rsync --files-from issue (v2.6.9)
Ok so the lowdown on what I want to achieve.
I have a process which builds up a list of files that need to be sync'd across various boxes, the directory structure is the same across all machines.
so file containing the files might look like
so i use rsync with the following command
rsync -avR --files-from=filelist.txt / user1@box2:/
it copies the files across file, but gives me a non-zero exit code and this message appears
rsync: delete_file: rmdir "/mnt/media/pics/house" failed: Directory not empty (39)
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(977) [sender=2.6.9]
any ideas? I have a feeling im not using rsync properly, I can't let it delete the dirs anyway because there will be other files that arent being sync'd by still exist.
