Client for Raspberry Pi


#1

I know that you can install the server on a Raspberry Pi which I have done for testing. I was wondering if anyone had any luck building the client on a Pi?

Thanks!

I too would like to use UrBackup for my 2 pi’s.
I have the server running on OMV (Debian server) and would love to include my pi’s as clients like my other machines.

Any info would be great.

If I get a chance, I will try and install it on an extra SD card in Rasbpian and see what happens, but if anyone knows already, please let me know.

Hi,

Urbackup client on raspberry pi works. I have him successfully in use on rpi 1, 2 and 3.

It should be noted that the / tmp directory is too small by default. please enlarge before.

Greetings uli

Hi dawys,
that is great to hear.

do you just install the linux binary? (https://www.urbackup.org/download.html#linux_all_binary)

"Install with:
TF=mktemp && wget “https://hndl.urbackup.org/Client/2.3.4/UrBackup%20Client%20Linux%202.3.4.sh” -O $TF && sudo sh $TF; rm $TF

"

or was there a different version that you used.

Is there anything else I should know about the setup?

Thanks for all your help

So it looks like that installs it just fine, but now i get an error when i try to add a backup directory.

Error:
sudo urbackupclientctl add-backupdir –path /
Assertion failed: Unsupported .eh_frame_hdr version (…/…/src/c++/libunwind/src/EHHeaderParser.hpp: decodeEHHdr: 62)
Aborted

Did you have this issue? I checked the forums, and found a topic (Unsupported .eh_frame_hdr version) but it doesnt look like it was ever resolved.

I will ask there as well, but if you have had this issue, and have a solution that would be a great help.

Thanks

Hi,

i have installed thema all with:

TF= mktemp && wget “https://hndl.urbackup.org/Client/2.3.4/UrBackup%20Client%20Linux%202.3.4.sh” -O $TF && sudo sh $TF; rm $TF

Also, sometimes I got the error message “Unsupported .eh_frame_hdr version”.
But not when adding backup directories

I compiled the source variant as workaround and then copied the urbackupclientctl to /usr/local/var/urbackup/
