I just released a set of patches for BackupPC 2.1.2.
This also includes the fixes in the prior pl0 patch.
The patches can be applied to a fresh 2.1.2 release
by downloading the single file BackupPC-2.1.2pl1.diff
from http://backuppc.sourceforge.net and following the
instructions in that file. BackupPC should then be
re-installed from the fresh, patched, release.
The patched version is reported as "2.1.2pl1".
I've attached the list of issues fixed in the patch.
- Added patch from Michael (mna.news) to ignore "file is unchanged"
message from tar 1.15.x during incremental backups.
- Fixed creation of .rsrc directories in bin/BackupPC_tarExtract
when used with xtar on MacOS. Reported by Samuel Bancal and
Matthew Radey, who helped with debugging.
- Fixed bug in BackupPC_tarExtract for files >8GB in size whose
lengths are multiples of 256. Reported by Jamie Myers and
Marko Tukiainen, who both helped debugging the problem.
- Fixed bug in lib/BackupPC/Xfer/RsyncFileIO.pm that caused
incorrectly deleted attributes to be set in directories
where one of the files had an rsync phase 1 retry during
an incremental. Reported by Tony Nelson.
