b630baf0 16
c43794b1
SP
172. Fix dump -w/-W output for filesystems having the last backup
18 level equal to 0. Thanks to Pascal Bouchareine
19 <kalou@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
20
7f7d329e
SP
213. Enable restore to handle restoring onto a different SELinux
22 policy from the dump. Thanks to Tony Nelson
23 <tony_nelson@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
24 (see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189845
25 for details)
26
db80efa5
SP
274. Fix EA set failures when restoring immutable files. Thanks
28 to Andrew Kroeger for the patch.
29
4a9a33ef
SP
305. Fix "mode file too large" errors when restoring huge backups.
31 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
32 report.
33
d2816d4c
SP
346. Add the ability to link against libtinfo library if present,
35 instead of libtermcap or libncurses libraries. Thanks to
36 Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
37
03dbfe05
SP
387. When comparing a backup, do not consider to be an error the fact
39 that we encounter files created while dump was in progress.
40 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
41 report.
42
d93c86b3
SP
438. Force '-a' to be the default value when running 'restore -C'.
44 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
45 report.
46
b35abb32 479. Many improvements to the 'cron_dump_to_disk' example.
a405c61d
SP
48 Thanks to Aaron S. Hawley <ashawley@users.sourceforge.net> for
49 the patch.
50
eb1636e9
SP
5110. Fix the QFA generation when extended attributes are backuped
52 along with the inodes. Prior to this fix, the entries for
53 some inodes may get corrupted (duplicated entries or incorrect
54 ones), making the QFA file unusable for repositionning in
55 restore. Many thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com>
56 for the bug report and the testing of the fix.
57
11997d3b
SP
5811. Fix EA restoration in debug mode (Sourceforge bug #1986216).
59
34ec103e
SP
6012. Stefan Auracher <star7@onlinehome.de> noticed that the Tower
61 of Hanoi backup strategy documented in the man page wasn't
62 actually based on the Tower of Hanoi algorithm. The man page
63 was updated accordingly.
64
d322203c
SP
6513. Fix missing level information from dump output when using
66 the default level (RedHat bug #493635). Thanks to Adam Tkac
67 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
68
f39dae99
SP
6914. Fix the dump man page to reflect the fact that the default
70 dump level is 0 not 9 (RedHat bug #356121). Thanks to Adam Tkac
71 <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
72
aeb0b047
SP
7315. Fixed a few spelling errors in the man pages (RedHat bug #489853).
74 Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
75
650071c1
SP
7616. Fixed restore man page and program usage which incorrectly stated
77 that -P and -A were both allowed in the same invocation (RedHat
78 bug #490627). Thanks to Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
79
b8db960b
SP
8017. Use sys_clone under Linux to share I/O contexts between dump
81 processes, thus drastically increasing the performance of dump
82 under CFQ (which is the default I/O scheduler used in a number of
83 distributions). Thanks to Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> for the
84 patch.
85
8fa3e5e7
SP
8618. Add (preliminary) ext4 support - thanks to libext2fs which does
87 all the job for us. Thanks to Gertjan van Wingerde
88 <gwingerde@gmail.com> for the patch.
89
370f48b6 90Changes between versions 0.4b40 and 0.4b41 (released January 2, 2006)
54ebfc01 91=====================================================================
b630baf0
SP
92
931. Fix restore of dumped Access Control Lists. The previous
94 code for EA works fine, but ACLs needed conversion from the
95 ext2/3 disk format to posix_acl format before restoring.
f30c53e5 96
cb6d3f79
SP
972. Fix some issues with restoration of EA on big endian
98 platforms.
99
26ce8fc8
SP
1003. Fix restore when the symtab is over 2GB in size.
101
df3d2ef9
SP
1024. Made the directory hash indexing an optional feature,
103 accessible by the '-H' option of restore, and disable it
104 by default.
105
0c78942b
SP
1065. Fixed dump to not include extended attributes information
107 in the toc (archive) file which confused restore -t.
108
84182f10
SP
109Changes between versions 0.4b39 and 0.4b40 (released May 2, 2005)
110=================================================================
f30c53e5
SP
111
1121. Changed restore to emit warnings (instead of emitting a fatal
113 error) if a file (or a directory) is unavailable for a
114 comparision (if the user doesn't have the necessary permissions
115 to access it for example). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
116 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
35ed8cf8 117
979da669
SP
1182. Re-done the 'do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
119 (excluded from dump)' feature. The previous implementation
120 worked well for excluded directories but not for regular files.
