mondo rescue will not burn a cd or dvd in hardy

Hi,

after 2 weeks of trying I still can't get mondo to burn to a cd/dvd.  It
goes right the way through until it finds a fatal error when time comes
to burn the CD/DVD.
Any help would be appreciated.

I found messages in your log. You maight assign a wrong device when bruning ISO image to CD.
Try cdrecord -scanbus to find the correct device.

How am I fooling Mondo?


I'm using mondo to do full and differential backups.  It works great.
But, the day after I do a full backup my differential backup is over
3GB, and it seems odd that my system would have that many changed files
within one day.  I looked at

    .../mondo.scratch.5973/mondo.scratch.31497/archives/filelist.full.gz

and one file inside that is

    /home/dummy/Pictures/p4180442.jpg

Listing the times on that file I get

    # ls -lu p4180442.jpg
    -r--r--r-- 1 dummy stupid 401408 Mar 17 23:02 p4180442.jpg

    # ls -lt p4180442.jpg
    -r--r--r-- 1 dummy stupid 401408 Jun 29  2005 p4180442.jpg

I haven't done anything to the file by hand in quite a while.  The 2005
year seems about right.  As for the access time (ls -lu) ... I think
that was probably when mondo read the file to create the full backup.
But it was in last night's (3/31/09) list of files to be backed up in
the differential backup.

My supposition is that some process(es) on my system might be changing
time-stamps in some way that mondo watches.  I've looked through my cron
stuff.  I have some jobs that look for things like files matching ,*
older than a week, and removing those, etc.  I'm almost ready to rule

Hopefully fixed in more recent versions. Please look at

Thanks for any pointers or help – I’d guess that it is simple but I don’t know how to pursue!

Stop using the fail safe kernel.  It should work fine (better) using
your real kernel.

Re: (no subject)

OK. I did that, and it got past that error.

I had used that option since the MondoRescue man page says:
     If you are a Debian or Gentoo user then specify -k FAILSAFE as your
kernel.

–––––––––––––––––-
But now it calls mindi, and then hangs.

I did read at the mondo site that one can test mindi separately. I tried
that, and it runs fine until the "Droppping Libraries" part, and then hangs.
If I interrupt it, the log doesn't show anything useful except "user
aborted".

Seems like this is now the problem.

Re: (no subject)

Best include that log anyway.

IIRC, there was a recent thread here that suggested it hangs  
somewhere for about 3 minutes
before continuing on Debian - perhaps gmane/google can dig that up  
for you.
