  • A mechanism was added to check if i386 library (libc6-i386 or glibc.i686) exists on x86-64 system when running due to syslinux included in Clonezilla live is 32-bit.
  • Linux kernel i486 was replaced by i586 because now only i586 kernel exists on Debian Sid repository.
  • A better way to deal with --rsyncable option of gzip and pigz was implemented. (
  • Adding support for device name format like /dev/rd/c0d0 and /dev/ida/c0d0 RAID cards. (
  • Now Clonezilla could support PV on disk, not only on partition.
  • Fake RAID/firmware RAID is now supported if its device naming style is /dev/md.
  • The partition from an image could be now restored to different name device, e.g. sda1 could be restored to sdb5.


  • Temporarily disabled vmfs3 and vmfs5 support due to an issue ( Now dd is used for vmfs. Now waiting for the updating of vmfs-tools.
  • Options "-fsck-src-part" and ""-fsck-src-part-y" were duplicated in ocs-onthefly expert mode.
  • The input harddrive of ocs-install-grub might be more than one, therefore ocs-install-grub should take that into consideration.
  • Only device name /dev/mmcblk0p* worked. Those /dev/mmcblk[1-9]p* were not supported.
