Good ol'rescue distros!
« le: 03 octobre 2013 à 23:38:32 »
Here is a pretty old list: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/system/recovery

The older ones in the list seems to be Bootkit-1.01 and CatRescue101E (1995)  :o

Some of those might not run on an i3, but might run
on a Pentium.    Need some new ones for sure.

Hello Patrick013,

I found that page thinking about tomsrbt when someone on IRC was talking about the smallest possible distro holding on a floppy, so seeing the dates I thought I would post here.

About rescue I would for the time being think more about Parted Magic, http://partedmagic.com which contains many useful tools, RIP Linux, (not rest in peace, but "recovery is possible" ;) ) http://www.tux.org/pub/people/kent-robotti/looplinux/rip

and This good Ultimate Boot CD. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com

What else can be useful? All other tools and links are welcome.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/g4l
Ghost for Linux-several types of backup methods, new kernels for
all hardware, hopefully.

http://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd/home/Home
Boot Repair Disk-restored my Grub2 several times on OS restores.


Anything else I might use I've found packages I can install on an external
HD.     Size isn't much of a factor as long as it's not super bloated.

Was able to do a frugal install of Parted Magic.   Noticed
you can make and add slackware modules (txz) to it in there.

Has G4L and a grub-doctor so.......pretty complete little
program.

Some people claim SuperGrubDisk and Grub4Dos can boot
anything by pointing at it if the MBR is bad.   Have to see that
someday.

Have a good one.

Patrick

Here's another one.

Rescatux ISO

Doesn't have any archivers I can find but does include SuperGrub2Disk
and boot-repair-disk on the same ISO.   What will they think of next ?
