• Has anyone had any luck imaging Dell XT3’s? I had success all last summer (actually running on an old version of fog - .30) and just had to replace 2 HDs on them. The new HDs will not take an image. When I boot into the compatibility test of FOG I get a Network Pass, Disk Fail. The new drives are 4k drives and, I am decently sure, the old drives were not.

    I have since updated to fog .32 and still no luck. Any ideas?

    personally, i would recommend using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. haven’t had many people report problems with that. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is too new, we haven’t had a chance to fix all the issues with it.

    [B]I just updated to .33b myself. Ran into a few glitches but Tom and James helped out. With in an hour or two we were back up and running with fog. [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/posts/25028/[/url][/B]

  • Travis,

    Thanks much for the quick reply. I will try this today.

    Is there anything I should worry about when upgrading? Anything in specific I need to do pre or post install to have the best chance of upgrade success? While I have had great success with updates to FOG in the past few years I remember a time long ago when I upgraded and then had to rebuild from scratch.

    Thanks in advance!

    Give 33b a try, it should be able to image the 4k drives.

    [QUOTE]There are a few ways to get this file.

    First method is the preferred.

    Thru subversion. You may need to install the package for your particular system:

    svn checkout [url]https://svn.code.sf.net/p/freeghost/code/trunk[/url] fog_0.33b
    cd fog_0.33b/bin

    The next is to download the tarball from my website:
    wget --no-check-certificate [url]https://mastacontrola.com/fog_0.33b.tar.bz2[/url]
    tar -xjf fog_0.33b.tar.bz2
    cd fog_0.33b/bin

    The next method is to download from sourceforge as a zip. Change the number to the latest revision (if 1487 change the number after code- to 1487.
    wget [url]http://sourceforge.net/code-snapshots/svn/f/fr/freeghost/code/freeghost-code-1473-trunk.zip[/url]
    unzip freeghost-code-1473-trunk.zip
    cd freeghost-code-1473-trunk/bin

    The next method is you can pull the git hub clone. You need to have the git package installed for your particular system:
    git clone [url]https://github.com/mastacontrola/fogproject.git[/url]
    cd fogproject/bin

    Hopefully this helps clarify how to download and install.
