 My first experience with rdiff-backup.

I try to backup a Novell file-server based on SLES 10 sp3 to a Ubuntu 10.04 server.

Rdiff-backup 1.2.8 installs on Ubuntu 10.04 without a problem.

I cannot make too large changes on the SLES-box.
There is no rpm-package for rdiff-backup on the SLES 10. When I download the tarball of rdiff-backup 1.2.8 and run "python setup.py build" it ends with a error about missing gcc.

SLES 10 uses Python 2.4. All modern rdiff-backup-rpm's I can find for SuSE depends on Python 2.6. The only SuSE-rpm I havefound, that depends on Python 2.4 is rdiff-backup ver. 1.0.4.

When I try to run a backup, it starts with a warning that version 1.2.8 does not match version 1.0.4. Then comes several screens of messages and nothing i backup'ed.

Any way's to get this to run without messing with gcc or python 2.6 on the SLES?
