I don't know when it broke.

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install diskcheck-1.2.1 on a RH 7.3 system that has all patches
2.modify /etc/diskcheck.conf to 1% so it will page
3.run diskcheck in /etc/crond.hourly

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-13 12:21:31 UTC
fixed in 1.4-1, should be no problem to run it on 7.3

Comment 2 David Dombek 2002-12-13 13:35:29 UTC

Will RedHat make 1.4-1 available on up2date any time soon?  

Comment 3 David Dombek 2002-12-20 19:52:51 UTC

When will the new diskcheck be added to up2date?

Comment 4 Tim Niemueller 2003-01-15 23:32:51 UTC
This seems to be a problem with type casts. Add the line 
defaultCutoff = long(conf['defaultCutoff'])
after the line
nPct = long(pct[:-1])
That is around line 284 (on diskcheck 1.3-2). Replace all upcoming occurrences
of "conf['defaultCutoff']" with "defaultCutoff".
That's it. If there is an updated package, why isn't that in the updates dir?

Comment 5 Dennis DeDonatis 2003-01-23 15:50:47 UTC
This is still broken in RedHat 8.0 - diskcheck v1.3.2

Three spots have to be updated to make it work with volume or mount point and 
the default cutoff:

    if cutoff.has_key(volume):
        if (nPct < long(cutoff[volume])): continue
    elif cutoff.has_key(mountpt):
        if (nPct < long(cutoff[mountpt])): continue
    elif (nPct < long(conf['defaultCutoff'])): continue

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2003-01-23 16:12:25 UTC
fixed in 1.4-1, should be no problem to run it on 7.3/8.0

Comment 7 David Dombek 2003-01-26 18:21:58 UTC
So when will it be available via up2date for RH 7.3?

Comment 8 David Dombek 2003-03-10 16:51:58 UTC
If it can be run on Red Hat7.3 why isn't in on up2date for 7.3?

Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2003-03-10 16:54:04 UTC
cause RHN-QA queue is full of security issues..
