Have you ever used clonezilla from the repo ? I can probably get
Clonezilla live to run from script OK, but DRBL Clonezilla is the
main program in the package it appears. Wish they were separate
packages I guess. Anyway, the DRBL is going to confuse the less
than expert user, so I'm tempted to leave the package out then,
leave it as an option.
Gotta say I agree with the confusion part. I used to use clonezilla in the shop where I worked for streaming disk images over a local net. If I remember correctly, it took me a couple of days just to get the settings right, and to get a routine down that was dependable and repeatable. I always say simpler is better. If you don't feel the necessity of including clonezilla, don't. You could get questions down the road that would take a shop lab to troubleshoot. I was simply commenting on the note included on your iso desktop that said clonezilla wasn't included for space reasons. Your iso image is already pretty "lean and mean".
As far as simplicity, I also used to use Acronis, streaming multiple images on the same local network. It was much, much easier. And, it can do one thing clonezilla, so far, can't. That is duplicating a RAID1 Windows image that is restorable to the target. But, Acronis is proprietary. One can obtain it if one knows where to look. But, the live CD needs its own boot environment, and the server and workstation versions run on Windows.
