mhvtl

There is a bug (w/ebuild), but no official or sunrise version (that I noticed).

Works with a few tweaks. From bugs:
  1. Rename ebuild from mhvtl-2010-11-11 to mhvtl-2010-11-29 (the current mhvtl version as I write this).
  2. Rename the patches from 18 to 19: 0.18-etc.patch, 0.18-mhvtl.patch, 0.18-slab.patch
  3. mhvtl.init.d (no version).

  4. The patches & mhvtl.init.d go into a local portage repository: /usr/local/portage/sys-block/mhvtl/files/

  5. The ebuild creates the user vtl with the "next available" uid & gid. It also creates the user with the default shell. A shell seems to be required for the init.d script to work, so change it from /sbin/nologin if that is your system default.

The ebuild does not have reference to 0.18-make_vtl_media.patch. I tried with version at 19, and it failed.


I haven't done anything with it yet, but the ebuild works and init.d/mhvtl starts (seemingly with proper results). Neither have I tested the bacula patches. Haven't decided which backup solution to go with. Will update when I move on to that.
