    restoring a backup

    Hi guys,

    A couple of days ago I made a backup of my database via mythbuntu control center, Now I tried to restore it it gives me the following error(I also oticed everytime I make a backup it is only 1.2KB in size!!)

    Code:
    org.freedesktop.DBus.Python.RuntimeError
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/dbus/service.py", line 702, in _message_cb
        retval = candidate_method(self, *args, **keywords)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/MythbuntuControlCentre/backend.py", line 252, in scriptedchanges
        for item in plugin_dictionary:
    RuntimeError: dictionary changed size during iteration
    I am using mythbuntu 11.04. Any idea guys how to fix this please?

    Thanks.

    If you backed up the database then that is way too small for a backup. The backup file is just a regular tar.gz file. You should be able to open it up and see what is inside.

    If you didn't back up the database, then that could be the correct size. It is only backing up certain config files and text is pretty compressable.

    As for the error message, that should have been fixed in 11.04, but I can't find the commit. I'm looking into that.

    Re: restoring a backup

    similar problem. I am also running 11.4 and the backup file was only 6k.

    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/dbus/service.py", line 702, in _message_cb
        retval = candidate_method(self, *args, **keywords)

    thanks

    Re: restoring a backup

    What OS did you backup from?

    Did you select the backup DB option?

    Can you send me a copy of the backup file ( tgm4883 DOT mythbuntu DOT org )

    Re: restoring a backup

    I backed up the database from a different computer running 11.4. Originally the computer was running 10.10 then had mythtv upgraded to .25 then had the ubuntu upgraded to 11.4. I used mythbuntu control centre and checked the backup database box. Message sent.
    thanks for the help
