7 Thanks to Dale Wiles <dwiles@users.sourceforge.net> for the
8 bug report and its fix.
b630baf0 9
c43794b1
SP
102. Fix dump -w/-W output for filesystems having the last backup
11 level equal to 0. Thanks to Pascal Bouchareine
12 <kalou@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
13
7f7d329e
SP
143. Enable restore to handle restoring onto a different SELinux
15 policy from the dump. Thanks to Tony Nelson
16 <tony_nelson@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
17 (see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189845
18 for details)
19
db80efa5
SP
204. Fix EA set failures when restoring immutable files. Thanks
21 to Andrew Kroeger for the patch.
22
4a9a33ef
SP
235. Fix "mode file too large" errors when restoring huge backups.
24 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
25 report.
26
d2816d4c
SP
276. Add the ability to link against libtinfo library if present,
28 instead of libtermcap or libncurses libraries. Thanks to
29 Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
30
03dbfe05
SP
317. When comparing a backup, do not consider to be an error the fact
32 that we encounter files created while dump was in progress.
33 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
34 report.
35
d93c86b3
SP
368. Force '-a' to be the default value when running 'restore -C'.
37 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
38 report.
39
b35abb32 409. Many improvements to the 'cron_dump_to_disk' example.
a405c61d
SP
41 Thanks to Aaron S. Hawley <ashawley@users.sourceforge.net> for
42 the patch.
43
eb1636e9
SP
4410. Fix the QFA generation when extended attributes are backuped
45 along with the inodes. Prior to this fix, the entries for
46 some inodes may get corrupted (duplicated entries or incorrect
47 ones), making the QFA file unusable for repositionning in
48 restore. Many thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com>
49 for the bug report and the testing of the fix.
50
11997d3b
SP
5111. Fix EA restoration in debug mode (Sourceforge bug #1986216).
52
34ec103e
SP
5312. Stefan Auracher <star7@onlinehome.de> noticed that the Tower
54 of Hanoi backup strategy documented in the man page wasn't
55 actually based on the Tower of Hanoi algorithm. The man page
56 was updated accordingly.
57
d322203c
SP
5813. Fix missing level information from dump output when using
59 the default level (RedHat bug #493635). Thanks to Adam Tkac
60 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
61
f39dae99
SP
6214. Fix the dump man page to reflect the fact that the default
63 dump level is 0 not 9 (RedHat bug #356121). Thanks to Adam Tkac
64 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
65
aeb0b047
SP
6615. Fixed a few spelling errors in the man pages (RedHat bug #489853).
67 Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
68
650071c1
SP
6916. Fixed restore man page and program usage which incorrectly stated
70 that -P and -A were both allowed in the same invocation (RedHat
71 bug #490627). Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
72
370f48b6 73Changes between versions 0.4b40 and 0.4b41 (released January 2, 2006)
54ebfc01 74=====================================================================
b630baf0
SP
75
761. Fix restore of dumped Access Control Lists. The previous
77 code for EA works fine, but ACLs needed conversion from the
78 ext2/3 disk format to posix_acl format before restoring.
f30c53e5 79
cb6d3f79
SP
802. Fix some issues with restoration of EA on big endian
81 platforms.
82
26ce8fc8
SP
833. Fix restore when the symtab is over 2GB in size.
84
df3d2ef9
SP
854. Made the directory hash indexing an optional feature,
86 accessible by the '-H' option of restore, and disable it
87 by default.
88
0c78942b
SP
895. Fixed dump to not include extended attributes information
90 in the toc (archive) file which confused restore -t.
91
84182f10
SP
92Changes between versions 0.4b39 and 0.4b40 (released May 2, 2005)
93=================================================================
f30c53e5
SP
94
951. Changed restore to emit warnings (instead of emitting a fatal
96 error) if a file (or a directory) is unavailable for a
97 comparision (if the user doesn't have the necessary permissions
98 to access it for example). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
99 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
35ed8cf8 100
979da669
SP
1012. Re-done the 'do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
102 (excluded from dump)' feature. The previous implementation
103 worked well for excluded directories but not for regular files.
104 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
105 report.
106
1ba0c4bb
SP
1073. Fixed a bug in dump where the tape size was miscalculated when
108 the user used -d/-s to specify the tape characteristics. Thanks
109 to Philip Goisman <goisman@physics.arizona.edu> for reporting
