ALT Linux is a set of RPM-based, APT-managed operating systems built on top of the Linux kernel and Sisyphus package repository branches.
ALT Linux Rescue is a moderate sized LiveCD distribution that is designed to help sysadmins fix and repair many kinds of problems with systems they are or feel responsible for; so it comes with tools aiding to:
- perform hardware diagnostics - resize partitions - fix bootloaders, partitions, filesystems - recover partitions and files deleted by accident - backup and restore to network servers - deal with optical, tape and file archives - optimize filesystem usage - diagnose network problems and remote services - wipe partitons or drives clean of residual information - investigate unauthorized access/security breach events
All of that is packaged into a convenient hybrid ISO image file suitable for both CD/DVD media and USB Flash pendrives. The resulting media should be bootable on most x86 systems, even with SecureBoot. It's available for some non-x86 arches as well.
