[Elinux-discuss] How to create a bootable tar image like you did in your tutorial page?

I'm trying to create my own tar ball like you did here:


I have an sdcard with everything I want on it and would like to create lots
of copies.  mirroring it with dd is a bit slow.  is there a tutorial some
place?  I tried to create an image using tar.

 1) cd /media/blah/root 2) tar -cf ~/backup.tar * 3) mv backup.tar to
4) “sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdd --dtb beaglebone”

However the last command fails after a little bit.  I did some searching
and didn't find anything that looked appropriate.  Any hints?
