What say you?  It most likely won't ever hit anyone but peeps like you and I and jedi, who are constantly in testing mode, I think I will add it just to make sure that people can see it could be an issue

Yes, this and the potential swapfile/partition issues should be pointed out.

I didn't run into the UUID issue since it was clean install on fully formatted drive each time.

I actually created a swapfile manually instead of a partition. Appears to be working.

Might want to also be aware that SWAP may also need tinkering if you have/use one. I do on this lappy so it can go into hibernate easily.  I think I had a couple of /etc/fstab edits to make before that all settled itself as well.  I'm thinking anyone using a sid is probably pretty versatile using things like blkid and mkswap and swapon stuff on the fly...  8)

True that.. Luckily I already had a how to on how to change the UUID to avoid conflicts and just pointed to that. I don't think it will be an issue but bases are now covered..

Thanks Jedi

Are you enjoying GMB and Pithos again?

Be careful of the same UUID on the same machine if you have multiple installs. That is a natural issue with fsarchive like the time zone because it keeps it.. I think I will add how to change the UUID in the After you install section and HIGHLY recommend it be done

Thanks
I have successfully installed twice to a clean drive and chroot in to update and install grub. So the How To for Method 3 is good.

@vastone

In Method 1

change:

Code: [Select]
sudo fsarchiver -v restfs vsido_linux_02SEPT2022.fsa id=0, dest=/dev/sdxx
to

Code: [Select]
sudo fsarchiver -v restfs vsido_linux_02SEPT2022.fsa id=0,dest=/dev/sdxx
can't have that space between "id=0" and "dest=/dev/sdxx"

It failed on me first two attempts, then I removed the space and it went to completion.

Your quick. The fixes look good.

I added a blurb about pointing out that US Central Tiimezone is preserved in the fsarchive, so users outside that zone will need to make a change manually.

I added step 10a: Change your timezone, because the timezone is US Central Time (Chicago)  that's because fsarchiver preserves that information, and it's simply restored. You can use this link - Set/Change timezone Debian 10. The Debian Wiki also has the info, but it's in this really, really verbose wiki page

Thank you!
