2 Issues regarding MONDO

All,

Been trying to get MONDO installed on my box. Have 11.3 and running the following script for the install:

#!/bin/bash

# Script to install mondo system archiver
clear;
echo "Changing to Downloads Dir";
cd /home/downloads
echo " ";

echo "Adding Packman Repo";
zypper addrepo --repo http://packman.inode.at/suse/11.3/packman.repo
echo " ";
echo "Adding SUSE Aux Repo";
zypper addrepo mondo -c -f -n mondo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Archiving:/Backup:/MondoRescue/SLE_11/i586/
echo " ";
echo "Adding Mondo Rescue Repo";
zypper addrepo --repo -f ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/suse/11.1/i386/mondorescue.repo
echo " ";

echo "Installing packages";
yum -y install afio;
yum -y install buffer;
yum -y install binutils;
yum -y install dosfstools;
yum -y install mtools;
yum -y install parted;
yum -y install mkisofs;
yum -y install cdrecord;
yum -y install syslinux;
yum -y install mondo-doc;
yum -y install mindi;
yum -y install mindi-busybox;
yum -y install mondo;
echo " ";
echo "Bash script done!";

The repositories load but then are not available when the “yum install” statements run. I tried “yum update” but that did not help so now what is needed?

Second issue is I’m using an external USB DVD burner and can not get the DVD to show in the linked hardware listings, so need help getting that mounted.

All help appreciated!

Thanks!

Do you have yum installed at all?

All,

Also tried the install with manual “wget” statements, as follows:

Adn get these errors:

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

Bash script done!
But have already installed the commented out packages and even reboot a couple of times.

Thanks!

Yes Yum is installed and working.

All,

Can I get some help here?

There is a version of the project in the build service, maybe try
installing from there rather than using the process you’re using.

Jim,

No offense, but it’s not working, so I’m using the best work around I can find. I did originally call “yum -y install mondo” and got nothing.

Also remember this is a server box so only command line, no X-Win available.

Sorry but haven’t visited this one for a few days, and kinda thinking I got it up, but still having the DVD mount issue. I won’t get back to this till after the holidays, but DVD is recognized on bootup, but will not manually mount. Obviously, at least to me, I don’t have the mount command string right. If you have insight on this post it, so when I get back to this next week, I can run through this all at once and report my progress.

Thanks!

No offense taken.

You can’t just use the yum command without setting up a repository or
downloading the package and using the rpm command to install it. To the
best of my knowledge, yum won’t search every possible repository for the
package you’re looking for (it would be crazy, indeed, to search the home
projects since a lot of those are just test projects people have built
for themselves).

I don’t believe I suggested anything that requires a GUI. Personally, I
tend to prefer the CLI myself.

Looks like the problem is that it’s using 11.2 packages, but the 11.2
repos have been discontinued as that release is out of support.

It also isn’t clear from your posts what release of openSUSE you’re using

  • I’m seeing 11.2, 11.2, 11.3, and SLE11 in your various posts, and that
    mix of packages is likely to cause you troubles.

Jim,

OK some explainations about versions. We have 11.4, but built and put on the machine by VICIdial. We can not use any new respositories as most of those require upgrades or updates to kernal packages that VICI will not tolerate, so that is why older versions of tools being loaded are needed, to not break the machines primary function(s). VICI is a PBX application and all these, based on Asterisk, except Elastix, seem very unforgiving and unwieldy.

Hope that clears up a little.

Thanks!

OMR

Quick Note:

Hey I support a lot of customer machines and never know what I’m getting till I’m there. When they come with these custom packages that say “Don’t touch or upgrade the kernal”, then I’m stuck. VICI is a little better than most as they publish upgrades themselves and within their upgrades, is the ability to let the kernel upgrades be applied, but that puts me on their schedule, not on the kernel upgrade schedule.

Thanks for understanding!
