I need to install and run Clonezilla on Ubuntu. I don't need the server side of it. Can you please provide step-by-step instructions on how to do it? To be clear, I want to boot to Ubuntu first and then run Clonezilla (server not needed) and I don't want to create a multi-boot setup with Ubuntu and Clonezilla Live, either.
I found this old web page which didn't work with the newest version of Clonezilla: (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1216081)
You can follow the doc about how to configure a Clonezilla SE (DRBL), and only finish the "drblsrv -i" part, i.e.
You can ignore the 3rd step, i.e. the "drblpush -i" part (
Hi Steven, thanks for the reply; however, the discussions in those pages are very extensive. Can you say if by following the commands mentioned in the second post, a reliable Clonezilla installation will be created? By that, I mean all the required files get copied, the added path is complete, etc.
I tested that by installing Ubuntu Desktop 13.10 on a USB memory using Pen Drive Linux's Universal USB Installer 126.96.36.199. I also set the Persistent file size to say 1024 MB. I used Clonezilla Live alternative ISO 20140114.
I only wish there was an installation binary of Clonezilla available, as well.
Here you are:
1. gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-key D7E8DF3A
2. gpg -a --export D7E8DF3A | apt-key add -
3. Add the following line in your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://drbl.sourceforge.net/drbl-core drbl stable
4. apt-get update
5. apt-get install drbl
6. drblsrv -i
Following the interactive mode, just press "Enter" to accept all the default selections.
Once it's done, you have all the Clonezilla required packages on your system.
Let me know if you encounter any problem.
That is great, Steven! However, I got stuck at some of the steps. So, I added a few more, if that is OK with you. Here is the whole thing:
Hi again, When I run:
root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# mount --bind /dev/sda1 /home/partimag
I get this error:
mount: mount point /home/partimag does not exist
How I can fix this? Thanks!
"mount: mount point /home/partimag does not exist" -> It means you do not have the dir /home/partimag. Therefore just run the following command as root:
mkdir -p /home/partimag
Very good, thanks. It works now. Somehow I was under impression that that folder will be created by the installation process.
If you run "drblpush -i", yes, it will.
However, since you just only finished "drblsrv -i", which basically install and prepare all the required packages only.
I see! Thanks.
