Description Nigel Horne 2005-11-27 13:09:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041207

Description of problem:
If the target filesystem (e.g. FAT32) doesn't support modification times, mysqlhotcopy fails, since 
$cp.= " -p" if $^O =~ m/^(solaris|linux|freebsd|darwin)$/;
will fail. It should try to use the -p flag, but have a fall back if it fails.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mysqlhotcopy to a target FAT32 filesystem, e.g. a windows formatted floppy

Actual Results:  Files failed to copy

Expected Results:  Files should have copied

Additional info:

Works OK if the target is ext2, and it works OK if you remove the bogus line:
$cp.= " -p" if $^O =~ m/^(solaris|linux|freebsd|darwin)$/;

However that is only a workaround, since -p shoudl be used *where available*.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
