I installed backuppc the other day, configured it and it works fine

logs and in the syslog and saw nothing suspicious. If I start it
manually with /etc/init.d/backuppc start, it works just fine. There are
also startup scripts in /etc/rc*.d/. My backuppc version is 3.2.1-2 (I'm
running a testing install).
Well, there are some packages that in addition to be installed have to be
configured to be run on booting. I mean, the fact a service is not
started by default cannot be considered a bug or error "per se".
Note that my /var/lib/backuppc directory points to
/removable/sbackup/backuppc which is my external USB HDD mounted by
autofs, which is in /etc/rc*.d/S21autofs (backuppc is
/etc/rc*.d/S21backuppc). After some investigation I found that adding
autofs in the Required-Start section of the insserv overrides of the
backuppc init script solved the problem.
So backuppc daemon is starting but fails because it cannot access to the
configured external USB hard disk? You can check the service status with
"service backuppc status".
Now I'm not sure how to report
the bug. Should I report it against autofs (so that autofs gets included
into $local_fs or in the mountall.sh script but these scripts have
nothing to do with autofs), or in insserv (again so that autofs gets
included into $local_fs, but insserv doesn't have anything to do with
autofs) or in backuppc so that the init script is modified (but again,
backuppc has nothing to do with autofs)?
Mmm, I would open a bug against the package it self (that is, backuppc)
to get some feedback from the package maintainers about this situation.
In principle (though I don't know BackupPC requirements in deep), it
should not require "autofs" by default (nor smb, nfs...) because there
can be people/installations not having that service even installed.
