Hi, I'm using dump(8) for backing up a FreeBSD 4.10 server. In order to decrease the resulting file size, I flagged some directories like /usr/ports and /usr/src with 'nodump'. I adjusted the dump level 0 script to have -h 0, so that worked fine. The other scripts for dumps >0 do not have a -h flag set, because -h 1 is default.
The problem is that new files appearing in the /usr/ports tree (daily portsnap cron) do not have the 'nodump' flag set. But despite the 'nodump' flag on the /usr/ports directory, the new files in the tree are still dumped. I understood that dump does not enter directories with 'nodump' flag set, so it shouldn't see the new files inside, right? Or is this behavior implemented in a newer version than FreeBSD 4.10? I have scanned the CVS logs for dump, but couldn't find anything relevant. One 'hack' is to run a script prior to the dump to recursively set all 'nodump' flags where appropriate, but I'm hoping that someone can enlighten me what is going on. Thanks in advance, -- Bram Schoenmakers What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind.
