Public bug reported: on Ubuntu 10.10, with sbackup 0.11.4 installed from ppa.
After having launched the (incremental) backup with the backup now option, it starts computing the delta and whatnot. About a minute later the daemon returns a gtk error message saying that the tar utility exited with an error code (which shoud be -11, according to the log). Tar is launched with this command: /bin/tar --gzip -cS --directory=/ --ignore-failed-read --blocking-factor 20 --totals --files-from=/home/myname/.local/share/sbackup/tmp/includes.list --exclude-from=/home/myname/.local/share/sbackup/tmp/excludes.list --checkpoint=858 --checkpoint-action=exec=/usr/share/sbackup/sbackup-progress --listed-incremental=/home/myname/.local/share/sbackup/tmp/files.snar >From tar docs: "If tar has invoked a subprocess and that subprocess exited with a nonzero exit code, tar exits with that code as well. This can happen, for example, if tar was given some compression option." So it may be a problem of gunzip, but I've tried also with bzip and it's the same. ** Affects: sbackup Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Simple Backup Maintainers, which is subscribed to sbackup. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/726054 Title: sbackup crashes while trying to compress files with tar _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
