EvolutionGeneralIdler: no. it was a misconfiguration.
it's since been resolved.
GeneralIdlerok cool!
rangeGeneralIdler: Plus idiocy of a user.
Evolutionyeah. that guy's pretty much a tool.
GeneralIdlerjust saw my copy of that bug report .. thought i'd let you folks know
EvolutionGeneralIdler: we didn't really expect a user to be that level of flaming idiot when it came to filing bugs and providing information.
rangeGeneralIdler: Thanks for telling here and not adding to that bug monitored by all users :)
Evolutionmeh. I still vote nuke the bug and the user.
but I think I know the guy's solution.
GeneralIdlerit should probably be locked or something
evil_steveEliran_Itzhak: try it with tar -cfz
rangeEvolution: Down, not across?
Evolutionhehehe

rangeEliran_Itzhak: Just drop the idea of using an *ARCHIVER* for just one file and gzip it.
Eliran_Itzhakrange, like that ? "cat /dev/hdc | gzip > mybackup.gz"

Eliran_Itzhakrange, and later gunzip mybackup.gz > /dev/hdc ?
bobn_are you really after a disk image Eliran_Itzhak ?
Eliran_Itzhakbobn_, Yep, I;m going to replace my HD, and want to have a backup on my second disk. Any ideas on how to do it better ?
I though about using dd or cat on the (soon to fail) hd.
rangeEliran_Itzhak: I told you somewhere above.
bobn_not actually, except I think there are tools for that.
rangedd | gzip | dd (though the latter is not needed.
)
GeneralIdlerEliran_Itzhak there is a tool that backsup partitions
it only pulls out the valid inodes.. and leaves the deleted ones behind
that'll give you the most compact backup
bobn_http://sourceforge.net/projects/g4l
GeneralIdlerI usually rsync the data ot the new disk and then install grub and boot off it
longworddd would be the preferred tool if a disk is failing - keeps the disk accesses/seeks to a minimum
actionGeneralIdler agrees
GeneralIdleragrees
rangeOr dd_rescue if you already have problems reading blocks.
bobn_I think last time I tried something like dd if=/dev/hdc - it didn't pick up contents of the extended partitions. But this is from memory and it's been a long time.
actually iwas trying something like dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdc - disk cloning cause i was afraid to go RAID1 in my early linux days.
RedStalker_Mikerange, does this kernel (PAE) support more than 4 Gb of RAM?
ChipdancerRedStalker_Mike: up to 64G
linux_probeoh joy at PAE
fifo_heh
