Ubuntu :: Ghost Image Program Installed On 9.10?

Mar 29, 2011

there i have a computer running ubuntu 9.10 set up as a server in my classroom. I have ftp http and an internal mail server set up on it as well as other settings. I really want to make a copy of the system so i have a back up of the os. i have figured out that i can attach a hdd to the computer and copy the os via the command line with an ubuntu live cd but this only works as long as the computer that is receiving the backup is exactly the same or the same computer. I would like to transfer the image to a portable hdd then install the os onto virtual box ( a virtual machine). Is there a way to do this without buying expensive software.dose ubuntu 9.10 have a product similar to Norton ghost.

Dec 3, 2010

I would like to create a Suse 11.3 Live CD with Acronis on it so that I can boot from any computer, use Acronis, and still have some Linux commands available to me. Is this possible? I could part with OpenOffice.org to provide room for Acronis.

I currently have Acronis selectable in my grub menu, and it runs from my hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Making A Ghost Image Of Hard Drive?

Oct 6, 2010

Is there a software utility out there for Ubuntu that can make a backup of the hard drive my Ubuntu 10.4 is installed on?

I have used Symantec Norton Ghost for Windows before. Is there a similar program for Ubuntu? I would also like to use the backup of the hard drive to reinstall on the same drive after a format.

Also, what would happen to the GRUB loader if I were to copy it back onto the hard drive?

Fedora Installation :: 10 Displays Ghost Image Once Booted?

May 26, 2009

I'm having a problem which seems restricted to Fedora. I'm trying to install Fedora 10 on a dual boot system. I have Windows 7 RC installed. When I boot the live CD to run Fedora, my screen ends up displaying Fedora on the left half, and bits of the Windows shut down screen on the right. I cannot access the Fedora menus, they are pushed off to the left out of view.

I previously experienced the same problem with an earlier version of Fedora, with the HD loaded with Ubuntu and Win 7 beta. Fedora would boot but display either the last Ubuntu or last Windows screen to the right, whichever had been running last. No other version of Linux exhibits this behavior that I have found, but my experience is limited. Is there a particular procedure that I need to run to get Fedora to use the entire video display? Does Fedora need to be installed first?

Hardware is: ASUS P5E VM HDMI, using the integrated graphics, display is a 32" LCD TV HDMI input, hard drive is a Samsung 500Gb.

General :: Obtain The Raw Image From A Norton Ghost File?

May 19, 2010

I have a Norton Ghost .gho file, and basicly I want to extract the raw image out of this, for example to use with with tools like dd. (So using any symantec/windows tools is not an option). Is there any open source tool which can deal with these .gho files ?

(Note: the.gho file I'm using is a sector based one, and not a file-based one, which implies that things such as Ghost explorer won't work either (see this page)

Software :: The Equivalent Of Norton Ghost Partition>To Image?

May 29, 2011

i have two hard drives,sda sdb. sda1 contains my xp,i want to work with windows on sdb1
bcoz of performance reason. ive used partimage to create an image and restore it to
sdb2 while doing so im getting an error that the sdb1 partition is too small ..,this makes me understand that partimage copies all the partition bit by bit with probably the boot sector as well. but thats not the behaivor i want. i belive what i did so far is like doing ghost with partition->to partition. it means the destination partition shuld be greater or the same.. is there any ghost partition->to image like in linux? partimage only works on partitions?(i.e cant do disk image) i think my answer is somewhere around copy the files with cp, and tar gz them.

Software :: Backup / Ghost Live Debian Server?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a live production server with different partitions that I would like to backup/ghost so that if the server crashes, I would have an easy way to restore it. My server is running Debian Lenny, it's got 2 x 2TB hard disks in RAID1 mode.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 4.6G 1002M 3.4G 23% /
tmpfs 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /lib/init/rw
udev 10M 744K 9.3M 8% /dev
tmpfs 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 122M 15M 102M 13% /boot
/dev/sda6 4.6G 289M 4.1G 7% /home
/dev/sda8 942M 18M 877M 2% /tmp
/dev/sda9 1.8T 3.9G 1.7T 1% /var

As you can see, total disk usage is about 5GB. I can transfer that to another server on the network.What would be the best way to perform a complete backup without stopping the server and how could I restore that backup in case of emergency ? After browsing the entire Web, I couldn't find the answer that would make my life easy, so I give it a try here

Ubuntu Installation :: Make A Full Disk Backup Using Acronis And Try Out 11.04 Beta?

