Issue #2527 has been updated by thomas.nikolajsen.

File backupworld.update.20130406.patch added
Status changed from New to In Progress

This issue should be solved before 3.4 release,
as installworld currently fails when using NFS MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX (e.g. /usr/obj).

At least backupworld-auto should be disabled by default.

Patch for updating backupworld build(7) feature attached;
it also describes & solves a few more problems w/ current backupworld.

Bug: This breaks on NFS object trees as the copy tries to set flags,
which can't be done over NFS


1) getting an 'off button' back for this would be swell
2) build(7) should probably be updated with whatever the final result is.

personally, I'd prefer this was optional behavior with an 'on' switch,
(e.g. it seems sort of like a 'developer setting' like CFLAGS, etc)

but, that's me.

sorry to back seat drive with no attched patch - lifes a bit hectic ATM.
