Multiple excludes with flarcreate
On my Solaris 8 system with up-to-date patches, flarcreate does not seem to honor
multiple excludes (-x). It
appears that others have also seen this behavior:
It is possible to use the output of find
with flarcreate's -f and -F flags to perform multiple
Example: exclude directories /home,/net, and /xfn from being included in the
find / \( -name home -o -name net -o
-name xfn \) -prune -o -print > /tmp/flar_files
Note: you may want to remove the line containing "/" from /tmp/flar_files. Otherwise, you
will receive an error.
Creating the archive...
cpio: Error with lstat() of "",
errno 2, No such file or directory
grep -v "^/$" /tmp/flar_list >
mv /tmp/flar_list.tmp /tmp/flar_list
-n "Flash archive" -a "email@example.com" -f
/tmp/flar_files -F -c -S /tmp/archive.flar
