Diskless Remote Boot in Linux

This release of DRBL live (2.4.7-7) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.


  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2016/Oct/28).
  • Linux kernel was updated to 4.7.8-1.
  • Package drbl was updated to 2.22.4-drbl1, and clonezilla was updated to 3.24.2-drbl1.
  • Language files hu_HU, ja_JP.UTF-8, de_DE, fr_FR, it_IT, and es_ES was updated. Thanks to Greg Marki, Akira YOSHIYAMA, Michael Vinzenz, Jean-Francois Nifenecker, Gianfranco Gentili, Juan Ramón Martínez and Alex Ibáñez López.
  • Packages dislocker, ext4magic, myrescue, os-prober, powertop were added.


  • Replace boot parameter noprompt with noeject since live-boot >= v3 uses noeject, not noprompt.
  • Change /proc/sys/vm/highmem_is_dirtyable to 1 when running i686 Linux kernel and the RAM size is larger than 8 GB. Thanks to Little Vulpix for this suggestion. Ref: https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/discussion/Clonezilla_live/thread/ba31ffc8
