The Fedora Back in Time repository provides bup and accompanying applications for Fedora.


Head over to the project’s Copr page to get more in detail information. In short, you can run the following commands to enable the repository and install bup:

dnf copr enable mhoeher/bup
dnf install bup

In addition, the repository provides kup, a graphical user interface for bup for KDE 5. Install it by running:

dnf install bup-kup

Reporting Issues

If you find any issues with the packages installed from the fedora-bup repository, please feel free to report this in our bug tracker. Keep in mind that we are - in this case - just packaging existing software for Fedora. In case of bugs in the software itself (vs. bugs in the packaged software), we might have to report this against the upstream projects.

Building the RPMs on your own

If you are interested in building the RPM packages on your own, feel free to head over to our GitLab repository and clone the required specs from there. In the project’s README, you will also find some information on how to get started on this.
