HOWTO Use Ubuntu As A Mac OS X Time Capsule

Preface:

In past versions of Mac OS X, the built in backup tool, Time Machine was a lot less picky about where you back up your files to. You could even back up to a Samba file share if you enabled the “unsupported volumes” hack.

Now, with Mac OS X 10.8 “Mountain Lion”, it’s gotten to the point where essentially the only places you can back up your system using Time Machine are either on another Mac OS X File Server or on an Apple Time Capsule. My assumption is that their intent is merely to bolster their hardware sales.
