Re: UBCD V5.2.3 is available for download

I'm not sure if this is worth updating in FDUBCD, but I checked the software list in the FreeDOS website and found that 2 programs have new versions. http://www.freedos.org/software/?prog=deltree v1.02f -> v1.02g http://www.freedos.org/software/?prog=jemm386 v5.75 -> v5.78 I don't know if these upda...

Blue border in UBCD grub4dos menu

Screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/70170658/bug_report_images/ubcd-grub4dos-color.png I can make a little cosmetic change on the grub4dos menus of UBCD. In case you didn't notice on the screenshot above, the border is now in blue instead of cyan. To do this, you need a more recent vers...

Thanks for the answer.

So it's a regression isn't it?

(FDUBCD) reason not to use 'write' command in grub4dos?

In UBCD 5.2 and above, the UBCD Freedos image has been switched from an iso image to a superfloppy image. The GRUB4DOS boot entries for FDUBCD are also changed for this. However, when I compare the boot entries between UBCD versions, I see that the old UBCD has a 'write' command in each entry, which...

Re: pm2ubcd script discussion

Understanding "-or" better than understanding "-o" is not a factor in this case, IMHO. "Understanding" is nice; "correct functionality" is better. So the question is, which operators (POSIX ones or not) are better for this context where it has to work under Linux and Windows. Potential scenario: se...

Re: consider adding or updating Super Grub2 Disk 2.00 beta 1

While you are discussing about Super Grub2 Disk, I want to inform you two that Parted Magic does include SG2D v2.00 beta.
In the Parted Magic menu, select "Extras Menu" -> "D. Super Grub2 Disk" and you can get the beta you want. (This means we have it in UBCD but not in the main part of UBCD)

Re: pm2ubcd script discussion

During the years, contributors come and go. When a change is needed and there is no knowledgeable developer around, "nothing" can be done. This type of comments (somehow repeating what is already "evident" and not really adding to the code) are not just unneeded but also unwanted by developers, but...

Because I know how this bug happens, I can provide a patch for it. Change this line: sed -e "s| initrd=/pmagic/initrd\.img | initr...

Because Ady is making a pm2ubcd script these days, I can convert this feature into a sed command that can be put into the script.

Re: pm2ubcd script discussion

Hi StopSpazzing:
Making a script in server side is not our goal. Our script is for end-users who have downloaded a Pmagic and a UBCD and want to merge Pmagic to it.

Re: Explorer's modification of CPUstress image

I make a correction to my last post.

Some laptops do not show hardware monitoring info in the BIOS. I'm not sure about EFI computers, though.

My second statements still stands. Hardware monitoring isn't very useful when your CPU is running only monitoring tool and nothing else.

I have updated to CPUStress V2.3.1 as per your suggestions. I didn't find an entry for Sensors, so I put one together. Please feel free to make corrections as you see fit. Lm-sensors is nothing useful when you use it alone. The hardware monitoring info is available already in BIOS. And I don't know...

You can now specify the "-m" option in the new CPUstress image (v2.2.1+). I believe this is what you need.
