Thanks for your patch. I would be glad to merge it to partimage-0.6.7 but first I must be sure it does not introduce bugs. It's possible to have a program at runtime with a program that compile with no problem. We need to be sure an image made with an x86 machine will be restored successfully on x64...

It seems you are saving your partition on a filesystem that does not support large files (files larger than 2GB). File system that does not supports large files: fat16, fat32, reiser-3.5, old ext2, nfs/samba (depending on the options) You should save to another filesystem or with another mount optio...

The dev package must be missing. On several distributions, you need both package.rpm and packagedev.rpm (libnewtdev or something like this)

Partimage ignore all filesystem codes you could set with fdisk. It only determines the FS with the contents of the partition. Is your partition a reiserfs ? reiserfs has 64 KB unused at the beginning, and it may contains a FAT32 bootsector. Try to erase it (dangerous !!!): dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/xx...

The reiserfs header is located around offset 64KB in the partition. Maybe your ntfs was a reiserfs disk before. You may erase it by hand but that's dangerous, be carreful

Have a look at the "magic string" "ReIsEr2Fs"

Hi, 1) Partimage does not create the structure. It just write data inside. You have to create the partition yourself (size >= as the original) a) cannot restore to partition small (even if a lot of free space) b) just try, you will have an error if smaller 2) Of course, you can change the device. Bu...

This may be a bug. You should uncompress by hand (gzip -d) and restore with partimage.

Try to make an fsck on the saved partition in order to be sure it is sane, and also check the partition where you save with e2fsck...

is there enough free space ?

What file system do you try to save ?

The maximal file size may be 2 GB (on FAT, ext2, and ext3), and it can't be 450 MB. If you want to be sure there is no limit, use Reiser-3.6, Reiser-4, XFS or JFS.
