Clonezilla Live is a well-known live boot distribution based on the Debian Sid repository, since it provides a multitude of tools for troubleshooting, restoration, disk image cloning, partitioning, etc. This distribution is maintained by Steven Shiau, and has recently announced the release of Clonezilla Live version 2.8.1, which comes powered by the Linux 5.15.5 LTS kernel by default.
After a month and a half of development, after the release of version 2.8, it has finally arrived. Now you can download and use Clonezilla Live 2.8.1 with one of the latest kernels released with long-term support. The previous version of this suite was powered by Linux 5.14, which reached the end of its life cycle in November 2021.
This kernel not only means having the latest patches and new features implemented in the kernel, it is also an advantage for Clonezilla Live, which will see improved hardware support. On the other hand, the integration of this kernel is not the only thing new in this version of Live, there have also been improvements to support detecting disks hd1, hd2, etc., a new function has been added to prevent the image file of a partition from being split when an image is saved by the ocs-sr script.
Another novelty in this version of Clonezilla Live is that it has added support for dracut to improve system restore CentOS Linux 6.x. On the other hand, several bugs that were affecting previous versions have been corrected, there are also updates to improve the scripts, the translations of several languages in which this system is available have also been updated, etc.
