Natan:

Latest new beta still has same problem. Tried it on my laptop. Will try it on my desktop tonight.

Last beta version that worked (for me) was the initrd.gz from 10/17/ with the kernel from 10/28. The breakage started with the 10/29 version of the beta.

Mark,
can you get the /tmp/x.log file and copy/paste it here ? this might be related to your H/W config and a possible unability of PING to detect it correctly.

OK, here's the results of fdisk -lu:

I ran PING from a shell and kill the process after viewing the screen for saving the backup. As before, there were no "( )" entries in the screen, so I could not select a partition.

Mark, is the screen the on where at the top it says "Choose the partition where to store the image"?
All I do to get that screen to work (note I don't have the [ ] for this screen either, don't think it needs it) is to highlight the drive/partition I want to store the image to using the up/down arrows and then press enter, then it moves onto the next screen fine (I noticed that if I puch space bar on that screen it does toggle between ok and cancel, dont think it matters). Dunno if this is the issue with yours or not.

Paulzors:

That's the first thing I tried -- highlighting the partition selection.

But when I do that, it does not select the proper partition. I know that because my target partition has a Partimage directory to hold the image backups, and when I select that partition from the list and enter Partimage on the next screen, it fails to find the directory. So, it must be mounting a different partition than the one I selected.

I've tried this on several different machine, and in all cases, it fails to mount the proper partition.

I'm going to make the exact same partitions on a VM and see what (the hell :lol:) happened !

I've clicked the URL on your latest post several times, and every time, I get an Apache error message indicating that it can't locate the file. Am anxious to try the latest beta to see if I can get past the target partition problem.

Hello, like the latest beta it loads much faster than current stable release, however I notice a 400-500 MiB slow down on the write(s) to my HD now when I restore my partition. When I use the latest stable version I dont get this slow down on my write(s) to HD when I restore my partition. Also notice some missing [ ] on a few screens however not a problem since its already highlighted I just use the arrow keys and press enter to select. I hope you don't plan on keeping that % warning thing b4 the restore process begins where you enter yes. I like the fact that even if windows don't shut down properly I'm still able to mount my volume and proceed with restoring very nice work awesome.

Looked at your other postings and figured out that if I insert "PING." in front of the download zip filename, it works.

So, I have it now and will try it out tonight.

Natan:

I stand corrected! It appears that the backup operations DO work!!

What was throwing me off is that, using older versions, when I selected a target partition and entered the Partimage directory name, since I always have at least one backup already stored in that directory, I would see the list of existing backups. Under the new versions, there is no list of backups shown.

So, I presumed that since there were no files being shown, there were no files present and that PING had actually mounted the wrong partition. The complication is that I use the same Partimage directory name on all the partitions, I just change the names of the backups.

And ... when I started a Restore, I chose the same partition and directory that I selected during the backup, and sure enough, the backup I just made was there.

One small nit, though, the backups are not being sorted in ascending order in the list on the screen because my latest backup should have been at the bottom of the list and it was actually in the middle. When I view the same directory in Nautilus or Gnome-commander, my most recent backup is shown at the bottom of the list, not in the middle.

Another plus ... I noticed that Cancel really works now. That's great!! Previously, it only sent me back to the same screen. I had to reboot to cancel out.

So ... sorry if I caused some confusion, but I didn't know you changed the program to no longer list the existing backups on the screen when the backup Directory is entered.

Re: Announcing PING BETA Releases

Just did a restore with latest version and this time kernel loaded slower than previous, it loads like the recent stable version. My write speed is still slow at 900 MiB/min, with the stable current release my write speed is usually 1400+ MiB/min. The back up directory is fixed now and it shows all of my folders etc. Before the restore started it said something like it could not write to mbr as the restore image was in there or something like that, not sure what it meant by that. It still missing [ ] when it asks where my backup is stored but all i need do is arrow and itll highlight the correct partition then enter. Still wondering why my write speed is slower with this build cause when I use the stable release 2.01.19 its much faster when writing a restore.

Hi people,
I'm glad to have so much feedback -- thanks :D
I had forgotten the "PING.", in effect... this always happens when you're in a hurry.

In effect, the GUI has been a little modified. When the user selects partitions to be stored, the interface doesn't enumerate any more the directories that are in your images directory, because it made little sense to allow a restoration after the user had chosen parts to backup. On the contrary, we won't show a "Create New Image" directory if you chose to restore.

The second modified menu is the one that asks where to backup partitions, or where to get the image to restore. As only one choice is possible, it made no sense to use checkboxes (i.e. [ ]), and hitting Enter had to be enough. I understand this may have been confusing.

Right now... the long-awaited incremental saving is on its way. I think a WhatsNew.doc would be necessary too, as many things have been improved from 2.01.x to 3.00.

Regards
Natan

Natan:

Thanks for the explanations. However, I liked the enumeration of directories in the target directory. That allowed me to see when I made the last backup and provided a confirmation that I had selected the correct partition and directory.

Oh well...

LOL

Well, it's time to announce a new BETA =>PING 3.00 20081110. Several annoying bugs should be fixed, and a first version of incremental backup should work (well, provided you've first created a new image and asked for the recording of file details, i.e. sizes and MD5 checksums, which is now proposed by a popup).

