  • Language files de_DE, es_ES, ja_JP.UTF-8 and sk_SK was updated. Thanks to Michael Vinzenz, Alex Ibáñez López, Akira YOSHIYAMA, and Ondrej Dzivy Balucha.

    • Bug fixed: Do not use sort when searching partitions in /proc/partitions, since it will make the order to be like: "sda1 sda10 sda11 sda12 sda13 sda2 sda3 sda4 sda5 sda6 sda7 sda8 sda9" instead of in order. Ref: https://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=5478495. Thanks to Donut.

    • A new option "-z1p" was added so that we can use parallel gzip program (pigz) to compress the image for SMP machine (i.e. more than 2 CPUs shown in /proc/cpuinf).
    • Machine product name will be shown before restoring an image.
    • Bug fixed: ocs-expand-mbr-pt failed to process large disk, i.e. e.g. size=291563622 list in the *-sda.pt, where no space after "=".

    • 4 more boot parameters were added for Clonezilla live: ocs_daemonon ocs_daemonoff ocs_numlk ocs_capslk. Ex. for the first 2 parameters, ocs_daemonon="ssh", then ssh service will be turned on when booting. For the last 2 parameters, use "on" or "off", e.g. ocs_numlk=on to turn on numberlock when booting.
    • davfs2 were removed since it's not suitable for large file. In the next testing release, we managed to switch to base on Debian Lenny.

    • Append /opt/drbl/sbin and /opt/drbl/bin in system PATH.
    • Syslinux 3.71 is used in clonezilla-live-1.2.0-6.zip now. ///NOTE/// If you want to create a bootable USB flash drive for this version or later, remember to use the syslinux command from syslinux 3.71 or later. Otherwise the boot menu won't work.
  • 1.2.0-4
    • Bug fixed: fetch=tftp,http should be logged.
  • 1.2.0-3
    • For PXE booting, the patched live-initramfs supports fetch=tftp://$IP/filesystem.squashfs. For more info about PXE booting Clonezilla live, refer to http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livepxe.php since both GParted live and Clonezilla live are based on the same Debian live (live-helper & live initramfs).
  • 1.2.0-2
    • By default we use jfbterm instead of bterm for showing Asian fonts.
  • 1.2.0-1
    • All the Clonezilla-related files are in filesystem.squashfs now. Therefore it's easier to be used in PXE server.
    • The function to create a recovery iso/zip was added in the menu.

    • 4 params can be assigned as kernel params in Clonezilla live: (1) ocs_lang (for language, Ex: en, tw.UTF-8) & ocs_live_keymap (For keyboard, Ex: none) (2) ocs_sr_opt (to be run with ocs-sr) and ocs_onthefly_opt (to be run with ocs-onthefly) in clonezilla live. If one of them is assigned, clonezilla will run ocs-sr or ocs-onthefly according to the param. i.e. the normal interactive mode of clonezilla live won't be run. For example, you can put the following in the boot param: ocs_lang=en ocs_live_keymap=NONE ocs_sr_opt="-g auto -c restoredisk IMAGE1 hda", so when clonezilla live boot, it will use English environment, default (US) keyboard layout, and restore IMAGE1 into hda. Here the IMAGE1 should exist in the clonezilla live media.
  • 1.0.6-5
  • 1.0.6-3
    • Updated with clonezilla 2.2.1-14. It will skip mounting ntfs partition when "-g auto" is used. Since grub files won't be in ntfs parttiion. This will avoid some problem sometimes.
