Thanks for this -- I might use it for a Gentoo Studio install.

sitquietly,

You would be better off getting the latest version from the repository of the Live Recovery System developer (sabayonino) -- see the link in his signature in his latest post post just before yours: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-8347228.html#8347228

Thanks @Sabayonino for forking it off and giving us the LRS. I'll grab the torrent and try to seed it for as long as I can.

Also, thank you @NeddySeagoon for hosting it !

edit1: I think we also should have a wiki entry or some other way to inform others of the LRS. New users may not be aware of this thread.

As project LRS seems backuped by many (also admin and mod) and we all miss Gentoo driven systemrescuecd.
Do you think that it would be possible to host it officially in the download section of the Gentoo website ?

That would be great and easier !

Would also help people googling for it ;-)

Best,

Second that motion. If cost is involved would be willing to contribute via GoFundMe.

Tony0945,

It won't happen because hosting LRS inside Gentoo namespace implies Gentoo endorsement and possibly Gentoo security updates.
Neither of those will happen.

What gentoo developers do on their own servers is up to them.

Perhaps Sabayonino can post it on github or Sourceforge.net?

EDIT:
I did download some note pages from system-rescue-cd.org but haven't done anything with them yet.
it seems a daunting task. Ultimately an ebuild would be good. In an overlay of course.

I removed most of the SystemRescueCD links/references where no longer needed.

Looking forward to the future official developments, I will release updated ISOs in the toolchain and applications.


NIce one for doing this.

Is there any chance of zfs support in the future?


++

zfsonlinux really needed

either master (I'm running master so biased in that direction :wink: ) or latest stable build

thanks to sabayonino for being a huge help

Thank you for making this possible, Sabayonino :D

I am trying to make this iso directly bootable from grub2, but I need some help. Maybe someone of you sees my error(s).

I downloaded the iso file and placed it on a partition created as /dev/sda4 (formated with ext4) which is mounted at /lrs.

I then modified /etc/grub.d/40_conf to the following:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.
menuentry "Linux Recovery System" {
set isofile="/lrs/LiveRecoverySystem-201908-13.iso"
loopback loop (hd0,msdos4)$isofile
linux (loop)/isolinux/rescue64 setkmap=de isoloop=/lrs/LiveRecoverySystem-201908-13.iso
initrd (loop)/isolinux/initram.igz
}


But when I issue grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg it does not create a menuentry, so I suspect something wrong with my 40_custom file.

I edit my /boot/grub/grub.cfg by hand.
If it is of any help, here is my grub.cfg entry for LiveRecoverySystem CD.
Code:

menuentry "SystemRescueCD " {                                                     
    insmod part_msdos                                                                               
    insmod ext2                                                                                     
    set root='hd0,msdos1'                                                                           
    set isofile=/usr/local/share/systemrescuecd/LiveRecoverySystem-201907-19.iso                     
    loopback loop ${isofile}                                                                         
    linux (loop)/isolinux/rescue64  isoloop=${isofile}                                               
    initrd (loop)/isolinux/initram.igz                                                               
  }   

I have just put LiveRecoverySystem.iso where systemrescuecd used to live.

It works now, after I had to do little additions/corrections like adding the two insmode lines and set root=
I also removed /lrs in set isofile. Thanks proteusx

Hey, thanks for keeping Gentoo SystemRescueCD going as LiveRecoverySystem! It's great for partitioning and formatting disks (unless you're creating encrypted disks and need rngd, for that I use a Kubuntu install disc) and putting smiles on the faces of Mom's friends who thought for sure they lost pictures of their grandkids forever :D

Not happy that it still has to be larger than a CD-ROM, but no big deal, times have changed.

I have the torrent for LRS-201908-13, along with the Linuxtracker.org torrent of SRCD v5.3.2, running on a VPS.
Announce new versions of LRS on this thread and I'll join in with the new torrent.

Thank you!

EDIT: Just a suggestion, one of the important packages that SystemRescueCD always lacked was rng-tools. If you want to create encrypted partitions, you need entropy provided via rngd, and for that reason I often used the Kubuntu install CD in addition to, or instead of, SRCD when initially setting up a disk for Linux. Now that we have LRS and it's no longer capped at 700 MB, you might want to add sys-apps/rng-tools, with rngd disabled at boot, so that people can create encrypted partitions using LRS.

Hey, why were the ISOs and torrents all deleted from Dropbox? Is there a new place the project is being hosted?

Can you install VDI on a jump drive or do you need VirtualBox for that?

redblade7,

You can convert all the virtual drive formats among themselves.
The physical media does not matter.

Hi guys !

As testing RAW image available on my dropbox (Shared link) . It works on my PC and others that I've tested. (mostly Intel Chipsets and some AMD Ryzen , thanks Xdarma for testing :roll: )

*.img is a raw image you can put on USB/SDD/SATA harddrive using :
Rosa image builder
app-cdr/isoimagewriter
Or BalenaEtcher
Or simply decompress .zst file to device target (see LRS.info)

FSA (fsarchiver) and VDI (VirtualBox drive) files are also available , please configure the 3 partitions before using Fsarchiver as explained on LRS.info file.

It can boot from grub2 on hybrid BIOS+UEFI boot. (only UEFI if restored by FSA file archive)

Image can be updated and you'll have a pure Gentoo system on your USBstick/Hdd

Please keep in mind that performances can be different from USB chipsets and controller. But should be works fine with low I/O .

Memo for Nvidia+Intel Video cards : If the system won't boot try to disable ACPI and choose VESA video driver.

Root has a XFS filesystem 'cause it can grow the filesystem on a running and mounted partition. RAW image has 7.7Gb data size (~4.4 GB files size). It can be put on >=8GB drive and it can use all the free space .

