A question about "mondo" a powerful backup utility


In the manpage of the utility "mondoarchive", there is a switch "-k path". According to the manpage, it says that:

Quote:
Path of userís kernel. If you are a Debian or Gentoo user then specify -k FAILSAFE as your kernel. Otherwise, you will rarely need this option.
I am using "Ubuntu", which inherit Debian. So will I be required to use switch for proper functioning? Besides, what is this switch after all? Can anyone elaborate a bit about this?

Thank you!

I'm pretty sure you don't need the -k switch for Ubuntu.

The mondo team has a mailing list that the developers monitor and are pretty quick to respond to, you should send your query for explanation on the -k switch to the list.

Cheers
