When using rsync to get a list of files (which means --list-only is
either given or implied) from
stage::opensuse-full-really-everything/opensuse we get this:
lrwxrwxrwx 8 2009/10/29 06:26:06 distribution/11.2/repo/oss/boot/i386/branding
lrwxrwxrwx 8 2009/06/16 22:46:03 factory-snapshot/repo/oss/boot/i386/branding
lrwxrwxrwx 8 2009/06/16 22:46:03 factory/repo/oss/boot/i386/branding
Note the difference in timestamps between the first and the other two.
*However* all 3 files are hardlinks to the same inode, as shown by
All file creation and updates are done by rsync, which means it's
rsync that is creating the hardlinks. Therefore there is a
contradiction between what rsync does with the files and its own
The problem has been going on for weeks. It also happens with
initrd-xenpae and vmlinuz-xenpae in the same directory and in the
x86_64 one. BTW, they're all hardlinks to inodes that are symlinks.
In order to see if this bug is due to rsync I'd like to see a listing of
these files produced by something like ls -li, find or stat. Please
post it here.
