Hi, I am having a problem backing up my homedir on my F9 box. When the backup software tries to read the .gvfs file system as root the software complains that it cannot read it. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=534284 says that this broken behavior is deliberate and will not be fixed.So the question is, how are we supposed to backup the homedirs? I never logoutof this machine or reboot it unless I need to upgrade the kernel.I know I can umount the .gvfs filesystem and the backups will complete without a problem but I cannot find any documents stating how to remount the .gvfs filesystem without logging out or even if it is necessary to remount it.Can anyone shed some light on this? This behavior is annoying at best. Regards,
Sorry to reply again. Also, in the case of tar, you can do --ignore-failed-read so that tar will continue without bailing.
