After reading the "Datagrams" column in the March issue of SunExpert I
downloaded and compiled " rsync" on a Sun/Solaris-2.6 workstation .
(1) (using the gcc compiler) I ran "configure" (in the directory
created when I extracted the data with "tar") then,
(2) ran "/usr/ccs/bin/make" ( Is this the correct "make"? I am an
absolute newbie when it comes to this, I try to find a package and use
pkgadd, but I couldn't find one this time.)
(3) I then ran " /usr/ccs/bin/make install".
Everything looked o.k., but when I try to use the utility
rsync -ravz dir/file mach:/dir
I get the following error returned:
protocol version mismatch - is your shell clean?
But I can use rsync to update directories on my local machne.
Related info ??
Ever since I upgraded from Solaris 2.4, rcp has not worked. Is this
related?, I think It could be.
I'm have no clue. I've searched in the news groups for rsync info and
found something related to a dirty shell. Since we, as a rule, don't
use a ksh shell, and rsync does, I assume it's using
/etc/skel/local.profile for its .profile file.
I looked into SSH shell, but that looks like a whole new can-of-worms.
Is there any hope? Any help is greatly appreciated.
