file system involved is ext3 and without 'lvm'. so i am good on that. i could not find partimage-ng for download, could you point me to a genuine source, sourceforege doesn't have it. following is the link to /tmp/partimageng.log > http://pastebin.com/YrbmsF99 also noticed following error from partimage log in /var/log >> "[Can't read bit map block 0 from image]" looking out for that errors tells me that it could be because of running partimage in 'gui' mode as opposed to batch, still looking for more reasons. meanwhile i will look for other errors and wait for link to partimage-ng. regards, prem.
