Mint Backup Tool stopped working [Solved]

Postby willie42 on Sun Jun 19, 2011 3:23 pm

I have an issue that I can't resolve. Its most likely a simple fix that I am not thinking of :shock: I am using LMDE 32 bit My backup tool worked last month and I went to use it today and it has stopped working. when I click on it in the menu nothing happens. I am not sure of some of the updates have effected it or not. I just don't what has happened to it. has anyone else had any issues or can help me figure out whats going on with it? help is much appreciated

try launching it from the terminal to see if it shows any error messages. Just run:

Code: Select all
mintbackup


Let us know what happens!

Hmmm. Perhaps try:

Code: Select all
apt-get --reinstall install mintbackup


(I'm hoping this is just a something that can be reinstalled sort of error. Haha)

Mine still won't work. It gets stuck in some sort of infinite loop everytime I try to run a software backup.
I found I can get information about what the python script does by running:

Code: Select all
python -m trace --trace YOURSCRIPT.py


so I did it with the script that gets run when you fire up mintbackup.

The output doesn't really end (the infinite loop)
Here's the output of it having been running for a couple of seconds:

https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B-tlVbsVNtQeNTRkMWI3ZWEtZDRmMi00MzA3LWFiNzktNmE2ZjdiOTYzZWM2&hl=en_US

If anyone understands what's going on in there, and can see what my problem is, I would be very appreciative.
:(
No upgrade has solved this problem yet.
