Installing BAT (Bacula Admin Tool)

Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10


<note tip>The Director, FD and SD are either with MySQL, PSql or SQLite installable via apt-get. Just type in apt-cache search bacula for all packages.</note>

Install necessary packages fpr qt4 and qwt. (Maybe not all of the following packages are necessary but by having a large harddisk I don't care.)

  • remove qt3 (if installed)
    • sudo apt-get --purge remove qt3-dev-tools qt3-designer libqwt-dev
  • install qt4
    • sudo apt-get install qt4-dev-tools qt4-qtconfig  libqt4-core libqt4-dev
  • install qwt
    • apt-get install libqwt5-qt4 libqwt5-qt4-dev 
    • make sure, that under /usr/lib the links to, if not create a symlink.
    • cd /usr/lib
      sudo ln -s
  • get the source
    • Get the latest source tarball, extract it and enter the directory

Build bat

  • install compiler
    • apt-get install build-essential 
  • configure
    • ./configure --enable-bat --enable-client-only --with-qwt=/usr/lib/
    • The result of the succesfull configure should show these lines:
      •   bat support:                yes -L/usr/lib64
          client-only:                yes
  • proceed to make
    • make install
  • install bat
    • sudo cp src/qt-console/bat /usr/sbin/
    • sudo cp src/qt-console/bat.conf /etc/bacula/
  • start it
    • bat -d99 -c /etc/bacula/bat.conf
