Good news everyone: As of release 5.0.2, veeamsnap (and the veeam agent by extension) support Linux kernels up to and including 5.16. The AUR build has been updated to use the new 5.0.2 source and I have tested on my own machine on 5.10 LTS. Snapshotting works as it should.

Thanks!

Just try it ColdBrew. It cannot get worse ;)

It's a shame this is flagged, I'd love to help but I'm a novice to building packages!

Hello. 6.1.0.1498 is out with support for kernel versions up to 6.6. Tested it with 6.1 LTS and it worked fine. One note - libraries from 'veeam' package are now in a separate one called 'veeam-libs'.

Hello. Looks like initial 6.x versions were indeed unstable on various configurations to some extent, however I've recently tested 6.0.3.1221 release with the current Arch Linux LTS kernel (6.1.39 as of this moment) and it was a success. As @adlerweb said previously veeamsnap should now be replaced with blksnap. For source RPM files "el9" releases can be used.

Current 6.0.0 seems to fail with some configurations. On my arch system all jobs failed due to "BIOS boot partition size exceeds limit" - even tho I only use folder level backup without snapshots. My boot partition is a 512M RAID1 spanned over two disks.

Old 5.0.2 is still available, you can downgrade using the archived PKGBUILD (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/?h=veeam&id=289c6d2cc44718d7a633059b4b8acab540217915). Configuration database in /var/lib/veeam/ can not be downgraded and must be restored using a pre 6.x backup or deleted and jobs reconfigured.

Additionally: 6.0 now uses blksnap instead of veeamsnap, so deps might need updating: https://github.com/veeam/blksnap

5.0.1.4493 pkgrel should be '1'

theokonos commented on 2021-10-08 14:19 (UTC)

Updated to 5.0.1.4493. Please cleanbuild to avoid sha256 checksum issues.

Note, veeam is working on experimental support for kernels above 5.8 and this is supposedly working -- however this package will remain on stable release for the time being.

If anyone is interested in packaging the experimental build and making a new AUR listing, please feel free: https://github.com/veeam/veeamsnap/issues/10

theokonos commented on 2021-08-14 13:53 (UTC)

@k0ste -- good catch, thanks! The URL's been updated. For some reason I thought the veeam repo was only available over http.
