     54    <title>Backup / Restore</title>

     56    <para>
     57      Now that the essential tools has been created, its time to think about
     58      a backup. When every check has passed successfully in the previously
     59      built packages, your temporary tools are in a good state and might be
     60      backed up for later reuse. In case of fatal failures in the subsequent
     61      sections, it often turns out that removing everything and start over
     62      (more carefully) is the best option to recover. Unfortunatly, all the
     63      temporary tools will be removed, too. To avoid extra time to redo
     64      something which has been built successfully, make sure you have at least
     65      600 MB free disk space (the source tarballs will be included in the
     66      backup archive) in the home directory of user
     67      <systemitem class="username">lfs</systemitem> and prepare a backup:
     68    </para>
     69
     70<screen role="nodump"><userinput>cd $LFS &amp;&amp;
     71tar -cJpf $HOME/temp-tools.tar.xz .
     72</userinput></screen>
     73
     74    <para>
     75      In case you have to start over as some mistakes has been made, you can
     76      use this backup to restore the temporary tools and save some time on
     77      the way to recover. Since the sources are located under
     78      <filename class="directory">$LFS</filename>, they are included in the
     79      backup archive as well, so you need not to download them again. After
     80      checking that <filename class="directory">$LFS</filename> is set proper,
     81      restore the backup by executing the following commands:
     82    </para>
     83
     84<screen role="nodump"><userinput>cd $LFS &amp;&amp;
     85rm -rf ./* &amp;&amp;
     86tar -xpf $HOME/temp-tools.tar.xz
     87</userinput></screen>
     88
     89    <para>
     90      Again, double check that the environment has been setup proper and
     91      continue building the rest of the system.
