#424 closed defect (fixed)

"Can't access tty..." error on Mondo restore

Reported by: casey0999 Owned by: victor gattegno
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: mondo Version:
Severity: normal Keywords: tty



Running MondoRescue V2.2.9.3-r2622. My system is Fedora Core 12 (2.6.32 kernel) on an IBM System x3650 M2. This is a clean system just built, and I wanted to test backup and restore to an identical machine.

I used Mondo to back the system up to 2 CD's, and this seemed to go fine, but upon restoral ("nuke") to an identical system, the bootable CD boots up, starts Linux, and then stops with the error: "can't access tty; job control turned off"

Please advise - this is similar to what was happening in Ticket 256.

Thanks Scott S

I propose the following solution.

In mindi-busybox-1.7.3/include/usage.h, replacement of:

" ::askfirst:/bin/sh\n" \


" ::askfirst:/bin/cttyhack /bin/sh\n" \

According to the modified usage.h file, we should modify mindi-busybox-1.7.3/include/init to generate

::askfirst:/bin/cttyhack /bin/sh

instead of

Replying to vicgat: mindi-busybox-1.7.3/include/init.c, of course.

maybe I should look at this possibility as well

Should be fixed with latest mindi-busybox 1.18.3

BTW the initial problem is probably linked to a driver issue missing, which has probably been fixed in between. Reopen if still valid.
