Re: Files for a tar (FC3)

Anyway, you can use the -X option in tar, point it to a file that contains all unwanted directories... /var/spool /var/cache /var/lock /var/tmp are probably some others you won't need on most boxes...

/var/spool/mail contains unread mails on a mailserver, not the best candidate for the -X option...

/var/cache/samba contains important information for samba,
at least if it runs as a domain controller. Not a good
candidate either.