110 the bug.
111
c21722b0
SP
1124. Fixed another bug introduced in restore with the hashtree
113 implementation. This one caused restore to stop saying
114 "removenode: non-empty directory" in some cases.
115
cca7148b
SP
1165. Added support for dumping and restoring ext2/3 extended
117 attributes (EA), like the access control lists (ACL) or
118 the security labels used by SELinux.
119
debbffbc
SP
120Changes between versions 0.4b38 and 0.4b39 (released January 21, 2005)
121======================================================================
35ed8cf8
SP
122
1231. The newly added dump_on_cd_3 example was buggy, replace it
124 with an updated version from Andrew Basterfield
125 <bob@cemetery.homeunix.org>.
b79d20f1 126
30e8407d
SP
1272. Made restore to chdir() back into the initial directory when
128 dumping core while aborting a comparision operation. The
129 previous behaviour was to write the corefile at the root of
130 the directory being compared, which could very well be
131 read only and preventing the corefile generation. Thanks
132 to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
133
b43981b3
SP
1343. Silenced the failure to call fgetflags() when comparing an
135 entry which has no ext2 attributes (as in lsattr()).
136
68415469
SP
1374. Fix a brown paper bug in restore -C which broke restore and
138 caused modifications on the filesystem being compared
139 (directories containing a file with the same name as the
140 directory get renamed to RSTTMP...). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
141 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for finding the bug and helping me
142 reproduce it.
143
18dc6e86
SP
1445. Made restore -C force the -N flag (no writing allowed on
145 the disk) in order to prevent more bugs like the above one.
146
cdd136ec
SP
147Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
148=====================================================================
b79d20f1
SP
149
1501. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
151 Thanks to Eric Raymond <esr@thyrsus.com> for the patch.
d7783603 152
0556ca22
SP
1532. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
154 on which one is available at configure time.
155
7d422735
SP
1563. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
157 dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
158 <sbonds@users.sourceforge.net> for the bug report.
159
585ca01a
SP
1604. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
161 (excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
162 file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
163
241ddca3
SP
1645. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
165 due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
166 Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
167 submitting the bug and testing the fix.
168
47acd076
SP
1696. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
170 link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
171 Thanks to Kyle Wilson <kyle.wilson@amd.com> for reporting the
172 bug.
173
741eb204
SP
1747. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
175 The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
176 restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
177 entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <bristuccia@starentnetworks.com>
178 for reporting the bug.
179
a55ce914
SP
1808. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
181 attributes into the comparision.
182
1839. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
184 be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
185 extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
186 support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA
187 patch.
188
498a402f
SP
189Changes between versions 0.4b36 and 0.4b37 (released July 7, 2004)
190==================================================================
d7783603
SP
191
1921. Added the --enable-staticz configure option which enables
193 dump and restore to be linked with static versions of
194 libz and libbz2 (and dynamic versions of all other libraries).
195 This will make Debian users happy, because libz and libbz2
196 were the only needed libraries living in /usr, all the
197 others live in /lib. In case of system emergency, it is
198 better not to have to rely on an extra filesystem.
199 Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> for the suggestion.
e0267986 200
b3f55532
SP
2012. Fix compilation on (at least the Linux Debian port to) AMD64.
202 (<ext2fs/ext2_types.h> defines some types (__s64 and __u64)
203 that are also defined by <linux/types.h> (<asm/types.h>) and
204 they conflict).
205
1f2c193e
SP
2063. Make dump's reading of the dumpdates file a bit more robust,
207 preventing dump from crashing when the dumpdates file has
208 been modified by hand.
209
e1e4be20
SP