121 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
122 report.
123
1ba0c4bb
SP
1243. Fixed a bug in dump where the tape size was miscalculated when
125 the user used -d/-s to specify the tape characteristics. Thanks
126 to Philip Goisman <goisman@physics.arizona.edu> for reporting
127 the bug.
128
c21722b0
SP
1294. Fixed another bug introduced in restore with the hashtree
130 implementation. This one caused restore to stop saying
131 "removenode: non-empty directory" in some cases.
132
cca7148b
SP
1335. Added support for dumping and restoring ext2/3 extended
134 attributes (EA), like the access control lists (ACL) or
135 the security labels used by SELinux.
136
debbffbc
SP
137Changes between versions 0.4b38 and 0.4b39 (released January 21, 2005)
138======================================================================
35ed8cf8
SP
139
1401. The newly added dump_on_cd_3 example was buggy, replace it
141 with an updated version from Andrew Basterfield
142 <bob@cemetery.homeunix.org>.
b79d20f1 143
30e8407d
SP
1442. Made restore to chdir() back into the initial directory when
145 dumping core while aborting a comparision operation. The
146 previous behaviour was to write the corefile at the root of
147 the directory being compared, which could very well be
148 read only and preventing the corefile generation. Thanks
149 to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
150
b43981b3
SP
1513. Silenced the failure to call fgetflags() when comparing an
152 entry which has no ext2 attributes (as in lsattr()).
153
68415469
SP
1544. Fix a brown paper bug in restore -C which broke restore and
155 caused modifications on the filesystem being compared
156 (directories containing a file with the same name as the
157 directory get renamed to RSTTMP...). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
158 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for finding the bug and helping me
159 reproduce it.
160
18dc6e86
SP
1615. Made restore -C force the -N flag (no writing allowed on
162 the disk) in order to prevent more bugs like the above one.
163
cdd136ec
SP
164Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
165=====================================================================
b79d20f1
SP
166
1671. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
168 Thanks to Eric Raymond <esr@thyrsus.com> for the patch.
d7783603 169
0556ca22
SP
1702. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
171 on which one is available at configure time.
172
7d422735
SP
1733. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
174 dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
175 <sbonds@users.sourceforge.net> for the bug report.
176
585ca01a
SP
1774. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
178 (excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
179 file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
180
241ddca3
SP
1815. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
182 due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
183 Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
184 submitting the bug and testing the fix.
185
47acd076
SP
1866. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
187 link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
188 Thanks to Kyle Wilson <kyle.wilson@amd.com> for reporting the
189 bug.
190
741eb204
SP
1917. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
192 The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
193 restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
194 entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <bristuccia@starentnetworks.com>
195 for reporting the bug.
196
a55ce914
SP
1978. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
198 attributes into the comparision.
199
2009. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
201 be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
202 extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
203 support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA
204 patch.
205
498a402f
SP
206Changes between versions 0.4b36 and 0.4b37 (released July 7, 2004)
207==================================================================
d7783603
SP
208
2091. Added the --enable-staticz configure option which enables
210 dump and restore to be linked with static versions of
211 libz and libbz2 (and dynamic versions of all other libraries).
212 This will make Debian users happy, because libz and libbz2
213 were the only needed libraries living in /usr, all the
214 others live in /lib. In case of system emergency, it is
215 better not to have to rely on an extra filesystem.
216 Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> for the suggestion.
e0267986 217
b3f55532
SP
2182. Fix compilation on (at least the Linux Debian port to) AMD64.
219 (<ext2fs/ext2_types.h> defines some types (__s64 and __u64)
220 that are also defined by <linux/types.h> (<asm/types.h>) and
221 they conflict).
222
1f2c193e
SP
2233. Make dump's reading of the dumpdates file a bit more robust,
