Here is another wierd one for you




Greetings all;

Stretch install from a LCNC respin with a preempt-rt kernel. amd64.

Since I can't get your (amanda-usrs list version) to install, and it 
locks out using synatic until I find another root shell and "dpkg -r 
amanda-server"

But it left me with the /etc/nut subdir being owned by amandabackup:nut, 
disabling nut so I can't talk to my ups. 

The only way that could have been fouled is trying to install 
amandabackup-server.  I can probably fix it, but this is rapidly getting 
to the point of to hell with it.

But I need a backup running, so I just installed the repos version 3.3.9, 
and am in the process of making it work with my helper scripts.

But they've changed the usrname to "backup" so obviously I've at least a 
megabyte of ownerships to change. Change just to be changing things is 
NOT PROGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

So as root I go to /
and
chown -R backup:disk /amandatapes
then as amanda:

What is this "drive0" BS?  Its not in any of _my_ configs. But it is in 
Daily/chg-disk and thats a new content file to me. And the 3.3.9 install 
seems to have overwritten mine from 3.3.7p1  And no man page. Screw it, 
I've beat my head on the wall since about 8 this morning. The original 
3.5.1 from zmanda's svn ran just fine for the last 2ish years.
