I have two questions wrt to live-snapshot (well, two-and-a-half :)
All is with a fairly recent live toolset on Lenny:
ii live-helper 1.0.1-1 Debian Live build scripts
ii live-initramfs 1.139.1-3 Debian Live initramfs hook
(1) I'm trying to use a cpio.gz snapshot. To this end, I created one, put
it on a block device (actually a partition on an USB stick). This
file is called live-sn.cpio.gz. I also put a second one there,
home-sn.cpio.gz (but see my second question).
On boot of the live system all is fine. Problem arises when trying to
refresh the snapshot: in /etc/live.conf I see something like:
The first field of the colon-separated entries should be the name of
the COW directory, which in my system is /live/cow (and not root). If
I change the entry in /etc/live.conf to read
all works as expected (i.e. "sudo live-snapshot --refresh" writes out
the cpio archive with all the changes).
Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a buglet somewhere?
(2) Do I have to do anything special to have separate "live" and "home"
snapshots? As far as I can see, there is only one COW directory
mounted over / -- so any changes (included those in /home) would land
in live-sn. But I must be missing something, right?
(3) Now to the half-question: I would like to take another kind of
snapshots: rsync snapshots over the net. Would there be interest in
it? Would it make sense to provide some hook magic, to not have all
the snapshot machinery built in? Ideas?
