I have backuppc running on Centos5.6 machine.  I am backing up another Centos 5.6 machine.
I keep getting the following in the error log:
rsync: readlink "/proc/1/task/1/exe" failed: Permission denied (13)

I am trying to exclude the whole /proc directory, how do you do that, i have gone into the Edit config section > Xfer > BackupFilesExclude and tried /proc,  /proc/*, and now im trying /proc/.  I don't see where to exclude a whole directory in the notes on
http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/faq/BackupPC.html
but i could be  missing it.  How do you exclude a whole directory?
/proc
/sys

BTW, you might also want to exclude /sys /tmp and /dev if /dev is udev based as most are nowadays.

Also you can look if you want your backup per partition instead of the whole tree.
