#229 closed defect (fixed)

testing mondo 2.2.5 on opensuse 10.3 - could not figure out how to get compare to work

Reported by: chris_m Owned by: bruno
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.5
Component: mondo Version: 2.2.4
Severity: normal Keywords:


I ran mondo 2.2.5 on opensuse 10.3 just now - I was testing as per the note on the mondorescue website asking people to do this. I saw a message at the beginning of the archive process that I've never seen before when running mondo on various distributions, including opensuse 10.2 earlier today (mondo 2.2.4) :

Checking sanity of your Linux distribution ---promptdialogYN---1--- Your kernel has no ramdisk support. That's mind-numbingly stupid but I'll allow it if you're planning to use a failsafe kernel. Are you? ---promptdialogYN---Q--- [yes] [no] --- -->

I said "yes" at this prompt. The archive process, with verification, appeared to work correctly. I then rebooted with the first CD to run mondo "compare". The machine booted from the CD OK, however, I got a screen I've never seen before with mondo compare:

Please edit the mountlist to your satisfaction, then click OK or Cancel.

(the mountlist was empty). I didn't know what to do here, so I just clicked OK. Apparently this wasn't the correct choice, because the compare process didn't work. (opensuse 10.3 is mounted at /dev/hdb7 on the machine where the testing was done.)

I fixed bugs this morning for SuSE 10.3 in mindi as the makemountlist wasn't computed correctly. Could you retry with the version I just uploaded to and report back.

I downloaded the new versions of mindi-2.0.0-1.suse10.3.i586.rpm and mondo-2.2.5-1.suse10.3.i586.rpm. I removed the previous versions of these rpms and installed these new ones. The backup/compare run this evening was successful. This time, the compare step correctly identified the correct installation and swap partitions automatically.
