Summary: Backup and Restore Application
Dar (Disk Archive) is a hardware-independent backup solution. Dar uses
catalogs (unlike tar),which it makes it possible to extract a single
file without having to read the entire archive. It is also possible to
create incremental backups. Dar archives can also be created or used
with the libdar library (for example, with KDar, a KDE application).
This package contains the command line tools and documentation.






* Mon Jun 07 2021 Ferdinand Thiessen <>
  - Update to version 2.6.15
    * fixed error message formatting error leading message to contain
      garbage in place of system error information.
    * fixing bug (internal error) met while trying restoring files and
      dirs without sufficient write permission on the destination
      directory tree to perform the operation.
    * adding minor feature to avoid restoring Unix sockets (-au)
    * fixing dar-catalogue.dtd
  - Update to version 2.6.14
    * fixed bug met when removing slices of an old backup located on
      a remote sftp server
    * fixed bug in cache layer met when writing sliced backup to a
      remote ftp or sftp repository
    * enhancement to the -[ and -] options to work as expected when
      "DOS" formatted text file is provided as a file listing.
  - Drop outdated Provides / Obsoletes, RPM will automatically detect
    new dependency of linking packages, as long as -devel package
    does not get renamed or packages use dlopen and manually require it
* Fri Dec 18 2020 Martin Pluskal <>
  - Enable curl and rsync support
* Wed Dec 16 2020 Paolo Stivanin <>
  - update to 2.6.13:
    - fixed compilation warning in testing routine (outside libdar and dar)
    - due to change in autoconf, the --sysconfdir path (which defaults to
      ${prefix}/etc) was read as an empty string, leading dar to look for
      darrc system file at the root of the filesystem (/darrc)
    - fixed bug that should occur in extremely rare conditions (it has been
      discover during 2.7.0 validation process): compression must be used,
      no ciphering, no hashing, file changed at backup time or had a poor
      compression ratio, was not saved at slice boundary, the previous
      entry had an EA saved but no FSA or an unchanged FSA. In such
      conditions are all met, dar tries to resave the file in place, but
      partially or totally overwites the EAs of the previous entry leading
      to archive testing to fail for these EA (though the archive could be
      finished without error).
    - fixed bug met when case insensitive mask is requested (-an option)
      and locale of file to restore or backup is not the one the dar binary
      is run with.
* Wed Sep 16 2020 Paolo Stivanin <>
  - update to 2.6.12:
    - fixed regression met in 2.6.11 when generating encrypted
    - fixing bug in dar_manager libdar part, met when the two oldest
      entries for a file are recorded as unchanged (differential
    - fixed typo in dar_manager man page
    - updated lax mode to ignore encryption flag found in header
      and trailer
    - fixed two opposite bugs in strong encryption code that
      annihilated each other, by chance
    - fixing bug met when merging an archive an re-compressing
      the data with another algorithm that gives a less good result,
      this condition lead the merging operation to fail
      reporting a CRC mismatch
    - improving archive header code to cope with unknown flags
* Mon Aug 17 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 2.6.10:
    - update the configure script to handle some undocumented --enable-*
      options that existed but were not expected to be used.
    - fixed spelling in darrc comments
    - fixed bug in dar_split that could occur in very rare conditions
    - fixed EA support build failure due to what seems to be a change
      in Linux kernel header
    - fixed symbol conflict with s_host of in.h on omniOS platform
* Wed Apr 15 2020 Luigi Baldoni <>
  - Update to version 2.6.9
    * too many changes to list, see ChangeLog file
  - Drop dar-use-libc-xattr.patch (fixed upstream)
  - Drop Group tag
  - Spec cleanup
* Wed Jan 24 2018
  - fix build for Factory
  - update to version 2.5.14
    (relevant parts from upstream)
    - made libgcrypt built-in memory guard be initialized before obtaining
      ligcrypt version, to respect libgcrypt usage (but no problem was seen
      nor reported about this inconsistency)
    - fixed syntax error in XML listing output (EA_entry and Attributes
    - fixed bugs in dar_split: cygwin support, filedescriptors were not
      explicitly closed at end of execution, allocating buffer on heap
      rather than in the stack for better size flexibility, avoiding buffer
      size to be greater than SSIZE_MAX.
    - added -s option to dar_split in order to disable the by default SYNC
      write that was used and which caused poor performance. To keep the
