Description Brian Lane 2012-11-05 22:59:49 UTC
In the live install of Anaconda we use rsync to copy the install over to the target system. We bind mount /dev/ /proc/ /sys/ and a number of things under /dev/. When running rsync using -x (single file system) we get some errors:

Adding these directories as --excludes works, but isn't it an error that -x doesn't skip them?

Comment 1 Michal Luscon 2013-02-08 15:10:37 UTC
This is know rsync issue caused by using stat() function for recognizing filesystem boundaries. Upstream advise to use excludes as you already did.
