Clonezilla-live-bug-report

#1
Thanks for this site and Easybcd.

In Clonezilla it is possible to create a bug report to send to Steven.
I have been able to create the report but am unable to find the darn thing.
Also I am a "SUDO" idiot. (Windozzzz you know)

Here is how I created the Clonezilla-live-bug-rpt:
sudo /opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-live-bug-report
This was run from the command line in Clonezilla and seemed to work. I am supposed to fill some stuff out in it and send it to Steven. CAN'T FIND IT.
All the sudo commands for this are to be run in Clonezilla.
Could someone give me some guidance please.

Hello phenix.
You will find it at the /opt/drbl/sbin/ directory, most likely, on your Linux partition. The file will be named "osc-live-bug-report".

Thanks for replying Coolname007.
I think but am not sure my problem might be that I am using PCLinuxOS.
I can find "opt" but there is no "DRBL".

Thanks for helping,
I have made a little progress. Here is what I did:
Booted up in Clonezilla and went to the command line.
keyed in the following:
sudo -i /opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-live-bug-report
Clonezilla then told me that it had created the report.
Keyed in cd /opt/drbl/sbin
It gave all the goodies in this directory of which "ocs-live-bug-report"
was one.
I then keyed in "ocs-live-bug-report"
Got message "You need to run this script "ocs-live-bug-report" as root.
How do I do that??? tried "SU" got nowhere

The file was created. Just cd /opt/drbl/sbin/ it, and then use cp ocs-live-bug-report /Documents to copy it to your Documents folder.

Thank you for replying.

I have to be in Clonezilla to access this report. So all instructions are executed in Clonezilla.

I tried your suggestion:
cp ocs-live-bug-report/documents
It didn't work..

I need to put the file on the E drive where PCLinuxOS resides.
So I tried:
cp ocs-live-bug-report /e:/home/jack/mydownload
It gave: can not create regular file/ no such file or directory

I then tried cp -- help
It scrolled past the 1st page and I could not read it.

Will try looking for more detailed explanation of the "CP" command

That's wrong. It should be:
cp ocs-live-bug-report /documents

You forgot the space between "report" and "/documents".

Unless you're using some kind of virtual install, Linux does not go on any Windows partition, and since the filesystem of the Linux partition is not recognized in Windows, and Linux does not use drive letters, there could be NO E: letter on your Linux partition.

Use the arrow keys to scroll up or down. You can also use "man cp" to display the documentation too.

Thanks again for helping.
I tried your suggestions and nothings working. (not your fault but mine).
My system has Windows vista on the 1st HD and PCLinuxOS on the 2nd hd.
The Clonezilla-live program is on a CD which I start from a cold boot. I then run
all the SUDO commands from Clonezilla's command line. It does not to my knowledge have any connection to either OS. I can see the file in Clonzilla but am not able to use it. I need to put it somewhere where I can read and modify it and send it on to the Clonezilla forum.

Sorry, I forgot you were doing this from a booted CD. Looks like you'll first need to mount the partition you're trying to copy to, with the "mount" command (assuming of course that the mount program is even on the Clonezilla cd). You can run "man mount" to read how to mount it.

Once you've got it mounted, its a matter of cd - ing to the directory where the file is, and copying it over to the mounted partition, beginning at the mounted point.

Clonezilla live bug report

You can call it a bug if you want but that does not make it a bug. This has already been discussed at length before and you can read DirectAdmins response to it on this forum. We have made some suggestions and if you refuse to take advantage of those then that is your decision. You can either take advantage of some of the suggestions or continue to have your ip blacklisted. That decision is yours. You can also put in a feature request.

I think you are getting your forums in a twist.
Nobody here of that name.
