Requires ntfs-3g advanced release version >= 2012.1.15AR to change UUID. The ntfs-3g stable version 2012.1.15 does not yet support changing NTFS UUID.
adythe problem is properly requires exact versions forms of ntfs-3g and particular avoid particular versions as well.
Now, let's ask ourselves; can I guarantee that every and all cases are correctly supported by Porteus? Of course I can't. Sure, but I won't be testing each and every one of them.
If we are based off gparted live we don't have todo the testing of those features. The developers of gparted have done the testing. Using parted magic again the testing was done by parted magic developers. Porteus is not offering the quality controls.
Now there are other options other than gparted live. http://www.sysresccd.org/
does not have direct support of gparted developers but the people maintaining this are doing it for system repair so again they are doing the testing. Lot of ways sysresccd is worst to customise than gparted live.
If I were to find that there is some situation that the GParted application that is already included in Porteus doesn't currently handle, I would report such problem and I would try the very latest updated official release of GParted Live.
ady what is the worst outcome of a partition tool of not being able to correctly handle a partition. Data loss. There is really no secound chance really. If you think running Porteus Gparted having it do the wrong thing that you will be able to put in Gparted live and fix it you are fooling self.
testdisk is in fact default included in gparted live http://geexhq.com/recover-partition-table/
. ady I asked before for a list of tools wished for. There is every chance all the wished for ones exist as built in parts into a existing recovery disc maintained by people who will be testing the features for us.
ady if you want to go portus you better be willing to give the time to make sure its tested and works correctly. If not do what I am doing look at the discs that other parties maintain for recovery work.
Other parties maintain is a short list. systemrescuecd and gparted live that is it. Parted magic was the third.
ady the problem here none of the third party pretested are anything like parted magic for that module support. This is the reality. If you want Portus like modules and something tested for recovery work you have to port Portus module system to either debian or gentoo or start a specal distrobution based off Portus and collect the skilled people to test it.
ady you are not answering what I need to hear to back Portus. Quality control is the biggest thing I care about. Gparted is the most tricky part to be right. Gparted is also the most harmful part if its not operating correctly.
ady your constant answer is I could just download and burn Gparted live. I could say that about Portus. UBCD is a recovery and repair disk. Any live cd merged into UBCD has to be quality controlled for recovery and repair.
UBCD would be better off with no Linux Live cd option and making end users add their own than using a distrobution like Portus that is not quality controlled for recovery and repair.
ady the most import rule about recovery and repair don't use suspect tools that can make issues worse.
ady you are just not understanding the problem. A person attempting to go puppy or tinycore or any of those others would have the same response from me. They are not quality controlled for the job.
ady we will be better to work with like gparted live or systemrescuecd and attempt to get them to add extra features.
ady my focus in Gparted is the damage it can in fact inflict. I have not chosen disc that cannot have other tools added.
Basically ady pull your head out sand. Saying untested will be fine is simply not acceptable.
I have been looking at the portus scripts and I am fairly sure I will be able to make them work on debian. I am willing to test if I can make portus module support work with a debian live. I am not a gentoo expert so I cannot see if portus script can be made work with systemrescuecd. Yes the portus support is more a free time interest level so it might take me a month or two.
ady I am listerning to what you want. But you have to get what I class as most critical. Gparted must work correctly if it included on the UBCD. If Gparted does not work correctly we will be risking other peoples data.
ady basically you are being way too lax on quality control.
