Release 2.2.8-1

This release incorporates a number of significant changes since 1.38.

These release notes refer to the rpm packaging only.
Please refer to the release notes and changelog in the
tarball or on sourceforge for complete information on all changes.

* Miscellaneous *

Force stripping of binaries for SuSE packages.

Fixed bug 1037.

Added nobuild_mtx switch to surpress build of mtx package.

Added missing files now required by the rescue configure script.

Corrected dist target for rhel5.

Corrected QT dependency name for RedHat flavors.

Added fix for RHEL5 64 bit QT paths.

Added build target for su103.

Added build targets for rhel5 and clones.

Build target added for Scientific Linux (RHEL clone) thanks to Jon

Merged Otto Mueller's patch changing some directory locations for FHS
but retaining the script directory as /etc/bacula.

gnome-console and wxconsole have been renamed to bgnome-console and

* bat (Bacula Admin Tool) *

A new subpackage has been added for the new bat QT-based GUI
administration tool.
This requires QT >= 4.2

--define "build_bat 1"

If you encounter problems building the bat package on platforms where 
you do have the proper QT4 support (QT >= 4.2) it may be necessary to 
adjust your $QTDIR and $PATH variables. On Fedora 8 it was necessary to:

export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt4;export PATH=/usr/lib/qt4/bin:$PATH;rpmbuild

* Gnome console dropped on some platforms *

The gconsole package has been dropped on older gnome platforms (gtk+ <
Changes in the gnome api and code produced by Glade no longer build. 
In addition, the tray monitor now fails to build on < 2.10 platforms.
gconsole is now not built on the following platforms:
rh7, rh8, rh9, rhel3 (and clones), fc1, fc3, fc4, mdk, su9, su10

* Third party packager support *

A new build tag added to support third party packagers to replace the
information in the Packager: tag in the rpm. Invoking
--define "contrib_packager Your Name <your-emmail@xxxxxxxx>"
will substitute your packager identification.

Users interested in building packages for platforms not normally
should examine the platforms/contrib-rpm directory in the source code.

* Option to build client only *

A build define to build the client rpm package only added. This turns 
off all database builds, gnome console and wxconsole.
--define "build_client_only 1"

* Python support added *

Support for compiling with python scripting support added. This is off 
by default but can be enabled with:
--define "build_python 1"
Released binary packages are built with python support.

* Database update *

The 2.x release requires an update to the bacula database structure
from version 9 to version 10. A pre-install routine has been added to
check for databases older than 9. In that event the install will exit
with an error message indicating that the database must be updated to
version 9 before installing this upgrade. Scripts for updating older
database formats are available for download in the bacula-updatedb
rpm package. In the event a version 9 database is detected a
routine will update the database after creating a backup file in the 
bacula working directory.

* SQLite Upgrade *

For users of the sqlite package, from 2.2.7 onward sqlite3 replaces 
sqlite2. Your sqlite2 database file (/var/lib/bacula/bacula.db) is not 
compatible with sqlite3. During an upgrade the pre-install script will 
check for this situation. If found it will dump your catalog data to
file /var/lib/bacula/bacula_backup.sql, rename your old catalog file to 
/var/lib/bacula/bacula.db.old, and exit. You should then re-run the rpm 
upgrade. After the upgrade is complete restore your catalog data with 
the following commands (as root):

cd /var/lib/bacula
/usr/lib/bacula/sqlite/sqlite3 $* bacula.db < bacula_backup.sql
chown bacula.bacula bacula.db

* Platform Notes *

The spec file currently supports building on the following platforms:

# RedHat builds
--define "build_rh7 1"
--define "build_rh8 1"
--define "build_rh9 1"

# Fedora Core build
--define "build_fc1 1"
--define "build_fc3 1"
--define "build_fc4 1"
--define "build_fc5 1"
--define "build_fc6 1"
--define "build_fc7 1"
--define "build_fc8 1"

# Whitebox Enterprise build
--define "build_wb3 1"

# RedHat Enterprise builds
--define "build_rhel3 1"
--define "build_rhel4 1"
--define "build_rhel5 1"

# CentOS build
--define "build_centos3 1"
--define "build_centos4 1"
--define "build_centos5 1"

# Scientific Linux build
--define "build_sl3 1"
--define "build_sl4 1"
--define "build_sl5 1"

# SuSE build
--define "build_su9 1"
--define "build_su10 1"
--define "build_su102 1"
--define "build_su103 1"

# Mandrake 10.x build
--define "build_mdk 1"

# Mandriva build
--define "build_mdv 1"

* Database build options *

Database support (must select one or build client only)

MySQL support:
--define "build_mysql 1"
# OR if using mysql 4.x define this
# currently: Mandrake 10.x, SuSE 9.x & 10.0, RHEL4, fc4
--define "build_mysql4 1"
# OR if using mysql 5.x define this
# currently: SuSE 10.1 and higher, fc5 and higher

This build switch remains but should no longer be necessary. The
configure script 
was adjusted in the 1.39 development series to correctly detect the

64 bit libraries.

--define "build_bat 1"

Enable python support:
--define "build_python 1"
