Installation successful, systemctl status bacula-fd successful loaded and running, but server (bacula-dir, 2nd maschine) can't connect to client (arch).
Nmap shows tcp port 9102 st up, but servers bconsole (status client arch) says no. By the way all other systems (non-arch) work fine, so i think my configuration is ok. I don't know why there is no respone from bacula-fd.

Anyone can successfully install bacula-fd?

It depends on tcp_wrappers, but its upstream URL can not be reached.

When trying to install the build package I get the following error:

error: missing package metadata in bacula-7.0.5.tar.gz
error: 'bacula-7.0.5.tar.gz': invalid or corrupted package

Oh and configure flags haven't changed, tcp_wrappers were always enabled.

Thanks for the patch, georgnix. Tweaked it slightly, let me know if there are problems.

Download the AUR tarball, extract, download the patch, then
$ patch -p0 < 2015-03-04-PKGBUILD.patch
$ makepkg
Install the relevant packages with pacman.

@georgnix, I see you wrote a patch that might address my problem.

After installing bacula on server, when I try to run bacula-dir, I get
bacula-dir: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If you patch solves it, then how do I apply it? I have no idea how to do it.

@AlD Did you change the configure flags since 7.0.4?
Suddenly bacula daemons respect /etc/hosts.allow which I had to find out the hard way
bacula-dir -d 10000 ... also gives every config lexer token ... *YUCK*

Does anybody use tcp wrappers? I don't and would be happy if this would be removed from the build. There are firewalls these days...

# Patch for bacula AUR package.
# Date: 2015-03-04 Georg Altmann <>
# 1) Create working directory on install.
# 2) Install with the current version in the filename instead of
# 7.0.3
# 3) Make bacula-dir-* backend packages conflict with each other: They install
# the same file/symlink ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/libbaccats-${pkgver}.so

@khouli: Remove all of teh bacular-dir-* from the PKGBUILD and install them one-by-one if you need them.
