Cannot get script to work on CentOS 5.1
I seem to be doing something wrong. Can anyone give me some guidance on what I should be doing to get the script to work on CentOS 5.1?
Obviously I do not have dar installed, or apt, and I was almost under the impression that it would work without those packages, but it does not. So please forgive me if I am asking in ignorance, but I cannot seem to determine how I might make the script work without installing those packages.
When I attempt to Install the script I tell it not to attempt to install dar or the noread, and then I get the following message:
Please check script Config, and try again
Null message body; hope that's ok
Thanks in advance for your help.
Dar installation on centos 5.1
Hi gang, newbie here with Zimbra and I am wanting to use this script. I've got dar-2.3.7 downloaded and running ./configure, it runs for a bit and stops.
checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS value needed for large files... unknown
checking for _LARGE_FILES value needed for large files... unknown
checking for an ANSI C-conforming const... no
checking for inline... no
checking for off_t... no
checking for pid_t... no
checking for size_t... no
checking for struct stat.st_rdev... no
checking whether sys_siglist is declared... no
checking for size_t... (cached) no
configure: error: Cannot find size_t type
Obviously, I can't even start tinkering with the script without dar so anyone have a tip here? I think I have everything installed that dar wants, I wish dar had a package for centos that yum would see...
Once I get this working, I think this looks like a great script! My /backup folder is a separate 250 gig disk in the server and I want to do a disaster backup and daily zimbra backups.
I read in one of these posts that the script is ubuntu and centos friendly now?
Any modifications I will need to still do besides the basics at the top of the script?
Thanks up front, Dave
