VSIDO FSA updated today for the new 5.19.0-2 kernel

You can download the vsido_26SEPT2022 fsarchive at the VSIDO download site here

There is also a How To on how to effectively use fsarchive to get this installed

There is a current a package list that shows everything that is installed in VSIDO. Please review this file and let me know of anything needed removed or added

Might want to also be aware that SWAP may also need tinkering if you have/use one. I do on this lappy so it can go into hibernate easily.  I think I had a couple of /etc/fstab edits to make before that all settled itself as well.  I'm thinking anyone using a sid is probably pretty versatile using things like blkid and mkswap and swapon stuff on the fly...  8)

True that.. Luckily I already had a how to on how to change the UUID to avoid conflicts and just pointed to that. I don't think it will be an issue but bases are now covered..

Thanks Jedi

Are you enjoying GMB and Pithos again?

Be careful of the same UUID on the same machine if you have multiple installs. That is a natural issue with fsarchive like the time zone because it keeps it.. I think I will add how to change the UUID in the After you install section and HIGHLY recommend it be done

What say you?  It most likely won't ever hit anyone but peeps like you and I and jedi, who are constantly in testing mode, I think I will add it just to make sure that people can see it could be an issue

Your quick. The fixes look good.

I added a blurb about pointing out that US Central Tiimezone is preserved in the fsarchive, so users outside that zone will need to make a change manually.

I added step 10a: Change your timezone, because the timezone is US Central Time (Chicago)  that's because fsarchiver preserves that information, and it's simply restored. You can use this link - Set/Change timezone Debian 10. The Debian Wiki also has the info, but it's in this really, really verbose wiki page

Thank you!

For Method 1

Change:

Code: [Select]
sudo fsarchiver -v restfs vsido_linux_02SEPT2022.fsa /dev/sdxx
to

Code: [Select]
sudo fsarchiver -v restfs vsido_linux_02SEPT2022.fsa id=0,dest=/dev/sdxx
So it matches up with the SpaceFM command in image #3 but without the variable substitutions.

Take this line ahead of Step 8:

Code: [Select]
These things should be done once you boot and are logged into the new install the first time
and increase the font size or something so that the break between installing and post-install customizations sticks out.

Done ... See if it now matches your thoughts

Performed another install this morning. I guess it would be Method 3.


Added this content to the How To

Please look, vet and advise

Thanks

and that command needs to be done before updating grub. So it would be better to have it ahead of step 7. More like Method 1 - use SpaceFm and Method 2 - use command line. Once fsarchive extracted, proceed to updating grub.

Please reread the instructions again and fact check error check it.. It is now a 2 method install process

Thanks again

Installed from the command line (see the fsarchiver home page for more info) since I don't have spacefm installed. Pretty painless since the command is in the screenshots.

Hey RatMan,

I added a 7a: section above that details the terminal method of installing the VSIDO fsa, would you mind giving it a once over to make sure it is what you did and that I didn't miss anything

Thanks

Aye, it really does not need spacefm installed and can be done with the command line.. I will add that step to the How To.. Also it does not need to be a formatted or mounted partition.. In SpaceFM there is a command menu entry for backup and restore using fsarchiver

Thanks for this feedback RatMan, it will make the How To better
