What is the best/easiest way to create a Linux Live CD? Specifically, I'd like to create a Live CD that is very minimal in size, runs XFCE4, Wireshark, and has hardware drivers that make it compatible with a wide variety of laptops, ethernet drivers, and 802.11 drivers.
It needs to have an up-to-date kernel and it needs to be relatively easy to update as newer kernels become available.By minimal in size, I mean would like to get my features in to less than 300MB. I only need 1 language (English) supported and 1 keyboard layout. I'm personally partial to Ubuntu.
My friend's PC recently started acting up. He had me install Sabayon on it and everything was fine until a few days ago. Every app I try to run after the PC boots results in a segmentation fault. I figured maybe something was wrong with the HDD, so I tried to boot from a DSL liveCD to run fsck, but it wouldn't boot; it freezes right away. I then tried the Sabayon LiveDVD and got a kernel panic.Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I am completely clueless; I've never had anything like this happen before.
I Acer aspire 3620 and would like to backup whole system. My laptop has a 40Gig hdd. Is there a way I can either create an image or copy(clone) to another computer just in case I need it. If it matters I have a spare 40 gig drive on the other computer. The reason for doing this is so that I can try a system restore and if anything goes wrong I want to be able to transfer back. Also if it is posible how could I put it back and be bootable.
I'm trying to create backup/archive my Ubuntu 10.04 system files (so I can restore it in case my system get corrupted). More specifically, I'm trying to zip the important files in my root directory not including my home directory (which includes my documents which I backup separately/more frequently) to an external hard drive attached via USB (called 'My Book').
Since File Roller didn't give me quite the level of control I was looking for, I created a script that I could execute to backup and archive regularly. Here's a snippet: cd /media/"My Book"/"Linux Backups" NOW=$(date +"%b-%d-%y") LOGFILE=Backup_Root_FileSystem-$NOW.log sudo zip -r -T -v Backup_Root_FileSystem-$NOW / -x /media/'My Book'* /media* /proc* /sys* /mnt* /dev* /cdrom* /home* /'lost+found'* | tee -a $LOGFILE
I did a search and came up with many different opinions and suggestions, and I could not find any similar threads for this (if there is I must apoligize in advance and did not look hard enough). I am trying to create a backup schedule for client computers and servers; and I would like your opinion on what I came up with. Here is network infrastrusture setup:
16 client computers 6 serevrs - Primary and Secondary Web Server (RAID 1) - Primary and Secondary Domain Controller (RAID 1) - File/Print Server (RAID 5) - Backup Server (RAID 1) with USB 2.0 1TB External Drive
Of course I will evetually upgrade to Tape Drives, but I am saving up for that. Anyways I want to backup ALL client computers, Primary Web and DC server, and File/Print Server. This will be done (of course) on the Backup Server) Here is the schedule:
This is Kishore and i am new to Ubuntu and SVN and please some one help me in creating a cron job for my svn backup every day at 10:30 pm I already created a cron job which looks like 30 10 * * * svnadmin dump /home/administrator/svnrepository >svn1 when i run command directly i am getting whole backup and it's size is 3.6 gb but when i run through cron job the backup size is only 9 mb. So finally my requests are 1. cron job for taking complete svn backup at 10:30 pm daily and 2. cron job to copy the SVN backup in to my windows system in d drive and this must be run every day at 11:30 pm.
I have a serious problem in booting centos 5.4 x86 as shown in the attached picture.I tried to backup before using fsck command, but I could not make a backup of damaged lvm on hard drive.First I made a rescue centos at virtualbox, and installed centos 5.4 x86 on virtual hard disk.And I attatched damaged hard drive. S I can see this damaged hard drive's lvm as attached picture.Please let me know how to backup my files and to use "fsck.ext3 --rebuild-tree using livecd".
I was wondering which direction I should look for creating a backup of a customized Ubuntu minimal installation without remastersys. This LiveCD will live inside my arcade cabinet, so I want to keep everything as minimal as possible and remastersys installs tons of dependencies.
I am trying to create a LiveCD with the option of installation.So far, so good.Live and installation works well.Now I want to automate the installation. The problem is that when I run the install from the ISO, he said he did not could find the preseed file.In looking around, it seems that we should add this file in initrd But, I do not see how.I searched a few hours on the net in vain.
I made this thread last night~[URL]... Because my Ubuntu failed, and i have no idea why. I hadnt done anything different or risky.. and Ive no idea what to do. So, It appears Im going to have to do a re-install. Which, I really dont mind too much... (especially with Ubuntu) But It will stink if i *again* lose all my bookmarks , and lose track of all my installed programs. The programs, not as much of an issue as the bookmarks in my browser.. I would like to know, If I can somehow access the HDD from the LiveCD, So that I can create just a simple text list of all programs installed on the hdd? I cannot access my HDD except through the LiveCD So is there a way I can do this? Some kind of simple command I can toss into terminal, and have it output me a text file of all programs installed? or something? I really am totally clueless on how I would be able to save my chromium bookmarks.
I have a fedora 11 installation on my machine , with a customized partitioning of the 500GB sata HDD , I wanted to create a exact replica image on a USB stick , for future installations on other 500GB sata HDDs .. while only need to create a copy of the 5 GB (/boot + / ) while the remaining 400 GB + is a Data Logger partition which can be created by a script. I tried doing a rsync .. but have got stuck up with the bootable drive configs et all ..
I using only Livecd CentOS 5.4 and my system crash in day about ~3-5 times , so I tired and want to know why this happen. (before I used live-cd 5.3 about 3 weeks and this problem still was. info : Linux livecd. localdomain 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:33:56 EDT 2009 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux.I load system perfect and If I just browsing then I will have crash after 5 hours latter , but if I install wine , xmms,lame,xmms-mp3,k3b-mp3,flash-plugin and after installing software I will look movies from internet , or lisining music on xmms mp3 format - my system UPTIME max will be ~30 minutes or less..And I want to ask, or in Live-cd I can start Firewall ? Becouse I think it's not started and then I try to ENABLE its looks like not responding.
i am in need of linux help. iam at college and i need this back/restore script to pass this final part of an assessment. i require a backup script that will not only backup but also restore files to the relevent directories. e.g. users are instructed to store all wordprocessor files in a directory named wp. so i am needing to create a backup directory and 3 directories within that and some files within the 3 directories and then back them up ot restore them. l know i should/have to do this myself by been trying to get/understand info for the last few days and came up with zero.

