VAL on Arch Linux - does it work?

Post by DanH » Jan 03, 2017 2:53 am

Hello Everyone,
Has anyone been able to get this working on Arch Linux?
From searching, it looks like a script debtap can be used to convert a .deb package to Arch Linux package.

Hi,

Please check this. Please keep in mind that Arch is not a supported OS, although agent should work fine with it.

Thanks

Hi Maximus,

For other visitors on this forum. Did you used the link that PTide gave you to make it work? Did you also do a restore as a test? I'm sure many others would like to have this information ;-)

Thanks
Mike

Yes, follow instructions from PTide's link. Once installed, I did a full system backup and then a couple of hours later a full system restore. It worked flawlessly!!! I'm using an NAS with NFS to store my backups. I actually had to do the restore because I manually upgraded to latest available kernel (4.9) and could not log back in.

On my system, I had to install kernel headers and an older kernel in order to build the veeam agent. Here's the commands I used:

Install headers for my current kernel (4.4.39-1-MANJARO)

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S linux44-headers
Install older kernel required by veeam agent

Code: Select all

sudo mhwd-kernel -l linux310
Follow PTide's link to install the agent: https://github.com/CodeImp/arch_packages
