This is the changelog I keep whilst creating and updating the standard images. See CreatingImage to go about making one.

I used to keep it in a CVSed text file on my PC. That was silly once the twiki went up. So now I'll maintain it here. Attachment is last version that was CVSed.

04 January 2005 0.8.9

  • Add contrib and non-free to sources.list, remove a couple of obsolete packages (libgdkcardimage0 and phpdoc).
  • Change source from debian30.uwaterloo to mirror.debian.math.
  • dist-upgrade.
  • Hrm, looks like the kernel is built with gcc 3.3.5, whilst the only 3.3 version available is 3.3.4. Bad Debian kernel builders. Anyway, rebuild vmware modules since they didn't load.
  • Edit /etc/ntp.conf to point at too, and set student.cs as the preferred.

06 January 2005 0.8.9

  • actually bump /etc/cscf-deb-version (I forgot to for .8)
  • might as well dist-upgrade while I'm here
  • fix /boot/grub/menu.lst to make it a 10 second timeout instead of 5 - we've found 5 is too short

07 January 2005 0.8.9

  • add local java repository to sources.list
  • dist-upgrade; new gdm.conf so install it and then fix it again
  • install jdk 1.4.2 and some recommended packages: mozilla-browser (!), myspell-en-us, myspell-en-gb, mozilla-psm

08 February 2005 0.8.9

  • many upgrades (incl. KDE 3.3).
  • install some language packs for firefox: de, fr-fr, ja, ko, ru-ru, zh-cn, zh-tw, and same for mozilla and thunderbird (where they existed)
  • re-add KDE to install list (why did it disappear?) - kde, kde-extras, kde-devel, kde-devel-extras, and some il8n packages: de, fr, ja, ru, zhcn, zhtw, kdevelop
  • edited /etc/skel/bash_profile to fix "The default .bash_profile should have uncommented the part that will add ~/bin to the PATH if it exists (and the MANPATH) (LawrenceFolland)"
  • add a few more packages: mozilla-thunderbird-enigmail (now we can document how to do PGP stuff), mozilla-bonobo (monkeys are good), mozplugger. I'd been hoping for a flash plugin, but I bet that won't ever happen. Perhaps we should mirror that like we do with Java.

25 February 2005

  • Let's release this one. dist-upgrade as of this morning, only a few packages changed.

31 March 2005

  • I never did get the February image built. dist-upgrade and 300 packages updated. Build this one.
  • change mirror to mirror.cscf.
  • the image has been complaining about the shared partition for some time, something about MBR not matching, so boot Windows to re-create that partition.

18 April 2005

  • dist-upgrade, but no new image generated.

May-June-July 2005 0.9.0

  • this was an internal test image, first whack at an Ubuntu-based.

13 July 2005 0.9.1

  • first cut at a release Ubuntu-based image. Built on 5.04 "Hoary Hedgehog".
