I've just received a copy of Retrospect 6.5, and want to set up the client on a SuSE 9 box we have running here. However, as you can probably guess from my posting here, all is not working as smoothly as I'd hoped...
Regardless of whether I install the client RPM from the command line or via YaST, I get the same problem - the installer gets as far as asking me for the password (twice), and then, after it says "Starting client as daemon..." I get the following error messages -
/usr/local/dantz/client/./rpm-post-install.sh: line 144: /usr/local/dantz/client/rcl: Not a directory
Installation was successful, but Retrospect Client for Linux could not be started. If this is an upgrade, please wait 5 minutes, then start the client manually by running $ /usr/local/dantz/client/rcl start
After clearing this box, I can see that /usr/local/dantz/client/rcl is a link to /etc/rc.d/init.d/rcl, which doesn't exist on my machine. /etc/rc.d/init.d is a file rather than a directory, and is in fact apparently the script that retrospect is trying to call, as far as I can tell from the output of "/etc/rc.d/init.d start" followed by "/etc/rc.d/init.d status".
Is it as simple as this? I haven't got as far as using Retrospect to try and back up the client yet (it's an upgrade version, and the backup using the old version is halfway through running as a I type, so I've got to wait for that), but I'm just trying to get the ball rolling in case the problem is more serious...
Many thanks for any advice!
