Comment 1 Simone Caronni 2012-08-10 06:55:44 UTC

I will try to make a patch to fix it, but I will require some testing from your side as I don't have a RHEL/CentOS 5 system on which I can run 2.4.4.

I would suggest skipping entirely gnome-console from your setup and use the default bconsole for various reasons:

1) It has been deprecated in Bacula since 2007 and removed from the Bacula source in 2009, so newer releases (rhel, fedora) do not have it:



2) It does nothing that the base bconsole cannot do, it's just bconsole with a gtk2 "border" around it. For this reason it cannot be piped, so for example you cannot do the following:

echo list jobs | bconsole | grep string

3) It was never finished by the developers.


Comment 2 Simone Caronni 2012-08-10 08:30:43 UTC
I'm waiting for 2.4.4-8.el5 to enter stable, then I'll push into updates testing 2.4.4-9.el5 which has the fix for this and:


So please, when testing the update make sure to leave karm and please check that your Catalog backup job uses "/usr/libexec/bacula/make_catalog_backup.pl <catalog_name>" as the backup script in /etc/bacula-dir.conf.


Comment 3 Simone Caronni 2012-08-10 09:22:39 UTC
I'm pushing 2.4.4-10.el5 with the fixes. Editing of the config file was removed [1], so when updating please modify the following in your /etc/bacula-dir.conf file; it has been the default since version 3.x.


  # This creates an ASCII copy of the catalog
  # WARNING!!! Passing the password via the command line is insecure.

  # Arguments to make_catalog_backup are:

  RunBeforeJob = "@scriptdir@/make_catalog_backup @db_name@ @db_user@"


  # This creates an ASCII copy of the catalog
  # Arguments to make_catalog_backup.pl are:
  #  make_catalog_backup.pl <catalog-name>
  RunBeforeJob = "/usr/libexec/bacula/make_catalog_backup.pl MyCatalog"
