Useful Rescatux Options:

  • Filesystem check (Fix forced)
  • Fix of Windows MBR (Currently in beta status)
  • Boot Info Script

Changelog:

  • Added Support option: Share log on forum
  • Size was shrinked from 371 MB to 302 MB thanks to using LXDE as the default desktop.
  • Desktop was tied up a bit. Now every rescatux file is found at rescapp folder and there is a Rescapp shorcut in the desktop just in case you close Rescapp.

Some comments about the release:
I have postponed the work on the option that reset windows passwords till its author replies me about how to hack it.
This release has only one new useful option: Boot Info Script but, as far as I know, it is a great one because it would be the first live cd to include in it the boot info script.

As you have seen we have dropped the cut gnome and we use right now lxde. Every Rescatux file has been moved to rescapp inside the Desktop. So there might be bugs due to that. If you find any of those please comment on the Rescatux forum.

Useful Rescatux Options:

  • Restore Grub to the MBR
  • Update Grub Configuration
  • Filesystem check (Fix forced)
  • Fix of Windows MBR (Currently in beta status)

Changelog:

  • Grub install was updated to handle (Open)SUSE instalations with default (Open)SUSE grub2 package.

Some comments about the release:
I was supposed to work on the option that reset windows passwords but I have prefered to do a quick release with that fix to OpenSUSE installations that use grub2. It is interesting how OpenSUSE tweaks grub-install original behaviour so that you are forced to use yast or yast2 to reinstall it to your MBR. I just hope that Debian Live handles NTFS mounts ok so that I can run chntpw without too much hassless from the live cd.


I would like to confirm that grub install option does work well in (Open)SUSE (when you have grub2 package installed). Please comment on the Rescatux forum.
