Remove the subpackage 'rmt' from dump
Last modified: 2013-06-05 02:31:31 EDT
The 'rmt' package is mostly about /usr/sbin/rmt binary. Similar (more recent)
version of this binary is also in 'star' distribution tarball. See the
If the binary _was_ compatible with dump, would it be possible to remove this
subpackage from dump? And let it be obsoleted by star's 'rmt'?

How to test dump with new rmt delivered by star package.
Dump patch has defined path to /usr/sbin/rmt directly.
You need to have two machines or localhost on the one machine.
On the one machine use following commands:
1) export RSH=/usr/sbin/rmt
2) dump -0 -f <username>@<ipaddress_of_another_pc_or_localhost>:<file> <path_to_directory>
dump command has to be run under root user.
Thanks for testing and patch!

Here is a typo s/RSH/RMT/ .

I checked it also (over ssh) and it works ok:
RMT=/usr/sbin/rmt RSH=/usr/bin/ssh dump -0 -f localhost:/tmp/bootDump /boot
(note that dump does not ask for ssh password so you need to use ssh-copy-id
FYI: I have committed (and built) the changes in star in Rawhide — the Epoch
of new rmt package from star.spec is '2', so it should replace rmt from
dump.spec in a natural way. So from this time, the 'rmt' removal from dump is
dump package was build up.
