Description Padraig Houlahan 2010-03-24 11:35:56 UTC
I have been trying to develop some backups using the link-dest option, and I keep getting a response the option is unknown. I'm running fedora 12 and have the latest rsync.

For example, a simple test fails with:

# rsync -az --list-dest=../dir1 dir_s/ dir_d
rsync: --list-dest=../dir1: unknown option
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1425) [client=3.0.7]


About the host system...

You misspelled --link-dest.

never mind

it should be link-dest (not list-dest)

The option was mistyped.
