How to install systemimager

Hi,anyone knows how to install systemimager on suse 11.1? The only reference I got are variations of this How To Back Up An Ubuntu 8.10 System With SystemImager | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials, but it is ubuntu based. I would like to setup the server part on suse. Any advice much welcome, thanks

A little outdated, and I don’t know what has changed with the newer version of systemimager, but you can check out this suse install
Installation of SystemImager | Department of Physics

Oh, and note that you will probably have to change the fstab and grub entries to /dev/sdX entries instead of the UUID that they changed to a couple of versions back.


thanks elserj, I’ll give it a try, and see if I manage to set it up :slight_smile:

Download and run this script:

  • chmod +x install
  • ./install --list
  • ./install --download-only --directory ./ systemconfigurator systemimager-common systemimager-client systemimager-boot-i386-standard systemimager-initrd-template-i386…

Alternatively, if you want to download all the packages and fight it out, run the ‘install --list’, and 'sed -i ‘s/http:/wget http:/g’ on a copy.

You can help me get a repo working through, if you want :slight_smile:
