mylvmbackup.conf file tar arguments issue

Bug Description

It seems that the new version of mylvmbackup is adding it's own
tar argument of 'v' so instead of just calling 'tar' it's calling 'tar v'.
Since I had my own tar arguments that were preceded by a dash
something like tarargs=-cvf it made the command into 'tar v-cvf'
which breaks the tar command.

Thanks for the report. Indeed, this is a "gotcha" - the "v" option is added when "--quiet" is not provided. In your case, simply dropping the dash from the argument list should be sufficient. I'll take a look if this can be fixed or improved.

Changed in mylvmbackup:
assignee: nobody → Lenz Grimmer (lenzgr)
importance: Undecided → Low
milestone: none → 0.17
status: New → Confirmed
