[News] Making One's Own Customised GNU/Linux Distribution, Clonezilla Praised

Hash: SHA1

How to build your own Linux distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Since Manchester University's Owen Le Blanc released MCC Interim Linux 
| (generally agreed to have been the first Linux distribution), way back in 
| 1992, there have been hundreds of ways to get the world's favourite free 
| software operating system on to a computer. The diversity of alternatives 
| reflects the diversity in the development community, with distros split along 
| technical, functional, linguistic and even ideological lines.     



Clonezilla: Sheer awesomeness

,----[ Quote ]
| I was going to start by saying that building a Crux system is a long and 
| tedious process. But really, no matter what software you’re using, building a 
| system to your liking takes time and effort.  
| But for someone like me, who swaps out systems sometimes once or twice in the 
| course of a few days, building and rebuilding, installing and reinstalling … 
| it can be very time consuming.  
| So I took some advice and looked into Clonezilla, and I really like what I 
| found. Now I have a way of flashing an entire system — an entire hard drive, 
| really — to a file or a folder, and switching between systems in a matter of 
| minutes.   



Review: CloneZilla 1.2

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm really impressed with CloneZilla. While it's not
| graphically driven like Parted Magic is, it's still very
| easy and intuitive to use and one I would recommend for
| newer users (but not complete newbies) to use when copying
| or cloning their hard drives.


Torvalds rejects one-size-fits-all Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Linus Torvalds has rejected the argument that Linux developers should pool
| their resources behind a single distribution.



Manage partitions and disks with GParted-Clonezilla live CD

,----[ Quote ]
| For a home user or an
| administrator with just a few systems, the
| GParted-Clonezilla live CD
| is an excellent tool for managing disks. It can
| save you several hours when
| preparing new disks or migrating partitions from
| one disk to another. It's also
| a fantastic way to move a partition that's not
| around free space into a bigger
| partition without much fuss.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
