2017-01-26 -
- Update to version 4.1:
* Now the default for mkfs for filesystems smaller than 512 MB is
64 / 32 sectors
* The parsing of octal character specifications for filenames in
the -u and -d 25 options of fsck now works.
* Fixed a possible fatlabel crash when writing a label to an
unlabelled filesystem
* Testsuite is now available
2016-05-07 -
- Update to 4.0
* Switch build system to autotools.
* Fixed data corruption errors in fsck.fat Writing to the third
to last cluster on FAT12 with an odd number of clusters would
corrupt the following cluster.
* The automatic alignment of data clusters that was added in
3.0.8 and broken for FAT32 starting with 3.0.20 has been
- Small spec file cleanup
- Drop no longer needed dosfstools-suse-dirs.patch
2015-06-03 -
- Update to 3.0.28
* mkfs.fat now allows choosing 0xF0 as the media byte which was
previously rejected.
* mkfs.fat now supports the --invariant option to facilitate
testing mkfs.fat itself.
* Bugs fixed in fsck.fat are a read one byte beyond the end of
an allocated array when checking some FAT12 filesystems, and
checking that the first cluster of a file as specified in the
directory entry is not 1.
- Cleanup spec file with spec-cleaner
2015-05-11 -
- fix url
2015-01-16 -
- updated to 3.0.27:
* fsck.fat: Don't print version string every time -v is
* Fix attempt to rename root dir in fsck due to uninitialized
* Support long file names in volume labeling code
- upstream changed
2014-09-23 -
- Drop gpg-offline build-time requirement; this is now handled by
the local source validator
2014-06-26 -
- added fsck.{v,}fat and mkfs.{v,}fat compat symlinks in /sbin
- call spec-cleaner
2014-03-17 -
- updated to 3.0.26:
* Fix "odd" files created by frequent power-loss.
2014-03-06 -
- updated to 3.0.25:
* Prevent corruption of FAT during fsck on 64 bit platforms.
unsigned long is 64 bit on x86-64, which means set_fat was writing two
entries, which corrupts the next entry. This can cause loss of data in
another file.
* Fixed remaining 64 bit build warnings.
2013-11-25 -
- updated to 3.0.24:
* Fixed dosfsck on big endian platforms.
