I see now, the group amandabackup has to exist during package creation
otherwise amdump and such doesn't get the correct group set

magnade commented on 2017-06-26 21:25

the commands to move existing user over
groupmod -n amandabackup amanda
usermod -l amandabackup amanda
usermod -d /var/lib/amanda amandabackup

I'm seeing
-bash: /usr/bin/amdump: Permission denied
when trying to run amdump from the new user

magnade commented on 2017-06-26 21:14

should the package deal with renaming existing user?

Complete revamp. Some breaking changes. Let me know where I've gone too far.

Disowning this package as I do not use it any more.

Bump to 3.3.9

Thanks for pointing that out. Some binaries got installed to /usr/sbin/ which I've fixed in 3.3.7p1-2

The package is broken:

amanda: /usr/sbin exists in filesystem

fukawi2 commented on 2015-09-16 00:12

Bump to 3.3.7p1-1 and big cleanup of the PKGBUILD to make it simpler. Please report any problems.

Thanks for flagging. It was updated in June due to the AUR4 migration. I will update now; it may take longer than normal due to the --asroot option being removed from makepkg.
