Acronis True Image server/echo server on Ubuntu 8.04 with Parallels

As usual the trueimage files from Parallels/SwSoft don’t compile properly on linux.  More specifically the snapapi26 module.

Tried recompiling with:

apt-get install linux-source-2.6.24 build-essential linux-headers-2.6.24-24
cd /usr/src/
tar -xjf linux-source-2.6.24.tar.bz2
dkms remove -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.29 –all
dkms ldtarball –archive=/usr/lib/Acronis/kernel_modules/snapapi26-0.7.29-all.tar.gz
dkms build -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.29 –config /boot/config-2.6.24-24-server –arch i686 –kernelsourcedir /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.24

However, the build didn’t work and the snapapi26 module could not be installed.

The following URL links to a tarball which helps install the snapapi26 on Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10:
