I'd like my LinuxPPC system, running Kernel 2.2.18 (RedHat distribution) to
be able to do (incremental) backups on its own at 4:00AM, a la Restrospect
Express on the Mac side. The preferred format of storage would be bzip2'd
tarballs, saved to either my CD-RW or a Zip250.
Is there any way to reliabaly do this? I'm assuming I have to start up some
"infinite" process in the background during the startup phase.
Also, what kind of permissions would I need to access the Zip250/CD-RW for
*writing*? Would a simple
chmod g=rwx /dev/cdrw
chgrp backup /dev/cdrw
work, and I could assign the backup process to group "backup"? Or do
background processes usually run as ROOT?
Like anime? Got hotline?
