Backing up with INNODB disabled fails

Our mysql instance has INNODB disabled, and we only want to use innobackupex to backup our MyISAM databases. However, fails with the error “no ‘innodb_log_file_size’ option in SHOW VARIABLES”. In fact, the variable is specified in my.cnf, however I assume MySQL doesn’t show innodb_ related variables if INNODB is disabled.

Is there a way to run innobackupex when the mysql INNODB engine is disabled?

Thanks in advance.

Never mind… I read through innobackupex and it just uses cp or rsync to copy MyISAM tables anyway, so I might as well save the overhead and call them directly.
