* Added new grml-repository named grml-live which is intented
to fix issues from Debian for grml-live builds. It is automatically
activated if you are building against unstable/sid and should
be used manually only if you realy know what you are doing.
Notice: if something fails inside building the base chroot/
debootstrap system we can't do anything via grml-live for you
right now. Instead grab the base.tgz from
* Add /usr/share/grml-live/scripts/ (by formorer, thx!)
for comparing two repositories.
* Replaced /etc/grml/fai/files/etc/apt/preferences
with /etc/grml/fai/apt/preferences so grml-live repository
can be used and configured at a single place.
* Use apt-pinning via /etc/grml/fai/config/hooks/instsoft.GRMLBASE
and drop it from /etc/grml/fai/config/scripts/GRMLBASE/33-aptsetup
later again.
* Display version number of grml-live.
* Log executed grml-live command line.
* Set FAI_DEBOOTSTRAP_OPTS="--exclude=dhcp-client,info"

* Use "newest" kernel only if two kernels are present in the chroot.
* Set $SECONDS to unknown if $start_seconds is not set.

always set - even when exiting with an error.

from fails.

* Added support for new kernel version 2.6.23-grml to
* Use uxterm as x-terminal-emulator and fall back to xterm

via using /etc/snort/snort.common.parameters (thanks for
the idea, Thomas Lange!)

a symlink to /usr/src/linux/include/linux but keep it as
a warning instead.

- disable pipeline workaround
- create /dev/MAKEDEV in chroot to work around the

* Use /var/log/grml-live.log as log file as /var/log/fai/* is too
dangerous because of automatic removal of the files/dirs via fai.
