Review: Trinity Rescue Kit 3.2

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

Linux distributions meant to be used as systems administrator utilities often have a special place in the heart of those who have been saved by their usefulness. In my line of work I have found them useful from time to time myself. On my SystemRescueCd review, a reader named Dave recommended checking out Trinity Rescue Kit. So, I decided to give it a try.

Meant to be a utility to help recover your system in the event of a problem, Trinity Rescue Kit focuses mainly on those pesky Windows PCs that from time to time have problems. Of course no OS is without its problems so it is equally useful on Linux PCs.

I downloaded Trinity Rescue Kit 3.2 build 279 from the website and burned it to a CD. I booted it up and it provided 20 different boot options from the live CD including ones such as:

with proxyserver support enabled
running from RAM
with bigger screenfont
in simple VGA mode (debugging of kernel output)
with Belgian keyboard
Virusscan all drives (non interactive)
with a SSH server enabled
fileshare all drives, both secured as user and as guest with no security
with ACPI off
and more…

Full Story.