224 preventing dump from crashing when the dumpdates file has
225 been modified by hand.
226
e1e4be20
SP
2274. Fixed some offset calculations in dump code which could
228 lead to "bread lseek errors" on large filesystems. Thanks
229 to Bruce Lowekamp <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for
230 reporting this bug and debugging the issue.
231
c9e4e868
SP
2325. Made dump use the blkid library when searching for devices
233 by label or uuid instead of dump's own routines.
234
97be3358
SP
2356. Corrected a bug in dump where a wrong LABEL=... line in
236 /etc/fstab could prevent dump from dumping unrelated
237 filesystems. Thanks to Bruce Lowekamp
238 <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
239
ddf54486
SP
240Changes between versions 0.4b35 and 0.4b36 (released April 21, 2004)
241====================================================================
e0267986
SP
242
2431. Fixed dump compilation with old gcc versions. Thanks to
244 Mike Castle <dalgoda@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
8ad151aa 245
75654eee
SP
2462. Fixed some warnings (howmany, roundup, powerof2 redefined)
247 when compiling against a recent glibc version.
248
43e6ea49
SP
2493. Fixed a bug in restore preventing the read of a dump tape
250 written with Solaris 7 ufsdump. Thanks to Patrick Higgins
251 <phiggins@transzap.com> for reporting the bug and providing
252 the test case.
253
d435f57f
SP
2544. Changed dump to enable the creation of volumes of different
255 sizes in a single run (make -B accept a list of values).
256 Patch contributed by Florian Zumbiehl <florz@gmx.de>.
257
e1ba02ef
SP
2585. Use the glibc provided minor() and major() macros instead
259 of our own bitmask implementation. This should be safe for
260 when the major/minor namespace will migrate to 32 bits.
261 Thanks to Zhang Jun <zhangjun@nanjing-fnst.com> for reporting
262 the bug.
263
ae6919a7
SP
2646. Made explicit in the dump man page that dump will not create
265 a remote file, it will only write to an already existing one.
266
4acaf865
SP
2677. Another try at making size estimates better again.
268
956756f2
SP
2698. Put back the inconditional running of the end-of-tape
270 script which was changed in 0.434 to be run only when -M
271 or multiple -f were NOT specified. Some users rely on this
272 feature even when it is combined with -M/-f.
273
e4e31ce9
SP
2749. Fixed restore when restoring huge backups (where rstdir...
275 temporary files are over 2GB). Thanks to
276 Raphael Jaffey <rjaffey@artic.edu> for reporting this,
277 debugging the issue and making the patch.
278
cc7747eb
SP
27910. Made restore understand FreeBSD UFS2 tapes. Thanks to
280 David <vrtin@users.sourceforge.net> for submitting the bug
281 and providing a test case.
282
28ba5cae
SP
28311. Made dump work with an arbitrary integer level (no more 10
284 levels only limitation). Thanks to Matthew
285 <msvincen@midway.uchicago.edu> for the patch.
286
dcac75e9
SP
287Changes between versions 0.4b34 and 0.4b35 (released December 21, 2003)
288=======================================================================
8ad151aa
SP
289
2901. Added a note in the dump man page saying that the default
291 blocksize can be 32 if -d is used with a high density argument.
292 Thanks to Antonios Christofides <A.Christofides@itia.ntua.gr>
293 for the patch.
ed194aec 294
008af419
SP
2952. Fixed configure to correctly understand CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS,
296 LDFLAGS environment variables. Thanks to Arcady Genkin
297 <antipode@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
298
0d4dfd07 2993. Made -e/-E options of dump accept an unlimited number of inodes
67793be0
SP
300 to be excluded, rather than a hardcoded maximum. Thanks to
301 Dietrich Rothe <d-rothe@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
302
0d4dfd07
SP
3034. Updated the autoconf system to 2.50. Forced the -D_BSD_SOURCE
304 and -D_USE_BSD_SIGNAL defines in configure in order to solve
305 64bit build problems because quad_t is redifined with a
306 different signature. Thanks to Mike Harris <mharris@redhat.com>
307 for reporting this bug.
308
5d8d264f 3095. Made restore build on Solaris, making possible to
d1925e0c
SP
310 restore Linux's "enhanced" tapes. Thanks to Uwe Gohlke
311 <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.
312
3136. Made an extension in the dump tape format capable of saving
314 MacOSX specific inode extensions. Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de>
315 wrote the extension and contributed the restore code back
316 into this codebase. The same extension mechanism will be
317 used in the future to save ACLs...
318
3197. Made rmt work correctly with regard to QFA and local/remote
320 files and tapes. The remote access will however work only
321 when the dump provided rmt version is used. If you want to
322 use another rmt server, please do not use the QFA feature.
5d8d264f 323 Thanks to Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.

