Clonezilla

The Free and Open Source Software for Disk Imaging and Cloning

This release of Clonezilla live (20200703-focal) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.

ENHANCEMENTS and CHANGES from 20200428-focal

  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Ubuntu Focal (20.04) repository (as of 2020/07/03).
  • Linux kernel was updated to 5.4.0-39.43.
  • ocs-iso, ocs-live-dev: sync syslinux-related files when copying syslinux exec files.
  • When creating recovery iso/zip file, if it's in Clonezilla live environment, we have those syslinux files. Use that first so the version mismatch can be avoided. Ref: https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/support-requests/127/
  • Move grub-header.cfg from bootx64.efi to grub.cfg so that it's more flexible.
  • To avoid conflict with the patch of grub in CentOS/Fedora, for GRUB EFI NB MAC/IP config style, the netboot file is now like grub.cfg-drbl-00:50:56:01:01:01 and grub.cfg-drbl-192.168.177.2 not grub.cfg-01-* anymore.
  • Add xen-tools
  • Partclone was updated to 0.3.14. The codes about xfs was updated to be 4.20.0.
  • Package exfat-fuse was removed since the kernel has module for that.
  • A better mechanism to deal with linuxefi/initrdefi or linux/initrd in the grub config was added.

BUG FIXES

  • : The function is_block_device_with_fs of ocs-function should not treat "LVM2_member" as a file system. Thanks to Carlos Trentini for reporting this. Ref: https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/discussion/Clonezilla_live/thread/726d3dd6a8/
  • ocs-sr: ocs-chkimg should not overwrite /var/lib/clonezilla/ocs-vars. Hence backup it before running ocs-chkimg in the restoring mode. Thanks for Denis reporting this issue: Ref: https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/discussion/Clonezilla_live/thread/3f52bb4542
  • dcs did not switch some client's mode.
  • ocs-onthefly: bug fix for missing last-lba line. Previous solution neglecting the last-lba line in sfdisk dumped file should not be used in the case that option -k1 is used in ocs-onthefly. Thanks to Alex Hughes and JR Bregante for reporting this issue.

  • * The option -z5p was missing in the menu due to pxz was not replaced by pixz. Thanks to Darkyere for reporting this. Ref: https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/bugs/344/
