Milestone: 2.2.1

Dear all,

I was using Mondo back in year 2000 on RedHat? 8 and think it is an excellent backup program.However,I have many troubles using it on Slackware 10.2.

As you may know,RedHat? is using RPM as package management which mondo also use RPM.In Slackware 10.2,there are no RPM but slackware package.As a result,I have to compile all the program which mindi and mondo will use.Worse still,after I follow the software requirement list on mondorescue website,the program still complains that I did not install related packages.My question is:

  1. *What can I do to install mondorescue easily on Slackware 10.2/11?*
  2. *What's the complete software list which I have to install alongside with mindi and mondo besides the list on website?*

Your reply is appreciated.

Sorry, I've had no time to look at creating proper packages for Slackware. If you're ready to help here, I can integrate those packages in the SVN tree and produce them regularly. That would be the easiest way for you. Let me know. My build environement is already able to produce packages not only for RPM based distros but also for debian and gentoo. Adding Slack was planned be never done.

Well I always found it was NOT necessary in theory to have them, but the current code check that :-( You need cdrecord or growisofs, syslinux (this one should be added to the Web site) and mindi-busybox, instead of busybox. And of course as said afio, ntfsclone (if usin a winxx partition).

Hope this helps.

Dear all and trac,

Thanks for your reply.

Firstly,if I can provide any help on building a mondorescue package which
contains all the dependencies on slackware,I will do it if time allowed.

Secondly,especially on slackware using package,you really have hard time
when installing mondorescue because there are many
dependencies-->"Headache".As a result,building a slackware package for
mondorescue will solve the problem completely.

Well,I have to dive in and do much more research on what should I need to
build mondorescue now.

Could you look under ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/slackware/10.2 for slackware packages ? This is my first try, and no dependencies are managed for the moment. Will be part of future releases.

Hope this helps. Correct as of rev [1027]
