Can Clonezilla client(live version) be added?
« on: September 05, 2017, 06:53:48 AM »
It's a bare metal backup restore utility. It's basically a set of scripts that depends on a number of other packages, e.g. partclone, partimage etc.
gparted is already there, it'd be perfect with clonezilla added!

Thanks.

I want to get rid of my optical drive to simplify my pc config and boot a little faster. Plus lots of pcs and especially laptops don't come with one anymore.

Clonezilla's homepage says they support USB sticks.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

What I want is ONE usb stick for all utilities: Clonezilla + Gparted and more. Tiny Core already has most of what I need except Clonezilla. ;D

There's another way around. (Though you may not like the idea.)
Modify your boot loader to boot from a Clonezilla ISO file.
Or extract the contents in the ISO to your USB and boot from there.
I think Clonezilla is a OS itself rather than a program that can be compiled.
