Description Chris Rode 2001-10-25 00:52:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)

Description of problem:
Diskcheck gives the following traceback when run while filesystems (SMB 
shares) containing a '$' character are mounted.  When these filesystems 
are not mounted, no error occurs.  I don't know python well enough to 
provide a patch, however.

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/etc/cron.hourly/diskcheck", line 65, in ?
    (volume, total, used, avail, pct, mountpt) = string.split(line)
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

Mounted filesystems:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount an SMB share with a '$' in the share name
2. Run diskcheck

Actual Results:  Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/etc/cron.hourly/diskcheck", line 65, in ?
    (volume, total, used, avail, pct, mountpt) = string.split(line)
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

Expected Results:  No traceback should have been produced.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Alexandre Oliva 2001-10-26 03:12:12 EDT
The problem is not the `$', but the fact that df breaks the output line if the
`Filesystem' field is too wide.  The solution is to use `df -P', so that it
doesn't do it.
