CrashRecoveryKit v2.4.21-mdk91 based on Mandrake 9.1 i586 was released on
23 september 2003.
* 23 september 2003, Release of CRK v.2.4.21-mdk91. crash2421-mdk91.iso is

* 15 september 2003, An enhanced version CRK v.2.4.21-rpmrescue is released
which has a special RPM rescue und recovery util added. Sofar the RedHat

however has a dynamic shared elf binary for /bin/rpm. This has caused a

which installs symbolic links so that redhat's rpm can still be run with
the option --root=/mnt if e.g. the root filesystem is mounted on /mnt.
* 21 july 2003, To be able to resize your NTFS partition on your desktop
PC or laptop i created a new iso called crash2421-ntfs.iso which is
also based on RedHat 9. kernel 2.4.21 has been patched to include NTFS
driver v2.1.4a from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/.
ntfsprogs-1.7.1-1 has also been added. These ntfs programs contain
the tool ntfsresize which performs the Non-destructive Resizing of an
NTFS Volume. I have tested ntfsresize a couple of times and sofar
it just has worked ok. a small HOWTO.ntfs has been added.