Apr 1, 2011

Firstly I've never (successfully) upgraded before using update manager -d but I've only tried once. I'm on 10.10 at the moment but I want to make a full disk backup using Acronis and try out 11.04 beta 1 so if I can't boot (like with the 11.04 Alpha 3) I'm ok.

What I want to know is if I upgrade to beta 1 it will install new things and settings, if beta 2 is released and I upgrade to that (after having beta 1 installed) will it overwrite all the settings again? Or will I be able to spend time set beta 1 up nice how I want it (if it works) and just smoothly upgrade gradually to final 11.04 keeping it pretty much exactly how I want it?

Also with the software sources, I understand I need to disable the ones I manually added before updating from 10.10 then to re-enable them, but how do I re-enable them for Natty as they are currently for Maverick? Do I just change the word Maverick to Natty, or is it better to remove and re-add them for natty? And do the authentication keys need updating or are they ok? I don't really know a lot about the keys.

1 more thing (sorry) will an upgrade overwrite any settings I have e.g. etc/fstab, sudoers, things like that? I know when you upgrade it gives you an option for some things e.g. keep or replace, if I keep old settings from maverick does it matter? Or does 11.04 add new lines/things to these files if I choose replace?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm pretty new been using ubuntu as my only OS for couple months now and most of my time has been spent tweaking settings and I don't want to lose them, or do a clean install when 11.04 final is released as I won't ever be able to remember them all.

Ubuntu Security :: Make Live CD Of System

May 3, 2011

I got BT's repo's set and ready to install, tho I haven't installed them all just yet cause I not wanna crash the system, so I guess what I am asking has anyone sucecfully done this and what are the specific risks here. I have uploaded crunch and that works fine if I do it manually from the command line. the kernal seems to be update-able as well to BT's Kernal, I am not sure if I should do this or not in fear it might crash the Ubuntu system somehow. I guess what I might do next is install everything but the Kernal and install the executable links to the drop down menu by hand per the menu structure.

What I would ideally want is to have all the functionality of BT in Ubuntu which is pretty close to where I am at. Also, when I am done I want to make a live CD of this system so that I not have to do this ever again as it is very time consuming. What program would be used for that? Would any of my user data transfere? I don't want my user data to be transferred to the live CD just the raw system data etc. Anyone done this and would like to chat via skype? that would be best, but I'll take any help I can get at this point. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for all this.

OpenSUSE Install :: Mount A Live Compressed File System For Reading & Writing From A LiveCD/DVD Image?

Jul 9, 2011

On a Linux CD/DVD, there are compressed filesystem images for the live version for KDE or Gnome for example, but they have no extension, but they are clearly an image file ( compressed filesystem images for the live version before installation ) !!

I was wondering, How do I mount these compressed filesystem images, after I copy the ISO content of the CD/DVD on my system .... I want to edit some files or packages and make some changes, like if I want to customize a live version of gnome for example ! ... ( I know you might be tempted to tell me to use KIWI etc to customize etc ..... ) ... but I want to be able to mount the compressed file system image, then edit it for reading and writing while it is in a subdirectory on its own ... i want to open it ! ... is there a way to do this ??? ... these type of files have no extension ...

i can open this compressed filesystem image then to edit for read & write ... before I roll it back again ..... If and when I succeed .... what should I watch out for ? ... will the same compressed file image but slightly modified work again ?

PS. that same question could be kind of translated or be extended like : how do I use unionfs/squashfs programs on the command line to mount these image files with no extension for read & write mode ???

Ubuntu :: Make A Disk Image Of 9.10 System - Automatic Wrapper For Windows Drivers

Feb 12, 2010

1. Make a disk image of my 9.10 system (formatted ext3, btw) on my Syology CS407 NAS so I can do a bare metal restore. Why is this a couple of clicks on my Mac and Windows boxes, but so far not easy on Jaunty? Did I miss something?

2. Drivers. Why can't I just have an automatic wrapper for Windows drivers so I can use any printer or scanner, or a simple point and click driver install for native drivers? I have my ethernet connected Brother MFC-7820N, and the Samsung CLP-315 that runs off my CS407 installed and working on my Jaunty, but it was way more work than expected. What is the easy, automatic or point and click way to install drivers?

