DUMP (dump and restore backup commands)
Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed
up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium.
Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup.
The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a
full backup of a filesystem. Single files and directory subtrees may also be
restored from full or partial backups in interactive mode.
You might want to read this post by Linus:
and the counter-argument on:
Slackware's tar package already has rmt, therefore this SlackBuild
CONFLICT: The restore application conflicts with the tar package.
On installing this dump package "/usr/sbin/restore" will be overwritten.
Should you remove the dump package, you may note that this file will not be
deleted because it is "shared" with the tar package. You may opt to reinstall
the stock tar package after uninstalling the dump package.
Hint: # slackpkg reinstall tar
This SlackBuild disables the SELinux functionality and dependency.
