Description jago25_98 2002-08-24 00:41:22 UTC
sys-apps/mondo-rescue - (Backup and restore from bootable CD you've made)


- rd.o 
- ramfs.o
- fat.o
- dos.o ?
- vfat.o
- (mindi - helps create the boot rescue disks)
- no paths with the name "*cdrom*" can be mounted or mondoarchive will fail to load.

 Ramfs.o does not appear to be available under kernel 2.4.19 unlike kernel
2.4.18., not in the menuconfig menus.
 However, there is an entry for ramfs.o listed in the .config for 2.4.19. 

 Complete kernel lockups experienced with 2.4.18preemt kernel. Suggest turning
off Premption to be sure this is not the problem.

Mondo Archive v1.44 ---

kernel config available. Would try pasting here but I'm having trouble with
jedit and nedit.

Comment 1 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-09-02 22:28:20 UTC
probably have to wait for an updated version of mondo-rescue from upstream for
this one, be patient.
Comment 2 Andreas Kotowicz 2002-09-08 08:21:53 UTC
did you compile "RAM disk suppert" INTO your kernel? mondo/mindi issues are
usually kernel config related.

anyhow, I'll make new ebuilds soon.
Comment 3 jago25_98 2002-09-09 11:03:42 UTC
the rd.o module is ramdisk support and ramfs uses this. These modules loaded, 

 What I may now try to do is use a kernel from my debian system to see if it's 
kernel related.
Comment 4 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-23 16:27:35 UTC
hrm, committed a new unstable version of this to portage today, does it fix your
Comment 5 mark newman 2002-10-24 11:22:31 UTC
could you post the exact comand you are using for mondo. To backup to cd I  would use mondoarchive -Oc 2 -d 0,2,0 -k /root/backup/mondokernel -g -F -o Note the -d 0,2,0 is dependent on your cdr s address.  I use a custom kernel for mondo's boot disk, one without DEVFS since this has caused me probs in the past, although the latest mondo code may have resolved this YMMV. 
Comment 6 Brandon Low (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-17 11:32:16 UTC
Please test this with the latest unstable profile of mondo-rescue and mindi, it
has many fixages.  If this is still an issue of course un-fix the bug.
