I've updated the package to prevent overwriting specific config files in "/etc/burp".
See "" for more info.
So far it's configured to avoid overwriting the files below. Let me know if there are other files that need to be added to this list.

@PLum, It compiles well for me now. Thank you very much for adding "libsync_fix.patch".

Will try to fix it - but for me that was no problem cause I don't use burp
I created this package - when I searched for some backup solution.
But finally I ended using own rsync script and rsnapshot tool

Maybe You want to maintain this package ?

Thanks, all is working normally again, with an updated librsync this time. :-)
One remaining question: Updates (and reinstalls) completely reset /etc/burp. Can you fix that? Needing your broken backup program to fix your broken backup program would be a bit of a pain. ;-)

patch from
fix issue - please check it ;-)

Some postponed testing further: burp-backup doesn't build properly against librsync-1.0.0-1 on an otherwise pristine and up-to-date Arch install. When using librsync-0.9.7-7 it does work.
Aura doesn't complain but leaves me without /usr/bin/bedup, /usr/bin/burp and /usr/bin/vss_strip. Building manually generates errors and gives the same result.

Thank you very much for packaging the excellent burp-backup software. Recently now I've been getting the following compile error when using yaourt -S burp-backup:

FYI: burp doesn't work with the new librsync 1.0.0-1

And now I know why: :-)
