In the will to put nix on my laptop I was trying some live disks and I found this nice distro
Everything worked out-of-the-box from the live cd so I decided to install it on the laptop (got a little problem only with audio but I think I'll able to resolve it).
I need to repartition my hd so first of all I've mount the three fat32 partition that I got on it to backup them:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2
mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/sda3
When I was trying to backup them on my gentoo/myth box that I got under the tv
for disk in sda1 sda2 sda3
tar cvjf - /mnt/$disk | ssh user@gentoobox dd of=/home/user/backup-$disk.tar
...I run in an error, something like "Invalid filesystem journal" (don't remember it well, has passed one day :P sorry!).
So I called a friend of a my friend and he told me it was something related to tar not handling well fat32 partitions...
Question 1) Is that real? How can I resolve it? I googled alot but didn't find an answer...
However I noticed that the process did still run but I blocked it in the fear to have a not good backup...
2) So I need to know also how I can test the archive to be 100% sure that it will works?
3) Is there something that I need to know about Fedora or can I use as a stupid user?
I got some experience with Centos so...
