I want to use rsync2.6.0 in fedora core 1.0. And I install it 
by "configure --with-rsh=rsh;make;make install".But when I run
it as follow:
bash$ rsync -avz ./
@ERROR: chdir failed
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (33 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)

What can I do to fix the problem? Thanks a lot!

"/etc/rsyncd.conf" file in as follow 
uid = nobody
gid = nobody
max connections = 4
pid file = /var/run/
lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
uid = nobody
gid = nobody
path = /home/huaz/rsync-2.6.0/  
comment = For test
use chroot = no
ignore errors                  
read only = yes
list = no                      
#auth users =    
#hosts allow = 
#secrets file =
