I got this handy-dandy Sylver tgz file or something, then ran some magical commands on it and it created the entire file system for me.

As you can tell I'm not exactly the Linux expert here.

I spent a number of hours updating one of the apps on the Sylver image and so would like to back this entire file system up in the event something BAD happens, I can get back to where I am now rather than starting all over. I do tend to forget important things.

One twist is that I would like to exclude the /mnt/itunes folder since this has all of my CD rips in it. Don't want to lose that either necessarily, but for this exercise I just want to do the OS.

Thanks!

DL

This seems to have worked fairly well:

Quote:
[root@KURO-BOX:/]$\ tar -cvvf /mnt/tarback/sylver.tar / --exclude=*.mp3 --exclude=*.m4a --exclude=*.wma --exclude=*.mpg --exclude=*.flac --exclude=*.m4p --exclude=/proc --exclude=/tmp
=====================================================
This created a file 1,072 MB in size in /mnt/tarback.
