Tech Republic article
Thursday, August 7, 2003

It seems that the extreme activity on the webserver from the last
days was due to the appearance in a newsletter from Tech Republic.
Somebody pointed that out to me, but unfortunately he had already
deleted the mail.

In the mean time I 've received it from other people, but it was
apparently from Winnetmag and was originally adapted from
(with the correct URL this time).

Thanks for all the response Read more
Use the mirrors for download!!!
Wednesday, August 6, 2003

Ever since TRK got referred to on NTFaq, activity on Trinityhome has
been skyrocketing. I 'm looking at 1000 downloads a day now. Even
with the still broken link on ntfaq, people still seem to find
Trinityhome easily.

Although most downloads are over the mirror, I still get a lot local
downloads, hitting bandwidth usage unceasingly to the ceiling. These
files are just there in case the mirror would be down. So to limit
local bandwidth some more, I 've put 4 different compression ... Read more
TRK on
Thursday, July 31, 2003 [1]

Unfortunately, an error appeared in the URL, leading to a dead link: [2] instead of [3]. Even then, people managed
to get to the TRK, since my acces logs where 3 times as high today as
any other day.

John Savill from is about to correct the problem.

Need mirrors - SF submission - NTFaq
Friday, July 25, 2003

I 'm looking for fast mirrors. If anyone would like to mirror the
binaries on a fast link, please contact me, harakiri.
TRK has been submitted to SourceForge as a project. Let 's hope it
gets accepted, then I 'll have plenty of mirrors.
If your download is slow, try also the mirror at my home ISP,
Pandora for trinity-rescue-kit.1.1-build-98.iso.gz. [1] This should
be a very fast link. It 's just the iso.gz file, but it 's
unpackable in both Linux (of course) as well as the ... Read more

TRK 1.1 b98 seems quite alright so far, except I have one machine
where the kernel panics on startup. It 's a dual Intel server with 2
PIII 750's. It panics when trying to scan the PCI bus. Very weird,
versions of TRK with a custom Mandrake kernel boot ok. But then
again, trying TRK 1.1 b98 in a completely similar machine (same mobo,
2x PIII 800), it boots ok. I 've tried recompiling the kernel, but
all my defaults I normally use are there and yet still it panics.

If one of you has had ... Read more
False alarm!!!
Friday, July 11, 2003

For those who have read that Partition Image on TRK 1.1 b98 was
broken: false alarm!! It didn 't work on one PC, but that had a bad
CD reader (nl. Creative 52x, yuk!!!) and probably read it
corruptedly. It 's working fine as we speak on another machine.

Fiiieeuw, no new build needed... :-D Read more

Finally: 1.1 is out!!!
Monday, July 7, 2003

Pffffff!!! A lot of sweat and mindtwisting (no tears though),
Trinity Rescue Kit 1.1 is out. And I call it stable enough, already
at build 98. I think I 've removed all the bugs and added all the
features I planned to add in this release.

Go ahead and give it a try [1].

Here are the changes since my last post on build 93:

-two different ntfs modules, ntfs.o is version 2.1.4a ans ntfs1.o is
version 1.1.21, which still has writing capabilities (although
-mountallfs is much ... Read more
Build 93: PCMCIA works, ntfs still no R/W
Monday, June 30, 2003

Ok, build 93 is out, but tomorrow I 'll bring out build 94, which
should at last have ntfs write support. Apparently, after kernel
2.4.17 they brought in completely new ntfs code which is faster and
more stable but has no more write support, even if you tell it so.
So I 'm attempting to reverse engineer the 2.4.17 ntfs code into the
2.4.21 kernel. Let 's see how that turns out.

Meanwhile, the pcmcia nic detection looks like it 's working well.
It tries loading every module and unloads ... Read more
