3Changes between versions 0.4b42 and 0.4b43 (released ?????????????)
4===================================================================
5
61. Fix a bug in dump making impossible to handle large toc files
7 (> 2 GB). Thanks to X DUGi <xdugi@users.sourceforge.net> for
8 reporting the bug (Sourceforge bug #2820629)
9eacfdf0 9
4cef8778
SP
102. Fix 'restore -x' in multi-volume mode, which caused files being
11 spanned on the first and second volumes to be incorrectly extracted.
12 Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for reporting the bug.
13 (there may be several bug reports about this issue, including
14 Sourceforge bug #2117008, RedHat bugs #232415 and #444958).
15
572eed31
SP
163. Remove -lselinux -lsepol from the standard libraries list,
17 they shouldn't be needed if selinux is not enabled in dump
18 (this also fixes a build failure when selinux libraries are
19 not installed).
20
2e555f41
SP
214. Fix restoration of extended attributes of fifos and device nodes.
22 Thanks to Igor Zhbanov <izh1979@gmail.com> for the bug report.

25===================================================================
9eacfdf0
SP
26
271. Fix printout of the 'Connection to' message in dump/restore.
28 Thanks to Dale Wiles <dwiles@users.sourceforge.net> for the
29 bug report and its fix.
b630baf0 30
c43794b1
SP
312. Fix dump -w/-W output for filesystems having the last backup
32 level equal to 0. Thanks to Pascal Bouchareine
33 <kalou@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
34
7f7d329e
SP
353. Enable restore to handle restoring onto a different SELinux
36 policy from the dump. Thanks to Tony Nelson
37 <tony_nelson@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
38 (see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189845
39 for details)
40
db80efa5
SP
414. Fix EA set failures when restoring immutable files. Thanks
42 to Andrew Kroeger for the patch.
43
4a9a33ef
SP
445. Fix "mode file too large" errors when restoring huge backups.
45 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
46 report.
47
d2816d4c
SP
486. Add the ability to link against libtinfo library if present,
49 instead of libtermcap or libncurses libraries. Thanks to
50 Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
51
03dbfe05
SP
527. When comparing a backup, do not consider to be an error the fact
53 that we encounter files created while dump was in progress.
54 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
55 report.
56
d93c86b3
SP
578. Force '-a' to be the default value when running 'restore -C'.
58 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
59 report.
60
b35abb32 619. Many improvements to the 'cron_dump_to_disk' example.
a405c61d
SP
62 Thanks to Aaron S. Hawley <ashawley@users.sourceforge.net> for
63 the patch.
64
eb1636e9
SP
6510. Fix the QFA generation when extended attributes are backuped
66 along with the inodes. Prior to this fix, the entries for
67 some inodes may get corrupted (duplicated entries or incorrect
68 ones), making the QFA file unusable for repositionning in
69 restore. Many thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com>
70 for the bug report and the testing of the fix.
71
11997d3b
SP
7211. Fix EA restoration in debug mode (Sourceforge bug #1986216).
73
34ec103e
SP
7412. Stefan Auracher <star7@onlinehome.de> noticed that the Tower
75 of Hanoi backup strategy documented in the man page wasn't
76 actually based on the Tower of Hanoi algorithm. The man page
77 was updated accordingly.
78
d322203c
SP
7913. Fix missing level information from dump output when using
80 the default level (RedHat bug #493635). Thanks to Adam Tkac
81 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
82
f39dae99
SP
8314. Fix the dump man page to reflect the fact that the default
84 dump level is 0 not 9 (RedHat bug #356121). Thanks to Adam Tkac
85 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
86
aeb0b047
SP
8715. Fixed a few spelling errors in the man pages (RedHat bug #489853).
88 Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
89
650071c1
SP
9016. Fixed restore man page and program usage which incorrectly stated
91 that -P and -A were both allowed in the same invocation (RedHat
92 bug #490627). Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
93
b8db960b
SP
9417. Use sys_clone under Linux to share I/O contexts between dump
95 processes, thus drastically increasing the performance of dump
96 under CFQ (which is the default I/O scheduler used in a number of
97 distributions). Thanks to Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> for the
98 patch.
99
8fa3e5e7
SP
10018. Add (preliminary) ext4 support - thanks to libext2fs which does
101 all the job for us. Thanks to Gertjan van Wingerde
102 <gwingerde@gmail.com> for the patch.
103
370f48b6 104Changes between versions 0.4b40 and 0.4b41 (released January 2, 2006)
54ebfc01 105=====================================================================
b630baf0
SP
106
1071. Fix restore of dumped Access Control Lists. The previous
108 code for EA works fine, but ACLs needed conversion from the
109 ext2/3 disk format to posix_acl format before restoring.
f30c53e5 110
cb6d3f79
SP
1112. Fix some issues with restoration of EA on big endian
112 platforms.
113
26ce8fc8
SP
1143. Fix restore when the symtab is over 2GB in size.
115
df3d2ef9
SP
1164. Made the directory hash indexing an optional feature,
117 accessible by the '-H' option of restore, and disable it
118 by default.