ed194aec
SP
327
3281. Fixed the INSTALL file to reflect the actual install paths.
329 Thanks to David Ronis <ronis@ronispc.chem.mcgill.ca> for
330 reporting the bug.
4bb009da 331
d3e542e7
SP
3322. Fixed the configure script to only check for headers presence
333 instead of trying to compile them. This should fix issues
334 with old build environments. Thanks to Kari Lempiainen
335 <kari@funky.pp.fi> for reporting the bug.
336
1176b3c1
SP
3373. Fixed restore to correctly ignore sockets when comparing
338 a dump (as socket cannot be properly restored anyway). Thanks
2d32c89c
SP
339 to Gunther Reiszig <gunther@mit.edu> for reporting the bug.
340
3414. Fixed restore to correctly access the archive file (-A argument)
342 even when using a remote tape. Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
343 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
1176b3c1 344
900bffdb
SP
3455. Fixed (again) handling of long (largefile) seeks in rmt.
346 Thanks to Fabrice Bellet <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting
347 the bug.
348
6d834d25
SP
3496. Fixed restore corner case when dealing with large block sizes
350 dump is able to write now (-b 1024). Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
351 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
352
cdef84ca
SP
3537. Fixed a bug preventing dump to access a filesystem having
354 a label exactly 16 bytes in length. Thanks to <minduni@ti-edu.ch>
355 for reporting the bug.
356
3458b64d
SP
3578. Made dump store dump dates using explicit timezones, fixing a
358 problem with incremental dumps if the timezone is modified
359 between the dumps. Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for
360 the bug report and the patch.
361
2be77799
SP
3629. Fixed a bug encountered when dumping individual files (not full
363 filesystems or directories) and dangling symbolic links happen
364 to be in the list of files. For as far as dump is concerned,
365 dangling symbolic links are allowed, and are dumped as is.
366 Thanks to Jin-su Ahn <jsahn@ee.snu.ac.kr> for reporting the
367 bug and providing the fix.
368
c3f69f06
SP
36910. Fixed open and creation modes and permissions for QFA and
370 table-of-contents files in dump and restore. Thanks to
371 Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
372
37311. Fixed the archive file descriptor handling enabling it to be 0.
374 This can happen in some cases when shell redirections are used.
375 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
376
37712. Delayed the opening of archive file until after suid had been
378 dropped (fixing a possible security issue if dump is suid).
379 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
380
38113. Fixed the 'S' command handling in the rmt client part.
382 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
383
38414. Modified the end-of-tape script handling to print out statistics
385 (and stop the timer) before launching the eot script. Also, the eot
386 script does not get run anymore when using -M (which makes sense) or
387 when multiple tapes are listed on the command line
388 (-f tape0,tape1,tapen) (which also makes sense).
389 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
390
e1abc9ce
SP
39115. Relicensed dump/restore under the 'revised' BSD license, as per
392 ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change.
393
206f768c
SP
39416. Added LZO compression to dump. This new compression method has
395 the advantage of being super fast, thus not killing tape streaming
396 on slow machines. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch
397 <jarausch@igpm.rwth-aachen.de> for the patch and to
398 Markus Oberhumer <markus@oberhumer.com> for giving special permission
399 to include his miniLZO project (GPL licensed) in dump/restore.
400
e2392789
SP
40117. Some small buffer overruns fixes in rmt. Thanks to Antonomasia
402 <ant@notatla.demon.co.uk> for reporting the bugs.
403
cdfe1392
SP
40418. Added a special rmt version which can do encryption when writing
405 to tape. Read examples/encrypted_rmt/README for details on
406 how to enable and configure it. Thanks to Ken Lalonde
407 <ken@globalremit.com> for the patch.
408
61e9d4ff
SP
40919. Made dump work with 2.5 kernel end of tape early warning semantics.
410 Thanks to Kai Makisara <Kai.Makisara@kolumbus.fi> for the patch.
411
8c95cc30
SP
41220. Fixed a bug which caused dump -w|-W not to work anymore, because
413 the fs_freq and fs_passno fields in /etc/mtab are always set
414 to 0 0. Thanks to Trent Piepho <xyzzy@speakeasy.org> for
415 reporting the bug.

