Description Andreas Kupfer 2006-07-07 22:31:52 EDT
Description of problem:

When trying to run rsnapshot on FC5 i get the following error.

[root@marlin backup]# rsnapshot daily
/bin/cp: angegebenes Ziel „/backup/daily.1/“ ist kein Verzeichnis: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht 
rsnapshot encountered an error! The program was invoked with these options:
/usr/bin/rsnapshot daily
ERROR: /bin/cp failed. Perhaps this is not GNU cp?
ERROR: Error! cp_al("/backup/daily.0/", "/backup/daily.1/")

According to http://bugs.donarmstrong.com/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=339845 this is fixed 
upstream. The attached Patch from above location fixes the problem for me.

1.2.9 is available in rawhide for testing, and fixes this bug.  I'm not yet
comfortable pushing it out to the stable branch, but will likely do so within a
few weeks.
