     342  '''syslinux bug'''[[BR]]
     343
     344  Mindi uses "syslinux -s" to make an USB media bootable, but it fails with syslinux v 4.02 (syslinux bug).
     345  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.
     346
     347  The following error can be found in mondoarchive.log
     348{{{
     349    syslinux: invalid option -- 's'
     350    syslinux: Unknown option: -s
     351    ...
     352    Failed to create USB image.
     353    Boot and data disk images were created.
     354}}}
     355  Also, ldlinux.sys is missing in the root of the USB backup hard disk made by mondoarchive.
     356
     357  A solution is to replace in mindi shell-script "syslinux -s" by "syslinux --stupid" which works well.
     358
     359  Another solution is to run the following command after mondoarchive execution.
     360
     361  Example, if USB device is /dev/sdb:
     362
     363  # syslinux --stupid /dev/sdb1