119
0c78942b
SP
1205. Fixed dump to not include extended attributes information
121 in the toc (archive) file which confused restore -t.
122
84182f10
SP
123Changes between versions 0.4b39 and 0.4b40 (released May 2, 2005)
124=================================================================
f30c53e5
SP
125
1261. Changed restore to emit warnings (instead of emitting a fatal
127 error) if a file (or a directory) is unavailable for a
128 comparision (if the user doesn't have the necessary permissions
129 to access it for example). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
130 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
35ed8cf8 131
979da669
SP
1322. Re-done the 'do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
133 (excluded from dump)' feature. The previous implementation
134 worked well for excluded directories but not for regular files.
135 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
136 report.
137
1ba0c4bb
SP
1383. Fixed a bug in dump where the tape size was miscalculated when
139 the user used -d/-s to specify the tape characteristics. Thanks
140 to Philip Goisman <goisman@physics.arizona.edu> for reporting
141 the bug.
142
c21722b0
SP
1434. Fixed another bug introduced in restore with the hashtree
144 implementation. This one caused restore to stop saying
145 "removenode: non-empty directory" in some cases.
146
cca7148b
SP
1475. Added support for dumping and restoring ext2/3 extended
148 attributes (EA), like the access control lists (ACL) or
149 the security labels used by SELinux.
150
debbffbc
SP
151Changes between versions 0.4b38 and 0.4b39 (released January 21, 2005)
152======================================================================
35ed8cf8
SP
153
1541. The newly added dump_on_cd_3 example was buggy, replace it
155 with an updated version from Andrew Basterfield
156 <bob@cemetery.homeunix.org>.
b79d20f1 157
30e8407d
SP
1582. Made restore to chdir() back into the initial directory when
159 dumping core while aborting a comparision operation. The
160 previous behaviour was to write the corefile at the root of
161 the directory being compared, which could very well be
162 read only and preventing the corefile generation. Thanks
163 to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
164
b43981b3
SP
1653. Silenced the failure to call fgetflags() when comparing an
166 entry which has no ext2 attributes (as in lsattr()).
167
68415469
SP
1684. Fix a brown paper bug in restore -C which broke restore and
169 caused modifications on the filesystem being compared
170 (directories containing a file with the same name as the
171 directory get renamed to RSTTMP...). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
172 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for finding the bug and helping me
173 reproduce it.
174
18dc6e86
SP
1755. Made restore -C force the -N flag (no writing allowed on
176 the disk) in order to prevent more bugs like the above one.
177
cdd136ec
SP
178Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
179=====================================================================
b79d20f1
SP
180
1811. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
182 Thanks to Eric Raymond <esr@thyrsus.com> for the patch.
d7783603 183
0556ca22
SP
1842. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
185 on which one is available at configure time.
186
7d422735
SP
1873. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
188 dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
189 <sbonds@users.sourceforge.net> for the bug report.
190
585ca01a
SP
1914. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
192 (excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
193 file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
194
241ddca3
SP
1955. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
196 due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
197 Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
198 submitting the bug and testing the fix.
199
47acd076
SP
2006. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
201 link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
202 Thanks to Kyle Wilson <kyle.wilson@amd.com> for reporting the
203 bug.
204
741eb204
SP
2057. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
206 The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
207 restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
208 entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <bristuccia@starentnetworks.com>
209 for reporting the bug.
210
a55ce914
SP
2118. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
212 attributes into the comparision.
213
2149. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
215 be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
216 extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
217 support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA
218 patch.
219
498a402f
SP
220Changes between versions 0.4b36 and 0.4b37 (released July 7, 2004)
221==================================================================
d7783603
SP
222
2231. Added the --enable-staticz configure option which enables
224 dump and restore to be linked with static versions of
225 libz and libbz2 (and dynamic versions of all other libraries).
226 This will make Debian users happy, because libz and libbz2
227 were the only needed libraries living in /usr, all the
228 others live in /lib. In case of system emergency, it is
