Urgent! Patched version (fixed some severe bugs)

Post by vvs1 » Mon Dec 22, 2008 10:37 am

As the authors team is silent for some months (from August 2008), I've posted a patched version of partimage to http://narod.ru/disk/4545483000/partimage_vvs.tgz.html

Fixed bugs: Incorrect order of partitions types detection (magick numbers recovering). These fact may lead to the NTFS (for example; in real life ANY filesystem will be corrupted) corruption.

Added feature: a kind of path (where to store an image) selection menu on the main partimage page.

The version described is used in the PartedMagic http://partedmagic.com/ distro for some months (since Aug 27 2008). One can look at the screenshots with small path selection button there.

Is this website (http://narod.ru/disk/4545483000/partimage_vvs.tgz.html) available in English?

I do not know whether this is a valid or useful patch. Also since partimage has not been under active development for some time now, I'm not sure if this patch has been or will be integrated into partimage.

Hi to all,

Sorry for this late response, but it seems that these patches had been integrated in the last partimage version (0.6.9). To verify how these modifications were added, one can browse the git tree from the sourceforge site (http://partimage.git.sourceforge.net/).

Cordially,
