Subject[announce] Gujin GPL bootloader version 2.8.5
There is a new version v2.8.5 of the GPL Gujin boot/linux loader at http://gujin.org (i.e. sourceforge)
with bug fixes and improvements, and Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora packages in 32 and 64 bits for easy
installation on i386/amd64 PC.

This version contains quite a lot of bug fixes, changelog is:
- Fix (error loading file 0x3401) loading kernel on highly fragmented ext2 partitions
- Fix a bug when /boot/gujin.ebios created not contiguous
 (hdparm --fibmap /boot/gujin.ebios), and enable uninstalling those not contigous
 files (happens on highly fragmented 1024 bytes/block ext2 partitions)
- Fix a problem when MBR has 0x29 signature but invalid bytes/sectors
- Fix a bug where /boot directories were not probed on FAT (directory entries contains
 null size on FAT)
- Behaves better when partitions do not have a label, use PBR label or Gujin "part n"
- no more compile with "-funsigned-char", fix bugs about mixed sector sizes in iso images
(loading kernel on 512 bytes/sector FAT filesystem written on a CDROM/DVDRAM)
- add "relro" linker
flags for the installer
- Re-enable PCI I/O space of PCI IDEs if disabled by BIOS (when BIOS finds no disk)
- fix possible problem with BIOS disk nb_heads=256
- add docs for changing Linux parameter by Shift-Fn or Shift-mouse, and
 Control-Break behaviour
- add probing for /sys/block/sr[0-9] for "gujin --report-signature"
- update to support PCI BIOS v3.0+ which is not fully backward compatible,
 and use VirtualBox bug.
- Fix to handle older HP BIOS bugs
- update GPG signature, add new encryption/signature subkeys

Downloads at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gujin/files/

Have fun,
Etienne.
