    I can not list files in foxclone iso

    Clonezilla clone slows system to a crawl

    I cloned my OS to a larger (300gig) drive using Clonezilla. Now when I start it the splash screen takes a good 2 minutes to complete. Then when its running I am trying to do a backup with back-in-time. First I wanted to wipe my backup drive and gparted is running at a crawl. Also, I can not get...

    Do I need to extract iso files for a grub boot

    I removed "quite splash" from startup and saw that when it freezes it says "kernel panic - not syncing attempting to kill init! exitcode 'xxxxxx'". What does this tell me?

    Do I need to extract iso files for a grub boot

    I found that apparently, I don't need to extract anything. I simply put "vmlinuz" and "initrd" where they belong in the 40_custom script and I guess any extracting is don't automatically. I won't even try to understand this. My new problem is that when I click Ubuntu in the grub menu to run the...

    Do I need to extract iso files for a grub boot

    I have booted a few different distros from hard drive with grub. But now I have downloaded Ubuntu 22.10 and when I searched for the vmlinuz and initrd files (which are in 'casper') I find that all directories show 0 bytes until I extract them and THEN I am able to locate the files. I did not...

    Is this the best backup plan?

    Ok, it is apparent that because I want to use Jammy Jellyfish (22.04) I will need to alter my backup plan at least temporarily. Let me ask another question... It is alwat staed that each backup utility has a specific purpose. Backintime is for /Home backup.. Backintime (root) is for /ruut...

    Backintime on 22.04

    I understand that timeshift is for whole system backup which is what I use it for. I need Backintime for /Home.

    Is this the best backup plan?

    I never know that 'disks' performed an image. I only ever used it to view my partition information. I will have to look into this.

    Is this the best backup plan?

    Yes. 20.04 has Backintime working wonderfully but in 22.04 Backintime does not work. I used 20.04 now and I have 22.04 setup to experiment with.

    Is this the best backup plan?

    Ubuntu 20.04. I do regular backups with Backintime, saving /Home. I also do periodic backups of the system (minus /Home and all the other undesirables) using Timeshift. I think I should also include a backup of /root using the root version of Backintime. Is this correct? Will these three backups...

    Backintime on 22.04

    Has anyone gotten Backintime to work on 22.04 (Jammy)? Word on the street is that Python3 is the problem.
