Re: Remote SystemRescue CD (More details added)

1) I suggest you install sysresccd on the hard-drive so that the cdrom is not required. You will just have an extra entry in grub. 2) You can add automatic network and rootpass configuration in the sysresccd grub entry, you can even configure vncserver to start automatically. 3) You shoud also read ...

Re: Error 20

The error messages tells you how to mount a partition in read-only mode: mount -o remount,ro /dev/sda10 But you should not do that with the root filesystem. You should either boot from a rescuecd such as SystemRescueCd which has fsarchiver, to backup /dev/sda10 when it's not mounted. Or you should u...

Re: Error 20

You are trying to save /dev/sda10 which is mounted in read-write mode. So the archive may not be 100% consistent as the filesystem may change during the backup. You have two solutions: 1) remount /dev/sda is read-only mode. Then no change can happen during the "fsarchiver savefs" and we are sure the...

Re: Fsarchiver logging howto?

The logfile is always /var/log/fsarchiver.log. The "-d" option is just used to increase the level of verbosity of the messages that go to the logfile. It does the same thing as "-v" for the console.

Re: Error correction codes to recover (not ignore) damaged f

I have tested vdmfec and it seems to be working. In fact vdmfec is just a wrapper around the following fec implementation: http://info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/fec.html http://info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/vdm98/vdm980702.tgz 1) create a random file in /var/tmp/file01 2) vdmfec -b 256k /var/tmp/file01 >| /var...

Re: Making archive of Crypto_luks partition

fsarchiver works at the filesystem level. You have to give it the device that contains the clear filesystem which is /dev/mapper/something.
In other words you have to use cryptsetup to open the encrypted volume and then give fsarchiver the un-encrpyted device.

Re: Error correction codes to recover (not ignore) damaged f

So it sounds that zfec and vdmfec are the two best options. Both are under the GPL license. vdmfec is quite old but still available in the latest debian. zfec is very recent but cannot find any package. As these libraries are not available in all linux distribution and the real code seems to be quit...

Re: Error correction codes to recover (not ignore) damaged f

Maybe that sort of library, but can't find a package for fedora. http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/vdmfec vdmfec reads an input stream and adds error correction blocks so that large consecutive sections of the output stream may be corrupted, and the data recovered. For example, diskettes typically ...

Re: cloning bootable Windows 7

The Windows partition must be active and it must be a primary partition, it won't work with logical partitions (inside an extended partition).
