Bacula is a set of computer programs that allow you (or system administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds.In technical terms, it is a network based program.Bacula backup is relatively easy to use and efficient, while offering many advanced storage management that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files.Most the Bacula source code has been released on a slightly modified version of the GPL version 2 license. If you want additional details, please follow the link for your left.Requirements: · Bacula has been compiled and run on RedHat Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. • It requires GNU C + + version 2.95 or higher to compile. You can try with other compilers and older versions, but you are yourself. We have successfully compiled and used Bacula on RH8.0/RH9/RHEL 3.0/FC3 with GCC 3.4. Note, in general C + + GNU is a separate package (eg RPM) of GNU C, so you need them both loaded. On RedHat systems, the C + + compiler is part of the gcc-c + + RPM. § There is a third-party packages that Bacula needs. Except for MySQL and PostgreSQL, they can all be found in the depkgs and depkgs1 releases. · If you want to build the Win32 binaries, you will need a Microsoft Visual C + + compiler (or Visual Studio). Although all components build (console has some warnings), only the devil who has been tested. · Bacula requires a good implementation of pthreads to work. This is not the case on some BSD systems. • The source code was written with portability in mind and is mostly POSIX compatible. Thus, porting to any operating system POSIX should be relatively easy. • The GNOME Console program is developed and tested under GNOME 2.x. It also works under GNOME 1.4 but this version is obsolete and no longer maintained. wxWidgets • The console program is developed and tested with the latest stable ANSI (not Unicode) version of wxWidgets (2.6.0). It works perfectly with Windows and GTK + 2.x version of wxWidgets, and should also work on other platforms supported by wxWidgets. • The pan Monitor program was developed for GTK + -2.x. It needs Gnome less or equal to 2.2, KDE greater or equal to 3.1 or any window manager to support the system tray standard FreeDesktop. · If you want to enable line editing and command history, you will need to have / usr / include / termcap. h and either the termcap or ncurses library loaded (libtermcap-devel or ncurses-devel). · If you want to use DVD as backup media, you will need to download and install the dvd + rw-tools.
