The Free and Open Source Software for Disk Imaging and Cloning

This release of Clonezilla live (3.0.1-8) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.

ENHANCEMENTS and CHANGES from 3.0.0-26

  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2022/Jun/12).
  • Linux kernel was updated to 5.18.5-1.
  • Add packages ngrep, duf, duff and dfc in the live system.
  • Add more options in boot parameters to be parsed, including: extra_pbzip2_opt, extra_lbzip2_opt, extra_plzip_opt, extra_lz4mt_opt, and extra_xz_opt. Thanks to ottokang for this request.
  • Update live-boot as 1:20220505.drbl1, and jfbterm 0.4.7-49.drbl2 (sync the version number with that of Fedora).
  • The option --rsyncable of zstd causes bad performance. It can be 5 times slower for v1.4.x, and worse for v1.5.2. Hence by default we do not use it, and use zstd 1.5.2 again in this release. Ref:
  • Support more wired NIC device types of name in ocs-live-netcfg. Ref:


  • Do not let sudo to spawn pseudo-terminal when running a job. Otherwise ocs-live-run-menu will be run twice, and it will make the console weird. Thanks to ottokang for reporting this issue. Ref:
  • Replace buggy /usr/share/terminfo/j/jfbterm from ncurses-term. Thanks to ottokang for reporting this issue.
