Tracker-tools are a set of scripts I use to administer my Linux box. I've found
them very useful and have decided it's time I packaged them up and made them
These scripts form a backup strategy I am using on my home PC. track
creates symbolic links to files and directories I have added or changed in
a parallel directory structure to /.
Periodically I tar and bzip the files pointed to in this directory
(using marktrack) and store the tarball as my backup. If/when I want
to restore my system I will reinstall all the RPMs I had, and then untar
my backup tarball (backtrack).
||adds link to file to track directory
||removes link to file from track directory
||generates rpms listing, does backup of files
||diffs file with last backup
||creates a CDROM image ready to be burned to disk
||restores .tar.bz2 file
You will probably want customise these scripts for your own system.
Hope you find this useful.