2104. Fixed some offset calculations in dump code which could
211 lead to "bread lseek errors" on large filesystems. Thanks
212 to Bruce Lowekamp <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for
213 reporting this bug and debugging the issue.
214
c9e4e868
SP
2155. Made dump use the blkid library when searching for devices
216 by label or uuid instead of dump's own routines.
217
97be3358
SP
2186. Corrected a bug in dump where a wrong LABEL=... line in
219 /etc/fstab could prevent dump from dumping unrelated
220 filesystems. Thanks to Bruce Lowekamp
221 <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
222
ddf54486
SP
223Changes between versions 0.4b35 and 0.4b36 (released April 21, 2004)
224====================================================================
e0267986
SP
225
2261. Fixed dump compilation with old gcc versions. Thanks to
227 Mike Castle <dalgoda@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
8ad151aa 228
75654eee
SP
2292. Fixed some warnings (howmany, roundup, powerof2 redefined)
230 when compiling against a recent glibc version.
231
43e6ea49
SP
2323. Fixed a bug in restore preventing the read of a dump tape
233 written with Solaris 7 ufsdump. Thanks to Patrick Higgins
234 <phiggins@transzap.com> for reporting the bug and providing
235 the test case.
236
d435f57f
SP
2374. Changed dump to enable the creation of volumes of different
238 sizes in a single run (make -B accept a list of values).
239 Patch contributed by Florian Zumbiehl <florz@gmx.de>.
240
e1ba02ef
SP
2415. Use the glibc provided minor() and major() macros instead
242 of our own bitmask implementation. This should be safe for
243 when the major/minor namespace will migrate to 32 bits.
244 Thanks to Zhang Jun <zhangjun@nanjing-fnst.com> for reporting
245 the bug.
246
ae6919a7
SP
2476. Made explicit in the dump man page that dump will not create
248 a remote file, it will only write to an already existing one.
249
4acaf865
SP
2507. Another try at making size estimates better again.
251
956756f2
SP
2528. Put back the inconditional running of the end-of-tape
253 script which was changed in 0.434 to be run only when -M
254 or multiple -f were NOT specified. Some users rely on this
255 feature even when it is combined with -M/-f.
256
e4e31ce9
SP
2579. Fixed restore when restoring huge backups (where rstdir...
258 temporary files are over 2GB). Thanks to
259 Raphael Jaffey <rjaffey@artic.edu> for reporting this,
260 debugging the issue and making the patch.
261
cc7747eb
SP
26210. Made restore understand FreeBSD UFS2 tapes. Thanks to
263 David <vrtin@users.sourceforge.net> for submitting the bug
264 and providing a test case.
265
28ba5cae
SP
26611. Made dump work with an arbitrary integer level (no more 10
267 levels only limitation). Thanks to Matthew
268 <msvincen@midway.uchicago.edu> for the patch.
269
dcac75e9
SP
270Changes between versions 0.4b34 and 0.4b35 (released December 21, 2003)
271=======================================================================
8ad151aa
SP
272
2731. Added a note in the dump man page saying that the default
274 blocksize can be 32 if -d is used with a high density argument.
275 Thanks to Antonios Christofides <A.Christofides@itia.ntua.gr>
276 for the patch.
ed194aec 277
008af419
SP
2782. Fixed configure to correctly understand CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS,
279 LDFLAGS environment variables. Thanks to Arcady Genkin
280 <antipode@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
281
0d4dfd07 2823. Made -e/-E options of dump accept an unlimited number of inodes
67793be0
SP
283 to be excluded, rather than a hardcoded maximum. Thanks to
284 Dietrich Rothe <d-rothe@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
285
0d4dfd07
SP
2864. Updated the autoconf system to 2.50. Forced the -D_BSD_SOURCE
287 and -D_USE_BSD_SIGNAL defines in configure in order to solve
288 64bit build problems because quad_t is redifined with a
289 different signature. Thanks to Mike Harris <mharris@redhat.com>
290 for reporting this bug.
291
5d8d264f 2925. Made restore build on Solaris, making possible to
d1925e0c
SP
293 restore Linux's "enhanced" tapes. Thanks to Uwe Gohlke
294 <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.
295
2966. Made an extension in the dump tape format capable of saving
297 MacOSX specific inode extensions. Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de>
298 wrote the extension and contributed the restore code back
299 into this codebase. The same extension mechanism will be
300 used in the future to save ACLs...
301
3027. Made rmt work correctly with regard to QFA and local/remote
303 files and tapes. The remote access will however work only
304 when the dump provided rmt version is used. If you want to
305 use another rmt server, please do not use the QFA feature.
5d8d264f 306 Thanks to Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.

