Reddit: How will clonezilla behave in case of dual boot setup?

Friday 23rd of December 2016 10:48:00 PM

Imagine I have just ubuntu installed on my computer and I make an image ubuntuImage01 of it as such using clonezilla.

Sometime in the future I dual boot with fedora.

Then later I accidentally delete all the files in the partition I had ubuntu installed. Such that I can't even get into tty.

I want ubuntu back therefore I use live usb to boot into clonezilla and have it restore ubuntuImage01 to the same partition where I had ubuntu once.

Since the imaged MBR only had one operating system but later it had two with fedora. Will that be overwritten by clonezilla and lose fedora?

What will happen?

TuxMachines: What makes Red Hat the king of Linux?

Friday 23rd of December 2016 10:16:46 PM

I call Red Hat the king of Linux for a reason. The second oldest Linux company just reported quarterly revenues of $615 million, an impressive growth of 18 percent over last year in the same period. If I round that up, it means Red Hat should be making somewhere around $2.4 billion in 2016. That’s a billion with a ‘b’ and that’s really incredible for a company that only offers pure open source solutions that anyone can copy and redistribute.

Reddit: CloudReady or Ubuntu

Friday 23rd of December 2016 09:13:31 PM

I tried Ubuntu a few years ago and found it rather complex. I currently use Chrome OS devices and really enjoy them. I tried CloudReady on an old desktop and the performance was subpar. Might Ubuntu perform better on it than CloudReady?

TuxMachines: Exim gives Linux admins a security fix for Christmas

Friday 23rd of December 2016 08:55:25 PM

Linux administrators will have to change their holiday plans, because Exim is still releasing a security update on Christmas Day, and not earlier as had been hoped.

An information leakage vulnerability was fixed last week in Exim, a widely used email agent for Unix and Linux systems, and major distributions are currently updating their packages to incorporate the fix. Exim maintainer Heiko Schlittermann originally announced on Dec. 18 that details of the vulnerability and the updated software will be available Dec. 25. There was a possibility the release date could be moved to Dec. 23 if the partner distributions could complete their preparations in a shorter timeframe, but that's no longer the case.

TuxMachines: Reiser4 Is Now Available For Linux 4.9, Mirror Code Almost Stable

Friday 23rd of December 2016 08:52:19 PM

For those that haven't yet switched to Btrfs, ZFS On Linux, or running EXT4/XFS but holding out hope for Reiser4, this out-of-tree file-system code has been updated for Linux 4.9.

Reiser4 was released for Linux 4.9.0 last weekend but then a revised patch series came out three days ago to fix some problems with this port to 4.9. With the new Reiser4 patches built against Linux 4.9.1, all should be well if you want to use this experimental file-system on the newest Linux kernel.

LXer: Etcher 1.0.0-beta.17 Walkthrough

Friday 23rd of December 2016 08:06:31 PM
Etcher is a cross-platform (Windows and Linux) tool that lets you write images to SD cards and USB drives. It enables users to experiment with 'live' Linux environments without writing to the computer's hard disk. I am hoping this tool will let me find the distro best suited for my needs, before 'commiting' one or more distros to my hard disk. Etcher is released under an open source license; the Apache License Version 2.0.
