Just a short note to say that yes, there was a file owned by root, and
when I removed it, everything worked. Thanks!
Now I've realized from looking over logs that bbackupd 0.09 is ignoring my
ExcludeDir directives, and backing up old linux kernel trees etc.
Anyway, I'm rather busy right now. Over the weekend I will have a little
more time and send more info.
And, just out of curiousity. Why are the error messages so spartanic? It
seems like a matter of looking up a string in a table that already exists
- but it isn't done by the software. What is the reason for this? No
request or criticism, I'm just wondering.
