Re: System Restore
Well, for instance if we take /etc/fstab:
I guess for now it would be good if we just overwrite the file with the backed-up one.
But later, I think, there should be some code that would actually check what volumes the user has on his computer and based on this info create on the fly a new fstab file to replace the old one. The reason I'm saying this is cause I lost a partition using GParted (it unmounted it but I couldn't find a way to mount it back, a bug in GParted I guess), so after reboot Gutsy threw me to a root console to "repair the filesystem". That's why IMO a simple restore of the backed up file wouldn't be a complete feature. The (your) app should scan (correctly) for volumes (such as /dev/sda3, /dev/sda4 ), at least starting at some future release..
It should not include (into the /etc/fstab) the volumes that are removable drives - which IMO is pretty hard to implement if one doesn't have experience in such domains (thus I mean programmers like me)
