Problem with rsnapshot - Please Help
- Hello there,
I am finding myself using my Slug for more and more things so I have
been trying to put an effective backup system in place with rsnapshot.
I've been following the guide here:
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/InstallRSnapshot. The latest
build includes perl and all the libraries I need as far as I
understand so it's just a case of setting up the config file and the
The trouble is that when I get to step 9 which is testing the
configuaration I do not get syntax ok. Instead I get the following
/opt/lib/perl5/5.8.8/armv5b-linux/auto/POSIX/load_imports.al did not
return a true value at /opt/lib/perl5/5.8.8/armv5b-linux/POSIX.pm line 15
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /opt/bin/rsnapshot line 48.
Here lies the problem. I have no idea what this error is and I have no
idea where to start to fix it.
For what it's worth POSIX.pm line 15 is:
load_imports() unless $loaded++;
and line 48 of /opt/bin/rsnapshot is:
use POSIX qw(locale_h); # setlocale()
I have tried re-installing perl and rsnapshot and it just says they
are both up to date and there is nothing to do. I have also recopied
the default config file and tried to test the config. No matter what I
do the same message appears.
Can someone PLEASE at least explain what this error is. I have looked
online with no success and gone through the rsnapshot manual. I really
need some pointers.
