Re: Re: Dirvish for backups. No unslung package, why?
I've just installed BackupPC (backuppc.sf.net) at work, and I'm wondering if it will just work on the slug
too - it's also just perl scripts and ssh/rsync.

Well after reading some more about Dirvish I saw it is just a set of
scripts. So I installed the prereq Perl modules and then installed
dirvish. And although I have only got it to work so far locally on the
Slug, it does actually work OK. My problems concern using SSH as the
transport from the remote machines, and Dirvish itself. But I may get
a chance to work on them this weekend.
