Hi all,

I have a problem synching a directory that as symbolic links.

The behavior is:

If a symlink is relative (like ../../file) the link is copied correctly
If a symlink is absolute (like /root/document) the link is copied like
(root/document) whithout the first slash.

By the way some link are not usable.

I use rsync 2.5.5 protocol 26 and the command is
  rsync -varlRHpogDtxP . localhost::portatile

someone known where I'm wrong

tnx in advance
