|MondoRescue HOWTO: Utilisation and Configuration of Mondo and Mindi under Linux (Version 3.2.2-r3578)|
|Chapter 10. FAQ|
A: Yes. Just backup your system in Interactive Mode using Mondo. Edit the mountlist when prompted.
A: Restore in Interactive Mode. Delete the SCSI drive from the mountlist before you restore. Then Mondo won't try to partition or format it. Next time you backup, use -E /dev/sdd (or whatever your zip drive is). The /dev entry will be excluded from the mountlist but not from the filelist. So, when you restore, you won't accidentally reformat your zip disk. However, after restoring, you will find that /dev/sdd (the _file_) will still be present in your /dev directory. Cool, eh?
A: It usually means either you had a very large (>2GB) file which was not archived owing to a flaw in your distro or your filesystem has changed in relation to the backup.
A: Mondo creates a 10MB journal file area. Your journal was probably smaller than that, hence the difference.
A: It sounds as if you are running out of disk space, probably ram disk space. Type 'df -m' to see which partitions are running low on space. Please send as much information as you can to the mondorescue mailing list. This problem is believed to have been fixed in 1.63 and 1.71.
