UBCD V5.0.0 available for download

#1 Post by Victor Chew » Thu May 13, 2010 1:27 pm

UBCD V5.0.0 is now available for download.

Torrent: ubcd50.iso.torrent
md5sum: d667b52a34a7fe75d64ab94e12097cda
sha1sum: b805801112eaaf055ff3a41871955f7a908a8425

OK, this is the final FINALrelease of UBCD V5.0, warts and all. This is slightly different from the version posted here. Here are the changes:

- Updated UBCD FreeDOS to V1.37. \ubcd\custom\custom.ini is processed together with \ubcd\dosapps\ubcd.ini. Also added "-m" to "mdiskchk.com -b" else the ubcdcmd= parameter passed to the ISO is not detected.
- Added missing rm.exe and cat.exe to \ubcd\tools\win32\unxutils.
- Updated HDClone to V3.9.1.
- Updated SeaTools for DOS to V2.20.
- Updated AVIRA AntiVir Rescue System to V3.6.9-20100512182845.

The first change lets you isolate custom FreeDOS apps to "c:\ubcd-extracted\ubcd\custom", instead of having to modify "c:\ubcd-extracted\ubcd\dosapps".

The second change adds some missing files so that the antivirus scripts can run.

If you have the older ubcd50.iso (md5sum: 8ca82598a488b6fffc4173bf7af419ad), you can download this 20+MB xdelta3 file and patch the old ISO. You need the xdelta3 EXE from here.


Code: Select all

xdelta3 -d -s ubcd50.iso ubcd50.xdelta3 ubcd50final.iso
to generate "ubcd50final.iso" and check that the md5sum is "d667b52a34a7fe75d64ab94e12097cda".

it's been a chore to download this via torrent when there's just one seed ;), but as every has finished downloading by now, there are tons of seeders and it shouldn't be a problem anymore.

However, here's an HTTP link for those who don't want to use torrent:
(yes, you will see a redirection page on which you will have to click the link again).

Thank you! :D

One small question. In ubcd2iso.cmd why was "-m fdubcd-extracted" added? It has broken my build script which is pretty simple

Code: Select all

call files\ubcd\tools\win32\ubcd2iso\ubcd2iso.cmd files ..\..\UBCD5Builder.iso
If I pass the directory params in quotes there is no change, but if I change to

Code: Select all

call files\ubcd\tools\win32\ubcd2iso\ubcd2iso.cmd \files ..\..\UBCD5Builder.iso
I get a message saying mkisofs cannot find files\boot\isolinux\isolinux.bin

I have removed your mod for the time being so I can resume building
