OS: SCO 5.0.6a
maybe relevant, maybe not: compiled with iconv enabled but receive an error:
iconv_open cannot open conversion file /usr/lib/nls/conv/_
trying to compile after configure --disable-iconv fails:
Undefined first referenced
symbol in file
which is due to ICONV_CONST still being defined
/usr/local/bin/rsync --temp-dir=/usr3/tmp -v --progress --bwlimit=100 --no-blocking-io -a -R --delete --force -x --exclude='/usr3/online_data/**' --exclude='/usr3/tmp/**' /usr2 /usr3 dbbu:
results in /usr2 having it's subdirectories (/usr2/me, /usr2/you, /usr2/somebodyelse) but nothing below them. /usr3 appears to be normal.
both /usr2 and /usr3 are mount points but the -x is intended to prevent mount points below them from being copied and what puzzles me is one works and one doesn't. Specifying top level non-mount points appears to work normally.
As you would expect, swapping usr2 and usr3 means usr2 works properly and usr3 gets just the top level dirs.
I sincerely hope this is a SCO issue and not worth resolving, but on the off chance it's otherwise an issue, I'm bothering to make a report. Forgive me if I missed something in the doc's, I did check!
I'll be checking this next...
I fixed the build problem late last week.
I just checked-in a fix for --on-file-system (-x) handling that I believe will fix the copy problem you reported.
Thanks for your report!
