4=====================================================================
5
61. Fix printout of the 'Connection to' message in dump/restore.
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
b8db960b
SP
7317. Use sys_clone under Linux to share I/O contexts between dump
74 processes, thus drastically increasing the performance of dump
75 under CFQ (which is the default I/O scheduler used in a number of
76 distributions). Thanks to Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> for the
77 patch.
78
8fa3e5e7
SP
7918. Add (preliminary) ext4 support - thanks to libext2fs which does
80 all the job for us. Thanks to Gertjan van Wingerde
81 <gwingerde@gmail.com> for the patch.
82
370f48b6 83Changes between versions 0.4b40 and 0.4b41 (released January 2, 2006)
54ebfc01 84=====================================================================
b630baf0
SP
85
861. Fix restore of dumped Access Control Lists. The previous
87 code for EA works fine, but ACLs needed conversion from the
88 ext2/3 disk format to posix_acl format before restoring.
f30c53e5 89
cb6d3f79
SP
902. Fix some issues with restoration of EA on big endian
91 platforms.
92
26ce8fc8
SP
933. Fix restore when the symtab is over 2GB in size.
94
df3d2ef9
SP
954. Made the directory hash indexing an optional feature,
96 accessible by the '-H' option of restore, and disable it
97 by default.
98
0c78942b
SP
995. Fixed dump to not include extended attributes information
100 in the toc (archive) file which confused restore -t.
101
84182f10
SP
102Changes between versions 0.4b39 and 0.4b40 (released May 2, 2005)
103=================================================================
f30c53e5
SP
104
1051. Changed restore to emit warnings (instead of emitting a fatal
106 error) if a file (or a directory) is unavailable for a
107 comparision (if the user doesn't have the necessary permissions
108 to access it for example). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
109 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
35ed8cf8 110
979da669
SP
1112. Re-done the 'do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
112 (excluded from dump)' feature. The previous implementation
113 worked well for excluded directories but not for regular files.
114 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
115 report.
116
1ba0c4bb
SP
1173. Fixed a bug in dump where the tape size was miscalculated when
118 the user used -d/-s to specify the tape characteristics. Thanks
119 to Philip Goisman <goisman@physics.arizona.edu> for reporting
120 the bug.
121
c21722b0
SP
1224. Fixed another bug introduced in restore with the hashtree
123 implementation. This one caused restore to stop saying
124 "removenode: non-empty directory" in some cases.
125
cca7148b
SP
1265. Added support for dumping and restoring ext2/3 extended
127 attributes (EA), like the access control lists (ACL) or
128 the security labels used by SELinux.
129
debbffbc
SP
130Changes between versions 0.4b38 and 0.4b39 (released January 21, 2005)
131======================================================================
35ed8cf8
SP
132
1331. The newly added dump_on_cd_3 example was buggy, replace it
134 with an updated version from Andrew Basterfield
135 <bob@cemetery.homeunix.org>.
b79d20f1 136
30e8407d
SP
1372. Made restore to chdir() back into the initial directory when
138 dumping core while aborting a comparision operation. The
139 previous behaviour was to write the corefile at the root of
140 the directory being compared, which could very well be
141 read only and preventing the corefile generation. Thanks
142 to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
143
b43981b3
SP
1443. Silenced the failure to call fgetflags() when comparing an
145 entry which has no ext2 attributes (as in lsattr()).
146
68415469
SP
1474. Fix a brown paper bug in restore -C which broke restore and
148 caused modifications on the filesystem being compared
149 (directories containing a file with the same name as the
150 directory get renamed to RSTTMP...). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
151 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for finding the bug and helping me
152 reproduce it.
153
18dc6e86
SP
1545. Made restore -C force the -N flag (no writing allowed on
155 the disk) in order to prevent more bugs like the above one.
156
cdd136ec
SP
157Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
158=====================================================================
b79d20f1
SP
159
1601. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
161 Thanks to Eric Raymond <esr@thyrsus.com> for the patch.
d7783603 162
0556ca22
SP
1632. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
164 on which one is available at configure time.
165
7d422735
SP
1663. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
167 dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
168 <sbonds@users.sourceforge.net> for the bug report.
169
585ca01a
SP
1704. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
171 (excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
172 file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
173
241ddca3
SP
1745. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
175 due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
176 Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
177 submitting the bug and testing the fix.
178
47acd076
SP
1796. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
180 link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
181 Thanks to Kyle Wilson <kyle.wilson@amd.com> for reporting the
182 bug.
183
741eb204
SP
1847. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
185 The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
186 restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
187 entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <bristuccia@starentnetworks.com>
188 for reporting the bug.
189
a55ce914
SP
1908. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
191 attributes into the comparision.
192
1939. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
194 be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
