Now I switched to:
rear -V:
Relax and Recover 0.0.692 / 2011-06-27 09:07:15 +0200

It is looking much better now, thank you for that hint.

Still, I am not able to run it without errors. When I did the "rear
recover" I get:
Disk configuration is identical, proceeding with restore.
No code has been generated to restore device pv:/dev/dm-0 (lvmdev).
Please add code to /var/lib/rear/layout/diskrestore.sh to manually
install it or choose abort.
1) Continue
2) Abort

When I choose 1) for all following existing lvmvolumes also, I will end
up with:
Please enter the password for cr_sda4(/dev/sda2):
Enter LUKS passphrase:

When I provide the correct password, I get:
Start system layout restoration.
Disk layout created.
ERROR: Could not source ´/mnt/local/etc/sysconfig/kernel´

In /tmp/rear.log I do have this entry which should be related:
line 16: /mnt/local/etc/sysconfig/kernel: No such file or directory
Trace: 17 Source

I guess I am getting this error since ReaR can't apply all config
settings. This is my /var/lib/rear/layout/disklayout.conf from the
system to be backed up:

I will provide more details if needed. I would love to get this
beautiful tool to work.
