Description Renaud Métrich 2018-12-04 10:20:53 UTC
Description of problem:

Usually $BUILD_DIR hosted on /tmp and hence automatically excluded from the backup.
When specifying $TMPDIR, $BUILD_DIR was not excluded from the backup.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Specify a TMPDIR alternate directory in environment or /etc/rear/{local,site}.conf

  # mkdir /temporary
  # TMPDIR=/temporary rear mkbackup

2. Check the backup content

  # tar tzvf /path/to/the/backup.tar.gz | grep "^temporary/rear"

Actual results:

  drwxr-xr-x root/root                0 2018-12-04 10:44 temporary/rear.XXX

Expected results:

  No rear temp directory
