Hi, I've been using K3b to backup software I have developed as root and as user. On a recent install to a second desktop I discovered that the backed up files did not have dates and permissions retained.
I thought about tar-ing everythng and piping to cp using permission retention but tar is apparently not recursive in Slackware 13.37.
I want to extract /etc, /opt, /root, and the user recursively. What would be the best/fastest way?
