Hi. I'm quite an OpenBSD newbie, and I keep on trying a whole lot of things and switch forth and back from pdaXrom, Cacko and OpenBSD.

Right now I'm using my C3000 only to play music / C++ coding / wardriving. OpenBSD does those things quite well, and being able to SSH into my zaurus to change the currently playing song is quite fun wink.gif

But I'm starting to mess with the kernel, building the patches iamasmith provided to fix the X event buffer bug, and I would like to "revert" the zaurus to a previous backup, the fastest way possible. I am not using any form of backup right now. I've looked at amanda, rsync, or just "tar"ing the whole disk. What would be perfect would be a background backup to a remote samba directory executed between certain hours when the zaurus is idle.

What are you using to backup / restore your precious little machine ?

i just backuped my openbsd system with a tar zcvpf backup.tgz /
i hope i'll be able to restore it later after i spend my holidays with pdaxii13 wink.gif

do you think a stock restore will work after the initial openbsd partitionning scheme ?
