This release of Clonezilla live (2.4.2-32) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.


  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2015/Aug/05).
  • Linux kernel was updated to 4.1.3-1. From Linux kernel v4, the default union file system has been changed to overlay, therefore if you edit boot parameter manually, you have to use "union=overlay". No more using "union=aufs".
  • Partclone was updated to 0.2.81-drbl2. Now it supports VMFS partition >= 256 GB. A TUI crash issue for vmfs was fixed. Updated xfs and e2fs libs were used.
  • Enabled vmfs3 and vmfs5 support since partclone has solved the issue.
  • Live-boot was updated to 4.0.2-1.drbl4. Parameter nicif was added back.
  • Program sfdisk (>=2.26) is used as the default program to create GPT partition. Program sgdisk is the backup plan.
  • A better mechanism was added to get the linking status of network card in ocs-live-netcfg.
  • When /home/partimag is a mount point, prep-ocsroot should use "skip" as the default item. Thanks to Bruce Solomon [rufovillosum _at_ yahoo com].
  • NVME device is supported.

  • The "Unable to find target partition" issue in GPT disk has been fixed.
  • When the image saved from sda, for example, was restored to sdb, the swap parttion was not restored correctly.
  • Option "-k1" failed due to ocs-expand-mbr-pt failed to read the output of sfdisk >= 2.26.
  • The output file of update-efi-nvram-boot-entry failed to assign the correct variables.
  • Efibootmgr >= 0.12 has newer output format. Thanks to johnv-valve for reporting this (
  • Failed to process LVM about PV on multiple partitions and LV with snapshots. Thanks to SLLabs Louis and Shaun Rowland for providing the patches. (
