OK... glibc 2.2.4 is in place. I forget sometimes how easy Slackware is
I'm running an interactive restore of my /usr/local/src directory, which
is what I recently lost that needs restoration the most.
OK... I got a bit further this time, but the restore ended with this
xfsrestore: restoring non-directory files
xfsrestore: examining media file 8
xfsrestore: seeking past media file directory dump
xfsrestore: drive_scsitape.c:1507: do_next_mark: Assertion
`rechdrp->first_mark_offset - rechdrp->file_offset <= ( off64_t )(
contextp->dc_recsz )' failed.
It managed to restore 15790 files. Unfortunately, it is still stopping
short of the files I actually need.
This error sounds like the original dump failed, but it didn't, and I'm
fairly certain I verified this tape.
Is this backup lost? Would it be worthwhile to bring back my
/var/lib/xfsdump directory and try again?