195 extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
196 support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA
197 patch.
198
498a402f
SP
199Changes between versions 0.4b36 and 0.4b37 (released July 7, 2004)
200==================================================================
d7783603
SP
201
2021. Added the --enable-staticz configure option which enables
203 dump and restore to be linked with static versions of
204 libz and libbz2 (and dynamic versions of all other libraries).
205 This will make Debian users happy, because libz and libbz2
206 were the only needed libraries living in /usr, all the
207 others live in /lib. In case of system emergency, it is
208 better not to have to rely on an extra filesystem.
209 Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> for the suggestion.
e0267986 210
b3f55532
SP
2112. Fix compilation on (at least the Linux Debian port to) AMD64.
212 (<ext2fs/ext2_types.h> defines some types (__s64 and __u64)
213 that are also defined by <linux/types.h> (<asm/types.h>) and
214 they conflict).
215
1f2c193e
SP
2163. Make dump's reading of the dumpdates file a bit more robust,
217 preventing dump from crashing when the dumpdates file has
218 been modified by hand.
219
e1e4be20
SP
2204. Fixed some offset calculations in dump code which could
221 lead to "bread lseek errors" on large filesystems. Thanks
222 to Bruce Lowekamp <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for
223 reporting this bug and debugging the issue.
224
c9e4e868
SP
2255. Made dump use the blkid library when searching for devices
226 by label or uuid instead of dump's own routines.
227
97be3358
SP
2286. Corrected a bug in dump where a wrong LABEL=... line in
229 /etc/fstab could prevent dump from dumping unrelated
230 filesystems. Thanks to Bruce Lowekamp
231 <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
232
ddf54486
SP
233Changes between versions 0.4b35 and 0.4b36 (released April 21, 2004)
234====================================================================
e0267986
SP
235
2361. Fixed dump compilation with old gcc versions. Thanks to
237 Mike Castle <dalgoda@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
8ad151aa 238
75654eee
SP
2392. Fixed some warnings (howmany, roundup, powerof2 redefined)
240 when compiling against a recent glibc version.
241
43e6ea49
SP
2423. Fixed a bug in restore preventing the read of a dump tape
243 written with Solaris 7 ufsdump. Thanks to Patrick Higgins
244 <phiggins@transzap.com> for reporting the bug and providing
245 the test case.
246
d435f57f
SP
2474. Changed dump to enable the creation of volumes of different
248 sizes in a single run (make -B accept a list of values).
249 Patch contributed by Florian Zumbiehl <florz@gmx.de>.
250
e1ba02ef
SP
2515. Use the glibc provided minor() and major() macros instead
252 of our own bitmask implementation. This should be safe for
253 when the major/minor namespace will migrate to 32 bits.
254 Thanks to Zhang Jun <zhangjun@nanjing-fnst.com> for reporting
255 the bug.
256
ae6919a7
SP
2576. Made explicit in the dump man page that dump will not create
258 a remote file, it will only write to an already existing one.
259
4acaf865
SP
2607. Another try at making size estimates better again.
261
956756f2
SP
2628. Put back the inconditional running of the end-of-tape
263 script which was changed in 0.434 to be run only when -M
264 or multiple -f were NOT specified. Some users rely on this
265 feature even when it is combined with -M/-f.
266
e4e31ce9
SP
2679. Fixed restore when restoring huge backups (where rstdir...
268 temporary files are over 2GB). Thanks to
269 Raphael Jaffey <rjaffey@artic.edu> for reporting this,
270 debugging the issue and making the patch.
271
cc7747eb
SP
27210. Made restore understand FreeBSD UFS2 tapes. Thanks to
273 David <vrtin@users.sourceforge.net> for submitting the bug
274 and providing a test case.
275
28ba5cae
SP
27611. Made dump work with an arbitrary integer level (no more 10
277 levels only limitation). Thanks to Matthew
278 <msvincen@midway.uchicago.edu> for the patch.
279
dcac75e9
SP
280Changes between versions 0.4b34 and 0.4b35 (released December 21, 2003)
281=======================================================================
8ad151aa
SP
282
2831. Added a note in the dump man page saying that the default
284 blocksize can be 32 if -d is used with a high density argument.
285 Thanks to Antonios Christofides <A.Christofides@itia.ntua.gr>
286 for the patch.
ed194aec 287
008af419
SP
2882. Fixed configure to correctly understand CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS,
289 LDFLAGS environment variables. Thanks to Arcady Genkin
290 <antipode@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
291
0d4dfd07 2923. Made -e/-E options of dump accept an unlimited number of inodes
67793be0
SP
293 to be excluded, rather than a hardcoded maximum. Thanks to
294 Dietrich Rothe <d-rothe@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
295
0d4dfd07
SP
2964. Updated the autoconf system to 2.50. Forced the -D_BSD_SOURCE
297 and -D_USE_BSD_SIGNAL defines in configure in order to solve
298 64bit build problems because quad_t is redifined with a
299 different signature. Thanks to Mike Harris <mharris@redhat.com>
300 for reporting this bug.
301
5d8d264f 3025. Made restore build on Solaris, making possible to
d1925e0c
SP
303 restore Linux's "enhanced" tapes. Thanks to Uwe Gohlke
304 <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.
305
3066. Made an extension in the dump tape format capable of saving
307 MacOSX specific inode extensions. Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de>
308 wrote the extension and contributed the restore code back
309 into this codebase. The same extension mechanism will be
310 used in the future to save ACLs...
311
3127. Made rmt work correctly with regard to QFA and local/remote
313 files and tapes. The remote access will however work only
314 when the dump provided rmt version is used. If you want to
315 use another rmt server, please do not use the QFA feature.
5d8d264f 316 Thanks to Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.

