Description:

The "KDE Disk archiver" (KDar) is a disk-based archiving and backup utility.

This is the eighth release in the KDar-2.0 series. KDar-2.0.7 fixes a bug in the command export -A option where archive extensions were not trimmed.

Peter Landgren has provided an update of the Swedish translation which corrects some misspellings.

Enjoy,
JB

If you have problems opening an archive, go to the encryption module of the main configuration dialog and make sure that the encryption type matches the one used to create the archive (i.e. "none", or "blowfish").

Encryption detection will be automated in a future KDar release.

See the Changelog for details.

KDar-2.0.7 requires dar-2.2.x or greater (libdar 3.0.x)(2.2.3 recommended) and at least kde-3.4.x (kde-3.3.x might work).

If you experience problems compiling, please check out the kdar-users mailing list archives first.
(kdar-users@lists.sourceforge.net).

The KDar-2.0.7 source is available at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/kdar

Cheers,
JB

Detailed description:

KDar is built around the "disk archive library" by Denis Corbin, and is analogous to the tape archiver shell command "tar", but is more suited for backups onto disk-based media, such as CD-R, DVD, Jazz, Zip, other hard-drives, etc.

KDar can perform full and differential backups with or without compression. Archives can be split to fit various media types.

A filtering mechanism allows you to select which files and directories to backup or restore, and which files to compress.

See http://kdar.sourceforge.net for screenshots, online documentation, and more info.




Changelog:

KDar-2.0.7:
-Fixed the command export -A option bug (#1293717)
-Swedish translation update (spelling fixes).

KDar-2.0.6:
- Fixed export command bug#1235759 (missing quotes on -c and -R switches)

KDar-2.0.5:
- Fixed bug#1190416, where progress window shows CDR for media type even when splitting archives is turned off.
- Updated Swedish translation courtesy of Peter Landgren.

oops. The last advice in there helped.
(make -f admin/Makefile.common cvs)

Didn't work as described for the "spacer" errors though, without the "cvs".

 libdar not found

The configure script complains

"checking dar/libdar.hpp usability... no
checking dar/libdar.hpp presence... no
checking for dar/libdar.hpp... no
configure: error: Install libdar development package."

eventhough the headers are installed (/usr/include/dar/).

Is there any configure option to specify the location?

Look at the contents of the config.log. (search for libdar.hpp). What are the details of the error?

Please move this discussion over to the
kdar-users@lists.sourceforge.net mailing list.

I prefer not to entertain "comments" like this. The mailing list is a more centralized place for these things, where hopefully more people can benefit from the discussion.

Thanks and Cheers,
JB

Install the bzlib development library. You can see what it is really happening looking into the config.log file... and if it happens to you the same as with me, the problem is due to the fact that it does not find a file called bzlib.h (or similar).

If you use Debian, the package you should install is libbz2-dev.

Hope this helps,

T.

 libdar

Hey,

Does anyone know where to get libdar? I can't find a download (i have search goolge for about an hour now). I've installed dar, but the configure tells me that it can't find libdar still. I have even tryed using the --with-extra-libs switch pointed at the libdar src dir from the dar install. Any Ideas or Links would be helpful.

Have a look at the kdar-users mailing list archives. You probably did not run "ldconfig" as root after installing dar.

 KDar-2.0.0 testing

 
 by jkerrb on: Jan 27 2005
 
Score 50%

Beta testers are needed to put KDar-2.0.0-beta2 through its paces as we prepare for the official release of 2.0.0.

KDar-2.0.0 has several new features, including a detailed progress dialog for archive creation, and the ability to cancel any archive operation cleanly and swiftly, without having to "killall kdar" from a shell. See the release notes and Changelog at the sf.net/projects/kdar website for details.

KDar-2.0.0-beta2 depends on dar-2.2.0_pre3. Both programs are in "testing" phase, so DO NOT USE IN YOUR PRODUCTION SYSTEM, and do not rely on KDar-2.0.0-beta2 for your critical backups.

KDar-2.0.0-beta2 can be downloaded at
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=96947&package_id=103671&release_id=299965

Thanks,

 Compilation error

I got a compile error right at the first file. It seems to me that this error occures, because of my GCC version, which is 3.4.3.

Here is the error I get:

 Nice, but...

 
 by CraigD on: Apr 4 2005
 
Score 50%

Nice app, but a few suggestions:

1. *Please* give all dialogs parents! Its silly when a messagebox gets a taskbar entry! (For example, configure shortcuts and configure toolbars appear as top-level windows, and can be minimized - but when they are, KDar is not usable)

2. Your config dialog seems to be a Qt one, and not a KDE one. It'd be better to use KJanusWidget, KDialogBase, KPushButton, etc. to get a better KDE look.

3. Fonts. Is it really necessary to be able to configure these?

4. Is it possible to exclude directory patterns? For example I'd like to exclude .libs and .deps wherever they're located.

Sorry to be seento complain, but they're only minor points...

Hi,

1. *Please* give all dialogs parents! Its silly when a messagebox gets a taskbar entry! (For example, configure shortcuts and configure toolbars appear as top-level windows, and can be minimized - but when they are, KDar is not usable)

--> Hadn't noticed. I'll look into it.

2. Your config dialog seems to be a Qt one, and not a KDE one. It'd be better to use KJanusWidget, KDialogBase, KPushButton, etc. to get a better KDE look.

--> Yeah, I'm working on this. See the News items at kdar.sf.net. There are some screenshots of recent development work there.

3. Fonts. Is it really necessary to be able to configure these?

--> Yes :). For example, I can't stand being able to print from a program's window and be stuck with something that might look great on screen (big letters, say) but takes up tons of paper to print. If you don't like it, ignore the option. If you have an alternative that solves that issue without font configuration, I'd love to have it.

4. Is it possible to exclude directory patterns? For example I'd like to exclude .libs and .deps wherever they're located.

--> It's broken, but is ostensibly a feature. Please file a bug report.

Sorry to be seento complain, but they're only minor points...

--> Are you kidding? That's how free software gets better, in large part to active users like yourself! ;)

Cheers,
JB

P.S. Feel free to contribute to the KDar developers or users mailing lists, so others who follow those lists, but not necessarily this one, can comment too. Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply! As to the fonts, fair enough! Just looks a bit overkill for a backup solution - but no real issue.

Another little niggle: KDE uses the term "Folder" and not "Directory" (since 3.3 I think).

If I get the time, then I'll update to the CVS version and send some patches - but dont hold your breath. (Screenshots look like a massive improvement)

Thanks for the app anyway. I've created a cron job to do automatic backups, and this'll be nice to use for restoring, checking, etc.

(As a feature request - perhaps KDar could create/edit/delete cron jobs?)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
