We backup several FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE-p12 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Apr 29 22:02:25 UTC 2014
systems to a Debian system and have recently started receiving
the following notice:
"This rsync lacks old-style --compress due to its external zlib. Try -zz."
I tried. it died.
The messages are relatively new. Whatever changed did so
within the last week or so.
Our call to rsync starts out
rsync -qvHaz --delete
I had modified the command as follows:
rsync -zz -qvHaz --delete
this throws a syntax error and
rsync -qvHazz --delete
does nothing new probably because the first z flag satisfies the
call for compression and the second one just wastes space.
What is the best way to get compression working again?
