Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: backuppc


It should be possible to create an archive using the above script.

This results in an error:
Error: /usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_tarCreate, compress or split failed

Steps to recreate:
1. configure an archive host through the web interface
2. run the script /usr/share/backuppc/BackupPC_archiveStart

Workaround is to specify the full path of the in the archive host's config file, for example
$Conf{ArchiveComp} = '/bin/gzip';
instead of:
$Conf{ArchiveComp} = 'gzip';
