    hello i resandly installed backuppc by folowing the backuppc howto but i cant backup the /var directory from my opensuse 10.3 client.
    it works fine wen i remove the /var entry from config.pl file.

    i take it you are running this as an normal user
    and maybe its failing due to the /var folder is own by the root : wheel group and maybe you dont have access to read whats in some/all of the folders

    What's the output of
    Code:
    mount
    ? Is AppArmor disabled on the SUSE system?
