Compiling on a Cobalt RaQ1

Hello, I've downloaded version 2.5.2 and I tried compiling that one on a Cobalt RaQ1 server (maybe anyone has heard of them, they have that neat blue front). What I want is to make the RaQ1 a remote backup server, so I thought Rsync would be usefull... The compilation did not work, it

Try it without --delete-after. I'm pretty sure that --delete-after also affects --force, so I think it's trying to write to the directory pointed to by the symlink, which doesn't exist. I could be wrong, but that looks like the most likely interaction. Tim Conway [EMAIL PROTECTED]

New options are usually handled by just letting the remote side fail when it doesn't understand the option, as you're doing. Perhaps you just shouldn't include it with -a. At a minimum, you'd need to update the rsync.yo and rsync.1 versions of the man page before it could be accepted. - Dave

Don't use rsync 2.5.2, it's got some serious problems. They're fixed in the 2.5.3pre* versions in the preview directory on the rsync sources download site. Unfortunately we don't make binaries except for released versions releases though, sorry. The Solaris251 binaries in the rsync binaries

I like link-dest, and the - for exclude-from/include-from was already something I was planning to add one of these days along with the --files-from option I still plan to write, but --compare-perms confuses me. Can you give examples of when you need it? - Dave Dykstra On Thu, Mar 07, 2002 at
