Hi Bruno.

Thanks for those pointers.

I’ll remove the out of date version and install mondo 3.2.0

The other question is this:

Can I create a bootable Mondo recovery CD/DVD disk without the data archives on it. Then create
non-bootable data backup iso’s later?

This is to allow me to boot from a non-xen DVD disk, and when booted up restore the machine from backups kept on

mondorescue not restoring big files


I recently migrated a system from non-LVM to LVM using mondo rescue.

For the most part, it worked. What I know didn’t work was the rebuilding of big files.

Log files say:

mondorestore.log:DBG1: [Main] mondorestore.c->restore_a_biggiefile_from_CD#1061: DEFINITELY

But, /var/lib/rpm/Packages definitely failed to get recreated. I had to restore it from tape. As for the

Issue with mondo on Centos 6.5?

Hi,

Running the latest (I think) versions;

perl-MondoRescue-3.2.0-1.rhel6.noarch
[root <at> c3po yum.repos.d]#

Just getting back around to archiving my systems with Mondo having
converted from Fedora to Centos. So, fresh install of Mondo and the tools
and I'm unable to do a backup. It fails right when Mindi is supposed to

FATAL ERROR. PBDI isolinux - cannot find FAILSAFE kernel

Hi all.

I have installed Mondo Rescue on a laptop running openSUSE 12.3 with all security updates applied.

The installed mondo packages are:

 


Plus a few others from the openSUSE repository such as newt and binutils and wodim.

I have tried to use the failsafe kernel option by calling mondo with the following bash script:


The  #!/bin/bash line is at the top of the file :)

When I run the test script I get this in the mindi log:

FATAL ERROR. PBDI isolinux - cannot find FAILSAFE kernel
Please e-mail a copy of /var/log/mindi.log to the mailing list.
See http://www.mondorescue.org for more information.
WE CANNOT HELP unless you enclose that file.

Is there a missing package with the FAILSAFE kernel I need to install please?

Kindest Regards,

Keith Roberts

MondoRescue IBM Power

Hello:

He was happily compiling MondoRescue for Power... all packages compiled 
OK, but when I tried to install mondo one depence fails... syslinux.

I these moment... I remembered that Power doesnt support syslinux... Is 
syslinux used when you indicate that mondorescue must use Grub?

Can mindi boot in Power processors?

Thanks

Re: Segmentation error running mondoarchive v3.2.0-r3332

Hi Bruno,

I just would like to know if you got my latest email I sent at your
email adress ( <at> hp) as I had some issues to send it to mondo-devel list
(mondoarchive log size ~ 1Mo+).
This concerns some tries I did as I promised with mondo
3.2.020150213052601 debian packages.

Don't worry, I'm not trying to put the pressure on you and I know you're
very busy. I'm not personnaly in hurry neither but I would like to be
sure my email reached your box ;D

Kind regards

Hi Bruno.

Thanks for that info.

I’m reading up on the man pages right now and writing a bash script to call mondo with the said parameters.

I was just wondering if there was an option when running mondoarchive without any parameters for the newt
interface to allow the user
to specify the path to their chosen kernel please?

If not could this be added easily please in the next mondo version?

Kind Regards,

Keith

OK.

That’s appears to be what the problem was.

Having created a mindi test iso with the standard suse desktop kernel (3.7.10-1.45-desktop) running, the
relevant modules are then loaded when I boot from the mindi.iso DVD and the CD-ROM/DVD drive is now accessible.

I now need to get mindi & mondo to build a bootable DVD disk using the xen kernel with the correct xen kernel modules.

Is there a way to pass the kernel path to Mondoarchive when using the newt interface?

Kind Regards,

Keith

I think the problem is with mindi not being able to find the correct kernel.

I’m making a xen kernel host backup, but it looks like and mindi might be trying to use the standard desktop
kernel modules it found under /boot/vmlinuz.

That symlink is found by mindi under /boot/vmlinuz - which points the the standard desktop kernel.

I’m looking into this right now.

Kind Regards,

Keith

When I boot from the mondo rescue DVD there seems to be a lot of messages about missing kernel modules, and
