Description Davide Rondini 2009-08-21 17:17:01 UTC
Description of problem:
After last update of fwbackups, my automatic daily backup set stopped to work. Every time cron job is activated, I receive a system mail reporting this error:

Cron <davide@quad> fwbackups-run -l 'Home Davide'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fwbackups-run", line 25, in <module>
    from fwbackups.i18n import _
ImportError: No module named fwbackups.i18n

The error started since last update some days ago, fwbackups worked fine before.
If I start the program and do the backup manually, everything wokrs fine, and the log window confirms that automatic backup has not been done.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name       : fwbackups
Arch       : noarch
Version    : 1.43.3
Release    : 0.5.rc3.fc10
Repo       : installed
From repo  : updates

How reproducible:
Always after update

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a backup set associated to a cron job
2. Update to latest version of fwbackups
3. Wait for the planned backup time
Actual results:

Expected results:

Thanks for reporting this, I'll fix it tonight. In the mean time, symlinking /usr/share/fwbackups to /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages should workaround the problem.

Comment 2 Stewart Adam 2009-08-21 19:47:14 UTC
Erm, just to be clear I mean symlink the /usr/share/fwbackups directory into the /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages, creating /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/fwbackups.

Comment 3 Davide Rondini 2009-08-22 16:34:02 UTC
I tried linking as you said both in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-package or in /usr/lib64/python2.5/site-package, but the problem wasn't fixed.

I have Python 2.5.2 (standard Feroda 10 Package), I don't know if this matters...

Comment 4 Stewart Adam 2009-08-22 20:58:23 UTC
I've just built 1.43.3rc4, so you can remove the symlink(s) and grab it from updates-testing soon.
