Version 2.7 of Gujin

Release Notes: Gujin can now run the newest kernel found automatically (by scanning the last modification date), it can scan file with *.iso extension and seach kernels/initrd inside them, and it is easier to install because pre-built packages for Debian and Fedora for both i386 and amd64 are provided for download. There is a new man page for the installer, a new option to remove the iso+superfloppy format from an ISO file, modifications to create filesystem images with holes to save space, and to detect bad blocks on real devices and mark them in the FAT filesystem. Quite a few bugs have also been fixed.

    Release Notes: This release improved the German translation, fixed problems with installing on OpenSuSE, improved detection of partition labels for filling the /boot/gujin.cmd file, and fixed a problem with generating the package on new Ubuntu versions.

      Release Notes: This release fixes a bug related to BIOS disk detection, improves the default /boot/gujin.cmd generated to make kernel updates use the same Linux commandline, fixes a bug in the TSR emulating a disk from a file, and enables booting the latest (by date) Linux kernel without user intervention.

      •  08 Feb 2012 23:05

        Release Notes: This release fixes a lot of bugs, like installing the bootloader and loading a Linux kernel on a highly fragmented ext2 filesystem (Fedora default /boot partition), probes files in a FAT /boot directory even if the size of this directory is null (now the standard), better handles the case of partitions without labels, and works better in VirtualBox. Gujin can now also load kernels on filesystems made with a different sector size than the underlying device allows, for instance having a 512 bytes/sector superfloppy written on a CDROM/DVDRAM with 2048 bytes/sectors.

          Release Notes: This release fixed a problem where Shift-F1 was not editing the Linux command line like Shift-F2..F12. A VirtualBox bug is now detected to disable VESA linear graphics. GCC 4.6 compilation fixes were added. A problem with the HP Compaq 8000 Elite BIOS was corrected. A file named is provided as an example to patch the init scripts of a Linux live CD to get it to boot from the live CD image file using Gujin.

          •  08 Dec 2010 22:55

            Release Notes: This version fixes bugs and regressions, removes the hard-coded sector size of disks (manages disks with 4096 bytes per logical sectors), improves booting live CDs stored on the hard disk as file images, and improves the "tiny" bootloaders for quick booting of simple configurations (like a PC with a single Linux distribution on an ext4 filesystem, or a live CD-ROM based on Gujin's own El-Torito bootloader).
