How to install duplicity on SUSE?

Asked by Rodrigo Alvarez on 2010-08-31

For unknown historical reasons we have a large box running SUSE 11 and we would now like to back it up with duplicity. Is there any straight forward way to install a current duplicity version?

Make sure you install needed packages first

python 2.4 or later
librsync 0.9.6+
gpg
ncftp (for ftp backend)
boto 0.9d+ (for s3 backend)

then download latest tgz from
http://duplicity.nongnu.org/
probably duplicity-0.6.09.tar.gz

wget http://code.launchpad.net/duplicity/0.6-series/0.6.09/+download/duplicity-0.6.09.tar.gz
tar xvf duplicity-0.6.09.tar.gz
cd duplicity-0.6.09/
python setup.py install

you might encounter errors, if you haven't gcc and friends installed. Do that and you'll be set.

good luck ede

PS: One of my duplicity installations runs flawless on opensuse 11.

These instructions worked perfectly. The only difference is that I ran the last step (python setup.py install) as sudo . Thanks!
