Debian surprises

At the start of this month I upgraded my last Debian Wheezy box to Jessie. I'd held out for ages, as it was my home server and had more on it than my BigV public server or my desktop systems.

There were two pain points in the end:

  • Mediatomb has been removed - so I installed a Debian Wheezy chroot and made it work that way, until I can devise a permanent solution.
  • rsnapshot stopped working. Actually it was working but it changed its flags and the way I have it implemented SSH needs to know exactly what's coming so it knows how to process the request. So just a small change to get that all working.

That's all my boxes, both real and virtual upgraded. I've also rebuilt my better half's desktop with a new motherboard & graphics card, so it's now got a significantly faster CPU and GPU, plus more RAM and a much faster main bus to play with. I even managed to freecycle the old motherboard, so that's a win all round.

If it is not too much work, could you provide a summary of changes needed for rsnapshot to work?

Rsnapshot not a problem, the changes were very minor. I'll try to post them here on this thread ASAP - currently suffering with a bit of the 'flu and spent yesterday in bed so it may be a day or so...!

Here is what I had to change:

Originally I had the ssh_args set with -o BatchMode=yes, but that no-longer worked or was required so I removed it.

Secondly I use SSH as root with a forced command, and the rsync command it executes changed slightly, which was only a problem because the command must match what the other system was expecting, so I just changed the flags that came over, but that probably isn't an issue for most people.
