Cannot find 'fsarchiver' Ext4 utility in SRCD documentation

Post by EdenMar » 26 Feb 2010, 23:15

Probably the world's most obvious question, but:

I am looking at the screenshots, and have read the (English) documentation, even searched the forum, and I cannot find where this is.

I came to this site from the fsarchiver site, where the author recommended that using SystemRescueCD was an excellent way to run his utility as a standalone partition imaging tool.

I see 'fsarchiver' mentioned in the forums, but can't figure out why it wouldn't show up on one of the screen-shots, or the manual.

I do find references to partimage, but following the links back to the partimage site, I see that Ext4 is 'unsupported' and this is my reason for looking for fsarchiver.

fsarchiver is a command line tool so you should not expect any icon or things like that in the menus. Basically all you have to do is to read the Quick Start Guide and then use fsarchiver from the command line in SystemRescueCd.
