I was about to install
urbackup-server via OBS repository on openSUSE Leap 15.2 aarch64 but I’ve noticed it wants to install 315 new packages. For example
What is that about? Something looks seriously messed up. Last time I’ve checked Ubuntu build for arm64 it was just a little bit better.
Are these extra packages added willy-nilly by a package manager or is it urbackup’s fault?
It’s because of libguestfs which it uses to mount image backups (I guess). Skip this dependency via “apt install --no-install-recommends” (or similar).
@uroni OK thanks. So without recommended packages it will install 5-10 instead of hundreds which looks a lot better
Is it safe in terms of server functionality? What am I loosing? Am I on my own if it starts to misbehave?
