Rescatux 0.74 released

Rescatux is a Debian GNU/Linux based live cd aimed at GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows rescue tasks thanks to its graphical wizard named Rescapp.

Rescatux 0.74 stable version has been just released is available for you to download.

Check Rescatux 0.73 release

If you already have Rescatux 0.73 there’s no need to download Rescatux 0.74.

This is a quick release with almost no changes so this piece of news will be quite short. Please check Rescatux 0.73 released piece of news for the full detail of what Rescatux has in it.

The original idea was to work on Super Grub2 Disk but I just realised that I had to update the official Super Grub2 Disk irc channel… and, guess what, Rescatux also uses IRC so it needed a quick update.

I have almost not tested this Rescatux version. Was it not to work for you please try Rescatux 0.73 instead. Feedback on stuff that it previously worked ok on Rescatux 0.73 but it no longer works in Rescatux 0.74 on the github issues page is welcomed.

Rescatux 0.73 features Rescapp 0.56

Main changes

The last Rescatux stable version was released on April 2020. That’s about one and a half year ago.

This is a quick and dirty release in order to change Rescapp default chat irc support channels from Freenode to Libera.

As Debian Buster has had some packages updated in the meanwhile it will also feature minor packages updates.

This iso is greater than 700 MiB so it does not fill into a CD. You should use an USB. I might try to shrink the iso back into a CD in the future.

    1. No, this is not an intented feature of Rescatux.

      Of course, you could do that manually thanks to debootstrap, parted and so on but… you know… you can use any Debian/Ubuntu based live cd for that.

  1. I have copied an ext4 Ubuntu partition from backup medium and want to make this partition bootable again.
    Therefore, I have prepared a Rescatux 0.74 on an USB stick of 2 GB capacity.
    The bootable USB stick was created by rufus-4.2 with no errors.
    However, the HP Pavillion notebook does not start the Rescatux in UEFI mode (authentication error).
