I would use # rsync -C -x -u -a -v -A -X / /[new mount point without a trailing /] You will have to clean up /boot and /etc/fstab so it will boot properly. You can read the rsync docs to see what it is doing. _______________________________________________ users mailing list -- firstname.lastname@example.org To unsubscribe send an email to users-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org
