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).

b630baf0 22
c43794b1
SP
232. Fix dump -w/-W output for filesystems having the last backup
24 level equal to 0. Thanks to Pascal Bouchareine
25 <kalou@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
26
7f7d329e
SP
273. Enable restore to handle restoring onto a different SELinux
28 policy from the dump. Thanks to Tony Nelson
29 <tony_nelson@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
30 (see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189845
31 for details)
32
db80efa5
SP
334. Fix EA set failures when restoring immutable files. Thanks
34 to Andrew Kroeger for the patch.
35
4a9a33ef
SP
365. Fix "mode file too large" errors when restoring huge backups.
37 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
38 report.
39
d2816d4c
SP
406. Add the ability to link against libtinfo library if present,
41 instead of libtermcap or libncurses libraries. Thanks to
42 Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
43
03dbfe05
SP
447. When comparing a backup, do not consider to be an error the fact
45 that we encounter files created while dump was in progress.
46 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
47 report.
48
d93c86b3
SP
498. Force '-a' to be the default value when running 'restore -C'.
50 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
51 report.
52
b35abb32 539. Many improvements to the 'cron_dump_to_disk' example.
a405c61d
SP
54 Thanks to Aaron S. Hawley <ashawley@users.sourceforge.net> for
55 the patch.
56
eb1636e9
SP
5710. Fix the QFA generation when extended attributes are backuped
58 along with the inodes. Prior to this fix, the entries for
59 some inodes may get corrupted (duplicated entries or incorrect
60 ones), making the QFA file unusable for repositionning in
61 restore. Many thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com>
62 for the bug report and the testing of the fix.
63
11997d3b
SP
6411. Fix EA restoration in debug mode (Sourceforge bug #1986216).
65
34ec103e
SP
6612. Stefan Auracher <star7@onlinehome.de> noticed that the Tower
67 of Hanoi backup strategy documented in the man page wasn't
68 actually based on the Tower of Hanoi algorithm. The man page
69 was updated accordingly.
70
d322203c
SP
7113. Fix missing level information from dump output when using
72 the default level (RedHat bug #493635). Thanks to Adam Tkac
73 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
74
f39dae99
SP
7514. Fix the dump man page to reflect the fact that the default
76 dump level is 0 not 9 (RedHat bug #356121). Thanks to Adam Tkac
77 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
78
aeb0b047
SP
7915. Fixed a few spelling errors in the man pages (RedHat bug #489853).
80 Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
81
650071c1
SP
8216. Fixed restore man page and program usage which incorrectly stated
83 that -P and -A were both allowed in the same invocation (RedHat
84 bug #490627). Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
85
b8db960b
SP
8617. Use sys_clone under Linux to share I/O contexts between dump
87 processes, thus drastically increasing the performance of dump
88 under CFQ (which is the default I/O scheduler used in a number of
89 distributions). Thanks to Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> for the
90 patch.
91
8fa3e5e7
SP
9218. Add (preliminary) ext4 support - thanks to libext2fs which does
93 all the job for us. Thanks to Gertjan van Wingerde
94 <gwingerde@gmail.com> for the patch.
95
370f48b6 96Changes between versions 0.4b40 and 0.4b41 (released January 2, 2006)
54ebfc01 97=====================================================================
b630baf0
SP
98
991. Fix restore of dumped Access Control Lists. The previous
100 code for EA works fine, but ACLs needed conversion from the
101 ext2/3 disk format to posix_acl format before restoring.
f30c53e5 102
cb6d3f79
SP
1032. Fix some issues with restoration of EA on big endian
104 platforms.
105
26ce8fc8
SP
1063. Fix restore when the symtab is over 2GB in size.
107
df3d2ef9
SP
1084. Made the directory hash indexing an optional feature,
109 accessible by the '-H' option of restore, and disable it
110 by default.
111
0c78942b
SP
1125. Fixed dump to not include extended attributes information
113 in the toc (archive) file which confused restore -t.
