To perform the above request would require an edit to the script
/etc/edge.nightly. Rather than edit edge.nightly, copy
edge.nightly to another file for editing and to run your backup.
For example, log in as root and type:
cp /etc/edge.nightly /etc/edge.daily
Edit /etc/edge.daily using a text editor. Comment
out the entry referencing the trap.
trap '' 2
Should now read:
# trap '' 2
This will disable the trap, and allow edge to run in foreground.
Doing this will also allow you to have the scripts read in any
changes & entries to make to /etc/edge.exclude & /etc/edge.raw.
To run a Master Backup using this method, type the command line:
/etc/edge.daily -MB -n root -d /dev/tty
To run an Incremental, type the command line:
/etc/edge.daily -IB -n root -d /dev/tty