3. Graphics drivers. I have decent cards in my big boxes, Nvidia GTX 200 series. But when I get kernel updates, I have to uninstall and reinstall the graphics driver. Is there an easy way to keep this working?

4. Is there one flavor of linux distro that has a really consistent standard for user interface? I like to be able move things around, but do like my menus to be consistent (and do I ever hate the MS ribbon!). I've really only tried Ubuntu.

Linux installs have come a long, long way from the old days, and are such a point and click operation that I just wonder what I'm doing wrong. Someone is bound to have sorted these things.

Server :: Creating A "ghost" Of A Live Webserver?

I would like to run a copy of my live webserver in a Virtual PC on Windows so whenever I need to install new stuff on my webserver, I can "practice" first on the virtual copy.It doesn't need to be an exact copy: I'm not really interested in having a copy of all domains on the webserver.Is there a way to do that without having to take the webserver offline?

Ubuntu Installation :: Ghost-like System For Making Full Hard Drive Clones To A Network Location?

Aug 13, 2010

Whenever I'm dealing with large numbers of computers that need to have identical windows installations put on them, I love using Symantec/Norton Ghost to image the NTFS partition (just making the .gho file the size of the disk I've used, instead of the 160/320GB full volume size), and then uploading it automatically to a windows share.I'd love to be able replicate this exact process with Ubuntu. I have one computer that's ready to go, and a few dozen more that I'd like to quickly get that same image on.

I've heard that there's a command called dd that can make disk images, but I'd really like some sort of boot disk that can allow me to make an image, save it, then run the boot disk on another computer to allow me to reconnect to the server and dump that image on that computer. Ghost 4 Linux doesn't have a network/server component, I think.even if such solutions cost money, I'd love to know if they exist or not.

Ubuntu :: Image Distortion Using Live CD?

May 27, 2011

I can barely use the live session CD of Ubuntu 11.04 because,everything gets corrupted,i cant open new windows because it starts to get horrible, like if i had a graphics problem, managed somehow to open Mozilla and write this, but its impossible to do anything else that needs to open more windows layers...

I never had this problem with ubuntu before... my graphics are intel extreme graphics 2.i cant even use the terminal because it is in few words... invisible, unless I move it but then, disappears.I can work normally using windows. Also i have ubuntu karmic live cd and works perfectly.

Ubuntu :: Unionfs Image Layered Over Live USB Key

Oct 31, 2010

After installing Ubuntu to a flash drive, and customizing it heavily, I am running out of room (8 percent remaining on a 4GB flash drive). While I could go buy another flash drive, I already have plenty of storage between a 500GB external hard drive and a DLink NAS. What I would like to do is use unionfs to mount an image (around 6GB in size) over my 4GB flash drive. When it is mounted, all file changes should be synced to the unionfs image, thus "archiving" my flash drive. I have created the 6gb image, formatted it as Ext4 (same type as my flash drive), but when I mount it (using 'unionfs-fuse /media/SG_EHDD/devices/unionfs.dev -o cow /') any changes that I make are not made on the image. I think I am missing an option, namely the -o chroot=SOME_TEXT, but when I put -o chroot=/media/SG_EHDD/devices/, it says it cannot load /media/SG_EHDD/devices//media/SG_EHDD/devices/unionfs.dev. It also gives me the same errors when I cd to /media/SG_EHDD/devices and run unionfs-fuse with ./unionfs.dev for the path to the filesystem image.

Debian :: Creating Live .iso Image (without Remastersys)

Jul 12, 2011

i feel like this is a stupid question as i have seen many different ways to make a debian live cd, but the only way i understand is remastersys.i am trying to make a snapshot of my own debian unstable (sid) to be capable of re-distribution. remastersys will ONLY work on ubuntu, lenny, and squeeze.if anyone knows of any relatively simple tools i could use or could write an easy how too that would be very much appreciated. i am attempting to stray away from ubuntu and ubuntu based distros and use debian instead, although i cant find any distribution based on debian that i really like (maybe linux mint debian edition based on debian testing), but i really want the software right out of unstable (sid) and i would like to be able to make a distribute-able snapshot for myself and others that may be interested. (xfce + compiz + others, hopefully plymouth, out of the box). i have made some very good headway on this, but i dont know how to make a live cd out of an installed system without remastersys.
