linux default iconLiveBackup (a LiveCD creation toolbox) Publisher's description

LiveBackup is a framework to create live-cd's from installed Linux systems.

LiveBackup is a framework to create live-cd's from installed Linux systems. It supports different hardware detection systems and provides user configuration separated from backup images. Please visit the project page for more details.


Your Linux system can be stored in a compressed archive. Supported formats are squashfs, compressed cloop image (using isofs or ext2) or a simple file copy of the directory structure. To recover files you simple mount your archive.
Your backup is bootable as a live system. You can run it on native hardware (where your original system is installed) or on other PC's using hardware detection.
LiveBackup supports selection between different kernel versions. If you run the Live-System on the native Hardware you may want to use your customized kernel. If you start your system on other hardware you better use one of the provided generic Linux kernels.
Hardware detection is modularized and runs from initrd. There is no need to install special packages to use it. Different hardware identification system are supported (libkuzu, libdiscover).
It is possible to configure/modify the live system without any need to change the backup archive. This is the main task you probably have to do once when you create your LiveBackup.
LiveBackup contains support for different storage media like CD, DVD, USB-sticks or network drives
It provides a directory structure which helps you to maintain different system images which you may support on a Live-DVD.
It provides a development environment for creating your LiveBackup. This includes logging and a shell prompt after system setup. You can check your setup before the sysV init boot procedure starts.
Testing of your ISO images prior to burning works using a PC emulation like qemu (http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/).