SP
310
3111. Fixed the INSTALL file to reflect the actual install paths.
312 Thanks to David Ronis <ronis@ronispc.chem.mcgill.ca> for
313 reporting the bug.
4bb009da 314
d3e542e7
SP
3152. Fixed the configure script to only check for headers presence
316 instead of trying to compile them. This should fix issues
317 with old build environments. Thanks to Kari Lempiainen
318 <kari@funky.pp.fi> for reporting the bug.
319
1176b3c1
SP
3203. Fixed restore to correctly ignore sockets when comparing
321 a dump (as socket cannot be properly restored anyway). Thanks
2d32c89c
SP
322 to Gunther Reiszig <gunther@mit.edu> for reporting the bug.
323
3244. Fixed restore to correctly access the archive file (-A argument)
325 even when using a remote tape. Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
326 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
1176b3c1 327
900bffdb
SP
3285. Fixed (again) handling of long (largefile) seeks in rmt.
329 Thanks to Fabrice Bellet <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting
330 the bug.
331
6d834d25
SP
3326. Fixed restore corner case when dealing with large block sizes
333 dump is able to write now (-b 1024). Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
334 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
335
cdef84ca
SP
3367. Fixed a bug preventing dump to access a filesystem having
337 a label exactly 16 bytes in length. Thanks to <minduni@ti-edu.ch>
338 for reporting the bug.
339
3458b64d
SP
3408. Made dump store dump dates using explicit timezones, fixing a
341 problem with incremental dumps if the timezone is modified
342 between the dumps. Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for
343 the bug report and the patch.
344
2be77799
SP
3459. Fixed a bug encountered when dumping individual files (not full
346 filesystems or directories) and dangling symbolic links happen
347 to be in the list of files. For as far as dump is concerned,
348 dangling symbolic links are allowed, and are dumped as is.
349 Thanks to Jin-su Ahn <jsahn@ee.snu.ac.kr> for reporting the
350 bug and providing the fix.
351
c3f69f06
SP
35210. Fixed open and creation modes and permissions for QFA and
353 table-of-contents files in dump and restore. Thanks to
354 Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
355
35611. Fixed the archive file descriptor handling enabling it to be 0.
357 This can happen in some cases when shell redirections are used.
358 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
359
36012. Delayed the opening of archive file until after suid had been
361 dropped (fixing a possible security issue if dump is suid).
362 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
363
36413. Fixed the 'S' command handling in the rmt client part.
365 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
366
36714. Modified the end-of-tape script handling to print out statistics
368 (and stop the timer) before launching the eot script. Also, the eot
369 script does not get run anymore when using -M (which makes sense) or
370 when multiple tapes are listed on the command line
371 (-f tape0,tape1,tapen) (which also makes sense).
372 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
373
e1abc9ce
SP
37415. Relicensed dump/restore under the 'revised' BSD license, as per
375 ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change.
376
206f768c
SP
37716. Added LZO compression to dump. This new compression method has
378 the advantage of being super fast, thus not killing tape streaming
379 on slow machines. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch
380 <jarausch@igpm.rwth-aachen.de> for the patch and to
381 Markus Oberhumer <markus@oberhumer.com> for giving special permission
382 to include his miniLZO project (GPL licensed) in dump/restore.
383
e2392789
SP
38417. Some small buffer overruns fixes in rmt. Thanks to Antonomasia
385 <ant@notatla.demon.co.uk> for reporting the bugs.
386
cdfe1392
SP
38718. Added a special rmt version which can do encryption when writing
388 to tape. Read examples/encrypted_rmt/README for details on
389 how to enable and configure it. Thanks to Ken Lalonde
390 <ken@globalremit.com> for the patch.
391
61e9d4ff
SP
39219. Made dump work with 2.5 kernel end of tape early warning semantics.
393 Thanks to Kai Makisara <Kai.Makisara@kolumbus.fi> for the patch.
394
8c95cc30
SP
39520. Fixed a bug which caused dump -w|-W not to work anymore, because
396 the fs_freq and fs_passno fields in /etc/mtab are always set
397 to 0 0. Thanks to Trent Piepho <xyzzy@speakeasy.org> for
398 reporting the bug.

