Brief description of the issue: Since Ubuntu 18.04LTS (bionic) and Debian 10 (Buster), ReaR package is in distribution repositories, it should be integrated in installclient workflow.
Also an update to the upstream ReaR package URL's in default.conf is needed to install latest patched versions if needed on new OS versions.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
@NefixEstrada and I are doing the testing with rear 2.5 version in our local default.conf. Inside Release 2.3.0 branch, when done, will do testing to check which version is compatible for each distribution and also to modify the dependencies, then will be applied to master and develop branches.
In the case of Ubuntu 18.04 the ReaR version included in their repositories are ReaR 2.3 and there is an important issue for us solved in the 2.4 version :
In the DRLM specific function drlm_import_runtime_config() solve problem with some variables loading config from DRLM (rear/rear issue #1794
and in the case of Debian 10 will be released in mid-2019 with ReaR 2.4. I have statarted to working on it and I do not know if we will have enough time to include in this release if not in the next.
Hi guys, this would be good to get the rear versions to the newer version. As i've just successfully installed your latest git version on debian 9, but faced an issue with the current tagged version of rear 2.2 - seems to stop the backup process from working - the CLI_KERNEL is empty due to some sort of mounting issue further down the line in the version of rear 2.2?
Updating to 2.5.0 of rear fixes this issue - have set a pull request for debian 9, but maybe someone can test this on debian 10 or ubuntu?
@didacog Instclient workflow has been modified and standardized. Now Instclient installs ReaR package specified in default.conf file for all distos, but if you want to install from repositories you can use "-r/--repo" parameter. You can also continue using the parameter "-U/--url_rear" if you want use a diferent ReaR package.
I have tested in Debian[8-9-10], Centos[6-7] and Ubuntu [16-18] and works ok!
