LBackup is an open source (GNU GPL) backup system, aimed at systems administrators who demand reliable backups.

Use this project to build the .deb installer for LBackup.

In order to build an .deb installer follow the steps outlined below :

  • Ensure that you have checked out the version of lbackup core which you wish to build :
  • Ensure that you have the dpkg packaging tools installed on your system.
  • Ensure you are have super user privileges on your system.
  • Ensure that the "lbackup-core" and "lbackup_install_debian" share the same parent directory.
  • Execute the "build.bash" script and pass the script the version number for this build (eg: './build.bash 0.9.8r5')

You will be able to collect your tar.gz .deb installer and source files within the build_output directory which will be generated during the build process.
