Hi Schlomo, all
you said you'd be happy about improving the documentation. I couldn't
find something like this.
Installation on Ubuntu 14.04
Chose a directory
Install all dependencies
aptitude install git mingetty gpart make fakeroot debhelper syslinux
ethtool portmap genisoimage iproute gawk attr
git clone https://github.com/rear/rear.git
Change to rear
Make a deb file
Change to its location
dpkg -i rear_1.17.2-1_all.deb
Edit the configuration
In case NFS is used
aptitude install nfs-common
Do rear -v mkbackup for example.
This worked with a domU (Xen guest) as well!
Hope that helps.
