Description Peter Mardahl 2001-03-16 15:08:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)

I get this error message when one I run rsync like this:
/usr/bin/rsync -a --delete  /scratch1/* /scratch1bak

/scratch1 is an NFS mounted filesystem, /scratch1bak is local.
Both kernels are Linux 2.4.2.

The error is:

unexpected EOF in read_timeout

rsync version 2.4.6 that I compiled myself WORKS.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up two systems with RedHat 7 + updates and kernel 2.4.2
2. Mount a filesystem from one to the other via NFS
3. Try to rsync from the NFS filesystem to a local one

Actual Results:  rsync exited having done no actual copying/syncing of

Expected Results:  /scratch1bak should have had a mirror of /scratch1/*

rsync-2.4.6 has been in rawhide for a while.