ed194aec
SP
320
3211. Fixed the INSTALL file to reflect the actual install paths.
322 Thanks to David Ronis <ronis@ronispc.chem.mcgill.ca> for
323 reporting the bug.
4bb009da 324
d3e542e7
SP
3252. Fixed the configure script to only check for headers presence
326 instead of trying to compile them. This should fix issues
327 with old build environments. Thanks to Kari Lempiainen
328 <kari@funky.pp.fi> for reporting the bug.
329
1176b3c1
SP
3303. Fixed restore to correctly ignore sockets when comparing
331 a dump (as socket cannot be properly restored anyway). Thanks
2d32c89c
SP
332 to Gunther Reiszig <gunther@mit.edu> for reporting the bug.
333
3344. Fixed restore to correctly access the archive file (-A argument)
335 even when using a remote tape. Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
336 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
1176b3c1 337
900bffdb
SP
3385. Fixed (again) handling of long (largefile) seeks in rmt.
339 Thanks to Fabrice Bellet <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting
340 the bug.
341
6d834d25
SP
3426. Fixed restore corner case when dealing with large block sizes
343 dump is able to write now (-b 1024). Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
344 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
345
cdef84ca
SP
3467. Fixed a bug preventing dump to access a filesystem having
347 a label exactly 16 bytes in length. Thanks to <minduni@ti-edu.ch>
348 for reporting the bug.
349
3458b64d
SP
3508. Made dump store dump dates using explicit timezones, fixing a
351 problem with incremental dumps if the timezone is modified
352 between the dumps. Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for
353 the bug report and the patch.
354
2be77799
SP
3559. Fixed a bug encountered when dumping individual files (not full
356 filesystems or directories) and dangling symbolic links happen
357 to be in the list of files. For as far as dump is concerned,
358 dangling symbolic links are allowed, and are dumped as is.
359 Thanks to Jin-su Ahn <jsahn@ee.snu.ac.kr> for reporting the
360 bug and providing the fix.
361
c3f69f06
SP
36210. Fixed open and creation modes and permissions for QFA and
363 table-of-contents files in dump and restore. Thanks to
364 Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
365
36611. Fixed the archive file descriptor handling enabling it to be 0.
367 This can happen in some cases when shell redirections are used.
368 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
369
37012. Delayed the opening of archive file until after suid had been
371 dropped (fixing a possible security issue if dump is suid).
372 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
373
37413. Fixed the 'S' command handling in the rmt client part.
375 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
376
37714. Modified the end-of-tape script handling to print out statistics
378 (and stop the timer) before launching the eot script. Also, the eot
379 script does not get run anymore when using -M (which makes sense) or
380 when multiple tapes are listed on the command line
381 (-f tape0,tape1,tapen) (which also makes sense).
382 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
383
e1abc9ce
SP
38415. Relicensed dump/restore under the 'revised' BSD license, as per
385 ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change.
386
206f768c
SP
38716. Added LZO compression to dump. This new compression method has
388 the advantage of being super fast, thus not killing tape streaming
389 on slow machines. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch
390 <jarausch@igpm.rwth-aachen.de> for the patch and to
391 Markus Oberhumer <markus@oberhumer.com> for giving special permission
392 to include his miniLZO project (GPL licensed) in dump/restore.
393
e2392789
SP
39417. Some small buffer overruns fixes in rmt. Thanks to Antonomasia
395 <ant@notatla.demon.co.uk> for reporting the bugs.
396
cdfe1392
SP
39718. Added a special rmt version which can do encryption when writing
398 to tape. Read examples/encrypted_rmt/README for details on
399 how to enable and configure it. Thanks to Ken Lalonde
400 <ken@globalremit.com> for the patch.
401
61e9d4ff
SP
40219. Made dump work with 2.5 kernel end of tape early warning semantics.
403 Thanks to Kai Makisara <Kai.Makisara@kolumbus.fi> for the patch.
404
8c95cc30
SP
40520. Fixed a bug which caused dump -w|-W not to work anymore, because
406 the fs_freq and fs_passno fields in /etc/mtab are always set
407 to 0 0. Thanks to Trent Piepho <xyzzy@speakeasy.org> for
408 reporting the bug.
409
cbdba727 410Changes between versions 0.4b32 and 0.4b33 (released February 10, 2003)
4bb009da
SP
411=======================================================================
412
4131. Added a note in the restore man page clarifying the question
414 'set the permissions on the current directory ?' asked by
415 restore at the end of treatment in -i and -x modes.
d86089d1 416
c898ca7a
SP
4172. Fixed the endianess issues when reading compressed tapes.
418 Thanks to Dark Force <daq4th@users.sourceforge.net> for
419 reporting this bug and providing test cases.
420
a028bdc8
SP
4213. Fixed the "ACL won't be dumped" warning message (which showed
422 an extra, unrelated error message). Thanks to Dragan Krnic
423 <dkrnic@lycos.com> for reporting this bug.

