View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Backup before new hardware

December 12th, 2008, 06:08 AM
I have a fax modem I want to put into my computer. Last time I did it, it took over my sound card and Ubuntu no longer recognized the on-board sound card in the system. This is especially weird since there is no audio-out on the modem, but that's besides the point.

I'm curious, is there a method out there to back up my hardware configuration in case this happens again? I don't want to have to reinstall ubuntu; it takes days to get it back to normal.

i like to use sbackup (simple backup)

sudo apt-get install sbackup

then you can configure it to backup whatever part of the filesystem you like
