So I’m trying to use rsync to backup stuff on my various servers out there to my newly acquired external disks. Just in case the hosting providers are having backup issues. ;)

The source system is a GNU/Linux system using ext3, the target is a Mac using HFS+. That is, the target uses a slightly modified normal form D instead of normal form C UTF-8 , and the target is not case sensitive – it is case-preserving only. The mind recoils in fear!

The first part of the problem is addressed in the rsync FAQ rsync recopies the same files:

	rsync --archive --verbose --compress  --delete --delete-excluded \
	--exclude '/org.emacswiki/logs' \
	--iconv=UTF-8,UTF8-MAC \
	aschroeder@thinkmo.de:/org/org.emacswiki thinkmo.de

Except:

        rsync: --iconv=UTF-8,UTF8-MAC: unknown option

Oh no, here we go again… :(

Update: Building rsync from source was painless. Yay!!

But now:

        rsync: on remote machine: --iconv=UTF8-MAC: unknown option

Noooo!
