I'm trying to backup my /home directory prior to upgrading FC4 using
afio with cdrecord with no success.
I'm using the following command which I've adapted from the example
given in man.
find /home/patrick/* | afio -o -b -K -b 2048 -s 614400x '!cdrecord
This seems to work and checks the data (-K) but then reports the
Sense key: 0x5 Illegal Request, Segment 0
afio: "!cdrecord dev=0,0,0 -": Broken pipe
Version of afio is 2.4.6 - running RH9 (kernel 2.4.x)
Has anyone actually got this to work?
