Blink

Treah's picture

Unable to locate this blink program....
One of the main issues of this program is that it has such a generic name. There was a kernel driver by this name that was removed because it was buggy and problematic. I however am not using a distro so maybe the programs is listed somewhere in a respoistory but a google search turns up no sources or anything for it. If anyone is following this article maybe you can post sources for it or post a location for the sources. If nothing gets posted I may consider writing something small in c if its even possible.

blink?

I'm using fedora 12, but I can't seem to find blink in any packages.
Any suggestions?

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
