restoring FC1 to *new* partition from tar archive



Hi I've just had to relocate my FC1 to a different partition. I used
tar...  And I'm hoping I did this well enough for it to survive when I
eventually use anaconda to upgrade to FC2.

Would someone tell me if I did this right?  I've usually only done this
kind of thing with partimage. But not all of my partitions are the same
exact size so I thought I'd learn to use tar.

I was concerned about files being updated during the tar -czf process
however, so I booted my mdk9.1 partition, and used mkfs on the new FC1
partition to ensure a clean ext2 file system. Then I and mounted the old
and new FC1 partitions.

next I did a cd to the old FC1's mount point and:

# tar -czf /archivepath/tarfilename.tgz .

Tar said it was skipping some sockets, which I wasn't sure about, but all
of them were in /tmp so I figured they couldn't be that important...

Then I did a cd to the new FC1 mount point and:

# tar -xpzf /archivepath/tarfilename.tgz .

The timezone is misconfigured in the mdk installation so tar gave me some
warnings about some timestamps being many seconds in the future, but I
didn't see that as a problem...

Then I edited the new fedora's /etc/fstab & /etc/lilo.conf & a
few scripts, plus my mdk's lilo.conf. Then did a lilo -b /dev/hda
and booted the NEW FC1 partition...

FC1 booted successfully in it's new home. Everything seams to be working
correctly (so far) or at least as correctly as it was from the old
partition. Including x.

But just before the run level 3 boot prompt there are a few warning
messages I don't get time to read before the boot prompt steps on them. 
No problem I thinks. <shift>+<page up> But while most of the boot screen
messages are there, the error messages I'm looking for which were near
the bottom are not there. (I looked at dmesg and didn't see them, but
thats the topic of a different messaage...) However, in case it tells you
more than it does me, about how successful this restoration was, I'm
attaching a copy of the file I got with # dmesg > dmesg_FC1_hdc3_tar.txt

Additionally I notice that while I'm running x, If I <ctrl>+<alt>+<F1>
back to the console I typed startx in, the screen id full of nearly identical
error messages differing only in a sequential number. 
The last one says:

Invalid entry (missing '=') at /usr/bin/pam-panel-icon:115

Though it is possible that this may have been so on the old partition also...

Still, should I worry about these???

 
Thanks!
