    Question is star available to community version ?

    Hi !

    Is "star" (the alternative "tar" program which handle ACL) available to the community version of Amanda for openSuSE 10 ? (amanda-backup_server-2.6.0p2-1.suse10)

    My openSuSE has "star" installed (star-1.5a70-35) and amanda documentation says (well, in fact, the file /etc/amanda/template.d/dumptypes has several dump types using the directive: program "STAR")

    I am asking because if my disklist looks like:
    Code:
    localhost.localdomain  	srv	/srv			user-star
    then, amcheck return a error: (and amdump does not backup the affected DLE)
    Code:
    /bin/su - amandabackup -c "amcheck diario "
    Amanda Tape Server Host Check
    -----------------------------
    slot 5:read label `diario-5', date `X'.
    NOTE: skipping tape-writable test
    Tape diario-5 label ok
    Server check took 0.130 seconds
    
    Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
    --------------------------------
    ERROR: localhost.localdomain: service /usr/libexec/amanda/selfcheck failed: pid 10191 exited with signal 6
    Client check: 2 hosts checked in 1.114 seconds.  1 problem found.
    
    (brought to you by Amanda 2.6.0p2)
    but, if I change disklist to use "user-tar" instead everything runs fine.

    Am I missing something or what ?

    thanks for any comments,

    star is not available in community version of 2.6.0p2 images. You can use 2.6.1alpha images which supports star using Application API.
