    347347  If occurs "''FATAL ERROR. Your system uses a UUID partition ...install findfs|blkid|vol_id''", there is a problem between the swap and the /etc/fstab content. Even the swap maybe not used, check it through "free" command. A solution is to replace in /etc/fstab the swap UUID by the swap dev/xx (that can be found through "sudo fdisk -l"), it can be done for "local" partitions.

    355   Mindi uses "syslinux -s" to make an USB media bootable, but it fails with syslinux v 4.02 (syslinux bug).
    356   It is solved since syslinux v 4.03, but Syslinux v 4.02 is still used by Ubuntu 11.04, 10.10 and 10.04.
    357 
    358   The following error can be found in mondoarchive.log
    359 {{{
    360     syslinux: invalid option -- 's'
    361     syslinux: Unknown option: -s
    362     ...
    363     Failed to create USB image.
    364     Boot and data disk images were created.
    365 }}}
    366   Also, ldlinux.sys is missing in the root of the USB backup hard disk made by mondoarchive.
    367 
    368   A solution is to replace in mindi shell-script "syslinux -s" by "syslinux --stupid" which works well.
    369 
    370   Another solution is to run the following command after mondoarchive execution.
    371 
    372   Example, if USB device is /dev/sdb:
    373 
    374   # syslinux --stupid /dev/sdb1
