Hi Jens, why do you need bzip2 on the disk?

Jens Harms (au1064-7) said : #2

i used a usb stick with boot-repair-cd. and it successfully repaired the broken bootloader (wrong uuid). Then i tried to restore my backup'ed files from within boot-repair-cd:
>tar xf backup-home.tar.bz2

i know bzip2 is not needed for boot-repair and i could reboot with system-resuce-cd or some other distribution, but... i think linux user expect some basic tools are working and they will be surprised if those tools do not work.

ok, I will try to add it in next ISO releases.

FYI, bzip2 is now included in the last version of Boot-Repair-Disk.

Can you help with this problem?
