  • Pixz is used in ocs-onthefly local to remote cloning. An option to use xz as filter program was added, too.

  • To avoid a grub1 on ext4 issue, running the grub-install from the restored OS should be tried first. If fails, then using the grub1 on the running OS.
  • The description for the option "-r" of ocs-sr and ocs-onthefly was polished. Thanks to auroracore.
  • The -k option of ocs-iso and ocs-live-dev should be updated since now keyboard layout boot parameter from live-config is used.

  • The batch_mode on the server is nothing to do with that on the client in the program ocs-onthefly. Thanks to kevluck373 for reporting this issue (https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonezilla/forums/forum/663168/topic/6188724).
  • Keyboard layout prompt in "recovery-iso-zip" was fixed.
  • MBR partition table should not be larger than 2 TiB (2.2 TB). A checking mechanism was added in ocs-expand-mbr-pt to avoid going on.

New in version 2.0.1-5 (November 27th, 2012)

  • ENHANCEMENTS and CHANGES ***
  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2012/Nov/26).
  • Linux kernel was updated to 3.2.32-1.
  • Package drbl was updated to 2.1.34-drbl1, and clonezilla was updated to 3.1.22-drbl1. The new paths for the files in these two packages are in /usr/sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/share/drbl/sbin, and /usr/share/drbl/bin. No more under /opt/drbl/. Hence, the new pre-run and post-run paths are /usr/share/drbl/prerun/ocs/ and /usr/share/drbl/postrun/ocs/, respectively.
  • A KMS mode was added in the boot menu.
  • Partclone was updated to 0.2.56.
  • Packages tcplay and mpg123 were added.
  • Boot parameter "ocs_lang" is now replaced by "locales" from live-config.
  • Boot parameter "ocs_live_keymap" is now replaced by "keyboard-layouts" from live-config.
  • Boot parameters "echo_ocs_prerun" and "echo_ocs_postrun" were added. This can be used to disable echoing the ocs_prerun and ocs_postrun command.
  • An option to use "autohostname" to create the image name was added. Thanks to tererecool (David Bauer) for this idea.
  • The command to save an image will be saved in the image dir as file Info-saved-by-cmd.txt.
  • Another partition table file, e.g. sda-pt.parted.compact, will be saved in image dir when saving an image. It's easier for human to read.
  • //NOTE// From Clonezilla live 1.2.6-24, if you manage the boot parameters by yourself, you have to put the extra boot parameter "config" or "live-config" to make live-config to work.
  • //NOTE// From Clonezilla live 1.2.6-24, due to the change in Live-boot, the boot parameter to assign static IP address has been changed. The new format is: ip=**[DEVICE]:[CLIENT_IP]:[NETMASK]:[GATEWAY_IP]:[NAMESERVER] [,[DEVICE]:[CLIENT_IP]:[NETMASK]:[GATEWAY_IP]:[NAMESERVER]]***::
  • e.g. ip=eth0:192.168.100.1:255.255.255.0:192.168.100.254:8.8.8.8,eth1:192.168.101.1:255.255.255.0::
  • BUG FIXES:
  • A better mechanism was implemented to decide the restored OS is using grub 1 or 2. Thanks to Robert Weir for reporting this issue on Fedora 17 restoring.
  • The *.mod files for grub2 are not fixed in the path /boot/grub/. It could be in /boot/grub/i386-pc/. Function install_grub_hd failed in this case.
  • Program ocs-lvm2-stop did not work on Ubuntu Linux due to the udevd rules 85-lvm2.rules from Ubuntu.
  • The function install_grub_hd in ocs-live-dev should skip checking the boot loader on the USB flash drive, because it might be new, empty one.
  • To avoid the KMS and vmwgfx conflict issue (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=686939), some blacklist boot parameters were added.
  • The VOL_LIMIT for splitting image file could not larger than 20000000000000. Ref:
  • https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=671650&aid=3567350&group_id=115473
  • Saving mode should enable ncurse interface by default, too. Otherwise it's confusing.
  • Program run-parts is confusing, there now we use drbl-run-parts.

  • The interactive mode of ocs-onthefly will prompt the command and options so it's easier to be run in the command line prompt again.
  • Start sector in the meta data of NTFS partition will be changed by partclone.ntfsreloc after restoring. Thanks to Curtis Gedak for the info and the testing results from Ceasar Sun.
  • Submenu of syslinux/isolinux is used for memtest, freedos and network boot (in ocs-live-boot-menu).
  • File system ext4dev was listed in the support fs list in drbl-ocs.conf, and now partclone supports it.
  • The command to create Clonezilla live iso and zip was saved to the file Clonezilla-Live-Version.
  • Improvement: If edd_id failed, another method will be tried. If option "-e" is chosen, the CHS value from image file will be used with partclone.ntfsreloc if edd info is not available.
  • Clonezilla image dir (/home/partimag) will be created when booting (in S03prep-drbl-clonezilla) so it can be a mounting point to be used in ocs_prerun directly.
  • NTFS support is turned on for partclone. Option -q2 is the default option, and ntfsclone will be replaced by partclone if -q2 is selected.
  • Bug fixed: ocs-live-dev failed to use grub to create a bootable Clonezilla live device.

For the last 2 parameters, use "on" or "off", e.g. ocs_numlk=on to turn on numberlock when booting.
  • davfs2 were removed since it's not suitable for large file.

New in version 1.2.0-26 (September 27th, 2008)

  • 2 parameters (-a|--packages, -c|--categories) were added in create-debian-live and create-ubuntu-live.

  • Now we can assign the clonezilla live parameters (ocs_live_run, ocs_live_extra_param, ocs_live_keymap, ocs_live_batch and ocs_lang) in kernel parameters.

  • Syslinux 3.71 is used now. ///NOTE/// If you want to create a bootable USB flash drive for this version or later, remember to use the syslinux command from syslinux 3.71 or later. Otherwise the boot menu won't work.
  • The supported locales (en_US, zh_TW, ja_JP, fr_FR) will be kept in the created iso/zip, it's not necessary to be generated before running clonezilla live.
  • By default we use jfbterm instead of bterm for showing Chinese and Japanese fonts.
  • Bugs fixed:
  • create-ocs-tmp-img will put the converted image in /tmp so it won't fail in readonly filesystem (e.g. CD) or FAT-based filesystem (e.g. samba).
  • Suppress MD starting failure messages in DRBL/Clonezilla live. Thanks to Scott Ochiltree for this suggestion.
  • create-ocs-tmp-img will put the converted image in /tmp so it won't fail in readonly filesystem (e.g. CD) or FAT-based filesystem (e.g. samba).
