Fedora Update Notification
2009-12-23 21:03:43

Name        : fsarchiver
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.6.2
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://www.fsarchiver.org
Summary     : Safe and flexible file-system backup/deployment tool
Description :
FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a
file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored
on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a
different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the
file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is
checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive
is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

Update Information:

New upstream version:      * Dynamic memory allocation for ntfs specific
extended-attributes in create.c      * Fix related the the ntfs attributes when
lgetxattr returns a negative size      * Saves the name of the original device
where the filesystem is stored (FSYSHEADKEY_ORIGDEV)      * Fixed enable options
in configure: "--enable-xxx" had the opposite effect (Thanks to horhe)      *
Exit with an error if the user wants to use a compression level which is not
supported (Thanks to mbiebl)      * Fixed crash when mount fails (mntbyfsa was
set to true and not clear if mount fails)      * Fixed code for ntfs symlinks
(they have to be recreated as normal files and dirs + special attributes)      *
Changed the requirement from ntfs3g-AR (advanced release) to ntfs3g >= 20091114
(standard release) for ntfs      * Improvements and fixes in the autotools build
chain files (contribution from Michael Biebl)      * Added option "-L" to
specify the label of the archive: it's just a comment about the contents      *
Detabified the sources: find . -iname "*.[ch]" -exec sed -i -e "s/[\t]/ /g" -e
's!{  !{  !g' {} \;
