Backup with G4L gone wrong
Dec 18th, 2009 at 9:05am

I have a system that works on a sorting machine that uses an old modified version of devian which controls a series of motors. The IT guy from my company was trying to back it up using G4L and he accidentally (that's what he says) started doing the backup on the same disk. He stopped the process abpout 5 seconds after he realized it but it was too late :-S now we have en error stating kernel panic error init = and it does not boot anymore. Any suggestions?

Yikes.  Before you do anything, you should probably trying to mount the disk on a running system and back up as much of the data that is still there if you can.

Only think I can think to try to fix it is reinstalling the kernel.  How modified is this Debian?  Do you know what modules you need in the kernel? 

On a side note, I had some trouble with G4L and found CloneZilla easier and more reliable.
