Re: UBCD V5.3.0 available for download

Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS Version: v5.22 2014Jun Changelog: 5.22: - Renamed to DOSDLG. - Removed missing test tracks check.

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

my guess is that you can edit the building scripts so to obtain it already when building the ISO images (as opposed to manual intervention after the fact). I am pretty sure you can't, unless someone shows me otherwise. :D The only way is to unpack, modify and repack. AFAIK, popular DebianLive-based...

Re: Question about UEFI

UBCD currently is not capable of booting in pure UEFI. In most UEFI systems, there is a so-called BIOS-compatibility mode (aka CSM). You could temporarily set CSM so to boot UBCD, but any OS already installed in UEFI mode (not in CSM) will eventually require for you to set UEFI mode back on; otherwi...

Re: Include zu betta

I might be missing something. The tool seems to be unsupported, discontinued, without documentation, with no license of any kind, and it is supposed to work only on (some?) old Hitachi/IBM drives in IDE-compatibility mode using specific commands according to each hardware combination. Am I understan...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

I have made some changes to boot in native resolution. Let see how this goes first. What if the user doesn't want the detected resolution? For instance, the screen allows for higher resolution but the user is visually-impaired so setting a lower resolution is a better match. For whichever reason, i...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

Some comments about UBCD Live 0.1.2a. _ Reduce the number of default workspaces to 2. _ There should be an icon at upper-left corner on the default desktop so to change the screen resolution (LXRandR). _ Open GParted, View, File system support. At least the packages for FAT12/16/32, NTFS, ext2/3/4, ...

Re: Issues booting to freshly made disc

It seems you have first extracted the original ISO image before burning "something" to the optical media. Have you tried burning the original UBCD ISO image? Have you tried using 4x burning speed? Other optical media brand? Any chance you could try booting UBCD with a USB flash drive instead? http:/...

Re: UBCD 5.2.9 Parted Magic Virus Scanner - Resolve ASAP Ple

The version of PartedMagic included in UBCD 5.2.9 is not the latest one available. Currently, PartedMagic is still GPL, but it is not free (it costs just a few dollars). If you want the latest version of PartedMagic, go to its web page. There are other methods to scan for malware offline. Several ve...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

I'll post about what's worth. To clarify, fdisk *is* still being used. Moreover, it is used by GParted/Clonezilla Live for "installing" themselves on USB drives. Fdisk is still included in GParted/Clonezilla Live. Fdiks is still used in the GParted forum. When a user receives a report from (G)parted...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

_ One or at most two Work-spaces by default, instead of 4. If taking out the whole feature would reduce dependencies (required resources, size, RAM, etc.) I would suggest taking out the Workspaces feature altogether (after all, this is a special-purpose snapshot Live system, not a full-feature OS)....

_ Is the "live/modules/" directory actually being used? Can it be used for customizations/updates? Yes it is. All txz files with this directory will be extracted to root. The script to do that is in "/etc/rc.local". That was how I migrated the PMUBCD modules with minimal changes. Any chance you cou...

Re: Having issues adding ISOs to UBCD 5

I don't know which version of UBCD you are using. I also don't know which version of Syslinux you are using. Whichever the versions, memdisk requires RAM for the ISO image. If the ISO image you are trying to load is "too big" for the RAM available, it might probably fail. Another detail might probab...

Re: Suggestions for replacement of Parted Magic

@ Victor , Debian is traditionally prepared to build new OS based on it, as much (or even more) as it is an OS by itself. It is also the biggest community distro. So it is no surprise that you find it easy to build on it. OTOH, most (not all) distros with specific focus on low resources (and/or low ...
