Q: When I compare my archives to my file system, Mondo tells me there are differences or errors. Are the archives bad?
A: Look at /tmp/changed.files; if the files are logfiles, temp files or files which you think you may have changed recently then the archives are simply out of date, albeit only by a few minutes. Not a problem. However, if lots of files in /usr have changed or if you get lots of errors then perhaps your CD, your tapes or even your hardware could be to blame. Check your CD writer or tape streamer.
Also, don't forget to review /var/log/mondo-archive.log for more information.
