Updating this in the hopes that I get some dialog. I fixed it. I found a tutorial on creating a live cd in debian, put the binaries I got from here in there. I’ll link to that later. I added a few packages and it worked. Basically it boils down to having an older kernel in for the restore cd. How often is this updated? Is anyone doing it regularly. I wouldn’t mind. Maybe we could have a reproducible way for everyone to do it so you know there’s nothing slipped in there.
I still don’t know how to get urbackuprestoreclient compiled. I followed the compilation instructions but to no avail–probably did something wrong but it doesn’t look like it compiles it by default.
