  • Remove fsck.* to don't have a fsck on vfat on boot (Maybe we can

8 july 1999 Chmouel Boudjnah <chmouel at>

  • Rewriting the .spec files to obsoletes mkdosfs-ygg for new dosfstools.
  • initialization of spec file.
  • 2.2 :
  • Added dosfsck/COPYING, putting dosfsck officially under GPL (Werner
      and I agree that it should be GPL).
  • mkdosfs: Allow creation of a 16 bit FAT on filesystems that are too
      small for it if the user explicitly selected FAT16 (but a warning
      is printed). Formerly, you got the misleading error message "make
      the fs a bit smaller".
  • dosfsck: new option -y as synonym for -y; for compability with
      other fs checkers, which also accept this option.
  • dosfsck: Now prints messages similar to e2fsck: at start version
      and feature list; at end number of files (and directories) and
      number of used/total clusters. This makes the printouts of *fsck at
      boot time nicer.
  • dosfsck: -a (auto repair) now turns on -f (salvage files), too. -a
      should act as non-destructive as possible, so lost clusters should
      be assigned to files. Otherwise the data in them might be
      overwritten later.
  • dosfsck: Don't drop a directory with lots of bad entries in
      auto-repair mode for the same reason as above.
  • dosfsck: avoid deleting the whole FAT32 root dir if something is
      wrong with it (bad start cluster or the like).
  • general: also create symlinks {mkfs,fsck}.vfat.8 to the respective
      real man pages.
