Thread: Leap 42.2 KDE clonezilla (also praise)

    Thumbs up Leap 42.2 KDE clonezilla (also praise)

    Hi OpenSuse Familie,

    I wonder how I could get clonezilla installed on my opensuse installation.

    Also, a little history:

    First I must admit, for a reason i don't know myself just didn't like OpenSuse, maybe it is the EULA screen greeting me, reminding on Micro$oft.

    But, after i installed it, I also installed PlayOnLinux, and World of Tanks.

    (World of Tanks liked to crash after 10 games latest)

    I had done this on Arch, Antergos, Xubuntu etc. not much success.

    Best running was on Antergos KDE until I installed opensuse 42.2 KDE and I must say, not even a single crash for 2 days and hours of playing.

    I am very impressed!

    KDE on OpenSuse Leap 42.2 is more snappy and the system is actually very very stable. (I am new to KDE, XFCE was my environment for half of my life)

    First I wanted to remove it after install, but it seems to keep that place as main OS on my PC.

    How would you update when the number changes? I loved the rolling Arch release, also for the huge amount of software available.

    Sadly the installer chose XFS for my home partition and I rather had ext4 or BTRFs.

    ... a little late, now, unless you want to re-install, you have the option in the installer to decide what you want instead of what the installer proposes. I have never accepted the proposed setup in the installer, instead opting to choose my own disk layout and file systems. There is an advanced partitioner in the installer that allows you to do that.

    ... or, if you understand what you are doing, you can back up all files from your home partition and reformat it to ext4, then restore all your files.

    The best way to do that would probably be with a live CD/DVD or live USB device. I would recommend you use GParted Live or Hiren's Boot CD (use the live partitioner from the first menu that comes up).

    You could then straight copy the files to another device or another partition (linux partition, of course, to keep all linux file parameters intact), reformat the /home partition, then copy the files back. You *might* have to then re-run the Grub installer from the Rescue disk, but if that is the case, simply come back here for directions -- unless you already know how.

    I wonder how I could get clonezilla installed on my opensuse installation.
    Not sure why you want to do that. I use Clonezilla all the time, but from boot CDs and boot USBs. That is usually the preferred and most reliable method.

    KDE on OpenSuse Leap 42.2 is more snappy and the system is actually very very stable.
    Glad to hear that.

    You should never clone fro a live system since can change during the clone processes. You don’t change tries while driving down the road

    Yes, another good -- for some, even better -- method. But the main point of your message -- I assume -- is to give a (so far) unanimous vote to doing this kind of an operation from a Live CD/DVD/USB.

    BTW: Interesting new avatar, if I could only make out what it is. Too small for my eyes to see.
