    Is there a newer version of rsync out there?
    I keep getting "Illegal instruction" on just some directories (not all).

    Code:
    =[tivo:root]-# rsync -av /var 192.168.1.5::tivo/root
    building file list ... Illegal Instruction
    
    =[tivo:root]-# ls -l hack/bin/rsync
    -r-xr-xr-x   1 501      501        251672 Dec 20  2003 hack/bin/rsync
    =[tivo:root]-# sum /var/hack/bin/rsync
    18647   246
    
    linux% wget [url]http://tivo.samba.org/download/tridge/rsync[/url]
    linux% ls -l rsync
    -rw-r--r--   1 jms      jms        251672 Sep 18  2000 rsync
    linux% sum rsync
    18647   246
    
    I can copy /var/* using separate rsync commands, but not /var or /etc as a whole.

    I'm getting this error on some directories as well. Did you ever find a solution to the problem?

    It's been nearly 18 months since I first posted, still no answers.

    On my Philips HDR112, the symptoms are:

    Code:
    =[joe-tivo:root]-# rsync -av /var jms@192.168.1.5::tivo
    Password: 
    building file list ... Illegal Instruction
    =[joe-tivo:root]-# rsync --version
    rsync version 2.4.4  protocol version 24
    Written by Andrew Tridgell and Paul Mackerras
    On Linux, the error message is:

    Code:
    Apr 09 20:48:51 mathras rsyncd[20846]: Client is very old version of rsync, upgrade recommended. 
    Apr 09 20:48:53 mathras rsyncd[20846]: rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (4159 bytes received so far) [receiver] 
    Apr 09 20:48:53 mathras rsyncd[20846]: rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(420) 
    Transfering a small number of files works; large directories fail.

    Wanted: rsync version 2.6.x compiled for Series 1.
    Does anyone have such a beast?
