Description Job J. van Gorkum 2000-09-30 05:43:46 EDT
When using amanda with dump (always-full) amcheck complains wth the
following error:

ERROR: localhost [can not access LABEL=/var (/var): no such file or

the /etc/amanda/test/disklist contains the following

localhost /var	always-full

also tested with:

localhost sda9	always-full
then the following error occurs:

ERROR: localhost [can not access sda9 (sda9): no such file or directory

Editing /etc/fstab and not using the new-fangled LABEL=... syntax is a
Otherwise I should have a fix pretty soon ...
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-30 17:02:09 EST
This is a problem in how glibc's getfsent work, and I think this should be fixed
rather than making a kludge in amanda ( (the "getfsent.c" file ;) and probably
other backup programs too...). Jakub, what's your opinion?
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-16 19:31:07 EST
Can you try the 2.4.2p1-1 RPMs from http://people.redhat.com/teg/ ? amcheck
seems to work now...
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2001-02-17 03:38:08 EST
I've asked on libc-hacker and the responses were getfsent should not
be kept as is.
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-02-17 11:24:27 EST
Which getfsent needs fixing? The one in glibc or the one in amanda? (which
basically calls the glibc one, but does different things on some other platforms)
Comment 6 Ulrich Drepper 2003-04-21 20:52:39 EDT
I don't have access to such an old system or glibc anymore.  The getfsent()in
the current glibc returns te label plus mount point in fs_spec.  This is what I
expect.  I also assume that amanda handles this fine these days.  Otherwise we
would have gotten more and more recent reports like this.

Please confirm.

No reply in almost 6 months.  Reopen if this is a problem in a supported product.