Code: Select all

* 3.00.00 2008-11-10
  - Linux kernel upgraded from 2.6.26.5 to 2.6.27.5.
  - Added dm-raid45 patch to the kernel.
  - Added drivers for Attansic 1e (ASUS Atheros NICs).
  - Samba upgraded from 3.2.3 to 3.2.4.
  - CLAM AV upgraded from 0.93.1 to 0.94.
  - Added vol_id to the OS (part of udev), so to get filesystems'
    labels, and maybe restore them one day (out of the BS-dd way).
  - Removed smbmount, smbmnt, smbumount. These antiquities were older
    than the samba package installed, and could lead shell users to
    confusion.
  - Added Reiser4Progs 1.0.6 and ReiserFSProgs 3.6.19 to the OS,
    so we can now play with Reiser filesystems.
  - Added Testdisk 6.10 to the OS. Can recover a partition table,
    the MBR, a bootsector, partitions ... great app. Includes Photorec.
  - If the user has forgotten to unzip Partimage.zip to the dir
    he wants to store images in, we'll now create the
    Create_New_Image directory, but not the other ones.
  - Detects unused segments in devices (so we could expand parts).
  - Little bug fix: a cciss directory on a bootable media would
    not be detected (thx Superdac).
  - Added the parameter Extend_Parts_Whenever_Possible.
    Sometimes, you'll restore images to a bigger drive.
    Sometimes, there will be empty space after or between parts.
    Set this parameter to Y if you want PING to extend partitions
    and contained filesystems each time it's possible. If the
    param is not set, PING will ask the user.
  - Reports the end of the /var/log/partimag-debug.log in /tmp/x.log.
  - Don't try any more to use ntfsresize if the unused space is
    ridiculously small --wouldn't do anything anyway.
  - If there's only one partition and you want a local backup,
    PING will now resize not only NTFS but also ext2-3, fat32,
    and hsf+ filesystems (using parted and resize2fs, as parted
    can't handle ext2/3 any more).
  - The antique Partimage.zip's folder Partition_and_Format_ANY_Computer
    has been removed. Instead, write a file in an image directory, and
    call it HDD_Target.txt . Copy the structure of a HDD_Look.txt file
    and adjust to what you want your HDD to look like.
  - The antique Partimage.zip's folder Backup_Local_Hard_Disk has
    been removed. Instead, create an image and ask for tar/gz instead
    of partimage or zsplit.
  - No more .part ; these files must be replaced with a HDD_Target.txt
    file. Sorry, no choice.
  - You can now choose tar+gzip/bzip2 instead of partimage or zsplit.
    I guess this should especially help people cloning linux systems.
    If used to clone a Windows system, ACLs won't be restored.
  - Finally! finally, in the menu used to choose what partitions to
    store, loop until an item is chosen (the Space Bar thing).
    Honestly, let's call it a Bug fix.
  - If an addon-*.tar.gz file is stored in an image directory, it will
    be untarred to the root of the PING OS before any other image file
    is addressed.
  - If a ping.conf file is stored in an image directory, it will be
    parsed before all other image files are addressed (but second to a
    possible addon-*.tar.gz). The contained parameters will overwrite
    those eventually passed by /etc/ping.conf or the APPEND line of
    syslinux.
  - Add a screen warning if there's data on the disk and it's going
    to be overwritten -- except if AUTO mode is set on, or if new
    param Dont_Warn_Me is set on.
  - Linux kernel: added drivers for nVidia IDE.
  - Linux kernel: added drivers for Marvell SATA (experimental).
  - Dell fix: we now propose users to let us do the job for them.
    If they let us do, when creating an image out of a Dell box,
    we'll store only the part containing the OS and not the two
    Dell parts. We'll also fix the boot.ini for it to boot the now
    first part, and will prepare a HDD_Target.txt file so restoration
    will use all available space on the drive. Finally, at restore
    time, we'll write a standard MBR instead of Dell's, and will
    correct the boot sector in order to let it know there's no more
    Dell Utility partition. Should boot.
  - Howto: mention Unetbootin as a good tool to have a USB device
    boot PING.
  - Bug fix: the modules were stripped and wouldn't work any more.
  - Bug fix: add devices sde and sdf to the devices browsing. Thx Daniel.
  - Bug fix: PING would incorrectly handle systems with more than one HDD.
  - Added kernel/ping.conf parameters New_Image_Name and Parts_To_Backup
    so to make it possible to pass "Create_New_Image" as a value for
    parameter Image_To_Restore, and have a full image creation automated
    with no user interaction. See the sample ping.conf file and the
    Howto for details.
  - Incremental imaging (mainly done by adding archives to a preexisting
    image).
  - Added kernel/ping.conf parameter Already_Existing_Image.
    If there's already an image in your Directory called
    after the New_Image_Name you have set, you might define here
    what PING should do with the Already_Existing_Image parameter.
    Set it either to "Replace" (old dir will be removed), either to
    "Rename" (old dir will be renamed to xxx.OLD.YYYYMMDDHHMMSS),
    either to "Update". The Update choice is only possible when the
    preexisting image has been made with version 3.00 or greater
    of PING, and if a xxxx.RecFiles.txt have been recorded (ex.:
    sda1.RecFiles.txt for partition /dev/sda1), containing the
    sizes and checksums of all files found on the part's filesystem.
    And if you set Already_Existing_Image to "Update,Replace",
    PING will try to update, but Replace if there's no
    xxxx.RecFiles.txt. "Update,Rename" is the last possible choice.
  - Remind basic shell help when dropping users to a shell.
  - If image files are called 'askme_a', 'askme_b', etc. the user will
    be asked for the target drive. So, if you've recorded, say, a
    SATA drive and got files sda, sda1.000, sda1.001, rename them
    to askme_a, askme_a1.000, askme_a1.001.
  - Bug fix: CIFS => username can now be blank.
  - No more SMBFS. CIFS is now the only choice (kernel 2.6.27+).