229 better not to have to rely on an extra filesystem.
230 Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> for the suggestion.
e0267986 231
b3f55532
SP
2322. Fix compilation on (at least the Linux Debian port to) AMD64.
233 (<ext2fs/ext2_types.h> defines some types (__s64 and __u64)
234 that are also defined by <linux/types.h> (<asm/types.h>) and
235 they conflict).
236
1f2c193e
SP
2373. Make dump's reading of the dumpdates file a bit more robust,
238 preventing dump from crashing when the dumpdates file has
239 been modified by hand.
240
e1e4be20
SP
2414. Fixed some offset calculations in dump code which could
242 lead to "bread lseek errors" on large filesystems. Thanks
243 to Bruce Lowekamp <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for
244 reporting this bug and debugging the issue.
245
c9e4e868
SP
2465. Made dump use the blkid library when searching for devices
247 by label or uuid instead of dump's own routines.
248
97be3358
SP
2496. Corrected a bug in dump where a wrong LABEL=... line in
250 /etc/fstab could prevent dump from dumping unrelated
251 filesystems. Thanks to Bruce Lowekamp
252 <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
253
ddf54486
SP
254Changes between versions 0.4b35 and 0.4b36 (released April 21, 2004)
255====================================================================
e0267986
SP
256
2571. Fixed dump compilation with old gcc versions. Thanks to
258 Mike Castle <dalgoda@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
8ad151aa 259
75654eee
SP
2602. Fixed some warnings (howmany, roundup, powerof2 redefined)
261 when compiling against a recent glibc version.
262
43e6ea49
SP
2633. Fixed a bug in restore preventing the read of a dump tape
264 written with Solaris 7 ufsdump. Thanks to Patrick Higgins
265 <phiggins@transzap.com> for reporting the bug and providing
266 the test case.
267
d435f57f
SP
2684. Changed dump to enable the creation of volumes of different
269 sizes in a single run (make -B accept a list of values).
270 Patch contributed by Florian Zumbiehl <florz@gmx.de>.
271
e1ba02ef
SP
2725. Use the glibc provided minor() and major() macros instead
273 of our own bitmask implementation. This should be safe for
274 when the major/minor namespace will migrate to 32 bits.
275 Thanks to Zhang Jun <zhangjun@nanjing-fnst.com> for reporting
276 the bug.
277
ae6919a7
SP
2786. Made explicit in the dump man page that dump will not create
279 a remote file, it will only write to an already existing one.
280
4acaf865
SP
2817. Another try at making size estimates better again.
282
956756f2
SP
2838. Put back the inconditional running of the end-of-tape
284 script which was changed in 0.434 to be run only when -M
285 or multiple -f were NOT specified. Some users rely on this
286 feature even when it is combined with -M/-f.
287
e4e31ce9
SP
2889. Fixed restore when restoring huge backups (where rstdir...
289 temporary files are over 2GB). Thanks to
290 Raphael Jaffey <rjaffey@artic.edu> for reporting this,
291 debugging the issue and making the patch.
292
cc7747eb
SP
29310. Made restore understand FreeBSD UFS2 tapes. Thanks to
294 David <vrtin@users.sourceforge.net> for submitting the bug
295 and providing a test case.
296
28ba5cae
SP
29711. Made dump work with an arbitrary integer level (no more 10
298 levels only limitation). Thanks to Matthew
299 <msvincen@midway.uchicago.edu> for the patch.
300
dcac75e9
SP
301Changes between versions 0.4b34 and 0.4b35 (released December 21, 2003)
302=======================================================================
8ad151aa
SP
303
3041. Added a note in the dump man page saying that the default
305 blocksize can be 32 if -d is used with a high density argument.
306 Thanks to Antonios Christofides <A.Christofides@itia.ntua.gr>
307 for the patch.
ed194aec 308
008af419
SP
3092. Fixed configure to correctly understand CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS,
310 LDFLAGS environment variables. Thanks to Arcady Genkin
311 <antipode@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
312
0d4dfd07 3133. Made -e/-E options of dump accept an unlimited number of inodes
67793be0
SP
314 to be excluded, rather than a hardcoded maximum. Thanks to
315 Dietrich Rothe <d-rothe@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
316
0d4dfd07
SP
3174. Updated the autoconf system to 2.50. Forced the -D_BSD_SOURCE
318 and -D_USE_BSD_SIGNAL defines in configure in order to solve
319 64bit build problems because quad_t is redifined with a
320 different signature. Thanks to Mike Harris <mharris@redhat.com>
321 for reporting this bug.
322
5d8d264f 3235. Made restore build on Solaris, making possible to
d1925e0c
SP
324 restore Linux's "enhanced" tapes. Thanks to Uwe Gohlke
325 <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.
326
3276. Made an extension in the dump tape format capable of saving
328 MacOSX specific inode extensions. Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de>
329 wrote the extension and contributed the restore code back
330 into this codebase. The same extension mechanism will be
331 used in the future to save ACLs...
332
3337. Made rmt work correctly with regard to QFA and local/remote
334 files and tapes. The remote access will however work only
335 when the dump provided rmt version is used. If you want to
336 use another rmt server, please do not use the QFA feature.
5d8d264f 337 Thanks to Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.

