Description Paul Coccoli 2009-12-11 15:30:27 UTC
Description of problem:
The check for an already running process always succeeds, because it detects itself.  So the script always exits with value 1, and never does anything useful, as far as I can tell.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. backup-light
Actual results:
Error: Backup-light is already running, running it again would be pointless

Expected results:
Preforms the backup with all default settings.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 09:47:10 UTC
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
