...hosting at Live Recovery System


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've jut created a "LiveRecoverySystem" torrent (a 5.3.2 SRCD updated).
see my repo shared.

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
