Not a fully fledged GUI client, no.

What we might consider is producing a limited command line version of BuddyBackup for Linux.

That way you could set up "store only" Linux buddies that can recieve backups, but don't necessarily make them.

Actually, we might even be able to make a  full version of BuddyBackup, but without a GUI. i.e., could use interactive console instead of a fancy UI. Not sure how practical this is to use.

Anyway, our effort on this, depends on how much interest there is in this, so please add your feedback!

Regards,

John

I would very much be intrested in a full working version. I Don't need any fancy gui. But it would be nice if there was say, a config file where you could specify what directoryes/files buddybackup should backup (Decenting into directories ofc). And some way of telling the progress. Perhaps through an option to the cli/deamon.

First, thanks you for BuddyBackup. It's a great idea.

Let me add my vote for a linux client.

I think the main benefit is the ability for technical savvy users to setup a headless linux servers which will
provide 24/7 backup solutions for their buddies.
For this use case a command line client would be an
essential feature. Since linux can run on very limited
hardware, this could provide and energy efficient 24/7
backup server.

Add a vote for a Linux server implementation.
Only need a "store only" client. Config file, no GUI.

OK enough already guys ;-)

Right, we've started looking at this because it does seem like a really useful thing that people want.

We're going to aim for a "store only" buddy at first which will only allow incoming buddies to connect and backup to you.

But should all that go well, we'll then move onto a full (albeit console only) version of the software.

A GUI version for Linux users won't be available for the forseeable future (but you guys don't need GUIs right ;-) ?)

Could I get a couple of volunteers to try out the alpha version of this stuff when it's ready?

I'm willing to do an alpha test

My machine is a pogoplug running debian sid (kernel 3.0.0) connected through 2.5/0.5 Mb ADSL
