PartedMagic lo strumento per la gestione dei dischi fissi più celebre del panorama GNU/Linux.

Maria Susana Diaz | 20:02 |
Un CD-live indispensabile per chiunque debba manipolare le proprie partizioni o fare qualsiasi operazione sui supporti fissi o removibili

Una ISO , scaricabile liberamente, che ha veramente tutto l’indispensabile per operare su partizioni di ogni tipo: aufs, ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, ocfs2, reiserfs, reiser4, xfs, zfs, con supporto anche per Windows Vista, in questa ultima release.

La live ha un’interfaccia grafica con Xfce, Thunar come file manager grafico, Leafpad come editor di testo e xorg-server-1.3 che supporta quasi tutte le schede grafiche.

Ottime le utility del menù che permettono di svolgere, in modo semplice, diverse operazioni tipo: montare o smontare dischi e partizioni o creare automaticamente una live del cd su una chiavetta USB.


Ultima versione stabile rilasciata: PartedMagic 5.8.

Aggiornament
i: (via Distrowatch)


Parted Magic Patrick Verner has announced the release of Parted Magic 5.8, a specialist Linux-based live CD designed for disk partitioning and data rescue tasks: "After several months of work, a new version is ready for release. Many bugs have been fixed and many core programs have been updated. You will notice the Linux 2.6.36 kernel and the newest version of the Gnome Partition Editor (GParted). There is also a mess of new stuff as well. Parted Magic now includes the SciTE text editor. For the first time the ISO image can be fully loaded into RAM and booted. This means, for example, that the default syslinux menu can be used for a PXE boot. The following programs have been updated: Clonezilla 1.2.6-40, Linux kernel 2.6.36.2, BusyBox 1.17.4, SimpleBurn 1.6.0, ClamAV 0.96.5, e2fsprogs 1.41.14, GParted 0.7.1."

Nuova major release per Parted Magic, lo strumento per la gestione dei dischi fissi più celebre del panorama GNU/Linux: gli sviluppatori hanno infatti rilasciato Parted Magic 5.2, che, a detta degli stessi, introduce nuove interessanti funzionalità.

Le novità, infatti, sono subito riscontrabili fin dalla fase di avvio, che vede l’entrata in gioco di intramfs, che sostituisce il classico initrd. I cambiamenti, però, non si fermano qui: vediamo insieme quali sono le altre innovazioni presenti in Parted Magic 5.2

Sempre per quanto riguarda la fase di avvio, bisogna segnalare l’introduzione del caricamento dei driver necessari direttamente dal Kernel, mentre importanti novità arrivano anche dalla gestione dei file system, grazie al supporto a Btrfs. La modalità a basso consumo di RAM viene avviata da ora con Xvesa, TWM, e una risoluzione 800×600, e tramite l’utilizzo di CD-RW è possibile salvare la sessione corrente.

Altre informazioni sono disponibili sul sito ufficiale del progetto, da cui è possibile anche scaricare le immagini ISO ufficiali da masterizzare.

La lista dei programmi che contiene è davvero corposa tra i tanti segnalerei:

* Gparted: con una bella interfaccia grafica per partizionare;

* Filesystem tool: con l’ultimo NTFS-3g che abilita la scrittura su filesystem NTFS in aggiunta ai tool soliti per tutte le partizioni;

* Boot loader utility con grub, lilo e ms-sys (per creare un boot record di emergenza per sistemi Windows);

* Xfburn: per masterizzare;

* Xarchiver: come interfaccia grafica per i vari formati di compressione file;

* Partimage: per creare o ripristinare immagini di dischi o partizioni;

* Tool per il recupero dati: TestDisk, Myrescue, Safecopy, Ddrescue.
