Clonezilla Live

Posted 06-12-2009 at 03:29 PM by archtoad6

I lead the Samba & Network Administration SIG (Special Interest Group) at HAL-PC (www.hal-pc.org) here in Houston. For the last few sessions we have been in a "Disaster Recovery Arc" -- trying out various Free Software/Open Source bare metal back-up & restore software. Last Saturday, June 6, 2009, one of our members gave an excellent presentation on Clonezilla Live.

xorg 1.6.1 surprises

Posted 06-11-2009 at 07:05 PM by gabim

After upgrading to xorg 1.6.1, I noticed that my hungarian layout of keyboard switched off at the KDM login.
I checked the xorg.conf, but the
Code:
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "hu"
was still there.
I checked the /var/log/Xorg.0.log also and noticed some warnings and errors, mainly the "AllowEmptyInput" warning that it is enabled and will ignore my keyboard definition. Wow!...
