Mondo Rescue on RL9.2

I try to install Mondo Rescue on RL9.2. Repo is located here:

I downloaded file into /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory and run yum install mondo

I got the following error:

Problem: conflicting requests

  • nothing provides buffer needed by mondo-3.2.2-1.rocky9.x86_64
    (try to add ‘–skip-broken’ to skip uninstallable packages or ‘–nobest’ to use not only best candidate packages)

Could you please advice how to investigate and solve the issue?

Thanks in advance for your help and advice… :slightly_smiling_face:

You might be better asking mondorescue since they are the ones that made buffer or whatever it is one of their dependencies.

There is a perl buffer package in EPEL9, so you could try ensuring EPEL is enabled:

dnf install epel-release

and see if that helps. Otherwise, better ask Mondo Rescue since they will know better on what packages they are relying on.

Indeed this is a mondorescue issue. See for their support options.

I have installed buffer from Fedora (buffer-1.19-26.fc39.x86_64.rpm) - mondo did not complain any more…

You could download the Fedora source rpm and build it with mock on Rocky, then it would be native package for Rocky. But at least it works :slight_smile:

Sometimes installing rpms from other distros can cause big problems in the future, so you may want to remember about this, just in case something comes up in the future and doesn’t want to install, update, etc.

Yes, I am aware of this, anyway this was on test server so I wanted to try… and it worked this time :slight_smile: … now… server is restored from backup so no issues at all.
