Latest Mindi 2.1.7-1.fc19.x86_64 on fedora 20 x86_64

Hello Developers,

I am trying to make a mondo/mindi rescue image on Fedora Core 20
(x86_64) and the image keeps failing to boot up. I get the 
following message: 

Failed to execute/init (error -2)
kernel panic - not syncing: No working init found. Try passing init=
option to kernel. See Linux Documentation/init.txt for guidance.

I am attaching the logs for mindi, mindi with debug and mondoarchive.

I would really appreciate any help.

Regards
-Ajay Sharma

DVD ejected while backing up

Hello,

I am testing mondoarchive.  Initially it would not see the dvd in the dvd drive on the laptop.  I finally got the backup to start and it was going the all the procedures to backup and informed me I was going to need 3 dvd's to complete the job.  

After 55 mins the dvd that was not recognized popped, a series of screens pop-up, and it was searching for the media.  I popped the dvd back in and continued.  Mondoarchive says there is no media would you like to continue or abort.  

Please advise?

Mondorecover hanging at format

I backed up a CentOS 6.5 server, 64bit with mondoarchive version mondoarchive v3.0.4-r3177.   Building a
"standby" server, so I'm doing the nuke restore off of DVD.

I get to the "Formatting Partitions" screen and it just sits there at 33%, drive activity solid, but never
going past 33%.  HD's are brand new.

I've attached the mondorestore.log..any help appreciated.

HDIO_GET_IDENTIY failed

This may not be specific to mondo, however during a mondo restore, while it is trying to create the
partitions, I get "HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed" message.

It seems that the partitioning partially worked because when I use fdisk, I see that the drive has been
partitioned.  However, even in fdisk, if I drive modifying anything, I get the same message when I write changes.

Disk partitions not re-build as the original

Hi
    I restored a machine using a full backup done with  mondo-3.0.4 and 
I noticed that the disk
partitions are rebuild almost like the original ones but not exactly the 
same way as I'd expected.
While the on the original disk, the first partition started on cylinder 
2048, the first partition on the re-created disk starts on cylinder 32.
This is not good because the alignment at 2048th cylinder not only 
support EFI partition table but also improve the modern disk 
performances (there are several web pages claiming that).

Best regards

Angelo Pozzi

Sparse File support

Hi
    just a question: do mondoarchive and mondorestore have support for 
large sparse files?
I want to backup and restore files with virtual size of tenth of Gb but 
with real size of few Gb (e.g. virtual size 50Gb / real size 15Gb). When 
such files are restored their size always have the real size equal to 
the virtual size: is that possible?

This has been verified with mondo 3.0.4.

Regards

Angelo Pozzi

Multiple Bootloaders on a Single Linux Distro (GRUB + Syslinux)

Hello all,

New to the list here and I've been using Mondo for past 6 months or so.  I'm a bit new to the inner workings of Linux, and so I have a general question here about using Mondo, particular when it comes to bootloaders.  Say I'm running SLES 9 (x86) on an old server that is already configured to use GRUB as its bootloader.  I tried to install Mondo on this system but when I try to build the mindi rpm it says I'm lacking the dependency syslinux.  Will installing syslinux directly onto the server that is already configured with GRUB cause any issues to the system?  That is, will installing syslinux mean that it will only be called when I attempt to install or use Mondo and not interfere with the GRUB bootloader?  I want to make sure that adding an additional bootloader will not corrupt the existing bootloader and/or cause issues next time the system starts up.  I am aware that two bootloaders can coexist such as in Linux/Windows dual boot instances.  

My previous use and success with Mondo was on some older servers running CentOS 5.9 (also using GRUB) but Mondo was already installed.  I am assuming everything will be fine based on this past experience, but I don't like to make a conclusion based on assumptions.  Bad things usually happen :)  My apologies if this was not the correct avenue for this question, but I got some mixed responses from some of the Linux forums out there so I figured I'd go right to the source.  Thanks for you help, suggestions, and/or advice in advance!

Problem of size for my ISO

Hello,
I have got some troubles with my mondoarchive : 
I'm trying to backup a server RHEL 5.5 using mondo 3.0.4-1.rhel5 and mindi 
2.1.7-1.rhel5 (busybox 1.18.5-3.rhel5).

The command I use is :
/usr/sbin/mondoarchive -OiG -s 700m -E "/dev/drbd0|/net|/net4|/mnt" -S 
"/net4/x.x.x.x/transfert/backup/BCKSYS/X86/TEMP_MONDO/" -d 
"/net4/x.x.x.x/transfert/backup/BCKSYS/X86/LinuxImageBackup/" -N -p "$MYHOST-
$MYDATE"

I was thinking that the "-s" option would give me ISOs with a max size of 
700Mb but 3 of my 11 ISOs are bigger than 2Gb.

Have you got any idea ? Is it a wrong way to use this option ?

Thank you for your help.

Benoit
