|MondoRescue HOWTO: Utilisation and Configuration of Mondo and Mindi under Linux (Version 3.2.2-r3578)|
|Chapter 10. FAQ|
A: Look at /var/log/mindi.log and see what it says. Also, try typing 'mindi --makemountlist /tmp/mountlist.txt' to see what Mindi says. Send the log to the mondorescue mailing list if you get stuck.
A: Yes. Use the '-Oc <speed>' switch. Use a negative number for a dummy burn.
A: Cdrecord reported some serious errors while trying to burn your CD. Check your CD burner, your CD-R and your kernel.
A: Yes. Boot in Interactive Mode and edit the mountlist using the snazzy new mountlist editor. Mondo can now edit your RAID partitions for you. Just open /dev/md0 (or whatever) and select "RAID.." to start. Or, to add a RAID device:
Add two or more partitions, of type and mountpoint 'raid'
Add device '/dev/md0' and click OK
Follow the prompts and your own common-sense :)
A: Because it need space to create the archive files with afio, then again space to create the ISO images that you'll be able to burn.
A: Well, (a) use '-T /tmp' or '-T /home' or something in your call to Mondo. Oh, and (b) check the /etc/exports file on your NFS server and verify the exported filesystem is writable for the client, and relaunch exportfs -a.
A: Yes. Just backup as usual but add '-d /mnt/nfs' or wherever your partition is mounted; don't use '-Oc' or '-Ot' at all; just '-Oi -d /root'. Then, after booting from the media which Mondo generates, you need to type 'ISO' at the console.
