Bug#269668: rdiff-backup: Backup to NFS directory works with 0.6.0-1, but not with 0.13.4-3 or 0.12.7-2
Followup-For: Bug #269668
After my crash problems with 0.13.4 I went to the rdiff-backup homepage at
http://rdiff-backup.stanford.edu/ and downloaded the RPM of 0.12.7.
A quick "alien rdiff-backup-0.12.7-1.i386.rpm" provided me with a *.deb
and I tried backing up with this. It crashed, too, seemingly with the
same errors (see original bug report).
Then I downgraded to 0.6.1 from stable and -- voila! -- it worked again.
So there seems to be a problem with the handling of either symbolic
links or (rather) NFS directories mounted locally.
