-archive of your lab directory}
-\section{End of the training session}
-Congratulations. You reached the end of the training session. You now
-have plenty of working examples you created by yourself, and you can
-build upon them to create more elaborate things.
-In this last lab, we will create an archive of all the things you
-created. We won't keep everything though, as there are lots of things
-you can easily retrieve again.
-\section{Create a lab archive}
-Go to the directory containing your felabs directory:
-cd $HOME
-Now, run a command that will do some clean up and then create an archive with the most important files:
-\item Kernel configuration files
-\item Other source configuration files (BusyBox, Crosstool-ng...)
-\item Kernel images
-\item Toolchain
-\item Other custom files
-Here is the command:
-At end end, you should have a \code{felabs-<user>.tar.xz} archive
-that you can copy to a USB flash drive, for example. This file should
-only be a few hundreds of MB big.
