 Bug in simulation

 
 by barjac on: Jul 15 2009
 
Score 50%

The source and destination folders are reversed in the simulation report.
Here is the simulation :-
http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n287/barjac_2006/luckybu.png
And here is the real run:-
http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n287/barjac_2006/luckybu1.png
It seems that the actual run is correct - even in simulation - it is the report heading that is incorrect.
Hope you can sort it out from the images which show it all.
Cheers, Barry

Hi,

a very good program but please can you automatically create a .lzm (module) for the SLAX distribution.

This is also a perfect and easy distribution that is really perfect with luckybackup.

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,

Miguipda ;-)

Hello miguipda :)

Unfortunately I cannot deal with everything. It's physicaly impossible within the 24 hour day schedule of this planet !!

But if you are willing to help I could provide you everything you might need.
It shouldn't be that difficult. There are also tools like deb2lzm that might prove handy.

Then we can upload it at LB home page or some slax community repo.

Hi,

as you answer "...There are also tools like deb2lzm...". This means it just take some minutes to generate the module. And during your multitasking job it just take 10 seconds to type the deb2lzm command and 30 seconds to upload the file. Is it too much to ask you giving a so easy created module !

Bye.

 I can't backup only some files

 
 by bbigras on: Jul 21 2009

If I try to backup only some files, let's say *.diff in my home directory and I run the simulation it seem to calculate every files in my home directory recursively.

maybe it's the "--include=*/"

Hi Bruno
:)

That is the concept behind the "only include" option !!
Everything is calculated but only the patterns you have declared are tranfered over.

The drawback is that if the source is huge and you just need a couple of files to be backed-up, you're gonna have to wait until all files of the source are "scaned".

In the end, you will end up with all *.diff files copied to the destination. If these files are inside subfolders, they will be created at the destination as well.

 Problems while installing

 
 by Bobbb on: Jul 24 2009

hi everybody,

I am using PCLinuxOS 2009.2 (GNOME), and I wanted to install the .rpm-file. The following errors appear:
libstdc++.so.6 is needed...
rtld (GNU_HASH) is needed...

Amazingly the libstdc++.so.6 can be found in /usr/lib/

Wrong path?
Do I have a possibility to create a symlink?
Any other ideas?
Thx for your help
Steff

Hi Steff,

Please excuse my late reply but I was away for my honeymoon !!

Have you figured out a solution yet ??
If not, I'm ready to install PClinuxOS (VM) to see if I can offer some advice

I'm using pclinuxos 2009 Normal (kde),
and I had problems too. I just compiled from source, and that went fine.
So just compile from source.

 Cron?

 
 by rayman on: Sep 6 2009
 
Score 50%

Nice program!
But, how can you make a cron task, if my username is in /etc/cron.deny?
I can't use crontab -e, or crontab -l.
I looked into scheduleDialog.cpp, but couldn't really find how you got the Cronfile variable.
But anyway, how do you do that?

Thanks

hi rayman,

first have a look here:
http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/manual.html#cronItCrontabInfo
(espesially the "NOTE")
It might prove useful.

If your username is listed in the cron.deny file, then unfortuantely you are not able to execute cronjobs.
(As a result you won't be able to make a luckybackup schedule)
You have to remove it from there.
Also if the file /etc/cron.allow exists your username has to be listed there

Thanks for your quick response.
But, I can't do crontab -e or crontab -l,
as user, but luckybackup can cron with crontab, or edit the crontab file.

Lets make one thing clear first:
LB actually executes the "crontab" command to mess with the user's" crontab as soon as you press the "cronIT" button.
The "user" is the one that executed LB !!

So if the user does not have any authorization to the crontab (cause he/she) is listed in the cron.deny file, then LB cannot do more. It cannot create cronjobs if the user that started it, is not allowed to !!

***code info****
( cause I noticed you messed with that ;-) )
have a look at the scheduleDialog.cpp - function "createCron".
This uses a qprocess (cronProcess) to execute actual crontab bash commands.

The "cronFile" variable is a qfile that represents a useful LB file (~/.luckybackup/schedule/luckyCron.txt)
What happens is:
1. LB reads the user's crontab in a string variable
2. It removes LB entries (if they already exist) from that variable
3. What's left from that string variable is fed into this cronFile and then new LB entries are added
4. This cronFile replaces the user's crontab !!

It might sound a weird way of thinking, but believe me, it solved a lot of issues :)

Well, the strange thing is, that it DOES execute cronned tasks, but it hasn't got the right to do that.
I can't find any text from ~/.luckyBackup/schedule/luckyCron.txt in another file (using kfind).
So that would mean the task is executed at a later time, while it doesn't cron the task.

Thanks for your help, but I found the (problem? Not really) something.
I planned in luckybackup a backup for tommorow, but after a few minutes I got a backup of the file. This is kinda strange, as the file didn't appear right after the pressing the cronIt! button.
I even exited luckybackup, but still the file appeared five minutes later.

Thanks for your help again, and you made a great program!

 'manage backup' task

 
 by quarkslot on: Sep 25 2009
 
Score 50%

Hello luckyb,

Version 3.3 has an option on the main window labelled 'manage backup' which is not mentioned in the user's manual, what is the purpose of this option?

It would be useful if the version number was listed in the user's manual.

Thanks

Nick

Hi Nick,

If the version of the manual is not mentioned, then it is the same as the main app.
Sometimes, I release a new app version with the previous manual. When that is the case, it is made clear from the manual's title that it actually refers to an older version.

The "manage backups" options is not referred to at the manual, cause it's not used (yet). When its ready you're going to be able to :
1. See when you have backed up a specific task (date-time).
2. Browse these backups independently (they're actually going to be snapshots)
3. Have a look at the log file of each one of them
4. Delete a backup
5. restore whatever file you want (or all), by selecting check-boxes

Please excuse me if that button is confusing :(

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
