  • Summary changed from genisoimage: option '-e' is ambiguous to modoarchive fails if option '-e' is not supported by genisoimage / mkisofs

Mondoarchive fails on rhel5 with a similar error. In this OS release, mkisofs has no -e option yet.

Ok, I'll have to make the usage of the -e option conditional to the distribution as even among the newest such as Debian 8 it doesn't seem to be supported.

comment:3 Changed 18 months ago by bruno

Rev [3460] should fix that issue. Please test the versions at  ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/rhel/5 and  ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/debian/8

Note that the option will be used if you have a UEFI based system, so I'm unsure how Debian is planning to handle that, except if they do not support UEFI yet in version 8 which I didn't check.

RHEL 5 doesn't support UEFI so it's not an issue for it.

The test version seems to work for me on rhel5.

I didn't try a restore or even simply booting the iso image yet, but archiving completes sucessfully.

comment:5 Changed 18 months ago by loic

Also works for me with mondoarchive v3.2.220150904015359-r3461 and Debian 8.

the -e option problem is resolved, but not the invalid pointer issue, neither the following problem : whatever the reason, when mondoarchive ends with an error (example out of disk space ...), the return code "$?" is always zero, which does not allow scripts to detect the problem properly.
