Query on compiling / installing rsync
will be doing it one mac but I think its the same way for others. What I am keen on is installing latest rsync with patches in /opt/rsync directory in my mac..
here is what I have understood to d
2) How to use rsync-patches??
Any ideas will be great
1) use configure --prefix /opt/rsync
The main binary will be in /opt/rsync/bin
However rsync itself does not need any libraries, configuration files etc. only a binary and optionally a man page.
as such just build it and move the binary where you want it.
Make sure your dot login profiles includes the path to the rsync binary location at the remote end, or specify the remote ends binary using a --rsync-path option on the rsync command itself.
As for patches, I have never needed to build it myself, so I couldn't tell you off-hand.
1) tar xvf rsync-3.0.8.tar.gz
2) tar xvf rsync-patches-3.0.8.tar.gz
3) cd rsync-3.0.8/
4) → Applying the 44 patches :
patch -p1 < patches/acls.diff
patch -p1 < patches/xattrs.diff
