Description

Hello Mondo support,

I installed MondoRescue? 2.2.9.5 on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.2 (actually a slightly customized Red Hat distro), and I prepared a USB 1 TB external drive, and formatted it's main partition as ext3, and made sure that the system recognises it. The HDD in question is properly mounted as /media/Linux-HDD. The original device name is /dev/sdc1. After I select the Hard Disk option and I point to /media/Linux-HDD, I am able to enter most of the requested information. When I reach the "What to backup" dialog box, and I choose the default "/" to back it all, I don't reach the excluded directories box. MondoArchive? gives me a segmentation fault error. The mondoarchive.log file finishes with the following:

============ running: mindi -V > /media/Linux-HDD/mondo.tmp.cDtShm/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp 2> /media/Linux-HDD/mondo.tmp.cDtShm/mondo-run-prog-thing.err

...ran with res=256 Done. User has chosen not to backup the PC running: umount /mnt/cdrom > /media/Linux-HDD/mondo.tmp.cDtShm/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp 2> /media/Linux-HDD/mondo.tmp.cDtShm/mondo-run-prog-thing.err

The Linux system specs are: Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Carthage) Kernel 2.6.18-92.el5xen on an x86_64

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Regards, Salim Karam

Dear Mondo Support,

Any clue on this issue? I prefer not to use an offline cloning solution which is OS-independent (like Clonezilla), because I will have to do the backup operation during offline time, and in front of the console! I'd appreciate it if you can provide a working alternative, and I'll be ready to provide additionnal information if required.

Regards, Salim Karam

There is a known issue with the Curses interface with that version. It has been fixed in beta for next version. Could you try the packages available at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/rhel/5/x86_64/ ?

Dear Bruno,

Thanks for the reply. Just in order for me to do it right:

1- Do I have to uninstall the older packages if I want to install the new ones?

2- Which packages do I need to install from the list below?

Yes
