    Know of a livecd distro with GNU ddrescue?

    I would like to find a livecd that has the GNU ddrescue built in. This tool performs the same functions as dd_rhelp+dd_rescue (notice the underscore) except that its integrated into a single binary.

    Please pagedown once and read the "important note" section of this page http://www.kalysto.org/utilities/dd_rhelp/index.en.html

    Here is the homepage of gnu ddrescue http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html as you can see enabling the log file causes it to perform the same actions as the old dd_rhelp script.

    I'm tired of trying to use the POS mfslive cd. There are so many things that are broken and I see no update coming. I have had to babysit the recovery of a drive because dd_rhelp doesnt work and ddrescue on its own does something to the misconfigured OS causing it to barf on the sata interface after too many timeouts.

    Thanks

    In case anyone cares this USB stick installer for many flavors of linux is AWESOME http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/

    I used it to install Ubuntu and SystemRescueCD from here http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page which included gnu ddrescue
