sftp -p error in duplicity 0.4.2-5.fc6
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Upgrading to the recently released 0.4.2-5.fc6 breaks sftp support. The error
sftp: illegal option -- p
The command duplicity is calling is:
'echo -e 'cd dir/
ls -1' | sftp -p 22 -b - sitename'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try any sftp based backup.
I haven't tested this particularly thoroughly. I downgraded to the previous
release (0.4.2-3.fc6) and it works again. I left it at that.

Can you please try to replace your "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/duplicity/
backends.py" file by the attachment above and re-try to see whether the problem
is solved? Please note, that duplicity the first time should be executed as root
to re-generate the backends.pyc and backends.pyo files caused by my change.
Could you also tell me the command how are you calling duplicity itself? I never
used the sftp support and so I'm ending up in: Unknown protocol 'sftp' :(

Ush...please ignore what I wrote, the whole patch is heavily broken, even if
the original idea of the author was very good.
Your problem should disappear in 0.4.2-6 again...sorry!
Great, thanks for the super swift response, I'll hold off upgrading till I see
0.4.2-6 pop up in the repo... :)
