General :: Is There 'restore Point' (Debian / Ubuntu) Like Windows?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm working directly in an Ubuntu Virtual Machine (VM). Some updates (like kernel) were available at the update manager.If I weren't using a VM, I wouldn't update it since it's a risk to break something. Since it's a VM, you can create a Snapshot or export an appliance and restore if something goes wrong.Suppose I'm not using a VM with a Debian/Ubuntu installation. Is there a install-restore approach that doesn't depend in a VM configuration to restore your system exactly before an upgrade (Like a "Restore Point" in Windows), being easy to restore like a VM appliance?

General :: Ubuntu - Save A "restore Point"?

Sep 20, 2010

I have some program that I want to run but I am not sure if it is going to do anything malicious. I have an old ubuntu pc which I am using to run it.

I know in Windows you have save a restore point where the registry and some other stuff (it's all mysterious to me) gets backed up and can be restored to later. Is there a similar concept in Linux? Can I bring my filesystem to where it was before I ran this program?

CentOS 5 :: Procedure To Restore Initial Installed Configuration?

Jun 18, 2009

I am looking for a procedure to recover the initial installed state of my system with out over writing user data areas. The install procedure has the phrase "will remove all linux partitions" which interpret to mean data partitions, not just /bin and /. Additional background - Was attempting to build a 32 bit cross compile of Mozilla/Firefox on a x86_64 configuration and had a conflict with libgl. Online advice was to remove duplicate libgls from the system (that was bad advice). This led to running yum update.

When I restarted the system I know longer had wireless networking, ntfs mounts and possibly other features I had installed. Further, attempts to update, re-install, erase and reinstall have had no effect on the situation. My assumption is that I need to start with a clean install - which will be about 10-20 hours to reset all the additions I made. But I don't see another solution.

Ubuntu :: How To Create 10.4 System Restore

Aug 11, 2010

First off, Ubuntu 10.4 is working great on my new laptop and I really enjoy it. And it is super fast. My question is now that I have everything all set up, all my packages, my windows settings, and my ATI driver, my updates, etc., I want to be able to keep it all. Maybe somebody could point me in the right direction or give me some better terminology. Would love to learn more about distros in the future. For now I just don't want to have to do all this updating again. There are a few things I have found like Clonezilla and others, but they seem to be a bit advanced and more for servers.

Ubuntu :: System Restore Problem

Sep 8, 2010

A friend has a netbook running a dual boot setup with Ubuntu (9.10, I think) and Windows XP. She recently decided to run system restore on the Windows partition and can't boot into Windows anymore. I told her I would help her fix it tonight, but before she gets here I figured it would probably be helpful to ask if this is a well known issue and if anyone has any suggestions on the best method of fixing it.

I planned on first making sure the grub is targeting the Windows partition correctly, but I suspect the problem could be that the system restore point she used was one from before she had a linux partition. If that is the case does anyone know if this could potentially destroy the windows installation?

Ubuntu :: Equivalent To System Restore Like Windows ?

Mar 14, 2010

Does Ubuntu have an equivalent to system restore like windows?

I just want to know what the best way is to save everything , as in settings and programs etc. , just in case there's some sort of major failure.

Any ghosting programs that will allow me to save the last known good configuration? or clone the entire drive?

Since I've been using Ubuntu I haven't run into any major screwups like with windows , but there are some times I've installed it and it took a while to get different things working. I don't want to have to go through the whole process again if there's ever a major malfunction.

Just installed Linux (Ubuntu 10.10-net book-i386) on an acer 5310 laptop, everything is working great except for the internet. Google home page takes over a minute to load on Firefox, the actual search results takes only a second but then it takes 2 or 3 minutes to load any site i click on. I have broadband, only 1mb, but it worked perfect on the previous OS, also using Firefox.

Ubuntu :: Backup System A, To Restore System B?

Jan 25, 2011

Recently I've backupped my entire /home folder on my laptop with grsynch trough ssh.Since I already had a simply text file containing all installed programs, I figured 'then, when i go from the backup trough my desktop, all my program settings will be restored if i run the txt file to install all those programs first.So i installed al programs, then i went from backup to /home on desktop, logged out and back in. Started up a random program (tried thunderbird and filezilla) and no settings were to be found.In retrospect, docky did start, but didnt have all the launchers i had on my laptop. so that could have been a clue.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Restore System

Apr 4, 2011

I am new to openSUSE (and to Linux). I have try Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and ended with openSUSE that seems to be the one I like. But I have some problem now. The system seems to hang on boot and after searching the Internet I found thread about ATI display driver (and I have ATI) so I installed ATI drivers. The system got worse and playing videos start to be not as it should be (and often freezing). I decided to uninstall these drivers to get my system back as it was but ended with more problem. Now my system don't start. I can boot in some kind of command prompt but nothing else.

Can I do something to restore the system or will I have to reinstall the system? I don't know if I want to reinstall it. I am using a very slow Internet-connection (air-card) and I have had so much headache on the other Linux (before I did end on openSuSE). I like openSuSE (even there is some minor things, like I cannot change my default browser to Opera, a Browser I have been using for almost 10 years but I still can use the Opera so it is a minor thing).

Ubuntu Security :: System Restore Available Out There In Which Is Equivalent Of RollbackRX?

May 15, 2010

I am new in Ubuntu. I wanted to know if there is a System Restore available out there in which is equivalent of RollbackRX [URL].. freeware or shareware.

RollbackRX used to backup/restore OS system changes.
It is able to backup/restore system in less than 1 minute.
It is able to backup with a little amount of disk size.
Feature Needed:
Pre-Boot Snapshot Backup


I currently used this application in my Windows XP system. And I am happy having it. I used to modify my XP a lot and sometimes forcing myself to restore my system (using rollbackrx) because It is unbootable/freezing/sudden restart. It does save me a lot of time, especially those critical moments. I am hopeful that there is available variant of this one for Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Backup And Restore A Triple-boot System?

Jun 14, 2010

best/simplest way to back up my triple-boot machine, which has Karmic 32-bit, Karmic 64-bit and Windows 7 (64-bit) installed on 3 equal slices of the internal 1TB disk. There are a total of 6 partitions (1 primary+1 logical partition each for the two Karmic, and 2 primary partitions for Win7), and I would like to back it up on an external disk such that the whole system can be restored as-is by writing over the disk. I guess this means correctly backing up data+partition table+MBR, and I would also prefer backing up only the used portion of the disk (rather than creating a 1TB mostly empty image file).

To my knowledge the only way to reliably do this is with "dd" command, but I have never used it ("fsarchiver" seems to be the next best option, but it cannot back up MBR yet; and "partimage" does not have ext4 support). As described here and here, I should run the following commands from a live boot:

1) To back up entire data in compressed format (using 1MB read block to speed up the process):

dd if=/dev/sda bs=1MB | gzip > /backup/image.gz

2) To back up MBR+partition table (stored within the first 512 bytes of the disk):
dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 of=/backup/image.mbr

3) To restore data:

gzip -dc /backup/image.gz | dd of=/dev/sda

4) To restore MBR+partition table:

dd if=/backup/image.mbr of=/dev/sda
