Description enrico.scholz 1999-09-07 20:26:32 UTC
mke2fs of the e2fsprogs-package>=1.15 is creating
filesystems with revision level #1 by default.

This revision level is not understood by dump and aborts
dump with "Get a newer version of dump!".

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-08 15:52:59 UTC
What version of dump are you using? The latest in Raw Hide is
dump-0.4b4-9.

This has been fixed in the dump currently in Raw Hide.
