Trinityhome.org webserver/browser issue
Monday, June 23, 2003


Apparently, Internet Explorer had some weird behaviour when
downloading .gz compressed files: it downloaded the complete
uncompressed iso file, making it look like your browser kept
downloading infinitely.
What it did what it did was a behaviour by Apache design, but very
annoying:
It seems that the default config of Apache 2 on Mandrake has the next
lines in its config,
with the following comment:

#
# AddEncoding allows you to have certain browsers (Mosaic/X 2.1+)

Yet another new build: TRK 1.1 build 89
Friday, June 20, 2003


Yes I know, yet another new version of Trinity Rescue Kit
Yes, again with lots of bug fixes.

Seriously: this one should become a release candidate. It has a new
feature in the startup screen: when you switch to text mode with
ctrl+X, you can try TRKx and put some numbers behind it. These
numbers will be taken into account as specific startup parameters. It
has 7 possible parameters:
1: Run kudzu
2: Dhcpcd
3: Belgian keyboard
4: Run scripts from floppy
And then the new possibilities
5: ... Read more
TRK 1.1 build 87 released
Thursday, June 19, 2003


Again, many bugfixes in this one:

-mountallfs.sh is fixed and way better than when it used to work in
0.5. It now makes less garbage output.
-virusscan.sh: you can set a flag: -upd or -noupd meaning it can scan

go ahead with the current definitions van June 12.
-devfs gets mounted
-partimage is broken, misses a library. Will fix it tomorrow
-hwdata should be updated and able to detect USB and pcmcia devices.

TRK 1.1 build 84: First testing results
Thursday, June 19, 2003


Been testing it on a few computers and as I expected since this is
the first release after the major binary upgrade, some stuff still
doesn 't work. Luckilly, most things that did work in TRK 1.0 are
still not broken, except that devfsd doesn 't get mounted for some
reason.
Some old bugs still remain:
-Still no autodetection of PCMCIA cards. I 'm thinking of putting the
different PCMCIA sockets alltogether hardcoded in the kernel, since I
won quite some space compared to the kernel from TRK ... Read more

A new webpage and a new version of TRK
Tuesday, June 17, 2003


Big day for TRK:

Since months after TRK 1.0 I 've been sort of working on a new
design, interface and structure for the Trinity Rescue Kit's
homepage, but was never quite happy with the result.
Now I content myself with this blue-ish/orange/black design because
the first working new build of TRK 1.1 is out!. I 've started work on
that one last Friday, and behold [1]

So I thought this would be a good day to publish it all. Some things
may still look quick and dirty, but that 's bound to ... Read more
