I don't know if it's a good place for this message but you speak about Mac and Gentoo and I have an issu with apple stuff, may be you will have some suggestions...

Subject: Very simple I would like to use Time Capsule to backup some Linux (gentoo), Mac and Windows.

Mac and Windows: No pbs

Linux: When I tried to use CIFS (windows shared, see Samba) it's works except if I tried to transfer some big files. It's generated some errors and the files are corrupted. If I tried to used "rsync" it's doesn't work the symlinks are not supported. It's will be better too use ssh but Time Capsule doesn't offer this option.

Any suggestions?

Can you explain better what you try to achieve?

maybe u can try rsync from macports.

Time Machine only works with HFS filesystem, either an USB/FW external drive formated with HFS+ or Time Capsule.
Because it backup metadata and special file attributes from HFS, as I have read.

For a Mac, may be... but not from a Linux :)

I found a way to backup the Linux:

1 - Installed afp-ng
2 - Installed truecrypt
3 - Configured Time Capsule to enable ethernet connexion (ex ip for Time Capsule 100.100.100.1)
4 - mounted Time Capsule like this
Code:
mount_afp afp://<user>:<volpassword>@100.100.100.1/<Capsule Name> /mnt/capsule

5 - Created a virtual encrypted disk with truecrypt on /mnt/capsule/linuxbackup.tc
6 - Mounted virtual encrypted disk
7 - Formated virtual encrypted disk (you ca choose any file system)
8 - Executed rsync to backup your configuration

Like this I can used Time Capsule to backup Linux computer and the backup is encrypted.
