The file will be stored in the directory where you are.

HFS+ Rescue / Struggling to figure out where restored files should show up.
« Last post by duncanmarshall on February 04, 2021, 12:42:01 PM »
I've never used this program before.  I have an HFS+ volume from a MacBook that I suspect has bad sectors.  I have no Apple devices to test with.  Instead I have Win7 and Linux.  My Linux install does not mount the HFS+ volume, unlike other working HFS+ volumes.  The MacBook that it came from showed the folder/question mark thing.

I went through the six steps that the hfsprecue documentaion outlines here: https://www.plop.at/en/hfsprescue/recover_files.html

I'm now trying to get just one file for test purposes, like so:

Code: [Select]

Giving this output:

Extracting the ExtentsOverflowFile to 'restored/ExtentsOverflowFile'.

You are forcing the block size. I assume, the Volume Header is not correct.
Automatic extracting of the ExtentsOverflowFile has been disabled! This means
strong fragmented files will not be restored! When you want to use the
ExtentsOverflowFile, then you have to restore it manually with '--extract-eof'.
Use '--ignore-eof' to restore without ExtentsOverFlowFile.

I don't see where the file is, or even where it should be.  I'm not really sure where to go from here with the process.

I have again a strange problem with booting pxe and mounting NFS share.
Tried with plop 19.4 and 20.1.
It has begun with an error "shared library libnsl.so.2 not found".
So ok, i made a symlink in the initrd:
Code: [Select]
ln -s libnsl-2.30.so libnsl.so.2Now this error is gone, but i get error "nolock" is needed.
So i added the option "nolock".
Then i get "mount.nfs: Protocol is not supported".  ::)
So i tried mounting with "nfsver=3", "vers=3" and always get  "mount.nfs: Protocol is not supported".
If i try with "vers=4" then i get "mounting failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory" what is correct because it is a NFS3 share.
When mountin it directly on the debian server all is ok, when mounting on LinuxMint all is ok...

What is wrong here? I am running out of ideas...  ???

Edit: Ok, switching to NFSv4 seemse to solve the problem. But it looks like plop can not mount NFSv3.

Boot Managers / Re: BootManager without LiLo/GRUB

Iiiiiiii'mmmmmm BACK!!!  8)

Getting weirdness from an MSI: FM2-A75IA-E53

Just need an all-in-one boot-loader that I can use without having to open a OS. Thanks for that!!!

The big reason that I'm posting is to donate. I don't have any bitcoin, and PayPal screwed me over... Any other way to get you a little something, or to help out?

Such a boot sequence is planed for PBM6, but currently the development is stopped for another project. Maybe a small update comes soon, but this will be only a driver update.
26
Thank you for the answer! And thank you for developing and maintaining this brilliant boot manager!

No, thats not possible.

Plop Linux / Re: customized iso copy2ram as default
« Last post by Elmar on December 16, 2020, 18:31:33 PM »
I would like to know if I can have additional package installed to ploplinux.
nmap hwinfo dcfldd beep python3-pip sshpass pigz isc-dhcp-server

Yes, you can add more programs. There are various ways.

Either you compile the programs by yourself or you use the binaries from other distros.
You can add the binaries to the ploplinux/bin directory.
Or you can add the binaries when you extract for example the usr.sqfs (unsquashfs usr.sqfs), add the files (to squashfs-root/bin/) and compress the usr.sqfs (mksquashfs squashfs-root usr.sqfs)
Or you use the build tools for the Live Release.


nmap, python3-pip (pip3) and isc-dhcp-server is already part of Plop Linux.

YES!
USB boot is a step to proof of concept, PXE add convenient a lot.
The distro to load up image is a ubuntu server, it is provisioned to a DHCP server if it isn't able to get IP.

I would like to know if I can have additional package installed to ploplinux.
nmap hwinfo dcfldd beep python3-pip sshpass pigz isc-dhcp-server
With these packages, so can run the clone script and PXE on ploplinux environment.

Many thanks

I would like to have a setup like this: boot manager tries to boot from usb device, if it's available - it just boots, but if some error occurs (=no usb drive present) it automatically loads from "fallback" device, such as partition on hdd. Sadly, my BIOS don't give me such an option, after USB device is removed it forgets about it completely, including boot order settings. Is it possible to achieve this with plop boot manager?
