missing iconv argument in rsync.i386 pacakge

Hey

i m trying to sync my repository with Rsync with a remote linux machine

and i need the files to have a UTF8 encoding

however , when i tried to use the ' rsync --iconv = utf8 ' option , i found that the iconv argument does not exit in rsync.i386

i tried to update the rsync app with ' yum update rsync ' but it seems i have the latest version

my rsync version is 2.6.9

rsync --version
rsync version 2.6.9 protocol version 29

any ideas as to what i should do ?

thanks

Re: missing iconv argument in rsync.i386 pacakge

It would appear that you are using Fedora 8 if yum tells you that 'version 2.6.9 protocol version 29' is the latest. Version 3.0.8 is the "latest" in the Fedora repos (or at least on the koji build server) for F13/14/15/16. Even on my EOL F12 it's version 3.0.7.

Your problem may be using the format "--iconv = utf8" (with spaces). Try it with "--iconv=utf8", as shown in the man page for rsync. And does a thorough examination of "man rsync" for your v2.6.9 not include the --iconv option? I bet if you look closely, it's there.

OK, you are right. I just downloaded rsync-2.6.9-5.fc8.i386.rpm package and extracted it and looked at the man page. "--iconv" isn't there.

You could try, as root,
Code:
rpm --nosignature -Uvh http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/rsync/3.0.3/0.fc9/i386/rsync-3.0.3-0.fc9.i386.rpm
The 3.0.3-0.fc9 version I linked to does include the --iconv option and may possibly "update" without dependency issues, assuming you're using 32 bit F8.

Re: missing iconv argument in rsync.i386 pacakge

Well, the F9 version of rsync would also need the F9 versions of glibc and popt as dependencies. You could try installing those in the same manner. The dependency chain could reach further. I kept using F8 long past it's EOL time, and had many F9 packages installed in order to be able to meet requirements for compiling newer versions of various programs. But there is a limit to what F9 packages you can properly install into F8 before the dependency chain gets way out of hand.

Re: missing iconv argument in rsync.i386 pacakge

hey,

i m thinking of upgrading my f8 to f9

are there any known issues i should be aware of? (i m only using svn, samba and apache on my server ...)

and is there a way to upgrade fedura from the GUI, all i could find on the web is upgrading from the CLI via yum , i would feel more compatible with a GUI option

Well, the biggest issue I can think of is that F9 is every bit as EOL as F8 is. It's highly unlikely you'll find any "working" mirror site repos for either one. The base reops for F8 and F9 were moved to the archives long ago.
