    Backing up LFS (attn Ralinx)

    How do you back up your LFS system?

    I was thinking of dd'ing my LFS '/' partition into a disk image, then compressing it with bzip2, and then storing it on my parent's computer (they have more free space than I do, and I really need my free space...).

    and then storing it on my parent's computer.
    Now that's a great idea. *Since most parents have no clue (I know mine don't), you could probably hide all of your xxx stuff on their computer as well (of course, I don't suggest doing that).

    No, no, my parents computer is never on at times convenient for me. The only files I can store on their computer are large ones that I do not need often (backups and ISOs. not porn or MP3s).

    No way! Do you mean computers are used for things other than mp3s and porn? *;D

    Re: Backing up LFS (attn Ralinx)

    this is what i do:
    i have a partition that is solely dedicated to backing up my LFS partition.
    once i week i copy my entire LFS system to it (except for /mnt and /proc, i just create those dirs and the mountpoints myself) while making sure the permissions stay the same (cp -Rp <dirname&gt. After it's all copied, i edit the /etc/fstab on the backuppartition so it points to the right partition for / and i add a lilo entry for booting my backuppartition.

    this way, whenever something goes wrong i'll always have a fully working backupsystem available that i can boot to at any time and then i can just fix things from there.

    Re: Backing up LFS (attn Ralinx)

    Hey, good idea. That's what I should do with my old windows partition since I haven't booted it in over a few months (I always kept it as an emergency backup in case my linux install died and I needed to get online for help).

    I guess since I officially know enough about linux to not have to worry about it dying on me, I should probably ditch my windows partition. Mwhahaha

    Hey, since my windows partition and my lfs / partition are roughtly the same size, think I could just dd it straight over? ie, if lfs / is /dev/hda5 and windows C: is /dev/hda1, could I do this:

    dd if=/dev/hda5 of=/dev/hda1

    ?

    Hey Feztaa: You could always check out the BootCD hint over at http://hints.linuxfromscratch.org and that way you can have a backup of your base system if you screw things up. This is provided that you have a burner ;D
