Another bit of information:  I had sbackup on my system and that was
working ok.

When I first installed nssbackup, I did so by downloading and installing
using 'make install'.  When it did that, I was getting the same
behavior.  That's when I read through the information and re-installed
using Synaptic.

Sbackup was removed when installing through synaptic.  Could there be
some conflict with something left over from sbackup?

[Nssbackup-team] [Question #62529]: why conflict with sbackup?

2009-02-27 Thread Anton
New question #62529 on NSsbackup:
https://answers.launchpad.net/nssbackup/+question/62529

Wanting for more sophistication, I want to try using nssbackup in stead of 
sbackup. (I've also joined the dev team to speed things up, since it all looks 
very promising).

However, sbackup currently seems slightly more stable and reliable. I'd 
therefore like to use sbackup, while working on nssbackup.

THis isn't possible when using the deb packages, due to nssbackup giving 
conflict with sbackup.

So, the question is, why is this listed as a conflict? Are there really things 
that are incompatible between them? I know nssbackup is intended to replace 
sbackup, but should that not be up to the users (or distro builders) to decide?

[Nssbackup-team] [Bug 185167] Re: It lacks a special Notebook feature

2009-02-27 Thread Anton
Meanwhile, you may consider an alternative. You can put an 'autorun'
script on the USB stick that launches the backup. I've done that on my
external disk, but that one only runs the backup config, so I can push
'make backup now' (that was actually still using sbackup). Presumably,
you could likewise start the whole backup process in the background.

(One caveat comes from Gnome's security features. You will *always* have
to click 'yes' on two different notice windows to actually run the
autorun script.)

As to TimeMachine, I've started using TimeVault that does similar
things. It can write to an external disk, and IIRC it will gracefully
stop and re-start when the volume is removed and re-inserted. It's still
in beta phase (0.7.3 now), but already seems to work quite stably. It's
in the Ubuntu repo.

(by the way, there isn't anything particular to notebooks about this
feature...)

[Nssbackup-team] [Bug 330646] Re: No desktop notifications when running NSsbackup as superuser

2009-02-27 Thread Jean-Peer Lorenz
Aparently this is related to suspend/hibernate. The notifications daemon
looses the connection after a certain period of time. But it is really
hard to reproduce. For me it works the most of the time. And if the
issue isn't present it is difficult to implement a fix or workaround.
Due to this facts I believe this is likely not being fixed in 0.2.0.