4335. Made dump's -I option accept the value '0' meaning all the
434 read errors will be ignored. This can be useful when running
435 dump from unattended sessions (like cron jobs). Thanks to
436 John I Wang <jiwang@users.sourceforge.net> for the suggestion.

4386. Fixed the output of dump to indicate 'blocks' instead of
439 'tape blocks' in the various messages (blocks are always
440 1 Kilobyte, tape blocks are 1 BK * '-b' argument), and
441 made it clearly print the current blocksize at the start of
442 a dump. Thanks to Michal Szymanski <msz@astrouw.edu.pl> for
443 the suggestions.

448 EXT2_FT_* constants were undefined.

4509. Made dump accept the dumpdates path on the command line
451 (-D file option) instead of using only the hardcoded one.
452 Thanks to Piete Brooks <pb22@users.sourceforge.net> for the
453 suggestion.

457 of config.guess, config.sub etc).

4621. Changed dump to use fcntl(F_SETLK) style locking instead
463 of flock() when locking the dumpdates file. With the old
464 locking scheme, a local user having read rights on the
465 dumpdates file could be able to do a Denial of Service attack
466 on dump. In order to lock the dumpdates file with the new
467 scheme, the user would need to have write access on the file.
468 Thanks to Richard Johnson <Richard.Johnson3@ey.com> for
469 reporting the bug (originally a bugtraq post).

4712. Fixed interactive 'ls' which caused spurious errors warnings
472 about 'undefined filetypes' detected. Thanks to Jorgen Ostling

SP
4784. Modified dump to allow setting a blocksize bigger than 32kB
479 (raised the limit to 1024kB), because newer hardware needs
480 this for proper operation. Thanks to Dirk Traenapp
481 <dtraenapp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this.

4835. Fixed a bug causing Dump to stop and report an error if an
484 inode number in the exclude file was followed by some amount
485 of whitespace. Thanks to Jeffrey Sofferin
486 <sofferin@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this bug.

SP
4886. Fixed a bug which caused restore, in some particular cases,
489 to ask some 'scary' questions and leave a bunch of RSTTMP
490 directories behind when restoring incremental tapes. Thanks
491 to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for reporting this bug and
492 providing the test cases.

4947. Changed the wording when inodes are excluded from dump:
495 replaced 'Added inode 7 to exclude list' with
496 'Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump', as suggested
497 by Elliott Mitchell <ehem@m5p.com> in a Debian bug report.

5091. Made dump print out the ext2 logical block number in case of a read
510 error, which can be given as an argument to debugfs' ncheck command,
511 in order to find out the affected inode. Added note about this
512 usage in dump's man page.

515 endian machines with very old versions of dump. The patch was

5224. Added a new set of examples in dump_on_cd_2 directory, based
523 on dump_on_cd examples but somewhat enhanced, supporting DVD
524 media, and localized in english and german. Thanks to
525 Georg Lippold <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for the new scripts.

5275. Made dump save 32 bit UID/GID. Internally, this was achieved
528 by switching from the old BSD inode format to the new BSD
529 inode format, which means that the tape format was changed.
530 However, since all restore versions out there should
531 transparently support both inode formats, the change should
532 have no side effects. Thanks to John Yu <jky@cs.bu.edu> for
533 reporting the bug.

5438. Rewrote entirely the man pages using the tmac.an macro
544 package (Linux man page format) instead of the original BSD