114
84182f10
SP
115Changes between versions 0.4b39 and 0.4b40 (released May 2, 2005)
116=================================================================
f30c53e5
SP
117
1181. Changed restore to emit warnings (instead of emitting a fatal
119 error) if a file (or a directory) is unavailable for a
120 comparision (if the user doesn't have the necessary permissions
121 to access it for example). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
122 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
35ed8cf8 123
979da669
SP
1242. Re-done the 'do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
125 (excluded from dump)' feature. The previous implementation
126 worked well for excluded directories but not for regular files.
127 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
128 report.
129
1ba0c4bb
SP
1303. Fixed a bug in dump where the tape size was miscalculated when
131 the user used -d/-s to specify the tape characteristics. Thanks
132 to Philip Goisman <goisman@physics.arizona.edu> for reporting
133 the bug.
134
c21722b0
SP
1354. Fixed another bug introduced in restore with the hashtree
136 implementation. This one caused restore to stop saying
137 "removenode: non-empty directory" in some cases.
138
cca7148b
SP
1395. Added support for dumping and restoring ext2/3 extended
140 attributes (EA), like the access control lists (ACL) or
141 the security labels used by SELinux.
142
debbffbc
SP
143Changes between versions 0.4b38 and 0.4b39 (released January 21, 2005)
144======================================================================
35ed8cf8
SP
145
1461. The newly added dump_on_cd_3 example was buggy, replace it
147 with an updated version from Andrew Basterfield
148 <bob@cemetery.homeunix.org>.
b79d20f1 149
30e8407d
SP
1502. Made restore to chdir() back into the initial directory when
151 dumping core while aborting a comparision operation. The
152 previous behaviour was to write the corefile at the root of
153 the directory being compared, which could very well be
154 read only and preventing the corefile generation. Thanks
155 to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
156
b43981b3
SP
1573. Silenced the failure to call fgetflags() when comparing an
158 entry which has no ext2 attributes (as in lsattr()).
159
68415469
SP
1604. Fix a brown paper bug in restore -C which broke restore and
161 caused modifications on the filesystem being compared
162 (directories containing a file with the same name as the
163 directory get renamed to RSTTMP...). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
164 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for finding the bug and helping me
165 reproduce it.
166
18dc6e86
SP
1675. Made restore -C force the -N flag (no writing allowed on
168 the disk) in order to prevent more bugs like the above one.
169
cdd136ec
SP
170Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
171=====================================================================
b79d20f1
SP
172
1731. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
174 Thanks to Eric Raymond <esr@thyrsus.com> for the patch.
d7783603 175
0556ca22
SP
1762. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
177 on which one is available at configure time.
178
7d422735
SP
1793. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
180 dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
181 <sbonds@users.sourceforge.net> for the bug report.
182
585ca01a
SP
1834. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
184 (excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
185 file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
186
241ddca3
SP
1875. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
188 due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
189 Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
190 submitting the bug and testing the fix.
191
47acd076
SP
1926. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
193 link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
194 Thanks to Kyle Wilson <kyle.wilson@amd.com> for reporting the
195 bug.
196
741eb204
SP
1977. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
198 The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
199 restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
200 entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <bristuccia@starentnetworks.com>
201 for reporting the bug.
202
a55ce914
SP
2038. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
204 attributes into the comparision.
205
2069. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
207 be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
208 extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
209 support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA
210 patch.
211
498a402f
SP
212Changes between versions 0.4b36 and 0.4b37 (released July 7, 2004)
213==================================================================
d7783603
SP
214
2151. Added the --enable-staticz configure option which enables
216 dump and restore to be linked with static versions of
217 libz and libbz2 (and dynamic versions of all other libraries).
218 This will make Debian users happy, because libz and libbz2
219 were the only needed libraries living in /usr, all the
220 others live in /lib. In case of system emergency, it is
221 better not to have to rely on an extra filesystem.
222 Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> for the suggestion.
e0267986 223
b3f55532
SP
2242. Fix compilation on (at least the Linux Debian port to) AMD64.
225 (<ext2fs/ext2_types.h> defines some types (__s64 and __u64)
226 that are also defined by <linux/types.h> (<asm/types.h>) and
227 they conflict).
