Description Misho Krastev 2009-04-13 21:59:01 EDT
Description of problem:

After upgrading to version 1.43.3rc1, existing backup set can not complete due to apparent code error.

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


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start fwbackups
2. Use an existing backup set
3. Start the backup operation manually by clicking on "Backup Set Now", or let it run at its scheduled time
Actual results:

The operation fails. A popup window is opened at the end with the following text:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/fwbackups/fwbackups-runapp.pyw", line 1369, in on_main2BackupSetNowButton_clicked
  File "/usr/share/fwbackups/fwbackups-runapp.pyw", line 2439, in startSetBackup
    self.logger.logmsg('DEBUG', _('Thread returned with retval %s' % self.backupThread.retval))
TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

Expected results:

Backup operation should complete successfully.

Additional info:

Before the upgrade today to version 1.43.3rc1 backups were running fine.

I can't seem to reproduce this on my machine - can you please export the affected set(s) and attach the configuration files there? You may want to edit the files and remove the "RemotePassword=" key if needed.

Backup set that fails to complete

One backup set is attached.

I just noticed that the operation fails while (or even after) sending the file to the backup destination. The last line that shows up in the log is this:

Apr 14 12:20:56 :: DEBUG : Sending files to server via SFTP

The backup file actually appears in the backup destination, and it seems to be in good order.
Comment 3 Stewart Adam 2009-05-24 14:16:05 EDT
I found the bug causing the error, this will be fixed in 1.43.3rc2.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2009-06-09 11:31:01 EDT
fwbackups-1.43.3-0.3.rc2.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:40:05 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
