Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54232
patches in rsync 2.4.6 break some functionality.
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:23:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
rsync does not understand ''
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
$ rsync 'firstname.lastname@example.org::beta/enigma/iso/enigma-i386-disc.iso'
ERROR: module is read only
unexpected EOF in read_timeout
-rw-r--r-- 677961728 2001/09/24 13:27:57 enigma-i386-disc1.iso
-rw-r--r-- 669429760 2001/09/24 13:43:48 enigma-i386-disc2.iso
If rsync 2.5.6-5 is built without patches, this particular functionality
I did not investigate which patch causes the problem.
Probably the patch for 51801....
I tried on original 2.4.6:
$ touch a
$ mkdir destination
$ rsync '[a]' destination
link_stat [a] : No such file or directory
However with redhat rsync server
$ rsync 'user@server::section/[a]' .
works as expected.
patches from RH 7.2 reverse the problem, not eliminate it.
when parsing an ipv6 address, it's usually enclosed in 's, like
[3ffe:ffff::1]/64. If the ipv6
support changed the cndline parser in this aspect, it might have broken
Is this only a problem talking to rsync servers?
This seems to work for me with 2.5.0 (http://people.redhat.com/notting/rsync/) -
please reopen if it fails for you.