228
1f2c193e
SP
2293. Make dump's reading of the dumpdates file a bit more robust,
230 preventing dump from crashing when the dumpdates file has
231 been modified by hand.
232
e1e4be20
SP
2334. Fixed some offset calculations in dump code which could
234 lead to "bread lseek errors" on large filesystems. Thanks
235 to Bruce Lowekamp <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for
236 reporting this bug and debugging the issue.
237
c9e4e868
SP
2385. Made dump use the blkid library when searching for devices
239 by label or uuid instead of dump's own routines.
240
97be3358
SP
2416. Corrected a bug in dump where a wrong LABEL=... line in
242 /etc/fstab could prevent dump from dumping unrelated
243 filesystems. Thanks to Bruce Lowekamp
244 <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
245
ddf54486
SP
246Changes between versions 0.4b35 and 0.4b36 (released April 21, 2004)
247====================================================================
e0267986
SP
248
2491. Fixed dump compilation with old gcc versions. Thanks to
250 Mike Castle <dalgoda@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
8ad151aa 251
75654eee
SP
2522. Fixed some warnings (howmany, roundup, powerof2 redefined)
253 when compiling against a recent glibc version.
254
43e6ea49
SP
2553. Fixed a bug in restore preventing the read of a dump tape
256 written with Solaris 7 ufsdump. Thanks to Patrick Higgins
257 <phiggins@transzap.com> for reporting the bug and providing
258 the test case.
259
d435f57f
SP
2604. Changed dump to enable the creation of volumes of different
261 sizes in a single run (make -B accept a list of values).
262 Patch contributed by Florian Zumbiehl <florz@gmx.de>.
263
e1ba02ef
SP
2645. Use the glibc provided minor() and major() macros instead
265 of our own bitmask implementation. This should be safe for
266 when the major/minor namespace will migrate to 32 bits.
267 Thanks to Zhang Jun <zhangjun@nanjing-fnst.com> for reporting
268 the bug.
269
ae6919a7
SP
2706. Made explicit in the dump man page that dump will not create
271 a remote file, it will only write to an already existing one.
272
4acaf865
SP
2737. Another try at making size estimates better again.
274
956756f2
SP
2758. Put back the inconditional running of the end-of-tape
276 script which was changed in 0.434 to be run only when -M
277 or multiple -f were NOT specified. Some users rely on this
278 feature even when it is combined with -M/-f.
279
e4e31ce9
SP
2809. Fixed restore when restoring huge backups (where rstdir...
281 temporary files are over 2GB). Thanks to
282 Raphael Jaffey <rjaffey@artic.edu> for reporting this,
283 debugging the issue and making the patch.
284
cc7747eb
SP
28510. Made restore understand FreeBSD UFS2 tapes. Thanks to
286 David <vrtin@users.sourceforge.net> for submitting the bug
287 and providing a test case.
288
28ba5cae
SP
28911. Made dump work with an arbitrary integer level (no more 10
290 levels only limitation). Thanks to Matthew
291 <msvincen@midway.uchicago.edu> for the patch.
292
dcac75e9
SP
293Changes between versions 0.4b34 and 0.4b35 (released December 21, 2003)
294=======================================================================
8ad151aa
SP
295
2961. Added a note in the dump man page saying that the default
297 blocksize can be 32 if -d is used with a high density argument.
298 Thanks to Antonios Christofides <A.Christofides@itia.ntua.gr>
299 for the patch.
ed194aec 300
008af419
SP
3012. Fixed configure to correctly understand CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS,
302 LDFLAGS environment variables. Thanks to Arcady Genkin
303 <antipode@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
304
0d4dfd07 3053. Made -e/-E options of dump accept an unlimited number of inodes
67793be0
SP
306 to be excluded, rather than a hardcoded maximum. Thanks to
307 Dietrich Rothe <d-rothe@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
308
0d4dfd07
SP
3094. Updated the autoconf system to 2.50. Forced the -D_BSD_SOURCE
310 and -D_USE_BSD_SIGNAL defines in configure in order to solve
311 64bit build problems because quad_t is redifined with a
312 different signature. Thanks to Mike Harris <mharris@redhat.com>
313 for reporting this bug.
