Description

Mondo fails to create second ISO during backup with the following error:

File ./archives/5.afio.bz2 is larger than 4GiB-1. -allow-limited-size was not specified. There is no way do represent this file size. Aborting.

[Main] libmondo-fork.c->run_prog_in_bkgd_then_exit#632: child res = 256

[Main] libmondo-fork.c->run_external_binary_with_percentage_indicator_NEW#704: Parent res = 256

Call to mkisofs to make ISO (ISO #2) ...failed [Main] libmondo-archive.c->make_iso_fs#1994: WARNING - make_iso_fs returned an error [Main] newt-specific.c->fatal_error#329: Fatal error received - 'FAILED TO BACKUP'

Whilst troubleshooting the issue I found an online thread suggesting another user was having the exact same issue and was also using CentOS 6.5 so this may be an issue unique to this distro. I have tried various options to resolve this (including but not limited to changing the ISO size) but the backup fails at the exact same point every time. Log attached.

I wonder whether your disk has a sparse file added to the 5th afio file causing that issue. Afio doesn't support sparse file correctly, but star does. Could you try by using the option -R ?
