Description

There seem to be errors EARLY on during boot img creation. Perhaps a kernel udev issue??

This is Fedora 8 2.6.23.9-85.fc8 Mindi v2.0.0-r1846 mondoarchive v2.2.5-r1846

Could you please test with the latest beta available, as it should be fixed now. Cf: ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/fedora/8/test Please report back here what you find.

I am experiencing the same issue. I have installed the following rpm's on a redhat es4 environment. I upgraded to try and resolve issue #172

mindi-2.0.0-1.rhel4.i386.rpm mindi-busybox-1.7.3-1.rhel4.i386.rpm mondo-2.2.5-1.rhel4.i386.rpm

Here is the tail of the /var/log/mondoarchive.log

Since this issue might take a while to resolve, I am wondering if moving to an older version of mindi or mondo might help. If so, which one might be the best to try. Any help appreciated.

  • Keywords fedora 8 mkisofs added

[root@localhost ~]# mindi -v Mindi v2.0.0-r1883

[root@localhost ~]# mondoarchive -V mondoarchive v2.2.5-r1883

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa|egrep -i "mindi|mondo"

mindi-busybox-1.7.3-1.fc8

mindi-2.0.0-1.fc8

mondo-2.2.5-1.fc8

[root@localhost ~]# uname -a

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.23.15-137.fc8 #1 SMP Sun Feb 10 17:48:34 EST 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I find the same issue as before with the TEST rpm.s

mkisofs just dies.

It adds 50-52 sets to the ISO and when mkisofs is called to write the ISO image ALL stops

I have listed the rpm/versions and kernel above.

:(

I dont want to have to use backupc.. mondo is WAY better!

  • Milestone changed from 2.2.5 to 2.2.6

comment:6 Changed 12 years ago by ivanbishop

I am using an old version and it is working.


#define PPCFG_RAMDISK_SIZE 850 was altered in my-stuff.h, 350 was too small. This is a 2G machine and the ISO size is set to 700M

versions are
Mindi v1.2.4-r1532
BusyBox? v1.2.2
mondoarchive v2.2.4-1532


fedora 8
kernel 2.6.24.3-34.fc8


Will try new version in 2.2.6 Bruno. Thanks
