Yard is a suite of Perl scripts for creating rescue disks (also called bootdisks) for Linux.
Yard is a suite of Perl scripts for creating rescue disks (also called bootdisks) for Linux. A rescue disk is a self-contained Linux kernel and filesystem on a floppy diskette, usually used when you can't (or don't want to) boot off your hard disk.

A rescue disk usually contains utilities for diagnosing and manipulating hard disks and filesystems.

Main features:

  • Builds rescue disk from a list of file specifications.
  • File specs allow absolute and relative filenames, symbolic links, file replacements and full shell-style globbing.
  • Automatically determines necessary libraries and loaders.
  • Allows stripping of binaries and libraries during copying.
  • Automatically regenerates ld.so.cache
  • Checks for broken symlinks
  • Checks /etc/{fstab,inittab,termcap} for common errors and inconsistencies.
  • Checks user directories and files mentioned in /etc/passwd
  • Checks command files (eg, rc.local and .login) for missing binaries and command interpreters.
  • Provides information on library usage.
  • Checks NSS and PAM configuration.
  • Automatically performs filesystem compression and copying.
  • Can be used with or without LILO.
  • Can make single or double disk rescue sets.
  • Extensive checking of user choices and execution errors.
