Thread: Yast Automatic Backup Not Working

    Default Yast Automatic Backup Not Working

    I created a profile for Yast Backup and successfully executed it manually. However, when I set up the Automatic Backup with the same profile it doesn't work. It will start at the scheduled time and do the "search" part of it but it hangs before it creates the archive. These two processes (backup_cron & y2base) remains running and never terminates.

    Here are the last few lines in the Yast log before it hangs:

    I'm using 64bit 11.2 with KDE Factory.

    My other computer is using 32bit 11.2 KDE and it works fine so I assume the problem is either the 64bit or KDE Factory.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Since Factory is experimental versions I'd report the problem to the developers.

    An update from 4-5 days ago must've fixed it. I didn't change anything and it's been backing up automatically for the last 3 days.