421 'set the permissions on the current directory ?' asked by
422 restore at the end of treatment in -i and -x modes.
d86089d1 423
c898ca7a

425 Thanks to Dark Force <daq4th@users.sourceforge.net> for
426 reporting this bug and providing test cases.

4283. Fixed the "ACL won't be dumped" warning message (which showed
429 an extra, unrelated error message). Thanks to Dragan Krnic
430 <dkrnic@lycos.com> for reporting this bug.
431
a8a6a503 4324. Made dump look first into /etc/mtab, then into /etc/fstab

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

4405. Made dump's -I option accept the value '0' meaning all the
441 read errors will be ignored. This can be useful when running
442 dump from unattended sessions (like cron jobs). Thanks to
443 John I Wang <jiwang@users.sourceforge.net> for the suggestion.

SP
4456. Fixed the output of dump to indicate 'blocks' instead of
446 'tape blocks' in the various messages (blocks are always
447 1 Kilobyte, tape blocks are 1 BK * '-b' argument), and
448 made it clearly print the current blocksize at the start of
449 a dump. Thanks to Michal Szymanski <msz@astrouw.edu.pl> for
450 the suggestions.

4548. Fixed build with very old versions of libext2fs, where
455 EXT2_FT_* constants were undefined.
456
c92d83ae
SP
4579. Made dump accept the dumpdates path on the command line
458 (-D file option) instead of using only the hardcoded one.
459 Thanks to Piete Brooks <pb22@users.sourceforge.net> for the
460 suggestion.

46210. Enabled rmt, LFS, readline, QFA options by default in
463 ./configure. Updated the configure process (new versions
464 of config.guess, config.sub etc).

4691. Changed dump to use fcntl(F_SETLK) style locking instead
470 of flock() when locking the dumpdates file. With the old
471 locking scheme, a local user having read rights on the
472 dumpdates file could be able to do a Denial of Service attack
473 on dump. In order to lock the dumpdates file with the new
474 scheme, the user would need to have write access on the file.
475 Thanks to Richard Johnson <Richard.Johnson3@ey.com> for
476 reporting the bug (originally a bugtraq post).

4782. Fixed interactive 'ls' which caused spurious errors warnings
479 about 'undefined filetypes' detected. Thanks to Jorgen Ostling
480 <jorgen_ostling@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this
481 bug.

4833. Fixed dump's estimate when dealing with sparse inodes.
484

SP
4854. Modified dump to allow setting a blocksize bigger than 32kB
486 (raised the limit to 1024kB), because newer hardware needs
487 this for proper operation. Thanks to Dirk Traenapp
488 <dtraenapp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this.

SP
4905. Fixed a bug causing Dump to stop and report an error if an
491 inode number in the exclude file was followed by some amount
492 of whitespace. Thanks to Jeffrey Sofferin
493 <sofferin@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this bug.

e531c442
SP
4956. Fixed a bug which caused restore, in some particular cases,
496 to ask some 'scary' questions and leave a bunch of RSTTMP
497 directories behind when restoring incremental tapes. Thanks
498 to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for reporting this bug and
499 providing the test cases.

5017. Changed the wording when inodes are excluded from dump:
502 replaced 'Added inode 7 to exclude list' with
503 'Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump', as suggested
504 by Elliott Mitchell <ehem@m5p.com> in a Debian bug report.

5161. Made dump print out the ext2 logical block number in case of a read
517 error, which can be given as an argument to debugfs' ncheck command,
518 in order to find out the affected inode. Added note about this
519 usage in dump's man page.

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

526 and compression. Thanks to Georg Lippold

528
5294. Added a new set of examples in dump_on_cd_2 directory, based
530 on dump_on_cd examples but somewhat enhanced, supporting DVD
531 media, and localized in english and german. Thanks to
532 Georg Lippold <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for the new scripts.

5345. Made dump save 32 bit UID/GID. Internally, this was achieved
535 by switching from the old BSD inode format to the new BSD
536 inode format, which means that the tape format was changed.
537 However, since all restore versions out there should
538 transparently support both inode formats, the change should
539 have no side effects. Thanks to John Yu <jky@cs.bu.edu> for
540 reporting the bug.

5508. Rewrote entirely the man pages using the tmac.an macro
551 package (Linux man page format) instead of the original BSD
552 format. They should be now cleaner and easier to modify.
