Thanks DebianJoe, fatmac & the3pun15h3r for a warm welcome. Only a few hours aware from have a #! fresh install on my main machine .... currently waiting for my alternate (i.e rsync) backup to finish
I'm looking for a cloud backup provider that uses rsync. I have used rsync.net for many years but their pricing model isn't keeping up with the rest of the market and I'm looking at several tens of gigabytes of storage.
I've been using Eric's KDE packages since last June or so, and have been using the same command the whole time to download them. But today I went to get KDE 4.4.5 for the fresh 13.1 install I just did on my wife's laptop and KDE 4.4.85 (hell, yeah!) for my -current box. In both cases the command returned the same error.
I have some servers and VPSs to many companies across the world. I want to back them up locally. I have some backup solutions enabled to remote hosts, but I want to have a local backup on a computer at home.
What I am thinking is:
Create a virtualbox virtual machine, install the same version linux as the server.
Use rsync to backup the server to the local virtualbox machine.
