Description Remi Collet 2006-01-15 16:19:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr-FR; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051228 Fedora/1.5-3.fc4.remi Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
When running a backup an error occurs :

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch mysql-adminstritor
2. create a Bakcup Project
3. Start Backup

Actual Results:  Error : "Error running backup. Cannot set ANSI quotes"

Expected Results:  Success :  "Backup written to file '/home/xxx'."

Additional info:

I'm using mysql-administrator 1.1.5 for some time (building my own RPM) and I found a problem in the source : the use of gsprintf with the same input and output buffer.

For exemple : g_sprintf(sql_mode_cmd, "%sANSI_QUOTES", sql_mode_cmd).

A solution is to use a simple strcat.

This patch solve the bug for me.

Comment 2 Remi Collet 2006-01-15 20:04:28 UTC
Version 1.1.6 is out.

myx_backup.c is the same as in version 1.1.5, so the patch is still needed.

Comment 3 Dennis Gilmore 2006-01-16 22:03:13 UTC
