The solution has been written in C/bash/perl and developed on a Mandriva Gnu/Linux distribution. For it to work, you will need:

  • afio: the packaging tool used to create the archive packets
  • gzip: the most standard compressor used by Mondo Rescue
  • mkisofs: the tool to create ISO images
  • mindi-busybox: the swiss army knife busybox configured for mindi: a full set of commands in a single binary (embedded)
  • mindi: the mini-distro builder part of the project
  • mondo: the disaster recovery tool itself

For Mandriva/Mandrake distributions, just use the magic:
urpmi mondo

to use the native packages of your distribution, or download the repo file mondorescue.addmedia script and launch it if you want to use upstream packages.

For Fedora distributions, after downloading the repo file mondorescue.repoand adding it to the /etc/yum.repos.d directory, just use the magic:
yum install mondo

For Debian/Ubuntu, just use the magic:
apt-get install mondo

to use the native packages of your distribution, or download the repo file mondorescue.sources.list and add it to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory if you want to use upstream packages.

For the other RPM based distributions, you will have to issue a
rpm -ivh *.rpm
in the directory containing all the required packages, and solve dependancies manually.


Mondo's FTP site is available at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org

All the MondoRescue packages are built thanks to the Project-Builder.org tool.

Most of the time, you'll be able to download directly the packages suited for your distribution. Currently we provide packages for :

Older packages are also on the ftp site to help for some old fashion distros/versions.

Test packages are also on the ftp site for people wanting to test latest versions and report their success/failures.
