Hi Grant

The last releases of rdiff-backup were Feb 2009 (1.2.8 and 1.3.3) so these *should* have included the fix described in the thread you found. But maybe it wasn't included or maybe it doesn't work - or maybe you have verbosity set to 5 or higher (though this does not appear from the line you gave).

Anyway the error message is not significant, I suggest that (as another poster suggested in the same thread) you just filter the output through a pipe to remove messages relates to .gvfs thus:

rdiff-backup --... / /media/usbdisk/repository|grep -v "^ListError.*/\.gvfs"

I'm using this line to back up my files:

rdiff-backup --exclude '/home/grant/.gvfs' --include '/etc' --include '/home/grant/backup' --include '/var/lib/portage/world' --include '/usr/src/linux/.config' --exclude '/*' / /media/usbdisk/repository

I get this even though the file's path is excluded:

ListError home/grant/.gvfs [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/grant/.gvfs'

I found this thread from 2008 which describes the problem and indicates that the fix was committed to CVS:


I'm on rdiff-backup-1.3.3.  Is there a good way to avoid this error?
