Hi PJO,

thanks for choosing sbackup and asking this question.

Q: Is there a repository from which 0.11.4 can be installed?

A:
Yes, there is a PPA here: https://edge.launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team/+archive/ppa
Updated packages for release 0.11.4 will be available within the next couple of days. If you are not affected by one of the fixed bugs, you can safely install 0.11.3 and update later.

Q: What is the right way to install this version?
There is no right way. You can install it from source as described in the Readme/INSTALL file or you can install it from PPA. If you are unsure I would suggest to install via Synaptic using our PPA.

Hope this helps.

Thank YOU for reviving this great little program. I used to use it and stopped when some Ubuntu upgrade broke it -- over a year ago, I don't remember exactly when. I didn't know until today that it had been rescued.

I installed via the repository using apt-get and got the previous version; wasn't sure if that ppa was open to all. I'll just wait for the regular ppa to be updated then.

Thanks again.

Do you guys know if it is possible to set compression to none on older versions somehow?
Also what is the way to install the latest version in an older ubuntu 8.04?
I need to get copression turned off somehow.

Thanks
