Hmm, looks like I'm not done with this, yet.
With rsync 3.02, it works fine:
rsync --exclude='/*/' --delete-before -tvlpr
But not with the 2.6.9 version :|
I just get this, with the mirror completely outdated:
receiving file list ... done
sent 92 bytes received 518 bytes 93.85 bytes/sec
total size is 11592052049 speedup is 19003364.01
I would rather like to keep this version, since it's the one that
comes with the distro, if possible. Help!
