GRML - Knoppix for sysadmins and users of text tools

grml is a bootable CD (Live-CD) based on Knoppix and Debian. grml includes a
collection of GNU/Linux software especially for users of texttools and system
administrators. grml provides automatic hardware detection. You can use grml for
example as a rescue system, for analyzing systems/networks or as a working
environment. It is not necessary to install anything to a harddisk, you don't
even need a harddisk to run it. Due to on-the-fly decompression grml includes
about 2 GiB of software and documentation on the CD.


Release 0.2 - Codename Satura (20050110)

Fixed several bugs, including:
  #10: Please remove CD, close cdrom drive...is missing on reboot/halt
  #11: grml-0.1: starting xserver fails with '(EE) No core pointer device specified'
  #12: grml-0.1: WLAN Problem: Linksys WPC11 doesn't work

New grml-scripts:

  * grml-mutt:    shellscript for configuring mailclient mutt via dialog
  * grml-slrn:    shellscript for configuring newsreader slrn via dialog
  * grml-postfix: shellscript for configuring postfix using TLS
  * grml-nessus:  shellscript for preparing grml-system for use with nessus[d]

New kernel:

  * 2.6.9-grml:   vanilla kernel (from kernel.org) including several patches
                  more information available on http://grml.org/kernel/

New hardware detection:

  * Additional use of hotplug and discover mechanism to detect hardware.

New bootparameters/cheatcodes:

  * ssh:      use via ssh=password (adjust password), this will set the
              password for user grml and autostart a ssh-server.
              Notice that the provided password can be read from
              /proc/cmdline -> change the password as soon as possible!
  * passwd:   use via passwd=password, this will set the password for
              user grml so login via getty

  * some other bootparameters related to hardware detection, see
    file grml-cheatcodes for details (grml-cheatcodes.txt on CD-ROM,
    online at grml.org/files/)

Special new features:

  * CPU-detection on startup and start of cpudyn/powernowd depending
    on type of CPU
  * htop running on tty11
  * improved zsh configuration (prompt, completition,...)
  * zsh-lovers (see 'man zsh-lovers') updated and available in
    PDF-, PS- and HTML-format
  * grml2hd: install grml to harddisc
    Notice: First release, alpha-status - please use with caution!


 * Updated all packages to Debian Unstable branch by 20050109.
 * Updated bootparameter 'memtest' to Memtest86+ V1.40.
