Yes. I did an encrypted back-up of my system; and then because of I/O errors I did a low level format on my SCSI disk; and reinstalled debian with the latest Sarge.
Now, on my new system, with a different username, I am trying to decrypt, and install, off of my back-up disk.
I mounted the cdrom; and then tried:
'sudo gpg -d /cdrom/hebrews.....tgz | tar -xzvpP'
During the screen scroll I kept seeing 'Can't open. No such file or directory' attached to the end of each file that tar was displaying.
'sudo gpg -d /cdrom/hebrews.....tgz | tar -tz' shows me whats on the CD.
