I found one other user on the web who managed to install backuppc, but
he claimed that it ran too slow:
BackupPC can be somewhat memory hungry. The extra overhead seems to
come from running perl, openssh, and possibly bzip2 all at the same
time. I can see how it might overwhelm the nslu2's capabilities. I'm
not sure at this point whether I am going to install OpenSlug or just
Unslung, still trying to look at all the options.
Also, I was curious how hard is it to compile something like ftpcopy
This is definitely a package I would like to see in the repository,
and would be willing to test it and help set it up. I have a few
websites that I use ftpcopy to backup, so it would be a useful tool