Just for fun ! :P

Happy new 2020 !


USB Performance
PS : I've tested *.img file on different USB devices.

Lexar Media, Inc. JumpDrive Tough S75 3.0 128GB : Works but very low performance on write
Lexar Media, Inc. JumpDrive Tough ?? Model 3.0 32GB : Works fine with few write operations . High I/O go to freeze :lol:
Kingston Technology DataTraveler 100 G3/G4/SE9 G2 : Freeze at boot :evil:
SanDisk Corp. Ultra ??? 2.0 : works but very slow
SanDisk SD8SNAT1 (SSD 256GB) via USB adapter : Works fine.
SanDisk SD8SNAT1 (SSD 256GB on SATA controller) : Works fine

Other USB 2.0 devices : Works with very slow performances
Other USB 3.0 devices : Some USB works with low I/O , others are very slow with partial freeze.

PPS : No more free space on my dropbox to keep old ISOs .. I'm looking for other free cloud/share solutions , I'm trying to boot LRS on ISO9960 running Isolinux and keep all the tools that i've installed (DVD will be needed).

I can try to share latest torrents as soon as possible if you need the ISO

As I wrote , I'll try to build an updated DVD-ISO

I have two questions, while updating I got ccache error indicating portage could not create temporary file. Is this a known issue? Then I have no sound, with hd-audio. I thought I should report, as its a quite common device. For now, I have removed ccache from features to do an initial world update, and I'll look into the sound issue once system is up to date. A general question as I don't quite understand usermanagement on these livesystems; where can I configure a login with restricted user with mandatory password for login? I am asking, as an usb stick can be forgot or lost. And the normal setup seems to be that there is an autologin, with an account without password, where I can change to root by just typing su and hitting enter without password. How can this be changed towards a behaviour of a normal setup? I tried to passwd from within root, but that does not seem to persist. I also tried to create a user, but that doesn't seem usefull when a reboot & a startx followed by su gets me admin rights. On the other side, when I install something, or change some settings, those seem to persist, so it is aparently not a read only system. I would be grateful if someone could enlighten me. Thanks a lot for your great work. :)

you can find your answers here.

CCACHE :

/var/ccache directory must be exists ! (I'll remove this directory and its contents to save image size but I kept to build LRS system in my chroot environment )
Code:
# mkdir -p /var/ccache && chown portage:portage -R /var/ccache


AUDIO : All audio supprt should be disable to kernel config and no "alsa" or "pulseaudio" flag is/are enable to make.conf.

For LRS purposes no audio (or printer and others) support is enabled

There isn't any repository (like GIT,CVS ...) .
No code to share.

SImply I play in chroot environment on a loop device of a RAW image and I build the system just like gentoo chroot installation.

See LRS.info file

=======================================================

=== INTRO ===

This is my own project to replace SystemRescucecd ISO image. Just for fun.
Anyone can do this.

LRS raw image is bootable on BIOS/UEFI systems running Grub2
It is based on Gentoo AMD64 no-multilib. It was build from stage3

LRS raw image can be install on any USB/HDD device

USB/HDD Min size : >=8 GB (8GB should be tiny , depends on USB chipset)
After install LRS on device , you can update and manage the OS just like a real installation.

Raw ZSTD compressed image to USB/HDD device (replace /dev/sd<?>: according your preferences)

#1
zstd -d -c -v LRS.img.zst -o /dev/sd<?>


#2
zstd -d -v -c LRS.img.zst | dd of=/dev/sd<?> bs=4M conv=sync,noerror


#3 Uncompress zstd running using mutiple CPU thread (-T# )
zstd -d -v -k -T4 LRS.img.zst

You'll have a raw image LRS.img
You can "burn" LRS.img running your favourite tools like DD/DCFLDD , Rosa image writer , Balena Etcher etc..


#4
cat LRS.img > /dev/sd<?>

=== Manage the raw file ===

You can mount LRS raw image and update the image :
Example /dev/loop0 is considered and you may have different:

# losetup --find --show LRS.img
/dev/loop0

# partprobe /dev/loop0

# fdsik -l /dev/loop0

Disk /dev/loop0: 7,5 GiB, 8074035200 bytes, 15769600 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt
Disk identifier: 700981BF-1069-491E-B47C-B3CA35C35A5C

Device Start End Sectors Size Type
/dev/loop0p1 2048 4095 2048 1M BIOS boot
/dev/loop0p2 4096 208895 204800 100M EFI System
/dev/loop0p3 208896 15769566 15560671 7,4G Linux filesystem
Mount the /dev/loop0p3 (the root filesystem) /dev (and /dev/shm) /proc /sys filesystem according on https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Chroot
chroot in /dev/loop0p3.
Do anything.
Exit and umount all filesystems

# truncate -s 15G MyImage.img

Partitioning your image (GPT , BIOS/UEFI boot)

# sgdisk --clear \
--new 1::+1M --typecode=1:ef02 --change-name=1:'BIOS boot partition' \
--new 2::+100M --typecode=2:ef00 --change-name=2:'EFI System' \
--new 3::-0 --typecode=3:8300 --change-name=3:'LRS filesystem' \
MyImage.img

Keep in mind : You must install and configure your favourite bootloader just like GRUB2


Have a fun !

I'm just trying to update the last Gentoo based Sysrescuecd per the instructions on the CD. Besides the copy not working (error messages), I found that only the 32 bit apps were copied. Am I correct that sysrescuecd boots either a 32 bit or 64 bit kernel, but even if booting a 64-bit kernel, all the applications are 32-bit?

Trying to feel my way through the process.

I found it neccesary to turn off pam (as I have on all of my machines). Why would a rescue CD have multiple seats?
