Recovery Is Possible (RIP) is a Slackware-based CD or floppy boot/rescue/backup/maintenance system.
Version: 9.3Recovery Is Possible (RIP) is a Slackware-based CD or floppy boot/rescue/backup/maintenance system. It has support for a lot of filesystem types (Reiserfs, Reiser4, ext2/3, iso9660, UDF, XFS, JFS, UFS, HPFS, HFS, MINIX, MS DOS, NTFS, and VFAT) and contains a bunch of utilities for system recovery.
Operating System: Linux
R.I.P. also has IDE/SCSI/SATA, PCMCIA, RAID, LVM2, and Ethernet/DSL/cable/PPP/PPPOE network support.
The bootable CD image `RIP-12.4.iso.bin' can be written to a CD/DVD disk, using cdrecord/dvdrecord etc.
The 126.96.36.199 kernel has IDE/SATA and SCSI support. The kernel also has PCMCIA, LVM2, RAID, and Ethernet/cable/dsl/ppp/ pppoe/wireless networking support.
These are some of the programs it contains (partimage/partimaged, parted, dump/restore, reiserfsck, fsck.reiser4, fdisk, cfdisk, sfdisk, mke2fs, e2fsck, tune2fs, debugfs, mkfs.xfs, jfs_mkfs, jfs_fsck, xfs_repair, cdrecord/dvdrecord, mkisofs, dvd rw-format, growisofs, ntfsresize, mkntfs, lynx, mutt, fetchmail, pop3spam, popselect, ncftp, epic irc, tin, telnet, wget, naim, zgv, testdisk, smbclient, smbmount, ssh/sshd, rsync, udp-sender/receiver, lde, blesstivo, rtvpatch, chntpw, cmospwd, grub, grubconfig, smartctl, memtest86, captive-ntfs, ddrescue, dd_rescue, acpitool, dmidecode, hwinfo, lshw, ethtool)
It also includes the DVD udf filesystem packet writing tools (cdrwtool, mkudffs, pktsetup).
The 'reiserfsck' and 'fsck.reiser4' programs are used to check and repair a Linux reiserfs and reiser4 filesystem.
The 'xfs_repair' program is used to repair a Linux xfs filesystem.
The 'jfs_fsck' program is used to check and repair a Linux jfs filesystem.
The 'e2fsck' program is used to check and repair a Linux ext2 or ext3 filesystem.
The 'ntfsresize' program non-destructively resizes Windows XP/2000/NT4 or Windows Server 2003 NTFS filesystems. Read /usr/doc/RIP/ntfsresize.txt on the rescue system.
The 'parted' program is used for creating, destroying, resizing (fat16/32, ext2/3, reiserfs v3.6), checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganising disk usage, copying data between hard disks and disk imaging.
The partition image program 'partimage' saves partitions in the ext2, ext3, reiserfs, jfs, xfs, ufs, ntfs, fat16, and fat32 formats to an image file. Only used blocks are copied to save space and increase the speed. The image file can be compressed, in gzip or bzip2 formats.
