MondoRescue 3.2.1 is definitively looking better but will for sure with your help !

Since a couple of days, I’ve passed quite some time to deal with the various reports that were made on the mondo mailing list with regards to bugs found by users on version 3.2.0. Of course, as every .0 version, not everything was tested, and the help of the community is as usual key to find these cases left appart, and of course find bugs in them !

What has been fixed is available here:
http://trac.mondorescue.org/query?status=closed&group=resolution&milestone=3.2.1

The other BRs I’d like to address before releasing 3.2.1 are:

  • glibc detect an invalid pointer (#766)
  • Smartarray b120i closed drivers not working (#751)

and the older, but really annoying one:

  • Fail to Restore from External Hard Disk (#628)

While I think I can deal with the 2 first one pretty easily, the last one requires more time and will probably end up in 3.2.2 instead, as it’s difficult to delay more 3.2.1 now that the most annoying issues have been solved.

In the mean time, please test the beta of 3.2.1 at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/ (lots of distros available). That will clearly help me finalizing that version. Hopefully you’ll mostly report successes, but I really need your help to make it much better than 3.2.0.

With the latest devs made on mindi to support again correctly older distributions such as RHEL5 (which wasn’t working anymore in 3.2.0), I think I’ll also being able to make the promised 3.0.5 soon, for those wanting to avoid the risk of using a mondoarchive very different in code with lots of dynamically allocated memory. That will pretty surely be the last one in that serie. The focus is really now on the 3.2 branch.

Thanks for your continuous support on this project !

    Hi trying to file a bug for mindi but “trac.mondorescue.org” doesn’t not allow new users to register, nor to retrieve my old password. It always complains that it cannot password file!!!

      Hello,

      Due to very excessive spamming of trac, I had to remove account creation on the instance. That’s unfortunate, but I have no time to improve stuff at the moment, so resorted to do that. If you send to me your trac accountby mail, I’ll give you your passwd or reset it

    […] First all those of you who had problems restoring big files with 3.2.0 which had issues with that. Now that’s solved (was already with the beta previously). […]
