Default rsync CR upgrade

Hello

Is anyone else having problems on 5.6 using the new rsync from the CR repo
I have only managed to get rsync (called from the cli) working again
after downgrading it to the previous 2.x release as the newer version
was just spitting out the ssh usage information and failing.
This server is stock i386 with just the CR as an extra repo.

regards

mike

Known issue I'm guessing:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=724041

which was fixed nearly a month ago.

If this is your issue, try appending username@host like so:

rsync user@host:/

as a workaround, but I'm not sure why CentOS is still shipping an old
broken version?

So instead of saying nearly a month ago how about we we say it was only
released 20 days ago. BZ says it was released 03 Aug 11.

Umm, maybe because upstream shipped rsync-3.0.6-4.el5.i386.rpm with 5.7 and
the rsync-3.0.6-4.el5_7.1.i386.rpm has not made it to CentOS yet.

Remember that bug for bug compatibility thing. :-)

Patience is a virtue.
