I want to back Squeeze files prior to upgrade to Wheezy.
I keep getting an empty folder when I try to create backup files to Desktop prior to copying to CD.
/home/rooster/Desktop/backup-sqboot# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 2 rooster rooster 4096 Jun 2 11:16 .
drwxr-xr-x 8 rooster rooster 4096 Jun 2 11:16 ..
I created a folder on Desktop "/backup-sqboot.tar.gz". The command I used was
/home/rooster/Desktop# tar -cvpzf /backup-sqboot.tar.gz /boot
What am I doing wrong?
