Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-04-27 20:24:59 UTC
Can you make sure that
	1) the file system has  been fsck'd. It's not enough to
	rely on the fsck run during reboot -- you will need to run
	e2fsck with the -f flag.
	2) The file system that you are dumping is "quiet". Ideally
	dump should be run with an unmounted file system.
	3) Check /var/log/messages for disk hardware errors.

You might also try recompiling and running dump-0.4 from
rawhide.redhat.com to see whether there is a dump problem
that has been fixed already.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-04 15:49:59 UTC
Did dump-0.4 help your problem>

Comment 3 Preston Brown 2000-06-27 16:22:55 UTC
closed due to lack of feedback.  Likely user error or fixed in current release.
