## kind rant
Client don't need all other services/servers hanging-around on system, more than it is all AUR deps. This package forces to install a whole everything that we can find of BareOS in Arch stack.
## /kind rant

Official Bacula documentation says:
"If the machine (they mean architecture, x64) and the Operating System are identical, you can simply copy the Bacula File daemon binary file bacula-fd as well as its configuration file bacula-fd.conf" - and install is already over, then goes manual configuration.

So, BareOS Client (File Daemon) needs only: binary, and /etc/bareos/bareos-fd.d/* configs.
In latest releases BareOS even simplified client, untying it from need of straight DB connection configuration.

As we install prebuilt package - clearly package bareos-filedaemon needs only itself.

Maybe I did't know or understand something.

It doesn't cancel thou, I am thankful that you provided me BareOS packages.

Hello all,

I am using all daemons of this package now as a backup solution. I am supporting it as I am actively using it.

eayin2: This package is not out of date. 15.2.2 is the latest official released package.

spradlim commented on 2016-05-10 01:21

Eayin2: I agree, I was just looking at middy's problem and this is how I fixed it.

Also to be fair, I haven't used the FD on Linux yet. I am getting to it. Finished my window clients first.

please change in PKGBUILD.common:

- bareos-filedaemon started with user bareos
- bareos user have not permission on directories /home
- as a result we have "Permission denied" erro when try backup /home directory

bareos-filedamon is configured with --with-fd-user=bareos and --with-fd-group=bareos. What is your problem?

muddy.muskrat commented on 2016-04-06 16:31

bareos-filedarmon must be configure with:
--with-fd-user= \

bareos user have not permissions for read most files in system

I have noticed this and updated my checksum before. I don't know why github is regenerating the compressed files. I need to change this to checkout the git repository.

Upstream updated the 15.2.2 release and re-uploaded it as a new 15.2.2 with no version change, causing the checksum to fail on 15.2.2.tar.gz. There are at least 8 commits included in this updated 15.2.2 tag that have been made since this package was updated to use 15.2.2 on Nov 21, so it's unclear to me if the 15.2.2 release is being continually updated or if this was a one time fix.

Having updated the checksum locally, everything appears to build fine.