      same behavior as the older dar_split (and its poor performances) you
      need now using -s option.
    - dar_split enhancement: added call to syncfs before closing the file
      descriptor in split_output mode
    - fixed bug in dar_split that was did not lead dar_split to completely
      fulfill an device before asking for user to change the media when
      used in split_output mode, this was sometimes leading dar reporting
      file as corrupted at dar_split at media boundary.
    - added feature in dar_split to show the amount of data written since
      the last media change
    - added -az option to automatically nullify negative dates returned from
      the system in the archive under creation (filesystem is not modified)
    - included the birthtime (HFS FSA) into the negative dates handling
    - modified behavior: dar now fails upon unknown option instead of warning
      the option is unknown and thus ignored
    - fixed missing throw in tools.cpp (exception condition was not reported)
    - dar now aborts if a line exceeding 20479 bytes is met in a listing file
    - fixed bug in file listing (-[ option) leading some directories and their
      content to be excluded in a somehow rare condition
    - improved behavior when dar reads a negative date. Instead of aborting
      it now asks the user if it can substitute such value by zero
    - improved behavior when dar is asked to read an archive located in a
      directory that does not exist. DUC file passed to -E option is now
      properly run in that case too and has the possibility for example to
      create that directory and download requested file
    - minor feature: displays the archive header which is never ciphered and
      aborts. This feature is activated while listing archive content and
      adding the -aheader option. This brings the side effect to invert two
      lines in the archive summary (dar -l archive -q) "catalogue size" and
      "user comment".
    - adding date format info for -w option in "dar_manager -h" usage help
    - fixed several mistakes in tools.cpp leading compilation to fail under
      certain environments
    - fixed bug in the filtering mechanism relying on file listing (-[ and
    - ] options) that could not find an entry in the listing upon certain
      condition leading a file not being excluded as requested or not
      included as requested
    - fixed bug: -r option (only more recent overwriting policy) was
      considering a file to be more recent when it had the exact same date as
      the file in place.
    - updating documentation about requirements for compiling dar from sources
    - fixed bug: bug met when restoring of a file that has the immutable
      flag set. Dar/libdar failed restoring such file in the context of
      differential/incremental backup. The fix consists of the removal of the
      immutable flag from filesystem before restoring the new version of the
      file's data, then setting back the immutable flag afterward.
    - updating FAQ with description of the way dar uses lzo compression
      compared to the lzop program
    - fixed bug: aborting an archive was leading to an unreadable archive in
      direct mode, most of the time when strong encryption was used
    - minor new feature: added two flavors of lzo algorithm: lzop-1 and lzop-3
      in order to match compression levels 1 and 3 of the lzop command
    - fixed bug: merging operation could wrongly melt different unrelated hard
      linked inodes when merging using an archive which results from a previous
      merging operation.
    - fixed bug: aborting an archive was sometimes leading to an unreadable
      archive in direct mode (was readable only in --sequential-read mode)
    - fixed bug: libgpgme was only present at linking time of final binaries
      (dar, dar_slave, dar_xform, dar_manager, dar_cp, dar_split), not at
      linking time of libdar, which caused problem under Linux Rosa distro
      where the "no-undefined" flag is passed to the linker.
    - minor new feature: -ay option has been added to display sizes in bytes
      instead of the default which uses the largest possible unit (Kio, Mio,
      and so on.)
* Thu Mar 09 2017
  - Edited %files to clear unpackaged files builderror in

    (like -R option)
    * reactivating disabled (by mistake) optimization for some
    read-only dar manager database operations
    * fixing compilation issue with dar against gcc 4.9.2

    * fixed missing quote in dar_par.dcf which is called by the par2
    * fixed bug in dar_manager's -u option, not displaying most
    recent files of an archive when they have been marked as
    removed in a more recent archive of the same dar_manager
    * fixed bug met while restoring in sequential read mode a file
    having several copies (was modified at the time it was saved
    and retry-on-change was set).
