restore file or dir from dump file


Is it possible to restore just single file or directory from a dump file?
Which switch should I use?

regards brumela

Could you be more specific? How did you get the dump file, which application did you use to create it, what directory or file are you trying to retrieve... A dump file could mean a variety of things.

Cool

hmm,... yes you are right, I created my dump file with dump command, like this
Quote:
/sbin/dump -j -f /home/bruma/backup/rootfs.dump /bin /dev /lib /misc /sbin /var /boot /etc /initrd /opt /root /usr

Well it looks like there is a restore command that comes with the dump package (don't have it, simply reading what's available on the net) and if it's run in interactive mode you can restore single directories.

Cool
