#288 closed defect (fixed)

mindi --makemountlist fails on /etc/fstab with multiple (identical device) entries

Reported by: bwiberg Owned by: bruno
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.9
Component: mindi Version: 2.2.7
Severity: normal Keywords:

Description

Multiple entries in /etc/fstab, where the device name (e.g. server/share) is identical, although the mount points for the two mounts differ, yield an error when calculating the partition size in SizeOfPartition?() of mindi.

Multiple entries may occur e.g. for CIFS if mounting the same share as different users on different mount points.

Attaching suggested patch which assumes that all mounts of a device share a common amount of free space (however, is this true in the case of quotas on shares?).

  • Version 2.2.6 deleted

Suggested patch is not sufficient; generated mount list will repeat first entry (duplicate mount points). Need a better way to distinguish the fstab lines...

It seems fixed for me on a similar configuration as yours with latest mindi 2.0.7. Let me know for which distribution you'd like packages so that you could test it.

I'm using Debian 5.0 (repositories deb ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/debian 5.0 contrib, deb-src ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/debian 5.0 contrib) so Debian 5.0 .deb packages would be great. Thanks in advance!

(Currently I'm using mondo 2.2.9, mindi 2.0.7 and mindi-busybox 1.7.3-1. By the way, mondo-doc does not appear to be available at all from the repository?)

I installed the two .debs as asked (same version numbers but newer packages?), adjusted /etc/fstab to include the two "similar" mounts, and ran mondoarchive, but it sill bombs, and mindi shows:

Using your fstab (that's the only one I can simulate) and with my latest mindi version, I get:

So could you retry again with the new one I just made, and if it still fails, could you edit the /usr/sbin/mindi script and add set -x at the begining, and attach again the resulting logs, which should be more detailed then.

TIA.

I have installed the new versions now, but it still fails.

I'll attach mindi.txt which is the result of:

mindi --makemountlist /tmp/2 2>&1 | tee ~/mindi.txt

...where mindi has "set -x" in it, and /var/log/mindi.log, as well as /etc/fstab. I have replaced the passwords but can assure you that they do not contain any umlaut or special characters.

I also tried unsetting and exporting (empty) LANG, LC_ALL and LC_CTYPE but that did not change anything.

Thanks for your help ! I think I've found where the issue was. I made the following change [2448] and regenerated 2 new packages (same place, same name)

Yes, you're right. It shouldn't give that output. In fact, CIFS mounts should not even be analyzed for the mountlist, as they are just mounted. So they are now excluded (as were NFS mounts) in rev [2452].

I'll provide packages later on, as I was already re-building for another beta round.

OK, thanks, please let me know as soon as the packages are ready and I'll be happy to try them!
