[SOLVED] package `proxmox-human-byte` - where it is coming from

Hi, thinking about building pbs backup client for debian trixie.

Currently I'm toying a bit with proxmox-backup cargo.toml, and it is not yet clear to me, where is coming package "proxmox-human-byte" from?

Am I missing out something?


cargo fetch --target x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
error: no matching package named `proxmox-human-byte` found

Thanks, build at trixie worked.

At the end, after careful consideration of effort needed to "maintain"* (not yet) supported distro I went with official deb package containerized in apptainer container (with supported Debian inside).

So far backup and restore tested on Centos7-like distro, looks fine.

For future visitors of this thread, here is github repo with few notes and container recipe: https://github.com/jose-d/apptainer-proxmox-backup-client

*.."maintain".. mostly patch `cargo.toml`, check for human factor on our side, etc..
