Hi,
find attached ebuild for partclone tool.

http://partclone.org

Partclone is a program similar to the well-known backup utility "Partition Image" a.k.a partimage. Partclone provides utilities to save and restore used blocks on a partition and is designed for higher compatibility of the file system by using existing libraries, e.g. e2fslibs is used to read and write the ext2 partition.

Also in my overlay:

Open to suggestion ;)

Cheers

proposed updated ebuild

I cleaned up the ebuild at the url in comment #2, and updated for the latest upstream release.

I'm not really an ebuild expert, though, so please let me know if I missed anything

proposed updated ebuild

oops, the configure script of partclone is doing weird things when it gets --disable-foo (it treats either --enable-foo or --disable-foo as enabling foo).

Will upload another patch when i figure it out

Would be nice to see this in portage, maybe try a github pull request.

*** Bug 641472 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 11 Stefan Kalis 2019-02-02 12:51:03 UTC
Yes - I think addition to Portage would be good since Partclone gained more users through Clonezilla which is using it as the standard.
