Mac Time Machine with Linux server

Finally, an easy way to have Time Machine accept a Linux server as a backup disk.

  • Upgrade to Ubuntu 10.4.
  • Install netatalk
  • Add option "tm" to a share in AppleVolumes.default config file.
No need to mess with
  • Manually created sparsebundles
  • Shoehorn settings like TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes
The key is to have netatalk version 2.0.5 or above.
