No executable bit set from rsync://mirrors.kernel.org/slackware/


Hi,

I'm rsync-ing my local mirror with the one from kernel.org.

I use the following:
(Please note, the actual values of variables should not matter, I'm getting the tree as expected).
Code:
rsync \
  $DRYRUN -vaz --delete \
  --log-file=$CWD/${SLKFUL}.log \
  --log-file-format="%o:./%n" \
  ${RSYNCURL}/$SLKFUL/ . || exit 1
The problem is that none of the scripts (e.g. SlackBuilds) have the executable bit set.

Is it the expected result or am I missing something?

I use for my local mirror something like:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

CWD=`pwd`

while true; do
    rsync -avz --delete --partial --progress \
        rsync.osuosl.org::slackware/slackware-14.2/ \
        $CWD/slackware-14.2

    sleep 10
done
Everything looks fine, as always. Also, bear in mind that OSUOSL is the "official mirror", and usually the first one to get fresh updates from Pat's smithy...

it looks like they are not mirroring the slackware repository correctly.

Hi,

OK, I'll either switch my mirror or try to contact kernel.org to ask for correction.
Thanks.

It's quite possible that they intentionally remove the executable bit from files they mirror, so as to prevent an accidental copy/paste or some such from executing and causing trouble. Maybe it's unlikely that such an accident would happen, and even more unlikely that it would cause a problem, but it's an easy prevention just in case. That said, I really have no idea why they're doing it. I'd offer to contact them, but the mirror contact hasn't replied the last couple of times I've queried them about stuff, so I'm not going to bother. Better luck to whoever decides to contact them.

Hi,

@rworkman OK, thanks for the info. Maybe I'll try to contact them just in case your e-mail were landing in spam.

Enlighten me: for what reason one should insist on using the Kernel.Org mirrors?

@atelszewski According with some Polish friends of mine, the OSUOSL is NOT banned in Poland, just to know...

I for one, I would show two middle fingers to their nazi mirroring and I will switch to another mirror. There are plenty.

Hi,

@Darth Probably the most important reason is that then you can format your answers so beautifully.

No luck here too.

On the other hand, OSUOSL is giving me big problems recently.
It is extremely slow or rsync does not connect at all.

I now switched to sunsite.icm.edu.pl and I'll give them a try.

BTW, http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/slackware/ has everything down to 1.01 released in 08-Nov-1993 00:00 ;-)

FWIW yesterday night (UTC+2 here) trying to find a mirror with the recent updates for 14.2 I was lucky with mirror.nl.leaseweb.net, using rsync. I had the same issue with OSUOSL as Andrzej.

It seems there are several mirrors that I use that are still not up to date (alienbase for example.)

For a couple of days I observed some problems, no mirrors were updated, rss was not updated, OSUOSL was very slow. Things were fixed a few hours ago.

Yeah, I noticed that Darren's mirror at slackware.uk was a day late with the last update. From experience I know it syncs with upstream at 12am and 12pm uk local time. Seems caught up now, but if there was a problem with osuosl that would explain why it was a day behind.
