"Proper" tar usage for multivolume backups
I just setup Linux/ppc on a Motorola Powerstack E, and it runs
great, aside from a few odd portability issues with the KBACUP
(probably more like afio). Anyway, I need a method, either with tar
or cpio to do multivolume backups on a tape, or accorss multiple tapes
(preferably with compress (hell gzip works fine)). So far I have
heard of techniques involving creating indexes of filemarks on tapes
and using mt to seek out file marks, but I though there had to be a
better (easier) way.
