Bug Description

Binary package hint: mondo

When running sudo mondoarchive, it reports an error once it reaches the state where it builds the file catalog (or shortly after):

boekhold@boekhold:/mnt$ sudo mondoarchive
See /var/log/mondoarchive.log for details of backup run.
WARNING: Module loop not found.

Type 'less /var/log/mondoarchive.log' to see the output log

Seems like it's looking for the grub.conf file in the wrong location. The text above suggests making a symlink, but I've seen reports on the Net that that will fail during a restore because it expects /etc/grub.conf to be a real file, not a symlink.

Need to find a PPA; so far no joy:
