Description masuch 2012-05-03 16:58:30 UTC

I have been rsyncing linux OS and have got error:

--- one of the lines like followed:
rsync: rsync_xal_set: lsetxattr(""/media/raid0.jfs1/var/www"","security.selinux") failed: Operation not supported (95)

I have read some workaround how to manage this error on:

BUT ACL is possible to setup only for ext4 and resiserfs filesystems.
BUT it is possible to use it for btrfs , jfs and xfs filesystems.

If it is not bug ?
How to manage it for btrfs , jfs ,xfs filesystems if ACL is not possible to setup for mounting ?

thank you,
kind regards,

I have to reconsider previous post - it is bug for ext4 system as well.

On a modern rsync you would specify xattr exclusions for security.* and system.* in some filter rules:

-f'-x security.*' -f'-x system.*'
