Description Bernard Johnson 2009-08-21 19:17:50 UTC
Description of problem:
Every since I updated to 1.43.3, I get this messages when a backup attempts to run.

Aug 21 10:17:12 :: ERROR : Error(s) occurred while backing up path ''/home/bjohnson''.
Please check the error output below to determine if any files are incomplete or missing.
Aug 21 10:17:12 :: ERROR : Output:
Return value: 1
stderr: tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
tar: Removing leading `/' from hard link targets
tar: /home/bjohnson: file changed as we read it

I also verified that it happens when I manually run it too.

I updated to this version on Aug 15, and no backup has been successful since then.

Have you upgraded the 'tar' package recently as well? What happens if you run the backup when you're logged out?

Comment 2 Bernard Johnson 2009-09-12 03:42:14 UTC
tar-1.22-4.fc11                               Mon 27 Jul 2009 12:10:36 AM MDT

I will try running the backup while logged out.

I can't really explain it - but this started working again with any changes on my part.  So I'm closing the bug.