402
4031. Added a note in the restore man page clarifying the question
404 'set the permissions on the current directory ?' asked by
405 restore at the end of treatment in -i and -x modes.
d86089d1 406
c898ca7a
SP
4072. Fixed the endianess issues when reading compressed tapes.
408 Thanks to Dark Force <daq4th@users.sourceforge.net> for
409 reporting this bug and providing test cases.
410
a028bdc8
SP
4113. Fixed the "ACL won't be dumped" warning message (which showed
412 an extra, unrelated error message). Thanks to Dragan Krnic
413 <dkrnic@lycos.com> for reporting this bug.
414
a8a6a503 4154. Made dump look first into /etc/mtab, then into /etc/fstab
1a886de8
SP
416 when searching for filesystem paths. Also fixed some problems
417 caused by binding mounts or multiple block device mounts.
418 Thanks to Matus Uhlar <uhlar@fantomas.sk>, Elliott Mitchell

4235. Made dump's -I option accept the value '0' meaning all the
424 read errors will be ignored. This can be useful when running
425 dump from unattended sessions (like cron jobs). Thanks to
426 John I Wang <jiwang@users.sourceforge.net> for the suggestion.

4286. Fixed the output of dump to indicate 'blocks' instead of
429 'tape blocks' in the various messages (blocks are always
430 1 Kilobyte, tape blocks are 1 BK * '-b' argument), and
431 made it clearly print the current blocksize at the start of
432 a dump. Thanks to Michal Szymanski <msz@astrouw.edu.pl> for
433 the suggestions.

4378. Fixed build with very old versions of libext2fs, where
438 EXT2_FT_* constants were undefined.

4409. Made dump accept the dumpdates path on the command line
441 (-D file option) instead of using only the hardcoded one.
442 Thanks to Piete Brooks <pb22@users.sourceforge.net> for the
443 suggestion.

44510. Enabled rmt, LFS, readline, QFA options by default in
446 ./configure. Updated the configure process (new versions
447 of config.guess, config.sub etc).

4521. Changed dump to use fcntl(F_SETLK) style locking instead
453 of flock() when locking the dumpdates file. With the old
454 locking scheme, a local user having read rights on the
455 dumpdates file could be able to do a Denial of Service attack
456 on dump. In order to lock the dumpdates file with the new
457 scheme, the user would need to have write access on the file.
458 Thanks to Richard Johnson <Richard.Johnson3@ey.com> for
459 reporting the bug (originally a bugtraq post).

4612. Fixed interactive 'ls' which caused spurious errors warnings
462 about 'undefined filetypes' detected. Thanks to Jorgen Ostling

464 bug.

4663. Fixed dump's estimate when dealing with sparse inodes.

SP
4684. Modified dump to allow setting a blocksize bigger than 32kB
469 (raised the limit to 1024kB), because newer hardware needs
470 this for proper operation. Thanks to Dirk Traenapp
471 <dtraenapp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this.

4735. Fixed a bug causing Dump to stop and report an error if an
474 inode number in the exclude file was followed by some amount
475 of whitespace. Thanks to Jeffrey Sofferin
476 <sofferin@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this bug.

SP
4786. Fixed a bug which caused restore, in some particular cases,
479 to ask some 'scary' questions and leave a bunch of RSTTMP
480 directories behind when restoring incremental tapes. Thanks
481 to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for reporting this bug and
482 providing the test cases.
483
c993d83a
SP
4847. Changed the wording when inodes are excluded from dump:
485 replaced 'Added inode 7 to exclude list' with
486 'Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump', as suggested
487 by Elliott Mitchell <ehem@m5p.com> in a Debian bug report.

4991. Made dump print out the ext2 logical block number in case of a read
500 error, which can be given as an argument to debugfs' ncheck command,
501 in order to find out the affected inode. Added note about this
502 usage in dump's man page.

505 endian machines with very old versions of dump. The patch was
506 contributed by George Helffrich <george@geology.bristol.ac.uk>.

509 and compression. Thanks to Georg Lippold

5124. Added a new set of examples in dump_on_cd_2 directory, based
513 on dump_on_cd examples but somewhat enhanced, supporting DVD
514 media, and localized in english and german. Thanks to
515 Georg Lippold <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for the new scripts.

5175. Made dump save 32 bit UID/GID. Internally, this was achieved
518 by switching from the old BSD inode format to the new BSD
519 inode format, which means that the tape format was changed.
520 However, since all restore versions out there should
521 transparently support both inode formats, the change should
522 have no side effects. Thanks to John Yu <jky@cs.bu.edu> for
523 reporting the bug.

SP
5338. Rewrote entirely the man pages using the tmac.an macro
534 package (Linux man page format) instead of the original BSD
535 format. They should be now cleaner and easier to modify.

541 non Linux clients were misinterpreted. The description of the problem
542 (incompatible numbering in Linux mtio opcodes) is documented at
