Copying entire linux partition manually.
I am moving from one disk to another. I tried to use Norton Ghost to back-up current partitions.
Unfortunately even the newset one fails when copying my linux partition.
So now I am doing a manual copy. (Just copying all the files, while running livecd, so that copied linux is off).
Now the there are two problems:
1. when copying system complaint about how it's impossible to copy special files. I thought these are only created on start-up, but clearly I was wrong. How would this affect possibility of manual copy?
2. after copying partitions over to new disk their UUIDs will change. How do I restore grub and fstab easily. Is there anything else I have to restore to succesfully boot copied system?
