Good morning all,

I¹m using rsync v3.0.0 on both ends.  The source is Fedora Core 4 and the
destination is MacOS 10.5.2.  I¹m trying to sync a file system with roughly
5,000,000 files checking in about 1.2TB.

I use the command rsync ­avP ­e shh root at mustang:/filevault . From my MacOS
machine and I get the following after about 400GB has been copied:

filevault/visionpro/release/4.7.2_fedora-LINUX-g/include/libinc/MySQL.H ->
filevault/visionpro/release/4.7.2_fedora-LINUX-g/include/libinc/libRTM.h ->
filevault/visionpro/release/4.7.2_fedora-LINUX-g/include/libinc/librtm.h ->
filevault/visionpro/release/4.7.2_fedora-LINUX-g/include/libinc/mysql.h ->
overflow: linkname_len=2751
ERROR: buffer overflow in recv_file_entry [receiver]

rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 5 bytes [generator]: Broken pipe
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(1500)

What am I missing?
