Thanks a lot ,
This explains a lot ("--backup-dir is on the remote).
I should have guest, sorry about this.
But about the fact that it is an old version, your right but :
- on Linux I tried to install the latest version 2.6.2, but the
"configure"command did never succeed :(, some problems
about not finding a valid cc or gcc. (/lib/libgcc_s-3.2.2-20030225.so.1)
even if it is not the newst gcc lib, it should work no ?
I supose I installed the latest stable linux version (2.40.xx)
with a clarkconnect 2.2 (March/April 2004) (Redhat 9 ?)
so I do not understand the install problem. So finaly I found
the latest ".rpm" compiled package but it's only a 2.5.6 version.
- on Windows platform, I did find a light version of rsync
composed only of (rsync.exe, ssh.exe, rsetup.bat, cygwin1.dll)
that works find as you can see but it is an 2.5.1-dev .
I didn't find a newer version.
Maybe do you have some comments about the versions on
either Linux or Windows platforms ?
Thanks in advance,
PS: and thanks for the french ;)
