    296296== Q11/ Does mondo work with Debian/Ubuntu distributions? ==
    297   Yes, your best bet are the official Debian packages. Andree, the Debian maintainer, is usually also on the mailing list. Look at DistributionPackaging
     297  Yes, it does.

     301  Your best bet are the official Debian packages. Andree, the Debian maintainer, is usually also on the mailing list. Look at DistributionPackaging
    298302  If you want to use the packages made upstream for Debian/Ubuntu, you need to know that numbering schema are different between upstream mondo (2.x.y) and Debian packages (2.xy),so you should adapt your /etc/apt/preferences file to avoid updates of mondo with apt-get with indeed older versions. Do the following:

    316318
    317   After that apt-get configuration modification, execute "sudo apt-get update", launch Synaptic, and select "mondo" in order to install the latest version of Mondorescue and its dependencies.
    318 
    319319  If you are using Debian rather than Ubuntu then alter the first line above to read:
    320320{{{
    321321wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/debian/`cat /etc/debian_version`/mondorescue.sources.list
    322322}}}
    323   Also be sure on recent Ubuntu versions (8.04+) to use the -S and -T switch to locate temp files in a sufficiently big enough file system (by default /var/run is used, which seems to cause problems to Ubuntu users).
     323
     324  After that apt-get configuration modification, execute "sudo apt-get update", launch Synaptics, and select "mondo" in order to install the latest version of Mondorescue and its dependencies.
     325
     326  If the Ubuntu update manager still notify that update to "a new" 2.24 Mondorescue Debian version is available, launch Synaptics, select "Package" menu, choose "Force Version", then select the version from ftp.mondorescue.org instead of the 2.24 one.

     328  '''Mondoarchive Options (switches) advises'''[[BR]]
     329
     330  Be sure, on recent Ubuntu versions (8.04+), to use the -S and -T switch to locate temp files in a sufficiently big enough file system ; by default /var/run is used and seems to cause problems on Ubuntu (on which /var/run default size is 500 Mo).
     331
     332  If switch -L causes mondoarchive segmentation fault, simply don't use that switch, then you'll use bzip2 instead of lzo compression engine.
     333
     334  '''Swap UUID problem'''[[BR]]
     335
     336  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.