339Changes between versions 0.4b33 and 0.4b34 (released April 18, 2003)
340====================================================================
ed194aec
SP
341
3421. Fixed the INSTALL file to reflect the actual install paths.
343 Thanks to David Ronis <ronis@ronispc.chem.mcgill.ca> for
344 reporting the bug.
4bb009da 345
d3e542e7
SP
3462. Fixed the configure script to only check for headers presence
347 instead of trying to compile them. This should fix issues
348 with old build environments. Thanks to Kari Lempiainen
349 <kari@funky.pp.fi> for reporting the bug.
350
1176b3c1
SP
3513. Fixed restore to correctly ignore sockets when comparing
352 a dump (as socket cannot be properly restored anyway). Thanks
2d32c89c
SP
353 to Gunther Reiszig <gunther@mit.edu> for reporting the bug.
354
3554. Fixed restore to correctly access the archive file (-A argument)
356 even when using a remote tape. Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
357 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
1176b3c1 358
900bffdb
SP
3595. Fixed (again) handling of long (largefile) seeks in rmt.
360 Thanks to Fabrice Bellet <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting
361 the bug.
362
6d834d25
SP
3636. Fixed restore corner case when dealing with large block sizes
364 dump is able to write now (-b 1024). Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
365 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
366
cdef84ca
SP
3677. Fixed a bug preventing dump to access a filesystem having
368 a label exactly 16 bytes in length. Thanks to <minduni@ti-edu.ch>
369 for reporting the bug.
370
3458b64d
SP
3718. Made dump store dump dates using explicit timezones, fixing a
372 problem with incremental dumps if the timezone is modified
373 between the dumps. Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for
374 the bug report and the patch.
375
2be77799
SP
3769. Fixed a bug encountered when dumping individual files (not full
377 filesystems or directories) and dangling symbolic links happen
378 to be in the list of files. For as far as dump is concerned,
379 dangling symbolic links are allowed, and are dumped as is.
380 Thanks to Jin-su Ahn <jsahn@ee.snu.ac.kr> for reporting the
381 bug and providing the fix.
382
c3f69f06
SP
38310. Fixed open and creation modes and permissions for QFA and
384 table-of-contents files in dump and restore. Thanks to
385 Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
386
38711. Fixed the archive file descriptor handling enabling it to be 0.
388 This can happen in some cases when shell redirections are used.
389 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
390
39112. Delayed the opening of archive file until after suid had been
392 dropped (fixing a possible security issue if dump is suid).
393 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
394
39513. Fixed the 'S' command handling in the rmt client part.
396 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
397
39814. Modified the end-of-tape script handling to print out statistics
399 (and stop the timer) before launching the eot script. Also, the eot
400 script does not get run anymore when using -M (which makes sense) or
401 when multiple tapes are listed on the command line
402 (-f tape0,tape1,tapen) (which also makes sense).
403 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
404
e1abc9ce
SP
40515. Relicensed dump/restore under the 'revised' BSD license, as per
406 ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change.
407
206f768c
SP
40816. Added LZO compression to dump. This new compression method has
409 the advantage of being super fast, thus not killing tape streaming
410 on slow machines. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch
411 <jarausch@igpm.rwth-aachen.de> for the patch and to
412 Markus Oberhumer <markus@oberhumer.com> for giving special permission
413 to include his miniLZO project (GPL licensed) in dump/restore.
414
e2392789
SP
41517. Some small buffer overruns fixes in rmt. Thanks to Antonomasia
416 <ant@notatla.demon.co.uk> for reporting the bugs.
417
cdfe1392
SP
41818. Added a special rmt version which can do encryption when writing
419 to tape. Read examples/encrypted_rmt/README for details on
420 how to enable and configure it. Thanks to Ken Lalonde
421 <ken@globalremit.com> for the patch.
422
61e9d4ff

