In June 2003, I tried to upgrade the packages to 2.4.4. I noticed that
the distribution *still* required the patches submitted to the
developers long ago by Manuel Bouyer
(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amanda-hackers/message/3176) in order to
function under NetBSD. I sent mail to the amanda-hackers mailing list,
and it was suggested to me to try the latest snapshot.
Even after the patches were applied and amanda was compiled and
installed, I ran into problems regarding MORE_TAPE or some such (sorry,
don't have the error message any longer).
Since I couldn't keep my systems without a properly functioning backup
solution, I eventually reverted back to 2.4.3b3, which worked fine.
(All this just FYI, for those who attempt to update the package. I
don't have any logs or other insights. Sorry.)
Of course it runs NetBSD! http://www.netbsd.org