314
5d8d264f 3155. Made restore build on Solaris, making possible to
d1925e0c
SP
316 restore Linux's "enhanced" tapes. Thanks to Uwe Gohlke
317 <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.
318
3196. Made an extension in the dump tape format capable of saving
320 MacOSX specific inode extensions. Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de>
321 wrote the extension and contributed the restore code back
322 into this codebase. The same extension mechanism will be
323 used in the future to save ACLs...
324
3257. Made rmt work correctly with regard to QFA and local/remote
326 files and tapes. The remote access will however work only
327 when the dump provided rmt version is used. If you want to
328 use another rmt server, please do not use the QFA feature.
5d8d264f 329 Thanks to Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.

332====================================================================
ed194aec
SP
333
3341. Fixed the INSTALL file to reflect the actual install paths.
335 Thanks to David Ronis <ronis@ronispc.chem.mcgill.ca> for
336 reporting the bug.
4bb009da 337
d3e542e7
SP
3382. Fixed the configure script to only check for headers presence
339 instead of trying to compile them. This should fix issues
340 with old build environments. Thanks to Kari Lempiainen
341 <kari@funky.pp.fi> for reporting the bug.
342
1176b3c1
SP
3433. Fixed restore to correctly ignore sockets when comparing
344 a dump (as socket cannot be properly restored anyway). Thanks
2d32c89c
SP
345 to Gunther Reiszig <gunther@mit.edu> for reporting the bug.
346
3474. Fixed restore to correctly access the archive file (-A argument)
348 even when using a remote tape. Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
349 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
1176b3c1 350
900bffdb
SP
3515. Fixed (again) handling of long (largefile) seeks in rmt.
352 Thanks to Fabrice Bellet <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting
353 the bug.
354
6d834d25
SP
3556. Fixed restore corner case when dealing with large block sizes
356 dump is able to write now (-b 1024). Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
357 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
358
cdef84ca
SP
3597. Fixed a bug preventing dump to access a filesystem having
360 a label exactly 16 bytes in length. Thanks to <minduni@ti-edu.ch>
361 for reporting the bug.
362
3458b64d
SP
3638. Made dump store dump dates using explicit timezones, fixing a
364 problem with incremental dumps if the timezone is modified
365 between the dumps. Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for
366 the bug report and the patch.
367
2be77799
SP
3689. Fixed a bug encountered when dumping individual files (not full
369 filesystems or directories) and dangling symbolic links happen
370 to be in the list of files. For as far as dump is concerned,
371 dangling symbolic links are allowed, and are dumped as is.
372 Thanks to Jin-su Ahn <jsahn@ee.snu.ac.kr> for reporting the
373 bug and providing the fix.
374
c3f69f06
SP
37510. Fixed open and creation modes and permissions for QFA and
376 table-of-contents files in dump and restore. Thanks to
377 Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
378
37911. Fixed the archive file descriptor handling enabling it to be 0.
380 This can happen in some cases when shell redirections are used.
381 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
382
38312. Delayed the opening of archive file until after suid had been
384 dropped (fixing a possible security issue if dump is suid).
385 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
386
38713. Fixed the 'S' command handling in the rmt client part.
388 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
389
39014. Modified the end-of-tape script handling to print out statistics
391 (and stop the timer) before launching the eot script. Also, the eot
392 script does not get run anymore when using -M (which makes sense) or
393 when multiple tapes are listed on the command line
394 (-f tape0,tape1,tapen) (which also makes sense).
395 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
396
e1abc9ce
SP
39715. Relicensed dump/restore under the 'revised' BSD license, as per
398 ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change.
