2015-10-10 03:33:05 -0500 asked a question How to boot fedora with a squashfs image as root fs

I made a squashfs image from my system root, I want to put it on a USB drive among some Live ISOs, and make boot menu using GRUB2.

What kernel boot parameters should I use to specify that Squashfs image as root file-system?

I used this as grub configuration, but Dracut fails to find and mount root:

insmod gzio
insmod xzio
insmod part_msdos
insmod squash4
insmod iso9660
insmod ext2
insmod btrfs
insmod regexp
insmod multiboot2
set pager=1
set timeout_style=menu
set timeout=10
load_video
set gfxpayload=keep
menuentry '2. Fedora Workstation' {
        set imgfile=/boot/images/fedora.squashfs
        loopback loop /$imgfile
        linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz-4.1.8-200.fc22.x86_64 ro rd.fstab=0 root=$imgfile elevator=deadline enforcing=0 #rhgb quiet LANG=en_US.utf8
        initrd (loop)/boot/initramfs-4.1.8-200.fc22.x86_64.img
}

It's ok, please paste this:
su -c 'yum list kernel > /tmp/tmpkernellist ; cat /boot/grub2/grub.cfg > /tmp/tmpgrub2cfg ; cat /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg > /tmp/tmpgrub2eficfg ; fpaste --fullpath /tmp/tmpkernellist <(ls -lah /boot) <(ls -lah /boot/grub2) /tmp/tmpgrub2cfg /tmp/tmpgrub2eficfg /etc/default/grub /etc/grub.d/* '

Do yum will successfully install kernel packages without any error?
Do you get new entries in grub boot menu?
check permissions and mount options of boot mount point

2014-07-30 15:14:55 -0500 edited question Acronis True Image alternative

Is there any alternative to Acronis True Image which supports ext4/btrfs and has the same capabilities? I want:

  • compression
  • partition/disk level and also file level backup and restore
  • image mounting
  • image integrity verification
