Description

Context : Mindi v2.0.7.8

I succeeded to mondoarchive a Ubuntu 11.04 on a mounted USB hard disk

(mondoarchive -Oi -G -9 -d /media/4FD0-1A9E/backup-ubuntu11.04 ...)

But when I tried to mondoarchive a Ubuntu 11.04 on the same external USB hard disk, but not mounted (mondoarchive -OU -d/dev/sdb -G ....)

It failed with:

Mindi failed to create your boot+data disks. Fatal error... Failed to generate boot+data disks

I got in mondoarchive.log:

Kernel size = 4428 K Ramdisk free = 3290 K Sorry, your kernel is too big for your image FATAL ERROR...

SOLUTION

I increased BOOT_SIZE (BOOT_SIZE=36864 instead of BOOT_SIZE=32768) in /usr/sbin/mindi and it solved the problem, I succeeded to mondoarchive Ubuntu 11.04 on the USB hard disk.
