filesystem not supported - ext4?

Post by craigdabbs » Fri Oct 12, 2012 5:06 pm

Hi i have just recently been getting errors on my systems using fsarchiver.

It claims the filesystem is not supported

Code: Select all

[======DISK======] [=============NAME==============] [====SIZE====] [MAJ] [MIN]
[sda             ] [SAMSUNG HD204UI                ] [     1.82 TB] [  8] [  0]
[sdb             ] [ELSKY MSATA 16GB               ] [    14.91 GB] [  8] [ 16]

[=====DEVICE=====] [==FILESYS==] [======LABEL======] [====SIZE====] [MAJ] [MIN] 
[sda1            ] [LVM2_member] [<unknown>        ] [     1.82 TB] [  8] [  1] 
[sdb1            ] [ext4       ] [OS               ] [    14.91 GB] [  8] [ 17] 
[dm-0            ] [ext4       ] [hd1              ] [     1.82 TB] [254] [  0]

Code: Select all

fsarchiver savefs -v -A -j2 -o -z6 ~/backup.fsa /dev/sdb1
Im trying to backup /dev/sdb1 and it shows this error

Code: Select all

oper_save.c#947,filesystem_mount_partition(): filesystem of partition [/dev/sdb1] is not supported by fsarchiver
I am running arch linux, all up to date and have recently updated to systemd. Kernel is 3.5.6-1.

I would appreciate any insight into a solution. Thankyou

FWIW, I updated my system yesterday, including accepting systemd, and now I'm getting the same error from fsarchiver.
The error is while ti's trying to mount the source partition. filesystem_mount_partition().
I suspect it has something to do with systemd. I will try booting without it and see if that makes a difference.

UPDATE: Yes, when I booted without init=/bin/systemd, fsarchiver worked as usual.
