    Ubuntu home Backup to Gentoo

    Hello, I want to try Gentoo. I'm curious about the compile-everything approach. I'm not a technician but I think I can install it.

    I'm now using Ubuntu and its backup software DejaDup to backup my /home. It is simple but works very well on Ubuntu. Can I use it on Gentoo? I suppose that can be insalled but I don't want to download tons of dependencies for install it. I prefer instead to install a different backup program on Ubuntu.
    Gentoo has a "default" backup tool? Which one do you use and works fine?

    Thank you!

    The allication " app-backup/deja-dup" is available within gentoo's repository.
    * app-backup/deja-dup
         Available versions:  34.0^t (~)34.1^t {debug nautilus test}
         Description:         Simple backup tool using duplicity back-end
    Which would mean that you would do:
    emerge app-backup/deja-dup
    It you decide to play with gentoo you should also install "app-portage/eix" (used to produce the above report) and "app-portage/gentoolkit" as well as it adds other packaging reporting tools as well.
