17
18--------------
19
20denymods="mod1 mod2"
21    Add those modules to the list of modules to NOT load
22
23donteject
24    mondorestore will not eject the CD; this is useful if, for instance, your PC's case has a concealed CD-ROM drive
25
26forcemods="mod1 mod2"
27    Add those modules to the list of modules to load systematically
28
29nodmraid
30    Do not try to start dmraid support
31
32nohw
33    Do not call the mindi-rsthw script which try to restore also your BIOSes configuration (Proliant only)
34
35nompath
36    Do not try to start multipath support
37
38noresize
39    Do not resize partitions using a multiplication factor of (New disk size)/(Old disk size) to use your unallocated hard disk space
40
41textonly
42    do not call any Newt library routines; this is unattractive but valuable if you find your Newt library has bugs in it or on ia64
43
44usb=/dev/xxx
45    Use that USB device name as the place to look for backup content. The way drivers are loaded may lead that to the fact you have a different device name at restore time, compared to the one you used at backup time, making mondorestore unable to use the right device natively. This helper corrects that. Pass to it the device name, not the partition name. Example: usb=/dev/sdb
