mindi cannot handle /lib as symlink in Fedora 17

Description

This has been mentioned a few times by people, but there doesn't seem to be a ticket for it nor any fix that I can find. I tried manually patching in changeset 3041 but that is only about /sbin and /bin. Error is:

FATAL ERROR. Cannot copy /lib to /home/mondo.tmp.wujMtk/bigdir - did you run out of disk space?

I have not run out of disk space. I also have the fix to my mind.conf as follows:

EXTRA_SPACE=120000 # increase if you run out of ramdisk space BOOT_SIZE=65600 # size of the boot disk

I attach the mindi.log file.

mindi version = 2.1.3-1 mondo version = 3.0.2-1

Should mention that /lib is a symlink to /usr/lib

  • Priority changed from normal to highest
  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Severity changed from normal to blocker

rev [3061] should help fixing this issue. Please use the test versions available at  ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/fedora/17 and report whether this is sufficient or not. If not, please include again the log file.

Unfortunately it didn't fix it. I'll attach the latest mondo and mindi logs.

By the way, I think it's unrelated but I do get a message on screen stating "sh3 grub: command not found" when mindi is running.

Disk space is definitely not an issue:

df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on rootfs 50G 14G 34G 28% / devtmpfs 739M 0 739M 0% /dev tmpfs 748M 0 748M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 748M 25M 724M 4% /run /dev/mapper/vg_linserver-lv_root 50G 14G 34G 28% / tmpfs 748M 0 748M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 748M 0 748M 0% /media /dev/sda1 485M 93M 367M 21% /boot /dev/mapper/vg_linserver-lv_home 99G 308M 94G 1% /home

The command I'm using to run mondo:

mondoarchive -OVid '/net/timecapsule/linserver' -E '/net|/var/www/html/videos' -3G -s 4480m -g

If I use -W it works fine as I skip the mindi part, but it's not an option I want to use

Replying to jpeaks:

This is odd as mindi doesn't call grub at all :-( I wonder where that sh3 comes from as well.

I have a new beta available. It may present some improvements, but doesn't fix all the issues.

comment:6 Changed 20 months ago by jpeaks

I tried the latest versions - mindi.i386 0:2.1.420121120171707-0.fc17 mondo.i386 0:3.0.320121120171707-0.fc17

Unfortunately the error message is exactly the same

  • Severity changed from blocker to critical

I got a report that the latest stable version works for Fedora 17 correctly, however, that mindi takes 50 minutes to perform its taks which is way too much. So this bug report is changing nature (removing blocker) but still to be solved more effectively.

Confirmed as well with mindi 2.1.5

comment:9 Changed 12 months ago by bruno

I can confirm that my new Mageia 3 exhibit exactly the same issue with my current beta of mindi 2.1.6 (and also has /lib redirected to /usr/lib), so I should be able to fix it a bit more easily.

comment:10 Changed 12 months ago by bruno

Should be greatly improved with rev [3166]. With this rev, mindi works for Mageia 3.

I'll regenrate packages based on this to get feedback.

comment:11 Changed 4 months ago by bruno

Version 3.2 will be the one to fix symlink support in Fedora 17-20. Beta is still not fully operational to be tested. I'll update once I have working packages later this week.

comment:12 Changed 2 weeks ago by bruno

  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Milestone changed from 3.0.5 to 3.2.0

The latest beta of 20140627 is fixing this issue on my side. Feel free to reopen if you still have problems.
