Rear includes backup archive in the rescue CD ISO image
Previously, Relax-and-Recover (ReaR) did not include the backup archive in the rescue CD ISO image when run on the IBM Power Systems architecture. As a consequence, rescue CDs could not be used for restoring the system when the internal backup method was used. This update adds the backup archive into the rescue CD ISO image. As a result, rescue CDs can now be used to restore the system with internal backup method.
Description of problem:
It appears that there is no code in /usr/share/rear/output/ISO/Linux-ppc64le/ ana /usr/share/rear/output/ISO/Linux-ppc64/ to include the backup in the ISO, when using the following configuration:
Also, the code used to split DVDs is not present.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure rear as shown above
2. Create backup: "rear mkbackup"
3. Check resulting ISO
No OS/backup.tar.gz file in the ISO
The code has been integrated into rear-2.2
