    Amazing program, thanks guys!

  2. Jarod Liu says:

    Why not provide 32bit binaries

  3. Vadim says:


    We have limited resources from both time and servers prospective so we concentrate on things that can cover most needs. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the update! FWIW, I maintain binary RPM packages of xtrabackup for a number of distributions on the openSUSE build service. I just commited the update to 0.6, binaries should be available shortly from this URL:

    Vadim, in the future, could you provide the source tarball for download as well? I had to extract it from the source RPM this time…


  6. Vadim says:


    Sure I can do source tarball.

    Can we use openSUSE build to build packages for RHEL and DEB ?
    I currently do it manually :)
