Dump errors with selinux



We've used dump/restore for our backups since way back in RH7.x. Unfortunately after our recent upgrade to FC3 I'm getting a ton of errors from it due to the extra ACLs required for selinux.

$ more dump.09-12-04.log
  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Thu Dec  9 08:46:18 2004
  DUMP: Dumping /dev/sda6 (/) to /dev/nst0
  DUMP: Label: /

  DUMP: ACLs in inode #143 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #144 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #146 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #148 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #191 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #200 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #207 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #208 won't be dumped
  DUMP: ACLs in inode #212 won't be dumped

[and a LOAD more of these]

So a few questions:

Is there an option for dump which will fix this (I couldn't find anything which looked useful in the man page)?

Is this a bug?

Am I going to have to look for another backup solution? If so what other programs do correctly handle ACLs? Tar? Cpio?

Thanks for any info.

Simon.
