Even more mirrors + backup site in place
Wednesday, March 1, 2006

Due to massive publicity for TRK 3.1 and the heavy load on current
mirrors, I 've been offered yet another mirror today. This time by
the nice folks of Mailshield [1], Australia. With a 100mbit download
link, your copy of TRK should come in like a charm. Thanks for that!

Also, I 've copied the contents of this server to an alternate
server I 've got running somewhere. So if you find this site to be
offline, maybe Google will tell you about the backup server at
backup.trinityhome.org/trk ... Read more
Just in time: another mirror for TRK
Wednesday, March 1, 2006

Still my mirror from Hyguard [1] seems to be down and Planetmirror
[2] failed to rsync the latest iso, here comes the rescue for the
Trinity Rescue: the kind people of the Open Source Lab of Oregon
State University [3] offered to mirror TRK on their servers, so
downloads should be available again and guaranteed for the future. I
hope this will take some of the load away from Hyguard [4] and make
their site available again.

Distrowatch visitors: please be patient
Tuesday, February 28, 2006

The release of Trinity Rescue Kit 3.1 got published at
distrowatch.com [1]. Apparently the attention is a bit too much for
my webserver and even for my 10mbit mirror Hyguard [2]. So if you get
to see this page but are unable to download from any of the mirrors,
please come back later.
Also, the Planetmirror [3] mirror only rsyncs every 24 hours, so it
's probably not up-to-date yet.
I 've already downsized the background a little and tweaked the
bandwidth of my server, so things should ... Read more
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 mirror back-online

Dunno what happened, it 's just back. Thanks guys from Hyguard! 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].
