philipballewI want to create a rsync backup of my entire hd. is that easy to do08:39
head_victimphilipballew: not difficult but depends on what you want to do with it afterwards.08:46
philipballewWell what are things I can do with it that make it difficult?08:47
head_victimIf you're wanting a 1:1 copy I'd suggest something more suited to cloning like dd or clonezilla. If you're just backing up data select the right switches from man rsync and away you go.08:47
philipballewi just was gonna back up from /08:47
philipballewif you know what i mean08:48
head_victimAh it's always problematic to backup a running system. If you want a FULL copy I"d suggest booting a livecd to run from (there are many liveCDs with inbuilt cloning software) and copy that way. You'll never be able to get a proper copy of a system drive that's in use.08:49
head_victimWell that's been my experience anyway.08:49
philipballewwell most all I need is in my home directory08:53
head_victimphilipballew: that shouldn't be too difficult then09:02
head_victimsomething like rsync -azv /home /destination09:02
philipballewwhat in the main file system might i want to back up in your opinion head_victim09:03

kallis4still...aint there a way to fix it ?18:34
holsteinsee if you can get tot he desktop that way... im guessing its the graphics hardware18:34
IAmNotThatGuyNubi1Kenobi_, sudo cp /meda/sda4 /media/sdb6 or something?18:34
CrOnOs2000Nubi1Kenobi_, you cant boot ubuntu and on win 7 you cant mount hdd image right?18:34
holsteinkallis4: sure... what graphics hardware do you have?18:34
Nubi1Kenobi_I am used to navigating through the files structure with dos or windows and am completely lost here18:34
kallis4uhm ...18:35
Nubi1Kenobi_@Cronos200: Correct18:35
kallis4its an intel thing onboard18:35
IAmNotThatGuyNubi1Kenobi_, you have a LIVE CD?18:35
Nubi1Kenobi_Cronos: i can mount to it but part image read/write to it18:35
holsteinkallis4: intel is usually well supported, but you'll need to help me help you, and either try forcing vesa, the nomodeset live idea, or give more info on what hardware you have18:36

CrOnOs2000chenthu, you can use 386 programs on ubuntu x64 you may need to install some 386 libs but synaptics manages that20:11
chenthuCrOnOs2000: so i just have to use dpkg or double clcik it?20:11
CrOnOs2000Nubi1Kenobi_,  thats the device where your partition is , /dev/sda5 most likely20:12
CrOnOs2000chenthu, i will say yes you can always run System-Admin->synaptics to unistall that package20:13
Nubi1Kenobi_CrOnOs2000: I just changed it to 1 word20:13
CrOnOs2000ok you do a sudo su, then you start partimage on same terminal rigth?20:14

Nubi1Kenobi_CrOnOs2000: When my friend was doing it, he was doing it /media/Image Drive/WindowsBase.00020:18
Nubi1Kenobi_I could not repeat what he did....20:18
CrOnOs2000well /media is where normaly ubuntu mounts drives20:19
Nubi1Kenobi_CrOnOs2000: Maybe........lemme try something20:19
CrOnOs2000Image Drive probably is the same as partition label20:19
CrOnOs2000if you have mounted Image Drive try sudo chmod 777 /media/"Image Drive"/*20:21
Nubi1Kenobi_CrOnOs2000: I changed Image Drive to Image20:24
