Re: can't b/u to Rackspace Cloudfiles with Pyrax backend

Hmm, I dunno why something would change for you there. And searching for that error comes up empty.

My best suggestion is to try the snap package, which does still bundle rackspace support in. The flatpak does

How do you have Deja Dup installed? Distro package, flatpak, or snap? What distro?

Hello List
I hope this is the best place to post - please point me somewhere else
I ran into these bugs a year or so ago:

I did 'pip install pyrax' after enabling legacy Rackspace Cloudfiles
backen and all seemed to work.

Just  a week or so ago, Deja Dup started throwing the same original error:
BackendException: Pyrax backend requires the pyrax library available
from Rackspace.
Exception: cannot import name _normalize_host

But, following the fixes in the above bugs, doesn't seem to be a fix
anymore.  Does anyone know what's changed and if it can be fixed?  Has
legacy become dead?  Is there alternative and if not... Does anyone
know how I can get my back-ups back from Rackspace Cloudfiles?