424 Thanks to Kai Makisara <Kai.Makisara@kolumbus.fi> for the patch.

SP
42620. Fixed a bug which caused dump -w|-W not to work anymore, because
427 the fs_freq and fs_passno fields in /etc/mtab are always set
428 to 0 0. Thanks to Trent Piepho <xyzzy@speakeasy.org> for
429 reporting the bug.

4341. Added a note in the restore man page clarifying the question
435 'set the permissions on the current directory ?' asked by
436 restore at the end of treatment in -i and -x modes.

4382. Fixed the endianess issues when reading compressed tapes.
439 Thanks to Dark Force <daq4th@users.sourceforge.net> for
440 reporting this bug and providing test cases.
441
a028bdc8
SP
4423. Fixed the "ACL won't be dumped" warning message (which showed
443 an extra, unrelated error message). Thanks to Dragan Krnic
444 <dkrnic@lycos.com> for reporting this bug.
445
a8a6a503 4464. Made dump look first into /etc/mtab, then into /etc/fstab

447 when searching for filesystem paths. Also fixed some problems
448 caused by binding mounts or multiple block device mounts.

a8a6a503
SP
450 <ehem@m5p.com>, Greg Edwards <gedwards@users.sourceforge.net>,
451 Brian Hoy <brian.hoy@opus.co.nz>. (fixes Debian bugs #147086
452 and #160305, Sourceforge bugs #618699 and #679832).

3211c85b
SP
4545. Made dump's -I option accept the value '0' meaning all the
455 read errors will be ignored. This can be useful when running
456 dump from unattended sessions (like cron jobs). Thanks to
457 John I Wang <jiwang@users.sourceforge.net> for the suggestion.
458
7fcd6df5
SP
4596. Fixed the output of dump to indicate 'blocks' instead of
460 'tape blocks' in the various messages (blocks are always
461 1 Kilobyte, tape blocks are 1 BK * '-b' argument), and
462 made it clearly print the current blocksize at the start of
463 a dump. Thanks to Michal Szymanski <msz@astrouw.edu.pl> for
464 the suggestions.

