Clonezilla Live, a Linux distribution based on DRBL, Partclone, and udpcast that allows users to do bare metal backup and recovery, is now at version 2.2.3-31 and is ready for testing.
The Clonezilla team has just a released a new development build for this Linux distribution and this time they did a little bit more than just a simple Debian synchronization.
“The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Aug/12),” reads the official announcement.
According to the changelog, the Linux kernel is now at version 3.14.15-2. This is odd and we were expecting to see a bump to version 3.15 or even 3.16. This is an operating system that really needs the bleeding edge when it comes to kernel.
Also, the drbl package has been updated to version 2.9.12-drbl1 and the fstransform and rfkill packages have been added.
Clonezilla Live is a Linux distribution that does only one thing: bare metal backup and recovery. It's very similar to other, older pieces of cloning software, such as True Image or Norton Ghost.
Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