399
206f768c
SP
40016. Added LZO compression to dump. This new compression method has
401 the advantage of being super fast, thus not killing tape streaming
402 on slow machines. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch
403 <jarausch@igpm.rwth-aachen.de> for the patch and to
404 Markus Oberhumer <markus@oberhumer.com> for giving special permission
405 to include his miniLZO project (GPL licensed) in dump/restore.
406
e2392789
SP
40717. Some small buffer overruns fixes in rmt. Thanks to Antonomasia
408 <ant@notatla.demon.co.uk> for reporting the bugs.
409
cdfe1392
SP
41018. Added a special rmt version which can do encryption when writing
411 to tape. Read examples/encrypted_rmt/README for details on
412 how to enable and configure it. Thanks to Ken Lalonde
413 <ken@globalremit.com> for the patch.
414
61e9d4ff
SP
41519. Made dump work with 2.5 kernel end of tape early warning semantics.
416 Thanks to Kai Makisara <Kai.Makisara@kolumbus.fi> for the patch.
417
8c95cc30
SP
41820. Fixed a bug which caused dump -w|-W not to work anymore, because
419 the fs_freq and fs_passno fields in /etc/mtab are always set
420 to 0 0. Thanks to Trent Piepho <xyzzy@speakeasy.org> for

424=======================================================================
425
4261. Added a note in the restore man page clarifying the question
427 'set the permissions on the current directory ?' asked by
428 restore at the end of treatment in -i and -x modes.
d86089d1 429
c898ca7a
SP
4302. Fixed the endianess issues when reading compressed tapes.
431 Thanks to Dark Force <daq4th@users.sourceforge.net> for
432 reporting this bug and providing test cases.
433
a028bdc8
SP
4343. Fixed the "ACL won't be dumped" warning message (which showed
435 an extra, unrelated error message). Thanks to Dragan Krnic
436 <dkrnic@lycos.com> for reporting this bug.
437
a8a6a503 4384. Made dump look first into /etc/mtab, then into /etc/fstab
1a886de8
SP
439 when searching for filesystem paths. Also fixed some problems
440 caused by binding mounts or multiple block device mounts.
441 Thanks to Matus Uhlar <uhlar@fantomas.sk>, Elliott Mitchell
a8a6a503
SP
442 <ehem@m5p.com>, Greg Edwards <gedwards@users.sourceforge.net>,
443 Brian Hoy <brian.hoy@opus.co.nz>. (fixes Debian bugs #147086
444 and #160305, Sourceforge bugs #618699 and #679832).

3211c85b
SP
4465. Made dump's -I option accept the value '0' meaning all the
447 read errors will be ignored. This can be useful when running
448 dump from unattended sessions (like cron jobs). Thanks to
449 John I Wang <jiwang@users.sourceforge.net> for the suggestion.
450
7fcd6df5
SP
4516. Fixed the output of dump to indicate 'blocks' instead of
452 'tape blocks' in the various messages (blocks are always
453 1 Kilobyte, tape blocks are 1 BK * '-b' argument), and
454 made it clearly print the current blocksize at the start of
455 a dump. Thanks to Michal Szymanski <msz@astrouw.edu.pl> for
456 the suggestions.
457
5bf65105
SP
4587. Made rmt understand long (largefiles) seeks.
459
dbb649e8
SP
4608. Fixed build with very old versions of libext2fs, where
461 EXT2_FT_* constants were undefined.
462
c92d83ae
SP
4639. Made dump accept the dumpdates path on the command line
464 (-D file option) instead of using only the hardcoded one.
465 Thanks to Piete Brooks <pb22@users.sourceforge.net> for the
466 suggestion.
467
1daf06b9
SP
46810. Enabled rmt, LFS, readline, QFA options by default in
469 ./configure. Updated the configure process (new versions
470 of config.guess, config.sub etc).

473=======================================================================
d86089d1
SP
474
4751. Changed dump to use fcntl(F_SETLK) style locking instead
476 of flock() when locking the dumpdates file. With the old
477 locking scheme, a local user having read rights on the
478 dumpdates file could be able to do a Denial of Service attack
479 on dump. In order to lock the dumpdates file with the new
480 scheme, the user would need to have write access on the file.
