Re: local partition backup with rsync

Thanks for the answers.
I guess I will try rsnapshot and rdiff-backup because although the rsync
job now works OK with --exclude /hdb5, I cannot boot from it: it keeps
booting the partition that it came from, although I adjusted
/hdb5/etc/fstab and reran lilo to point to the newly copied partition.
You did edit /etc/lilo.conf as well, didn't you...
I did. I can't figure it out.
1. Changed /etc/fstab on the copy:
/dev/hdc5 / ext2 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
2. Changed /etc/lilo.conf from the originating partition to refer to the
append="apm=on ddcon=1 video=vesafb:ypan,1024x768-32@85 quiet"
3. Boot B5-617UX+ and what does df show?
/dev/hdc3 7691004 3443139 3857084 48% /
The originating partition.
