It's me, backup-boy, again.
So I've got this really weird script problem.
I have a script in /root/scripts, it uses rsync to make a backup of a specified directory.
I can run it on /home, I can run it on /tmp, but if I try /etc, it bombs, segmentation fault.
The only thing changing is the directory name.
It's always being run as root.
The exact command causing the segfault is:
$RSYNC -va --delete --delete-excluded $TOBACKUP/ $BACKUPDIR/hourly.0
with variables it should parse to:
/usr/bin/rsync -va --delete --delete-excluded /etc/ /root/backups/etc/hourly.0
the exact error it dumps out is: ( Collapse )
full script code is here
