This is a followup to the problems I've been having when the /proc
directory wasn't excluded, and the trouble I've been having getting it
I finally got it to exclude the directories. Even after upgrading to
the latest alpha (good job and thanks BTW), it still wasn't excluding my
directories properly. I found that it was passing the options to tar
fine, but tar wasn't excluding them. It turns out that you shouldn't
put any path information in - by telling it to just exclude "proc" I was
able to get it to work. The problem is, any files named proc, dev, or
tmp will not be backed up as well. Any ideas on workarounds? Thanks.
