Is there an easy way to reconstruct the basic heirarchy and files for /var?
I had a reiserfs meltdown after installing 2.4.2. I'm not really sure if it
was that or the new reiserutils or a combination of both. reiserfsck
managed to fix everything except for /var which was pretty well hosed. So I
had to dpkg -X the older version of reiserutils and install it manually.
Then a reiserfsck --rebuild-tree on var fixed the problem, but as expected
nuked _everything_ on the partition. So is there anything easier than
manually creating/touching files as needed for syslogd, dpkg, gdm, etc.
