AIR (Automated Image and Restore) is a
GUI front-end to
dcfldd designed for easily creating forensic bit
images. Or, a nice way to let the guys at work who like GUIs make Debian boot
install floppies (don’t ask) easily. Ubuntu 7.10 doesn’t have a package for AIR, but
AIR does have an installer.
sudo aptitude install perl-tk sharutils dcfldd netcat cryptcat wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/air-imager/air-1.2.8.tar.gz?download tar zxvf air-1.2.8.tar.gz cd air-1.2.8/ sudo ./install-air-1.2.8
At this point the installer thingy will kick off, follow the prompts. I have found that ‘air’ needs to run as root, but won’t run if the executable is setuid. So use…
…to run it.