i'm running a fresh install of 10.10 with a casper-rw partition off a usb drive.
I just built a computer with these specs: Asus P7P55D-E Pro Mother Board 2 x 4gb GSkill RipJaw 1333 Intel Core i5-760 cpu MSI nVidia GeFore GTX-460 Video Card
When I try to boot from a live CD/USB I always get some sort of kernel panic, most times about USB controllers and other times about cpu_idle. I have pictures of these that I can post but nothing from any logs because this is happening even before I install. I have left memtest running over night for 11 hours and had no problems, I have tried to boot with only one stick of memory, I have changed the video card to a GeForce 8800 and I have tried everything on a different motherboard and still no luck. Would I wrong to say that there is a problem with the CPU and should I return it? My only problem with all of this is that Windows installs perfectly fine on the computer with zero problems...weird.
I've been trying to install fedora 12 on my laptop, however, I've been running into kernel panics on both the live cd and the install dvd. I'm using an HP HDX16 with an Intel Core Two Duo T9400 @ 2.53ghz, and a Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT. Dunno if any other hardware might be involved. Here's the text I get on my screen:

I am trying to install Fedora on my computer but I am getting a kernel panic at liveCD boot after boot menu. It occurs to me for F13 and F14 (all x64, F14 x86 seems to boot fine but I'm trying to host a x64 guest OS on it so I need to get the x64 version to work)
My system specs: Dual Opteron 265 4GB RAM Asus K8N-DL (nVidia nForce Pro 2000, BIOS 1010)
I also tried to install F14 in some other computer (which worked flawlessly) and put the HDD into the computer in question, which gave me the same kernel panic.
I finished downloading of "openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso" file. I downloaded it by Opera WB. Then using Nero I burned this file to CD. But there is a problem with boot. Please, make a support to this problem. Maybe file, which is in a site opensuse.org is damaged?

i ma trying to learn how to configure lot of server's in Debian Distro what i want to to create backup from the original files easy to restore cos if i miss any configuration it will easy to restore omething like restore point in windows
I'm running CentOS 5.3 and would like to know what the "best" or "proper" method is to build a custom kernel using the generic kernel sources from kernel.org. Most of the references I've found talk about modifying the current CentOS kernel using the RPM way. I really want to have the latest kernel due to some important security issues that haven't been addressed in the current CentOS 5.3 kernel.
Like topic, I want to create a weekly backup of some folder to anoter partition (or external usb), compressed or not (folder also of 20/30 gb), with only root permission on file (or folder) created..This system, where I have installed debian jessie, is always on being used like a NAS..
I have installed Fedora 12 and am running it successfully. I have made a few stupid mistakes a couple of times and have had to start from scratch with a complete OS reinstall on a few occassions. I am happy with my current setup and am wondering is it possible for me to create a Live CD that has my exact configuration so that If I make a mess again, I can just stick in my backup DVD/CD's and roll back to my happy (Known to ne Working) sate. Something like System restore on Windows...... Is this possible?
I have installed Ubuntu and I make all the configurations in order to have it like I want it....My question..... Can I make an iso file somehow (cd/Dvd) of my system with all the configurations, all theservers, all the custom thinks and the home folder's content in order to have it as backup (quick installable backup) and in case of a damage to install from cd/dvd again and everything is in place?
