Description

About 2 weeks ago this system was restored from mondo. It's regular schedule backup failed a few days ago with the following errors. The first version of mondo was 2.2.7, I updated it today to 2.2.9-1 and receive the same errors. The section about kernel being invalid did not start until the failure started. Kernel is default from RHEL 5.3.

  • Milestone changed from 2.2.9.1 to 2.2.10
  • Status changed from new to assigned

The error seems to be this one:

...od: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5: read error: Input/output error
444 	FATAL ERROR. gzip magic not found in file /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5. Terminating.

Try this please:

file /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5

I guess it's the std RH kernel right ?

It is indeed the std RH kernel. What I find most odd about this issue is we just restored this system using mondo, and post restore the backups started failing. Here's the output from the file command:

[root@jpldbmysqls1 ~]# file /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5: GLS_BINARY_LSB_FIRST

Looking for that file type in google I found:

# GLS is OpenGL stream encoding; GLS is the successor of GLF 0 string glsBeginGLS( GLS_TEXT 4 belong 0x10000000 GLS_BINARY_LSB_FIRST 4 belong 0x00000010 GLS_BINARY_MSB_FIRST

Notsure how an OpenGL file is related to the kernel. Can you check your kernel package with rpm -V kernel-... to see if no problem arrived to your file ?

  • Milestone changed from 2.2.10 to 2.2.9.7
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Your problem is different from the first author: in your case, your mindi version is obsolete compared to your mondo version. Update mindi to 2.0.7.x from ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/ubuntu/10.10
