Fedora 10 Update: fsarchiver-0.4.5-1.fc10



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-2949
2009-03-23 15:16:47
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : fsarchiver
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.4.5
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.fsarchiver.org
Summary     : Safe and flexible file-system backup/deployment tool
Description :
FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a
file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored
on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a
different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the
file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is
checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive
is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Update to new upstream release (0.4.5):     * Bug fix: empty files must not be
copied with small files, and there is no need to write the checksum  * Bug fix:
commands with big output were blocking until the pipe was read which was never
done (thanks to Setsuna)  * Bug fix: show all the restored files at restfs
including the small files which are compressed in a single block   * Added
optimized management of small files (several small files data in a single
compressed block)  * Bug fix: only umount the partitions that have been mounted
by fsarchiver at the end of an operation  * Option '-a' allows users to run
savefs on a mounted partition when the mount options for acl/xattr are not used
* Improved the documentation about fsarchiver internals in the sources (about
multithreading and the fileformat)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update fsarchiver' at the command line.
