TRK 3.1 meets world
Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Trinity Rescue Kit version 3.1 is a fact and ready for download. Be
sure not to burn it on a normal CD/R but a CD/RW. Here 's why:
One of the new features in TRK 3.1 is the ability to update itself
with Captive NTFS drivers and the latest antivirus + definitions.
After it has done this, it will recreate itself as a new iso-file
that you can burn to CD.
The reason why these updates are not inlcluded is obvious: the tools
and drivers it downloads are not GPL (or anywhere near) licensed ... Read more
New horizons up ahead
Wednesday, February 8, 2006

Well folks, I 'm not planning to turn this news announcement page
into my personal blog, but this time I 'm calling for an exception.
The last few days of my life have been quite tumultuous: on Sunday
my 10 year old, dearly beloved cat Pruts got run over by a car
(damn, that sucks!), the next day I 'm hearing that my contract at
Fiat Auto Belgio as a network admin will end permanently by the end
of March.
This is both (somewhat) a disappointment as it is more a relief
(about my job ... Read more

Hyguard download mirror failing
Wednesday, February 1, 2006

Sorry for the inconvenience people. There seems to be a problem on
the Hyguard mirror. All the files have gone and I don 't know why
yet. In the meantime, try downloading from Planetmirror (give it a
minute before it kicks in) or try the alternative link on my old
webserver (2mbit line only, try to avoid that).

Now while I 'm submitting news: next version of TRK will include the
new version of Captive, the CD eject bug is solved, there 'll be a
script that will update TRK with new ... Read more
CD doesn 't eject in build 204
Saturday, January 7, 2006

I discovered a small bug, in that the TRK CD doesn 't eject on halt
or reboot. The fix is ready for the next release, but there won 't be
one until major bugs get found (and fixed) or decent features get
Just to let you know before you contact me about it. Read more
Updated docs on captive again!
Thursday, January 5, 2006

I 'm sorry folks, but some people have reported problems with adding
the ntfs driver files to TRK for captive-ntfs capabilities.

Turns out that with CDBurner XP Pro the CDRs became unbootable after
adding the files and reburning it. I 've never had problems with it,
so I was unable to recreate the situation.
But now finally someone found a much better way in the sense of
injecting the files into the iso before you burn it (I had looked a
bit but didn 't find any software that was capable ... Read more
Updated docs on instructions for addition of captive-ntfs
Tuesday, January 3, 2006

Someone had pointed out that adding captive-ntfs [1] was impossible
using the latest version of Nero (or at least the demo license) since
it closed the CD, leaving it unable to add more files afterwards.

I found a very good alternative, i.e. a FREE (and maybe even better)
alternative for CD burning under Windows: CDBurner XP Pro [2].

FUSE NTFS added to TRK + some bugfixes
Tuesday, January 3, 2006

Alive and kicking, another updated version of TRK released, TRK 3.0
build 204 and 204mdk. This time a major improvement: the addition of
the FUSE NTFS project [1] , which adds alternative ntfs write
capabilities in a safe and -more important- performant way. Using
'mountallfs -f' or 'ntfsmount' you can now talk to NTFS filesystems
and write to them (move, delete, new files, modify) and -unlike
captive-ntfs- without the need for extra file additions from
Microsoft. Only limitations are: max ... Read more
New mirror, new release and new alternate TRK branch
Thursday, December 29, 2005

Oh boy, 3 major announcements, all in one item.

-First start with the short news items: My cry for mirrors has been
heard: the kind people at Hyguard [1] have offered to rsync and
mirror Trinity Rescue Kit. Download speeds are up to as much as
10mbit and response times are very good. Thank you Hyguard!

-New build of TRK 3.0 available, number 201. Solved some bugs with
keyboard metacharacters and hopefully with startup hangs when
activating certain drivers

-New BRANCH of TRK 3.0 ... Read more
And there it is, champagne: Trinity Rescue Kit 3.0!!!
Friday, December 23, 2005

It took a lot of hard work and I had to bite my tongue not to talk
about it before, but I did it: I finally managed to create a new
version of Trinity Rescue Kit, ready to save all those poor sick

We welcome TRINITY RESCUE KIT 3.0 And I 'm proud of my baby. Well
actually, it 's not a baby anymore: TRK has grown mature now, both in
features and free of bugs. Also the size has increased, but I guess I
stil managed to keep it considering what you get for it. And it 's
still free! ... Read more
