The problem here is that in my ubuntu desktop pc, the repositories contain the latest rdiff (1.2.8), but in my debian server, the repositories contain v1.2.5. I get an error that the versions are different, therefore I need to compile v1.2.8 in debian myself and I have really no idea how to do that.

Can anyone help me?



See rdiff-backup package version / debian release. You can see that 1.2.8-6 is available since squeeze.

If your server is running lenny, maybe it would be a good idea to upgrade to squeeze (see this blog entry or look on Google). If you can't upgrade, try to compile rdiff-backup from source and manage the resulting binaries within /usr/local.
