Boot-Repair

Please consider to include Boot-Repair, a very powerful tool to repair boot issues with Linux/Windows.

The boot-repair CD seems to be a modified Lubuntu LiveCD. Of course we cannot include the whole LiveCD (it will be too big), but if it is possible to make it into a PMagic module, then it can be included in UBCD.

boot-repair source code:

Dependency that I've discovered so far:
Glade2script (https://launchpad.net/glade2script)

If I am going to build it, here is the (main) problem: Is there other dependency packages?

More dependencies here (the programs involved in boot-repair scripts, maybe incomplete):

Code: Select all

bash
coreutils (df, mkfifo, mkdir, cp, mv, dd, rm, tee, ls, cat, stat, tail, sleep,
dir, date, printf, echo, whoami, basename, dirname, pwd, expr, mktemp, chown, fold, wc)
util-linux (blkid, mount, fdisk, sfdisk, fsck, losetup)
grep
sed
os-prober
zenity
apt-get or yum or zypper or pacman
GNU parted
dmraid
kill, pkill
wget or curl
xz or lzma
gawk or 'busybox awk'
dmraid
hexdump
e2fsprogs (filefrag)
leafpad or xdg-open
ntfsfix
lsb_release
pastebinit
lvm2 (lvscan, lvchange, lvdisplay)
mdadm
gzip


As boot-repair don't have clear documentation on how to install from source, it will be difficult for me to port it to PMagic or other distros. So I give up.
