An rsync-based backup solution for easy backups
Authored by: dashard on Sep 29, '08 08:06:19AM
Wanted to try, since I've lately been knee-deep in a Time Machine-type recreation of a client's backup strategy using rsync. The installer that the author very kindly put together, unfortunately, did not work, giving me an error every time I tried to run it. If you too get this error "Operation could not be completed. ( error -1.) -- Couldn't open "mlbackup r88.mpkg"." the simple workaround to a working install is to use Pacifist to open the .mpkg file, then once in Pacifist select the main installer and click the "Install" button. Worked for me. Testing now.

Do you have any more information on the problems with my installer package? Like the Logs from installer or anything that your system.log might have captured?

It's the first time I read that someone had a problem with the package so I'm interested if I can do something with the installer package to help, or if it is an isolated problem on your side.
Best regards
