Description ajvincens 1999-12-29 02:34:34 UTC
I have been using dump on previous Linux releases w/o a problem 2.0.32 kernel. Pentium 2 200mhz MMX, TR-3 tape drive 1. /sbin/insmod <path>zftape.o OK 2. mt -f /dev/ftape rewind or fsf or retension OK 3. tar -cvf /dev/ftape /mnt2 OK 4. dump -0ufB /dev/ftape 1638000 /mnt2 At this point I have 2 mounted partitions: / = /dev/hda3 3 gig /mnt2 = /dev/hdb2 1 gig /mnt2 contains my 2.0.32 OS. ext2 file system dump says it's backing up /dev/hdb3 to /dev/ftape and is finished w/ nothing dump'd to tape. (about 1 minute) At first I thought it was an ftape problem but I have no problem w/ mt and tar. I'm not sure why it's saying it is dumping the /dev/hda3 file system unless it isn't seeing the /mnt2 parm and is somehow defaulting to the root file system. I've tried different variations of the command dump -0 -u -f /dev/ftape etc. I've also tried loading ftape.o, but I couldn't get tar or mt to work. Let me know if you need more info, I'd be glad to provide any info you need. Thanks, Andy

What version of dump "rpm -q dump"? You might try the latest dump-0.4b11 from Raw Hide, as mamy bugs in dump have been fixed there.

HI, I'm using dump 0.4b4-11. I'll check for the new version. Thanks, Andy
Comment 3 ajvincens 1999-12-30 05:17:59 UTC
I just tried dump 0.4b11-2 w/ the same results. Seems like dump is ignoring the last parm which is the file system to be backed up. It is trying to dump my root file system, not /mnt2 With this version I get a write error 20 block also that I didn't get in version 0.4b4-11.
Comment 4 Stelian Pop 1999-12-30 10:07:59 UTC
Is /mnt2 is your fstab? Does it work if you dump directly the device (dump 0f /dev/nftape /dev/hdb2)? What tells the 'file' command applied to your (empty) dump? Stelian.
Comment 5 Stelian Pop 2000-02-10 12:25:59 UTC
I have reasons to believe this was fixed in the latest release of dump, 0.4b14 Could you try that one, available from http://dump.sourceforge.net and see if your problem persists? Stelian.
Comment 6 Jeff Johnson 2000-02-10 15:21:59 UTC
I've built dump-0.4b14 for Red Hat 6.2. Bug should be closed as soon as it's verified that the package fixes the bug.
Comment 7 Jeff Johnson 2000-03-08 20:09:59 UTC
Did dump-0.4b1 from RawHide/SourceForgefix your problem?
Comment 8 Preston Brown 2000-06-27 16:12:33 UTC
closed due to lack of additional feedback.
Comment 9 David Lawrence 2000-07-03 15:55:19 UTC
email received from user by firstname.lastname@example.org ---- I never received the email "Did dump-0.4b1 from RawHide/SourceForgefix your problem?". Sorry I wasn't sure how to close out the bug report. Yes, it did work. I believe I responded directly with Stelian. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I am very thankful for the assistance. Andy
