I’ve found a laptop works brilliantly. You automatically have 2 interfaces (assuming Linux recognizes the wireless card)–one (wired) for the imaging network and the other (wireless) for internet access.
Change your wired interface to a static IP:
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
Let’s get Clonezilla configured by typing:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install drbl
sudo drblsrv -i # accept defaults
sudo drblpush -i # accept defaults (except possibly which interface is connected to Internet)
Clonezilla creates a folder /home/partimag that belongs to root–I suggest changing ownership of the folder (and included files and folders) to a different admin user.
OK, now some double-checking…
Be sure the DHCP server is listening on the correct interface (eth0 or eth1, etc.):
sudo nano /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server
You want to see: INTERFACES=”eth0″ ## (or similar)
The config file is here:
At the bottom, you’ll want your subnet to be *different* than your normally used one (e.g. you probably want 192.168.10.0)
To start Clonezilla server:
sudo dcs clonezilla-stop
Bonanza! Another useful project to amaze your friends and family, co-workers too ?
