In the process of moving our main file server to new hardware, I found a problem in restoring the multivolume L1 dump on the new system (that looks suspiciously like the "[ 1165648 ] segfault restoring level 1 backup" issue I found in the tracker -- but more on that later). The new system is running the latest "dump", but the old system (where the backups were made) only has version 0.4b31 installed. So I thought I should try it again using dumps made with the latest version. Alas, the latest won't compile on this vintage-2002 system; a transcript is attached. :-(
Here are the particulars of the software on the old system, which is SuSE GNU/Linux release 8.1:
I suspect the problem is obvious to a seasoned C hacker . . . but that's not me; I keep getting lost in /usr/include/.
