ERROR – Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Management Console install XRender

Problem

When trying to run Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 (e.g. from the desktop icon or from terminal), a popup window displays the following error message: “To be able to run Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Management Console install XRender Library on the machine.” Even when libXrender-0.9.1-3.1.i386 is installed.

Verified on:

  • Installation file: BackupRecoveryServerLinux.11345_s_en_.i686 (Acronis True Image Echo Server for Linux, Acronis Backup&Recovery Server for Linux Upgrade)
  • Kernel: 2.6.18-8.el5xen #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:42:21 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
  • XRender: libXrender-0.9.1-3.1.i386

Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Management Console install XRender

Solution

Acronis support says that the problem is related to the video modules that is used by their software and a fix will be available in a month (in February). Until then, it’s possible to use the trueimagecmd command line tool (see User’s Guide).
