Backup Utilities


I am having a hard time finding any good backup utilities for Linux. I want to backup to a cd and then be able to boot from that CD for a restore. The only one I found was mondo but I cant get that working under Debian and it is not officially supported yet.

i dont know any of these, that was a quick search in sourceforge

http://sourceforge.net/projects/mkcdrec/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dump/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cdbk/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cdbkup/


you can use partimage for backing up a whole partition (more or less like ghost)
>> apt-get install partimage
and burn them regurarly on a dvd. You can google for nice scripts that you can cron that can run on their own

I looked into mondo. But I run Debian. I can get the mondo and mindi packages via apt but the mindi-kernel is not available in the repositories and the .deb file links are broken on the site.

Then why not just compile from source?

Mindi works now at my Debian Sarge. I just did the following:

cd /etc
cp modules modules.conf

Do not forget to do this again when changes are made to modules. Instead of a cp you can make a symbolic link.

Hope you will be helped with this.....

After a reboot I discovered that my "cp" method caused a lot of errors at boot time. Sorry!

What really did work for my Debian system (primary install with Knoppix 3.6) was to run soundcardconfig as root. It seems to create a correct modules.conf file that will not cause any errors during boot.
