#378 assigned defect

making mondo archives from a live USB

Reported by: irfank Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 4.0.2
Component: mondo Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


I'm having troubles running Mondoarchive and Mindi on Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit using either versions from the repositories or versions from the website. I gather I could recompile a kernel to get it running, as I keep getting a FATAL ERROR: Libata module not found message. I suppose I could also find a version of the mindi-kernel to try to use the failsafe kernel, but it's not readily available without a lot of digging and searching.

Right now, I'm figuring that it might just be easier to install a different, earlier version of Ubuntu on a separate partition, for the sole purpose of making mondoarchives. I can't see why this won't work.

But it occurred to me that it might be possible to make a live USB Mondo Rescue linux version, which would allow people with insane kernels to make backups readily. I searched around through versions of DSL and others to see if this was something that had been done before, but couldn't find anything.

Can anyone see any major problems with this approach? I'm a relative newbie with big gaps in my general knowledge, although not scared of reading howtos or using the command line if that seems the easiest way to do something.

Thanks for any input that anyone can provide.

That request has already been covered in #40.

However, if you want to detail your issues so that I could help solving them, I'd need your /var/log/mondoarchive.log file.
