Postby fsmithred » December 19th, 2018, 10:11 pm

New versions of refractasnapshot and refractainstaller are available ifor Debian Buster/Sid and Devuan Beowulf/Ceres. You can get them from the refracta page at sourceforge or from the Devuan Ceres repo. The ones on sf are signed with my key and have ~fsr in the version. Other than that, they are the same as the ones in the repo.

refractainstaller-base (9.5.0)

* Set root path to include sbin directories. (for Buster/Beowulf)
* Eliminate sudo/su question in wrapper script. Try sudo first.
* Shorten log name to refractainstaller.log
* Changed yad version test to 0.27 or newer needed. (This is a guess.)
* Changed wording for sshd_config (s/without-password/prohibit-password)

refractasnapshot-base (10.2.0)

* Set root path to include sbin directories. (for Buster/Beowulf)
* Fixed missing grub splash in uefi boot.
* Choose task first, get disk report only with full snapshot.
* Put report in text-info window so it has scroll bars and fits on screen.
* Merge grub-efi warning into main report.
* Automate the encryption confusion:
* Test initrd for cryptsetup. Rebuild with CRYPTSETUP=y if needed.
* Test initrd for conf.d/resume and cryptroot. Remove if present.
* Update ssh_config wording.
* Replaced dysfunctional progress bar in check_space() with info window.
* Test for config file after command-line options.
* Changed name of log to refractasnapshot.log
* Make help screen available within program.
* Added '-iso-level 3' to xorriso command for isos larger than 4GB.
