Error using path directive against an empty root


I'm encountering a problem that looks to be a well-known bug dating back quite a
while:

http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/pipermail/unison-hackers/2006-May/000447.html

Simply put, if you specify in a profile:

path = a/b

Where a/b exists on one root, but the other root is empty (i.e never been
sync'ed) Unison reports an error:

'path a/b is not valid because a is not a directory in one of the replicas.'

I'm not sure what is causing this, since the error doesn't appear unless you
explicitly specify a path in the profile.

Is there any chance this bug could be given some priority for fixing, as it
means that at present the folders have to be created manually in advance, which
can be a very slow and painful process across large roots.

Thanks,

Matthew

quick version compatibility question ....

Hello,

I have  a fair number of clients deployed around the world running unison 2.13.16.

I am thinking of upgrading all of my server side systems to 2.27.57.

Will all of the 2.13.16 clients out in the field continue to function properly without being 
upgraded ?  I would like to avoid a costly and time-consuming migration for all of these 
disparate systems.

Thanks.

To be honest, I'm not sure.

I ran into a " Error in canonizeRoot:,The operation completed
successfully., [socket()]" error, reverting to an older version resolved
the problem.

I haven't a clue where to go to attempt to address that one, so for the
moment, I am stuck.

In short, no.  As I understand it, in older versions of unison you
needed a full x.y.z match, in current versions you need an x.y match.

However, you could potentially run 2.27.57 and 2.13.16 on the server at
once and migrate clients at your leisure.

Unison doesn't find libgtk-win32.0.0.dll

Hello,

In attempting to run Unison on a window xp sp3 setup, the program is unable to locate
libgtk-win32.0.0.dell.  gtk-runtime-2.12.08reva.exe has 
been installed, so libgtk-win32.0.0.dll is present, so it might not be in the correct location.  

Since the program quits immediately, I have no idea of any configuration
option.  Can anyone provide any suggestions or solutions to this problem?

Thank you,

Backup paths

Question,

If I'm syncing "/archive", and I have a file "/archive/foo/bar/file",
can backups be configured so the file will wind up in
"/archive/.backups/foo/bar/file"?

I don't want ".backups" directories littered throughout my archive, so
I'm using backuplocation = central with backupdir = /archive/.backups.
However, Unison does not keep the full path in the backups directory,
it just dumps the file there, so files backed up from different paths
just mingle together. Is there a way to change this?

Thank you,

-Ryan

Files being deleted

Hello,

I am a new user to unison and in majority it works just fine.
There is, however, a problem when trying to synchronize a diretory on
my Laptop with a directory on a Desktop (which is actually a
sshfs-mounted partition of a third computer).
I start the process on my Laptop and when unison is "waiting for
changes from server", certain files in a directory are deleted, before
I have been asked what to do with it! How can that happen? Isn't
usinon just checking while "waiting for these changes"? How can I
solve this issue?

Cheers
  Alex

Sync both ways without deleting files on either side in batch mode

Hi List

I'm new to unison so i hope the question will not be to idiotic...

Question: Is there an option i can specify so unison will copy only the missing files from on directory to another?

Here some details to my problem:

I do have two directories which are out of sync. Lets say that I have:
Directory "left" containing files "a" and "b"
Directory "right" containing files "a" and "c"

After unison is run i want the files "a","b" and "c" in both the "left" and the "right" directory.  When i
running unison in the cli (bash) it will ask me if it should delete or copy each problematic file and
everything is well. My problems start wen I try to use unison in batch mode (shell script). I can toggle
"-auto" to accept the default action but then unison will delete file "b" or "c" - depending on which one
left or right.

I really believe that I'm missing something obvious but i can't find it :(

Thank you very much for your help!

greetings
 Philipp

RE: Sync both ways without deleting files on either side in batch mode

It sounds like unison saw the lack of "b" in left and "c" in right as deletions and then propagated each "deletion" to the other side.  Try deleting the respective archives from the .unison directory and then try a fresh synch.
