RFE: teach dump/restore about ext4
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:39:36 EDT
dump/restore won't open an ext4 filesystem. Need to investigate what all it'll
take to properly support ext4 in dump/restore.
[root@inode ~]# dump -f /mnt/foo/mydump /mnt/test
DUMP: Date of this level dump: Mon Apr 28 17:11:13 2008
DUMP: Dumping /dev/sda8 (/mnt/test) to /mnt/foo/mydump
DUMP: Unsupported feature(s) 0x40 in filesystem
/dev/sda8: Filesystem has unsupported feature(s) while opening filesystem
DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.
I haven't yet looked at dump to see how much fs-knowledge it needs for the
dump-0.4b41-9.fc10.i386 does not fail for me on ext4 filesystems. It finishes successfully with all the usual messages and generates an apparently valid dump with correct metadata, but all the file contents are corrupted junk (presumably stuff from elsewhere in the filesystem).
dump-0.4-0.1.b42.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
