Hi folks! I felt I needed to do something for a long time. I had too big of plans for TRK and was unable to work them out (because they were so big). So I did something smaller. I figured many people could  do with some updated hardware support, so here it is.

Just a beta, but with a very recent kernel 4.7.0 and up-to-date ntfs-3g driver:

 http://trinityhome.org/beta/trinity-rescue-kit.3.4-build-397.iso

All other changes that have been done since the last stable can be read at https://bitbucket.org/harakiri/trk/commits/all 

Leave a message on Facebook page, the forum is a zombie.

 …or how the question was asked yesterday: "Is TRK dead? or are you?"

Well, no, not really. But I’ve been very busy with my daytime job and family expansion lately. But some work has been done, changes have been committed. People following it a bit know that issue tracking has been setup at bitbucket and can follow progress there and report bugs in a proper way instead of through the forum (which unfortunately I’ve been neglecting lately, partly because people tend to ask the same 100 times or more answered questions all over again).

So if you want to follow development of TRK a little, look at bitbucket: https://bitbucket.org/harakiri/trk

If you want the latest beta version of TRK (yes, from 21-03-2014), download it at http://trinityhome.org/beta/ (not linking this to avoid bots sucking up bandwidth on TRK isos)

Biggest new features include kernel 3.8.0 (for more recent hardware support). Experimentally a 64-bit kernel version has been published there as well (build 386). There ‘s a big rewrite of ‘virusscan’, some new features added to mclone like remapping disk devices and cloning over a router. Also full dhcp server support is in there for standalone switches but with failsafe that detects a regular dhcp server so TRK doesn’t mess up a corporate network. All together 52 commits you can read upon on bitbucket + 9 reported issues since build 372

Also worth mentionning: a fork of TRK has seen the daylight and it’s called Mango (MAssive Network GhOst).
The author Juan Carlos Pineda told me this about it:

"For my job I need often to clone a lot of classroom computers and I’ve modified TRK to make more friendly this task. Basically I’ve added two shells to the TRK startup: – One to self configure a valid IP in case no are DHCP servers on the LAN. – Another one to make a friendly mclone front-end. The result of this compilation I’ve called it MANGO (Massive Network Ghost) and is very useful for me."

Project page can be found here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mangomassivenetworkghost/

Well, that ‘s it for now. Hope you are convinced TRK is not dead

Finally, after much annoyances with my registrar IN, I changed over the domain name trinityhome.org to Easyhost. The problem with IN was that they failed to recognise there was a problem with updating the nameserver records. This resulted in only 1 nameserver being accessible, even more the one behind the most unreliable and slow link. Anyway, I ‘ve added a 3rd nameserver, records are ok at the toplevel as well as my own DNS’s, so you should see no more outages by a DNS failure anymore. Oh yes, TRK development is still ongoing inspite of what some of you might fear.

Sorry people for all of you who tried to reach trinityhome.org the last 2 days (July 1 and 2). The server itself was not down actually, it was the whole datacenter. Apparently the fibre optic cables had been cut in the street and it took a while to locate where. The cables have been mended and we’re back. Next time I’ll make offsite backups and bring an alternative server online.

Trinity Rescue Kit just donated 500$ of your donations to the Ocean Cleanup project, which aims on cleaning up the ocean of ALL plastic within 5 years and make some money of it doing so. I believe science with an economical benefit is the ONLY solution to saving the planet and mankind. The idea you had about cleaning up the ocean from plastic debris with large booms is basically what I’ve been thinking about as well for years. I’m just not an engineer who could work out such an idea. People, the pollution of our seas might be the biggest problem our planet might face. If the oceans are dead, our biggest supplier of oxygen and co² conversion gets lost (plankton accounts for most co² conversion in the world). The oceans are even more important than the rainforests. So if you can, make a donation or at least share and like the project.

 It ‘s been a while again since you heard some news about TRK, but it’s back. Development has resumed and this time I will try to make it more structured and collaborative. Therefore I did a good cleanup of unneeded files, stripped all binaries and libraries, removed the dead and buried Trinity Remote Support Pack and upgraded the kernel to the latest 3.4.6.

Next, I published everything on bitbucket as a Git repository (binaries included). And it’s open for everyone to fork, clone, submit, push to your fork and request a pull to me for the main TRK repository. Just create an account, install Git, fork, clone and start working. I will soon publish an updated version of the TRK development and build virtual machine which has Git installed.

If you like to contribute and you know nothing about Git, try this site first: http://gitimmersion.com/

Next, read this on how to fork: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Forking+a+bitbucket+Repository
The repo can be found at the following address: https://bitbucket.org/harakiri/trk

People who are not interested in contributing code but like to report a bug: please use the Bitbucket provided issuetracking system. I will not be using the TRK forum anymore as bugtracking system but only as a usage discussion board.

I don’t have this much experience with development methods like version control and issue tracking. If anyone has suggestions on improvements, please let me know.

Folks, for those who have made a post on the TRK forum between December 21 and now, December 28: it’s gone, I ‘m sorry. I had to restore a backup since the forum was so sickened by spambots who had posted about 70.000 topics, whereas up to then there were only about 5.000 over the course of 8 years.

Yes, yes, everyone keeps changing their AV engine download location and I have to follow them. I thought many of them had broken permanently, but a vigilant TRK user directed me to all new working download locations of the antivirus soft.
Here ‘ s a status update:
-BitDefender failed to properly install. This alternate version installs and runs alright. Make sure you have enough RAM or run ‘getswap‘ first in a machine with 512Mb or less
-F-prot download location was broken. A new location and version was found, but it seems to be working still after a quick test.
-Clamav is updated from 0.97.2 to 0.97.3. Works.
-Vexira is still broken in the update process.
-Avast is unchanged.

So that’s 4 out of 5 AV engines working again. Running a live session of TRK virusscan like ‘virusscan -a bde,fprot,clam,avs’ will clean your computer 4 times ^^

Yesterday I did a checkup on TRK and found out a few virusscan antivirus-engine links had broken or were at newer versions.
As TRK ‘virusscan’ users may know, ‘virusscan’ is a wrapper script that fetches external AV engines from the internet and uses a pointer where to find them from a url which it gets on a secure connection to trinityhome.org
Here ‘s the status of the 5 AV engines integrated in TRK ‘virusscan’:

-ClamAV: updated from 0.97.1 to 0.97.2. Update will happen automatically when you fire up ‘virusscan’
-BitDefender: still the same engine, but their download location had changed. Works again.
-Vexira: updated program and download location is updated, but syntax seems to have changed for update program. So unless you manually update it once installed, it’s pretty useless until I bring out a new version of TRK (or instructions on how to modify your TRK)
-F-prot: unchanged, still working
-Avast: unchanged, still working

Furthermore, I started some work on integrating Linux 3.0.x into TRK, but the aufs patch is giving me headaches, so I have to wait for a stable version from the Aufs people.

That ‘s all I ‘ll have time for. Very busy, sorry folks.
