I’m trying to install the client but getting failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.0.9.7 is needed by amanda-backup_client-3.2.0-1.suse10.0.i586
libcurl.so.3 is needed by amanda-backup_client-3.2.0-1.suse10.0.i586
libssl.so.0.9.7 is needed by amanda-backup_client-3.2.0-1.suse10.0.i586
Any idea where to find those files and how to install them?
I don’t have any problems installing Amanda version 2.6 from the openSUSE repositories, but I don’t see version 3.2. How did you install or try to install version 3.2? Also, the libs that mention suse10.0 for some reason which would bring into play just what repositories are you using with openSUSE 11.1? Here is where all the current repositories can be found:
Now I did not find the version of Amanda you mention, but version 2.6 loaded just fine and added two more packages called dump & star. Perhaps what you seek is located in a newer version of these two programs.
When I go into YaST and search Amanda, Amanda Network Disk Archiver pops up. Could I use that as the client to connect to my Amanda box?
So I am not the expert on using Amanda, but I would surely give it a try first. In the end, perhaps you should go to the source and see what documentation that they have on the subject says.
That was my first step. That’s how I got to here…lol.
On their website they only mention OpenSuSE 10 and nothing newer. But people here keep saying that they have amanda on opensuse 11.x just fine. When I go to Yast and search Amanda, Amanda Network Backup populates. It’s the only option there. I only need the client to be installed.
So far, I am not seeing anyone else jump in here with suggestions on using Amanda. Perhaps you need to ask what backup program is everyone else using in a new thread and get some suggestions known to work in openSUSE. Anyway that is what I would do if I were you. This thread is still open if a suggestion should come in for your original question.
The rpms that refer to suse10.x are the only rpms available for download on the amanda.org website. The openSUSE rpms really need to be updated to the 11.x series.
However, the latest amanda-3.2.0.tar.gz file can be downloaded. Once you untar it, search for subfolder named: /home/yourname/amanda-3.2.0/packaging/rpm/
Run the file “buildpkg” as regular user and it will create an rpm in your /home folder. What can you lose exept learning how to create your own rpms.
In addition, you can also install directly from amanda-3.2.0 .
