Hi @DrMartinus, thank you for your input. I'm attaching a quote from dar website. Please report this issue upstream.


In option you may also have installed the following tools and libraries: librsync for delta binary

I just installed it (again, after a new setup of my PC), and wanted to run a local incremental backup, and I got an error:

dar: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So the librsync library is not optional, even for basic functionality it is required. I'm not sure what "delta binary" means here. I downloaded and installed the package provided from here.

Okay, I tried just ./configure, make, and make install by hand without the help of AUR and I still can't connect to remote repository for performing backups using dar because libcurl is disabled during the compilation time. I do have libcurl in Arch Linux. curl is version 7.79.

I would like to see libcurl enabled during the compilation time so that I can connect via sftp to perform a backup.

 $ dar -R ~/ -c sftp://gpeddie@storageserver/home/ldapusers/gpeddie/backups/backup-20211025.bak
Final memory cleanup...
Aborting program. The requested operation needs a feature that has been disabled at compilation time: libcurl library

In PKGBUILD, I would change:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-dar-static --disable-static --disable-upx --disable-build-html ${EXTRA_OPTIONS}

I think the only way to do that will be to compile dar by hand so I can get libcurl support.

I wasn't aware of KDE Ark, but I have tried dargui with spotty results.

nyarna commented on 2021-08-24 12:33 (UTC)

@Aaron-xn There is and also KDE's Ark can open them if dar is installed.

@Aaron-xn I'm just packaging, please report your ideas upstream. I'm not aware of any gui, I'm using dar on servers.

Aaron-xn commented on 2021-08-18 16:33 (UTC)

I would really love to have a GUI for my dar archives. :) Just say'en.
