Advertisement
#1
François Dupoux announced yesterday evening the immediate availability of SystemRescueCd 1.2.0 Linux distribution. Big news comes with this version of the tiny Gentoo-based operating system for systems administration and data recovery, as it now has a new desktop environment, Xfce4, and it is powered by the just released Linux kernel 2.6.29.3. Without further introduction, let's have a detailed look at the main features of SystemRescueCd 1.2.0:

Highlights of SystemRescueCd 1.2.0:

· Updated the standard Linux kernel packages to version 2.6.29.3;
· Updated the alternate Linux kernel packages to version 2.6.27.22;
· Support for the EXT4 and Reiser4 filesystems in Linux kernel 2.6.27.22;
· Support for the Btrfs filesystems in Linux kernel 2.6.29.3;
· Updated the Xorg Server to version 1.5.3;
· Replaced JWM with Xfce4, as the default desktop environment;
· Updated GParted to version 0.4.5 (with improved support for crypt-luks and dmraid);
· Updated FSArchiver to version 0.5.4;
· Updated TestDisk to version 6.11;
· Updated Photorec to version 6.11;
· Updated NTFS3G to version 2009.4.4;
· Updated GNU tar to version 1.22 (with LZMA support).

"A new fsarchiver version comes with this release. This program can be used to clone filesystems: it supports all the linux filesystems, including ext4 and btrfs. It’s also able to clone ntfs partitions. It can restore filesystems to a partition which is smaller than the original. It also comes with many interesting features: the compression is multi-threaded (interesting on multi-cores cpu), and it supports the very high compression algorithm called lzma (very good ratio and not too slow on quad-cores cpus). All the data are checksummed so it can handle corruptions." - said François Dupoux in the official release announcement.
