Description of problem:
diskcheck returns without perfoming any action.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.LANG=C LC_ALL=C python -vd /etc/cron.hourly/diskcheck

Actual Results:  # /usr/lib/python2.2/encodings/aliases.pyc matches
import encodings.aliases # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.2/encodings/aliases.pyc
Python 2.2.1 (#1, Aug 30 2002, 12:15:30) 
[GCC 3.2 20020822 (Red Hat Linux Rawhide 3.2-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
/etc/cron.hourly/diskcheck: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation
# /usr/lib/python2.2/string.pyc matches /usr/lib/python2.2/string.py
import string # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.2/string.pyc
import strop # dynamically loaded from /usr/lib/python2.2/lib-dynload/strop.so

Expected Results:  diskcheck should have reported on file systems which are more
than 90% full.

Hopefully fixed with:

Comment 2 Axel Thimm 2002-11-26 13:22:28 UTC
I did rebuilt 1.4-1 on Red Hat 8.0 and the same error persists.

Is the problem perhaps within python 2.2.1 itself, or some module of it?
(I hesitate a bit to upgrade to rawhide's python, as so many redhat tools depend
on python)

Comment 3 Axel Thimm 2002-11-26 13:30:15 UTC
Correction: The warning messages are still there, but diskcheck works
nevertheless. Thanks!
