BackupPC install probelm on fc5


I am trying to install BackupPC (apparently BackupPC-2.1.2-6.fc5.noar)
via:
yum install BackupPC
no problems/error during that phase,

but I can not find configure.pl as part of the installed files.
What am I doing wrong?

hence, I downloaded the configure.pl file (from sf.net),
and tried to run it, but I got:
"BackupPC cannot find the package BackupPC::Lib, which is
included in the
BackupPC distribution. This probably means you did not cd
to the
unpacked BackupPC distribution before running configure.pl, eg:

cd BackupPC-__VERSION__
./configure.pl

Please try again."


what am I doing wrong?
how can I install & config. it ?
is there any detailed installation procedure for Fedora (fc5)
out there ?
sites too lean :
- fedoranews dot org/blog/?p=603
- www dot enterprisenetworkingplanet dot com/netos/article.php/3609831 (part 1-3)
- sourceforge dot net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_id=503
(read-only for unknown reason, although I login)
- fedoranews dot org/blog/?p=603


my machine: fc5 onto amd64 (Foxconn 6100M2MA)

many thanks in advance

As root in terminal

If you dont find the file in some backuppc related directory, then most likely package has not installed properly.
BTW did you check the applications menu? or run "backuppc" in terminal ?

# well, after remove and reinstalling via yumex,
configure.pl is located in:
/usr/share/BackupPC/lib/BackupPC/configure.pl

# and the rest of the installtion resides in (selective dirs):
/etc/BackupPC
/etc/BackupPC/config.pl
/etc/BackupPC/hosts
/etc/httpd/conf.d/BackupPC.conf
/etc/logrotate.d/BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/init.d/BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K35BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K35BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K35BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K35BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K35BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/K35BackupPC
/etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K35BackupPC
/usr/share/BackupPC
/usr/share/BackupPC/bin
/usr/share/BackupPC/doc
/usr/share/BackupPC/html
/usr/share/BackupPC/lib
/usr/share/BackupPC/sbin

/usr/share/doc/BackupPC-2.1.2/ChangeLog
/var/lib/BackupPC
/var/lib/BackupPC/conf
/var/log/BackupPC

# is it a normal and good installation?

# I keep getting :
"
[root@fedora BackupPC]# pwd
/usr/share/BackupPC/lib/BackupPC
[root@fedora BackupPC]# ./configure.pl

BackupPC cannot find the package BackupPC::Lib, which is included in the
BackupPC distribution. This probably means you did not cd to the
unpacked BackupPC distribution before running configure.pl, eg:

cd BackupPC-__VERSION__
./configure.pl

Please try again.

# OR:
"
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# pwd
/usr/share/doc/BackupPC-2.1.2
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# /usr/share/BackupPC/lib/BackupPC/configure.pl

BackupPC cannot find the package BackupPC::Lib, which is included in the
BackupPC distribution. This probably means you did not cd to the
unpacked BackupPC distribution before running configure.pl, eg:

cd BackupPC-__VERSION__
./configure.pl

Please try again.
"

# Trying to run backuppc:
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# backuppc
-bash: backuppc: command not found


# from where should I run configure.pl?
# maybe the value of one of my system variables is wrong?

thnx

backuppc installation using its rpm, presumably problem

finally I un-installed the backuppc rpm package which installed via 'yum install BackupPC'

- downloaded the 'BackupPC-2.1.2.tar.gz' and 'BackupPC-2.1.2pl2.diff' files,
- then
[root@fedora DL]# pwd
/home/hag/Desktop/DL
[root@fedora DL]# ll
total 360
-rw-rw-r-- 1 hag hag 7732 Oct 28 13:26 BackupPC-2.1.2pl2.diff
-rw-rw-r-- 1 hag hag 354599 Oct 28 13:24 BackupPC-2.1.2.tar.gz
[root@fedora DL]# tar -xvzf BackupPC-2.1.2.tar.gz
BackupPC-2.1.2/
.
.
[root@fedora DL]# cd BackupPC-2.1.2
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# cp ../BackupPC-2.1.2pl2.diff .
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# pwd
/home/hag/Desktop/DL/BackupPC-2.1.2
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# patch -p0 < BackupPC-2.1.2pl2.diff
patching file bin/BackupPC_tarExtract
patching file lib/BackupPC/Lib.pm
patching file lib/BackupPC/Xfer/RsyncFileIO.pm
patching file lib/BackupPC/Xfer/Tar.pm
patching file conf/config.pl
[root@fedora BackupPC-2.1.2]# perl configure.pl
.
.

and move forward installing and configuring BackupPC .


was it a BackupPC-2.1.2-6 rpm's problem ?
