    [SOLVED] fwbackups incremental backup error log on CentOS

    I use fwbackups to set backup sets, and this is what I got after a schedueled backup in the log:

    Dec 14 02:00:02 :: INFO : Starting automatic backup operation of set `Projects INCR BKP' 
    Dec 14 02:00:02 :: WARNING : There was an error while performing the backup! 
    Dec 14 02:00:02 :: ERROR : Traceback (most recent call last):   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/fwbackups/operations/", line 698, in start   pkgListfiles = self.createPkgLists()   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/fwbackups/operations/", line 85, in createPkgLists   fh = tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile(suffix='.txt', prefix="%s - tmp" % _('rpm - Package list'), delete=False)   TypeError: NamedTemporaryFile() got an unexpected keyword argument 'delete'  
    Dec 14 02:00:02 :: INFO : Canceling the current operation! 
    Dec 14 02:00:02 :: INFO : Finished automatic backup operation of set 'Projects INCR BKP'
    I should also add that I tried to install fwbackups using source compile and failed at first for not adding a certain option for the configure command (--prefix=/usr), and succeeded after adding the option. But I might have forgot to clean after the first bad installation, would this have anything to do with this error?

    This is something that I get when starting fwbackups from the terminal as root:

    libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

    The issue has been solved in the new release of fwbackups 1.43.4 for systems using python 2.4 such as CentOS 5.x.
