What is it?
iBackup simplifies backing up the system configuration files (/etc) for UNIX systems (Solaris, *BSD, Linux). You can run the program from any directory, it will by default save the (maybe compressed) tarball to /root. It is possible to encrypt the tarball, to upload the tarball to some other host

I just downloaded it and tried it out, but received some errors.

root@slackware/home/snocked/ibackup-2.27$ ibackup linux
Using /etc/ibackup.conf
which: no dpkg in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin)
which: no dpkg in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin)
Please wait while archiving linux (/root)...
tar: boot/grub/menu.lst: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: boot/grub/grub.conf: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Please wait while compressing linux...

My bootloader is lilo, not grub. I went to comment this command that involves looking for grub in the sysconf file, but it's not there. I was wondering if anyone else had used this program before, even though search yielded zero results.
