1) When I do a man page on 'tar', the screen comes up all garbled. I believe
this was discussed on the list a while back, but I can't seem to find those mails
that will shed some insight on why this is happening. Does this have something to
do with the $TERM variable?
2) I am using 'tar' to create a backup of a directory structure to another Linux server
on the same LAN. Here is a screen dump:
# tar -cvzf -f 126.96.36.199:/usr/backups /tmp/testdir
Gives this output
tar: 188.8.131.52\:/usr/backups: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
I am trying to backup the directory /tmp/testdir and copy the archive onto the
server substituted by the IP address 'IP'. Where am I going wrong here?
