New Mondorescue 3.0.2 beta version available

This version will fix again some problem met by customers or community users. Among these, as detailed earlier, the crash at restore time that was affecting users of MD software raid volumes, and the fact that we are now supporting UUID for their designation such as on RHEL 6.

Also for RHEL 5 users, there was an error on “no space left on device” at restore time, due to a modification in the way we are including more tools in the initrd, leading to the inclusion of the MAKEDEV program which was creating issue on device creation leading to that error message. It turns out this is also triggered by the busybox shell, so as we need anyway bash in the initrd, we will now use bash by default as the shell to launch all our scripts at restore time.

Mindi log files included in mondoarchive.log will also now be the expected one, not the one from an intermediate run.

2 contributors also provided fixes for issues: one for correct keyboard support by SLES by Victor Gattegno (who also helped around other bug fixes in this version), another one around the support of multiple PVs by bzium.

Even if 19 bugs were closed, I still have 2 issues that I’d like to fix before releasing 3.0.2: one around SLES grub install issue, and one around duplicate hpsa driver. And there are some others that may find their way in it. But that will be difficult, as I have a training in UK from the 2nd of May to the 4th of May, so I’ll publish the new version before in order to have it available at the training time !

So please test the beta version I made available at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test and let me know if you find it stable for your case, and what other remaining issues you’d like me to work on next.
