Original Lifedrive OS files

Does anyone have a copy of the original Lifedrive OS files?

I have been messing about for a few months with trying to get Linux to work on mine (using all the great help on here as a guest) but do not seem to be getting anywhere.

Unfortunately the HDD on my PC that I had my backup copy on just died and I need to get a copy of the LD files so that I have a reference point to return to when things go wrong.

Don't be so

Well the links to unpdb.py

Well the links to unpdb.py etc arn't working anymore.
Are there any mirrors?

I have everything I need to

I have everything I need to perform this upgrade, but the linux commands do not seem to work. The Git repositories seem to have been moved and some of the commands do not work. I am relatively new to Linux commands but am learning fast. Does anyone have any knowledge re this, and in particular how I get the automated script detailed below to work. Any advice would be appreciated


git clone http://git.hackndev.com/hackndev/modrom.git
cd modrom

Hello mackem.alan, I am the

Hello mackem.alan,

I am the one who wrote modrom.git, so I'm sorry for not testing the generic part of the script as thoroughly. If you ran git clone again (on git://git.hackndev.com/hackndev/modrom.git) or if you already have it you can run "git pull" inside the repo. It should work at that point.

thanks Fahhem, does that

thanks Fahhem, does that mean that the command I type will be:-
git clone git://git.hackndev.com/hackndev/modrom.git

Sorry, whilst I can run linux commands in terminal, I am certainly no expert. How would I run 'git pull' inside the repo?
Thanks for your help by the way.

when you do "git clone

when you do "git clone <...>" a folder (local repo) is created. inside that folder you can execute "git pull" to refresh contents

Thanks Fahhem, I retried it

I pinged Farcaller. Try tomorrow.

thanks I have got so far


I have got so far with the files manually, but when I try to do the unpdb.py script, allthe links to the repository for it are broken. The same applies to the makecafe script, so I am thinking the repositories have moved?

Thanks for helping
