4. Download rdiff-backup-1.1.16
5. python setup.py build --compiler-mingw32 bdist_wininst (seemed OK)
6. Installed the module
7. Run python rdiff-backup, then appear
error message: no module named grp.
I knew because user_group.py import grp and pwd. But in my system no such modules. Please suggest how to fix it.
Thanks for giving rdiff-backup a try under Windows. As you discovered, the current version still has some rough edges.
However, the latest version in CVS has four more Windows-specific fixes, including one for the very issue you encountered. Josh Nisly and Fred Gansevles have been hard at work on porting rdiff-backup to native Windows.
You can check-out the CVS version with this command:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden
:/sources/rdiff-backup co rdiff-backup
That should work for you! Please post
to the list if the CVS version gives you any problems.
