As result of a long work of Pierre, we are now on the track of releasing HDT-0.3.5.
This -pre1 release includes new features that needs to be tested widely to insure that we didn't introduced new bugs.
As a menu, we have:
- bootloader detection
In the disk menu, the "show disks" command reports the detected bootloader.
- Cmenu now uses the libansi
This improves the rendering and allow serial output.
Note that minicom doesn't seems to render correctly the ansi codes.
Speaking about the code itself, lots of cleanup to avoid gcc warnings.
To test this release you have 3 options :
Booting the com32 module on Syslinux 3.83 : http://www.hdt-proje..._0_3_5_pre1.c32
Booting the 2.88MB floppy image: http://www.hdt-proje...-0.3.5-pre1.img
Booting the ISO: http://www.hdt-proje...-0.3.5-pre1.iso
Feel free to report any bug report/idea/comments !
PS: We've been opening a #hdt irc channel on the freenode network to facilitate hdt discussions.
PS2: All Greetings goes to Pierre for his wonderful work on HDT.
A new feature of HDT is that it will show which bootloader is installed in the MBR. Not all bootloaders are included, because they aren't known.
Check if HDT detects your installed bootloader properly.
If it is not properly detected (Unknown mbr), report your boot loader and the hexadecimal number that is shown after "Unknown mbr".
Disks ==> Disk 1 (2 ,3,4, ...) ==> MBR:
Anyone that can provide the fbinst mbr?
