Hi Josh/Prem,

I was trying to get xcat working with the PPC. However, I couldn't find the partimage-ng binary on the ramdisk. Is there any place I could find this package? I have the partimage binaries that I downloaded off a website, but couldn't find partimage-ng in that package. I am using statelite to capture the image from the PPC blade.

got it to work!!!

'usepartimageng=0' set it to 1.

never mind about the link to download partimage-ng, i was under the
impression, that i will have to install partimage-ng, then looked
around to realize it already exists in rootimg.gz.

sincere thanks for patiently helping, now moving to next step!

hi Josh,

I need to add this to the documentation and should have mentioned it earlier.
partimage can only capture a few file system types.  I don't remember the
exact list.  I know it includes ext2/ext3 and ntfs.  I also know that it
cannot capture ext4 and anything involving LVM.  That is part of why I
included support for partimageng.  If it doesn't natively know how to handle
the file system, it will fall back to using dd to capture it.  Search for
'usepartimageng=0' in the partimageng postscript and change it to =1 to switch
to using partimageng.

Is the file system to be captured either ext2 or ext3 and without having LVM
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
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.
