Re: GParted 0.30 and ... SystemRescue project dying ???

@sdrubble yes, it is real quiet here. I try to help on topics i know about. Some questions are so special that they need costly testing to answer. Sysrcd is also a favor for me. Sometime i have to use old versions because actual versions don't work on legacy hardware or things are dropped. There are...

Re: Cannot find device with /sysrcd.dat. and/or srcd.bs backstore

You can check the devices using the minishell.
Minishell have many tools like mount, dmesg and vi to investigate what is going on.

Many strange boot problems are depending USB3 chipsets or devices.

Re: Default Boot Options & Host Restart option

One problem is that we have two different boot systems. syslinux for Bios and a basic grub for UEFI. Speak you about grub or syslinux. I write for syslinux: It is possible to set the option "boot from first hard disk" as default after a timeout. So a "operator" can boot the sysrc...

Re: autorun doesn't comply with python3

we should enable binary files in copyfilefct_basic. Bad coded/binary files are copied this way. def copyfilefct_basic(src, dest): if os.path.isfile(src): dstfile=open(dest, 'wb') dstfile.write(open(src,'rb').read()) dstfile.close() os.chmod(dest, 755) return 0 else: return -1 I dont know if it makes...

Re: autorun doesn't comply with python3

Yes i know about the space problem, but wanted to keep the script changes as small as possible.

A question to native python users:
Popen stores the output streams. Should we close p after reading stream and returncode?

Re: autorun doesn't comply with python3

This in not the only problem.
I tried something and found that also opening the pidfile as textfile "wt" help.

The main problem is that "commands" is removed in python3
I tried to substitute it with "subprocess" but i have problems with it.
