Backing up whole Fedora 10


Hi,
With the SystemRescueCd ,typing xinit in the terminal a graphical interface with the terminal appears.
There typing partimage got the partimage window.
Giving a filename like "backup" the backing up process starts.
After a while it prompts that there is no space left.

The current directory was like this: [root@localhost/root]#

What should I do then?
Where should I save the backup file?
Can anyone give any idea?

You need to have a separate partition to store backup image or mount one of your partitions with enough space on it to save backup file there. (specifing the path in partimage). Obviously, the partition which you're going to backup should not be mounted, but the partition you're backing up to should be mounted with read/write access.

Problem solved.
mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/backup

Backed up there and restored again.
