You know what makes me mad about Linux is that what works on one operating system will not work on another. Take for tonight as an example. I have a new backup server running Fedora Core 4 that I am configuring that will have a mirror setup of the server that this domain runs under.
I have never setup a Mirror on my own, and have been having fun getting it ready until tonight. Well I was ready to do a rsync and found a great tutorial on it. All goes well till I get to the point of running rsync on the mirror box. I run the rsync command with all the variables, it connects with the master box, the master box gives the response it should, I enter the password for the user and bam “Permission Denied”
Ok I think what the heck did I do wrong, so I cross check passwords, triple check passwords look at dir/user permissions everything is perfect and guess what. It still is flipping me the bird.
Linux will never ever ever ever ever ever grow out of being a geek operating system! So what to do? Well tomorrow I will call my buddy who is a guru and say what did I do wrong. Invariably he will spend about a hour on it, and we will find out that something stupid prevented it to work.
It is times like these at 8:10pm Hawaiian Standard Time that I hate Linux.
