Description Morgan Leijström 2023-07-24 22:22:33 CEST
From bug 31071#c34

__Description of problem:
Our version 0.8.6. do not support the EXT4 orphan_file feature, which several currrent distros use - And probably a future Mageia - mga9 did for a period during cauldron.

fsarchiver supports EXT4 orphan_file since 0.8.7 [1].

The support can be patched also to 0.8.6. -If there is any reason not to update?

Assigning to registered maintainer
cc Jani from referenced bug

Note qt-fsarchiver bundles its own copy of fsarchiver, but even so requires fsarchiver, strange, bit for fsarchiver package i think we should not care about that.

Why two bugs for the same topic? Isn't this a dup of bug 32136 ?

Because fsarchiver-qt seem to be hard to maintain and use a bundled fsarchiver anyway (and dep on fsarchiver package probably removed), I was thinking we should separate the two so fsarchiver could be updated using this bug.
