Short Update Regarding Xanara Rescue CD

Feb

Casper gives me a lot of troubles. He removes ALL user settings that I’ve made in the home directory of the Live CD user. The Live-Linux’s pre-compiled kernel also brings me some problems with the modules. Recorrect it? SORRY! I prefer to start it all over again from SCRATCH.

Current progress? Erm.. I can say that Xanara Rescue CD (just for the OS part) is currently at 30% to 35% of overall progress. For now, I am upgrading the OLD packages and modules that were installed on the base operating system that is use as the base and it require me to download 165 files! Hahaha…

Xanara Rescue CD – Alpha 1.0

Feb

Xanara Rescue CD – Alpha 1.0 has released.

Xanara is a Recovery Live CD based on Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS. It is a live Linux distribution that aims specifically at recovery and repair operations on Windows machines but is equally usable for Linux recovery issues after a crash. It provides an easy way to carry out administration tasks on the computer such as creating and editing the partitions of the hard disk. It contains a lot of system utilities. By just booting the CDROM, the users can straight away perform the recovery process without any installations. The kernel supports most of the important file systems even the latest and rarely used like Reiser4, JFS and ext4.

Xanara can perform normal rescue operations like other rescue Linux distributions but it is equipped with 3 brand new applications which are Backup on LAN, Real Server Backup and MySQL Backup.

Alpha 1.0 version still containĀ  a lot of bugs and the 3 brand new rescue applications are not yet installed.
