Description enrico.scholz 1999-09-07 20:26:32 UTC
mke2fs of the e2fsprogs-package>=1.15 is creating
filesystems with revision level #1 by default.

This revision level is not understood by dump and aborts
dump with "Get a newer version of dump!".

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-08 15:52:59 UTC
What version of dump are you using? The latest in Raw Hide is
dump-0.4b4-9.

Comment 2 enrico.scholz 1999-09-09 01:12:59 UTC
Some information about my system:
$ rpm -q dump e2fsprogs
dump-0.4b4-9
e2fsprogs-1.15-2

$ dumpe2fs /dev/hda1 | head
dumpe2fs 1.15, 18-Jul-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
Filesystem volume name:   /boot
Last mounted on:          <not available>
Filesystem UUID:          ....
Filesystem magic number:  0xEF53
Filesystem revision #:    1 (dynamic)    <---- dump accepts only == 0
Filesystem features:      sparse_super
Filesystem state:         not clean
Errors behavior:          Continue
Filesystem OS type:       Linux

$ /sbin/dump -0u -f - /dev/hda1
  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Thu Sep  9 03:09:45 1999
  DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
  DUMP: Dumping /dev/hda1 (/boot) to standard output
/dev/hda1: while opening filesystem

/dev/hda1 was formated by "mke2fs /dev/hda1"
