Amanda Version: ANY
Problem: If tar is installed and compiled from source code or installed using any other means other then RPM the amanda installation will not start

error: Failed dependencies:
       tar >= 1.15 is needed by amanda_enterprise-backup_server-2.5.1int7-1.sles9

Solution: Its important you verify what version of tar is installed and if this version is 1.5.1 or higher you can then force the amanda installation using --nodeps option:
Check tar version installed:

copper:~/tar-1.15 # tar --version
tar (GNU tar) 1.15

Force install amanda:

copper # rpm -ivh --nodeps amanda_enterprise-backup_server-2.5.1int7-1.sles9.i586.rpm
