Ubuntu NAS vs. OS X Lion 10.7

Today when I woke up my MacBook greeted me with very unpleasant alert:

The network backup disk does not support the required AFP features.

It turnes out that during the upgrade to Lion Apple used their newest set of commands that were not compatible with stable netatalk package in Ubuntu.
To get my network storage to work again I had to upgrade to the latest netatalk 2.2.beta4.

First download all needed files from Ubuntu’s repositories

wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/73070555/netatalk_2.2~beta4-1_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/74978789/libgcrypt11_1.5.0-1_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/75629511/multiarch-support_2.13-9ubuntu3_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/72120162/libgpg-error0_1.10-0.3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/74358655/libdb5.1_5.1.25-11_amd64.deb

Then install it:

dpkg -i multiarch-support_2.13-9ubuntu3_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libgpg-error0_1.10-0.3ubuntu1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libgcrypt11_1.5.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libdb5.1_5.1.25-11_amd64.deb
dpkg -i netatalk_2.2~beta4-1_amd64.deb

I’ve chosen to keep old version of configuration files, the only notable difference was that now afpd.conf lists -tcp -noddp options as defaults. I added them to my list. Quick restart of netatalk daemon and voila – Time Machine works again.
