I'd say "udev".

I dunno how does mondo works. Is it a program to be run on live
installations or needs to be loaded from a livecd or...? :-?

I think that it's dmsetup - or a combination of dmsetup and udev.

Mondoarchive creates a bootable media and that is booted to restore the
data archived. But saying 'udev' is very general...

I have a question: who creates exactly those /dev/ entries?

The reason I ask is that sometimes with mondorescue they are not created and
I cnnot access the lv's.


I think that it's dmsetup - or a combination of dmsetup and udev.




Sure enough, from 'man dmsetup':

...
create
device_name [-u uuid] [--notable | --table <table> | table_file]

Creates a device with the given name. If table_file or <table> is
supplied, the table is loaded and made live. Otherwise a table is read
from standard input unless --notable is used. The optional uuid can be
used in place of device_name in subsequent dmsetup commands. If
successful a device will appear as /dev/device-mapper/<device-name>. See
below for information on the table format.

Ah, that could explain why mondo fails the detection. "udev" create
devices on the fly -at booting- so mondo may use another nomenclature or
method to create them :-?

Well, the actual situation is very interesting:

1. I can create the mondorescue bootable DVD from an lv and that, when
booted, correctly creates the 'dev/mapper' entries under Squeeze.


2. But I cannot do that under Sid, the 'dev/mapper' enries are not
created consistently...


3. Meaning, when I do a Debian install of Squeeze, upgrade that to Sid
and start installing the complete system, initially mondorescue DVD's
generate the 'dev/mapper' entries, but after a while they do not.


4. Until I have a mondorescue DVD that generates the 'dev/mapper' enries
correctly and restore that to an lv. Then boot that lv and immediately
run mondoarchive to generate another rescue DVD, and that DVD does *not*
generate the 'dev/mapper' entries...


Prompting me to find out how those things are created...

I don't know mondorescue. To access lv from my rescue system (grml) I
use the following commands:
/sbin/vgscan
/sbin/vgchange -ay

This creates the /dev/mapper/ entries - and is what is done in debian's
lvm2 init script.

That's exactly what the mondorescue init script does but in some cases
this does not create the /dev/mapper/ entries. I'd sure like to know
why. I have a hunch that it is not able to create the lockfile.
