Ghost For Linux


Mates,

wondering if there is a software equivalent to Norton Ghost. I've tried g4l but it can't burned the harddisk image directly to DVD or CD. the g4l requires additional hard disk or extra space on the network to copy the hard disk image. I'am looking something similar to Northon ghost that capable to create, compress & burn the harddisk image online....

konsolebox,
You may be confusing Norton Anti Virus with Norton Ghost ( imaging ).

You can sue dd for disk imaging. Problem is, is that if you're doing it over a Samba share, you have a 2GB limit. You can split images, though. I'm not sure what the command is, though. I just made a thread about the splitting, so maybe check that out if you're doing it over a Samba share. Because I doubt that yours will be under 2GB.

EDIT: NOTE TO SELF, READ ORIGINAL POST.

I used to use dd command to clone harddisk, e.g dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb. But this method need additional hard disk to be installed in PC. Is it possible to use dd to burn directly to DVD?

I just about reported the post again instead of quoting it...

Anyway, I know you can copy an image to CD/DVD with dd, whether or not it needs extra HD space, I'm not sure.
