  • innobackupex --incremental errors listing directory

    Hi,

    Using innobackupex 1.6 with an invocation of the form:

    innobackupex --no-timestamp \
    --incremental $INCREMENTAL_DIR \
    --incremental-basedir $FULL_DIR

    I get errors like:

    ...
    ls: cannot access ... : No such file or directory
    Use of uninitialized value $inc_dir in scalar chomp at /usr/bin/innobackupex line 1657.
    ...

    I tracked it down and innobackupex is shelling out to perl to list $INCREMENTAL_DIR which it does not need to do in this case. I believe the errors are harmless, but in the hopes that it might help someone else I've attached a patch that worked for me (caveat: not thoroughly tested, use at own risk. etc...)

Working...