SP
4667. Made rmt understand long (largefiles) seeks.
467
dbb649e8
SP
4688. Fixed build with very old versions of libext2fs, where
469 EXT2_FT_* constants were undefined.
470
c92d83ae
SP
4719. Made dump accept the dumpdates path on the command line
472 (-D file option) instead of using only the hardcoded one.
473 Thanks to Piete Brooks <pb22@users.sourceforge.net> for the
474 suggestion.
475
1daf06b9
SP
47610. Enabled rmt, LFS, readline, QFA options by default in
477 ./configure. Updated the configure process (new versions
478 of config.guess, config.sub etc).

d86089d1
SP
482
4831. Changed dump to use fcntl(F_SETLK) style locking instead
484 of flock() when locking the dumpdates file. With the old
485 locking scheme, a local user having read rights on the
486 dumpdates file could be able to do a Denial of Service attack
487 on dump. In order to lock the dumpdates file with the new
488 scheme, the user would need to have write access on the file.
489 Thanks to Richard Johnson <Richard.Johnson3@ey.com> for
490 reporting the bug (originally a bugtraq post).
ba3af39e 491
2f562f4e
SP
4922. Fixed interactive 'ls' which caused spurious errors warnings
493 about 'undefined filetypes' detected. Thanks to Jorgen Ostling
494 <jorgen_ostling@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this
495 bug.
496
1c736b78
SP
4973. Fixed dump's estimate when dealing with sparse inodes.
498
876861d2
SP
4994. Modified dump to allow setting a blocksize bigger than 32kB
500 (raised the limit to 1024kB), because newer hardware needs
501 this for proper operation. Thanks to Dirk Traenapp
502 <dtraenapp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this.
503
b8d848c9
SP
5045. Fixed a bug causing Dump to stop and report an error if an
505 inode number in the exclude file was followed by some amount
506 of whitespace. Thanks to Jeffrey Sofferin
507 <sofferin@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this bug.
508
e531c442
SP
5096. Fixed a bug which caused restore, in some particular cases,
510 to ask some 'scary' questions and leave a bunch of RSTTMP
511 directories behind when restoring incremental tapes. Thanks
512 to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for reporting this bug and
513 providing the test cases.
514
c993d83a
SP
5157. Changed the wording when inodes are excluded from dump:
516 replaced 'Added inode 7 to exclude list' with
517 'Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump', as suggested
518 by Elliott Mitchell <ehem@m5p.com> in a Debian bug report.

524 rmt) which I broke in 0.4b29. Thanks to Eros Albertazzi

529
5301. Made dump print out the ext2 logical block number in case of a read
531 error, which can be given as an argument to debugfs' ncheck command,
532 in order to find out the affected inode. Added note about this
533 usage in dump's man page.

534
5352. Fixed a problem in restore when reading tapes written on big
536 endian machines with very old versions of dump. The patch was
537 contributed by George Helffrich <george@geology.bristol.ac.uk>.

540 and compression. Thanks to Georg Lippold
541 <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
a9c5ed48
SP
542
5434. Added a new set of examples in dump_on_cd_2 directory, based
544 on dump_on_cd examples but somewhat enhanced, supporting DVD
545 media, and localized in english and german. Thanks to
546 Georg Lippold <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for the new scripts.
547
9ca70cf6
SP
5485. Made dump save 32 bit UID/GID. Internally, this was achieved
549 by switching from the old BSD inode format to the new BSD
550 inode format, which means that the tape format was changed.
551 However, since all restore versions out there should
552 transparently support both inode formats, the change should
553 have no side effects. Thanks to John Yu <jky@cs.bu.edu> for
554 reporting the bug.

555
5566. Fixed a lot of warnings in the code shown when compiling
557 with 'gcc -W'. Thanks to Matthias Andree
558 <matthias.andree@stud.uni-dortmund.de> for reporting this.

561 Eric S. Raymond <esr@minx.thyrsus.com> for submitting the
562 patch.
563
153f9a83
SP
5648. Rewrote entirely the man pages using the tmac.an macro
565 package (Linux man page format) instead of the original BSD
566 format. They should be now cleaner and easier to modify.

5711. Fixed a problem in the rmt ioctl command, where ioctl's issued from
572 non Linux clients were misinterpreted. The description of the problem
573 (incompatible numbering in Linux mtio opcodes) is documented at
574 ftp://ftp.fokus.gmd.de/pub/unix/star/README.mtio . Thanks to
