    Does anyone know if you can use fog to image linux (ubuntu) machines?

    I want to make a complete clone of our moodle box so I can work on it without worries.
    However I'm not sure if i can use FOG to do this.
    Has anyone done this yet and if so which image type did you use?

    Thanks

    It should work fine as far as I know. A multi-partition image should do it I think. There's a bit about Linux clients here - Client Setup - FOGProject Wiki

    However, if Fog doesn't manage it, Clonezilla would handle it.

    Thanks, I couldn't find that even though I'd seen it before.

    I have clonezilla on standby as well.

    Did you use multi partition single disk?
    I'm about to give it a try!

    Fog won't image an ext4 partition because partimage doesn't work with ext4 (multiple sources).

    That means Ubuntu 9.10 onwards (according to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases) fwiw.