481 Thanks to Richard Johnson <Richard.Johnson3@ey.com> for
482 reporting the bug (originally a bugtraq post).
ba3af39e 483
2f562f4e
SP
4842. Fixed interactive 'ls' which caused spurious errors warnings
485 about 'undefined filetypes' detected. Thanks to Jorgen Ostling
486 <jorgen_ostling@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this
487 bug.
488
1c736b78
SP
4893. Fixed dump's estimate when dealing with sparse inodes.
490
876861d2
SP
4914. Modified dump to allow setting a blocksize bigger than 32kB
492 (raised the limit to 1024kB), because newer hardware needs
493 this for proper operation. Thanks to Dirk Traenapp
494 <dtraenapp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this.
495
b8d848c9
SP
4965. Fixed a bug causing Dump to stop and report an error if an
497 inode number in the exclude file was followed by some amount
498 of whitespace. Thanks to Jeffrey Sofferin
499 <sofferin@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this bug.
500
e531c442
SP
5016. Fixed a bug which caused restore, in some particular cases,
502 to ask some 'scary' questions and leave a bunch of RSTTMP
503 directories behind when restoring incremental tapes. Thanks
504 to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for reporting this bug and
505 providing the test cases.
506
c993d83a
SP
5077. Changed the wording when inodes are excluded from dump:
508 replaced 'Added inode 7 to exclude list' with
509 'Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump', as suggested
510 by Elliott Mitchell <ehem@m5p.com> in a Debian bug report.

513===================================================================
514
5151. Fixed rmt open flags transmission (GNU's symbolic syntax over
516 rmt) which I broke in 0.4b29. Thanks to Eros Albertazzi
517 <eros@lamel.bo.cnr.it> for reporting the bug.

520===================================================================
aa1b1e7f
SP
521
5221. Made dump print out the ext2 logical block number in case of a read
523 error, which can be given as an argument to debugfs' ncheck command,
524 in order to find out the affected inode. Added note about this
525 usage in dump's man page.
ed7c25a3
SP
526
5272. Fixed a problem in restore when reading tapes written on big
528 endian machines with very old versions of dump. The patch was
529 contributed by George Helffrich <george@geology.bristol.ac.uk>.
f75cc889
SP
530
5313. Fixed the tape length calculation when using large tapes
532 and compression. Thanks to Georg Lippold
533 <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
a9c5ed48
SP
534
5354. Added a new set of examples in dump_on_cd_2 directory, based
536 on dump_on_cd examples but somewhat enhanced, supporting DVD
537 media, and localized in english and german. Thanks to
538 Georg Lippold <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for the new scripts.
539
9ca70cf6
SP
5405. Made dump save 32 bit UID/GID. Internally, this was achieved
541 by switching from the old BSD inode format to the new BSD
542 inode format, which means that the tape format was changed.
543 However, since all restore versions out there should
544 transparently support both inode formats, the change should
545 have no side effects. Thanks to John Yu <jky@cs.bu.edu> for
546 reporting the bug.
a18d5997
SP
547
5486. Fixed a lot of warnings in the code shown when compiling
549 with 'gcc -W'. Thanks to Matthias Andree
550 <matthias.andree@stud.uni-dortmund.de> for reporting this.
551
2a2e321d
SP
5527. Fixed a small markup bug in the dump man page. Thanks to
553 Eric S. Raymond <esr@minx.thyrsus.com> for submitting the
554 patch.
555
153f9a83
SP
5568. Rewrote entirely the man pages using the tmac.an macro
557 package (Linux man page format) instead of the original BSD
558 format. They should be now cleaner and easier to modify.

562
5631. Fixed a problem in the rmt ioctl command, where ioctl's issued from
564 non Linux clients were misinterpreted. The description of the problem
565 (incompatible numbering in Linux mtio opcodes) is documented at
566 ftp://ftp.fokus.gmd.de/pub/unix/star/README.mtio . Thanks to
