New TRK 3.4 maintenance version build 372
Friday, April 29, 2011
It's been 8 months now since the first 3.4 build, so I figured it was time for an updated release, now at build 372.

There are no world shocking changes in this release, but it might be important for people using recent hardware.
Here 's the changelog since TRK 3.4 build 367:

-kernel 2.6.37.1
-hfsplusutilities 1.0.4-r1 (Gentoo sources) for Mac support
-hfs, hfsplus added as filesystem to mountallfs
-recompiled ntfsprogs with ntfsck. Don't expect too much from ntfsck: it's a very ... Read more
Clamav on TRK generates false positives
Tuesday, February 8, 2011
Journalists from the German Linux Magazin [1] reported us that TRK was generating dangerous false positives when using virusscan in combination with ClamAV, the default TRK virusscan scan engine.

I immediately responded by asking logfiles and there I found out the false positive came from a combination of using Clamav 0.96.1 together with signature files between 2011-02-04 and 2011-02-07

Luckily, updating to version 0.96.5 fixes the problem. User who now run virusscan under TRK, will ... Read more

New TRK 3.4: easier than ever before
Monday, August 16, 2010
Big news from the Trinity Rescue Kit camp: an all new version of the live distro has just been published after almost a year of (public) silence.

People, we can't hide our excitement: the new TRK 3.4 is better, easier and more debugged than ever before!
The biggest visible enhancement here is the addition of a menu interface. Not a graphical one -who needs that in a rescue distribution?- but a text based, scrollable menu from which any regular computer user can perform otherwise ... Read more
Webserver down hassles
Monday, February 1, 2010
Around 30-31st of January 2010 this website was as good as down. Unfortunately this was not the first time. But the difference was that it came back on its own, so it gave me an opportunity to trace the cause of the problems. Apparently the server went out-of-memory because of too many smtp-connections (too much spam).
I made some adjustments to prevent excessive memory usage, hopefully the problems are gone now. Read more
Virusscan: what works and what not
Thursday, November 5, 2009
A quick update on TRK's virusscan, the antivirus program wrapper in TRK.
-Grisoft AVG is broken ever since they upgraded to a newer version. The usage has completely changed and virusscan is not adapted for it. In the next version of TRK, AVG will be thrown out because version 8.5 for Linux has no more cleaning capabilities. For now it has been marked as a "dead feature" and will refuse to work in TRK
-Work is in progress for a new version of TRK and I'm adding Avast as a virusscanner.

Mankind's ticket for the future
Monday, August 17, 2009
Every now and then in human history an invention or discovery comes along that reshapes the foundation of our future.

Now may be such a time.

What if an energy source was to be invented that just takes water to generate power between 100 and 200 times greater than that of combustion from fossil fuel?
What if that energy generation was completely environment friendly and the by-product resulted in a new and very useful matter?
Well, that's exactly what Blacklight Power has done.

Build 334: network boot bug fixed
Tuesday, July 7, 2009
Just a minor change but with big impact to network booting TRK users.
As I stated before I was unable to test everything and as it turned out, network booting had some errors.
So a kind user pointed out this bug + solution in the TRK forum [1]. I immediately made the changes and tested it this time.
So now 3.3 build 334 is available for download instead of 333

Build 333: read/write support
Monday, June 29, 2009
It's been a while again, but here 's another intermediate version of TRK. I don't have much time to work on it, so this is unfinished but usable.
Main reason to release this is that people are asking me for newer driver support. So there's a pretty recent kernel 2.6.29.3 in it. But the biggest feature is the rpm support which allows you to install packages of your own.

Below is a description of the new features
-mclone version 1.1: this version of mclone supports network compression ... Read more
