rysncd man page

Hi,

Currently on the rsync page, there's this note:

"See the rsyncd man-page for additional options (i.e., user 
authentication)."

That leads me to believe that 'man rsyncd' would produce something, when 
in fact there is no man entry for rsyncd.  There is, however, an entry 
for rsyncd.conf which is quite helpful, and, of course, one for rsync, 
which does speak a little about running rsync as a server.

Perhaps the text should be changed?

Sorry, should have mentioned that this was with version 2.6.4 of rsync 
(Don't think that would change the available man pages, but I didn't 
verify that)

Thanks for the heads-up, Jeremy. Version 2.6.3 is the same (no rsyncd
man page). I will put a note in the BZ entry and update Rsync today
and change the text to reflect the proper man page.

List of Tables

Hi all,

Mostly directed to Bruce. FYI, and a question for everyone else.

At the bottom of the SVN main BLFS page (table of contents) there is
a new List of Tables section. The only link in this section is broken.

I'm not sure that a List of Tables, when there is only one, is even
appropriate on this page.

Thoughts from others?

This is an artifact of the default xsl scripts.

> The only link in this section is broken.

And the scripts generate the link incorrectly.  It should have a a
/postlfs/ directory in it.  I suspect that either fixing the link or
removing it requires some changes to the xsl.

Manuel, can you give us some options here?

I vote for removing the TOC link, is more easy and IMHO has nosense to create 
a "List of Tables" when there is only one table.

Fixed in few minutes...

Ain't that a bitch, when the very day you update to one version of
a package, a newer version is released. :-)

I'll be updating BLFS to version 2.6.5.

Rsync requires ssh/rsh

Hi all,

Noted in the instructions for the Rsync package is only an optional
dependency for popt. Currently, there are no other dependencies.

However, it's my understanding of the rsync client is that it requires
ssh or rsh to work properly.

Am I wrong on this, or should we put the SSH package as a recommended
dependency?

The default configuration is to use ssh as the transfer client, so
if ssh is not installed, the program won't work. I'm not sure it falls
back to rsh if ssh is not found.

Suggestions, or advanced knowledge about this issue would be appreciated.

Well it definitely does use it if it's available, so I would think it 
should be at least an optional dependency.

Depend on how is configured the server that you want to conect to. 

That is very similar to CVS or Subversion. You can to use the internal 
autenthication method or a more secure external one.
