Parted Magic 2011.11.24 has been released with some major changes that might cause some issues with the multi-boot CD crowd. For a long time the pmagic-.sqfs and Initramfs would not be found on completely supported computers. This was caused by Windows based zip programs failing to convert the file names properly.Another reason is somebody would remaster the ISO image and not use the mkisofs -l option. Major bug in this release is, there was a dummy file mistakenly left in /usr/local/bin that caused the secure erase command to fail, it has been removed. Updated programs are lilosetup, TestDisk 6.13 and Linux kernel 3.1.2.
